Added reply in a thread RV vs. AC The battle of the 2 titans 9/30/2014 7:33 PM

Not so sure about Cairoli's "prime"... 29 is definitely on the downside. But Reed I think was 29 in '11 when he came out and busted Dungey's a_ _ in Hangtown moto 2 after not racing mx full time for two years, so...

Good man. I always think back to his podcast story of bringing a homeless man home. Who does that?? Trey Canard does. His first SX win next year is gonna be amazing. There will be fist pumps--maybe from a seated position, or maybe I'll stand up.

3000 feet? Holy... Isn't that's way longer than the preview track was? With that kind of length, a turn would really be sweet - a separate turn for each rider - to keep it in front of the bleachers. Like this

Actually I think a corner like ... more »

I go through a lot of avatars, which isn't a great thing for recognition. Everyone knows peelout because his shit never changes. His image is synonymous with talking about hos and bros. As soon as you get a new avatar, it's like a mind eraser with most

Well said. My (current) avatar says 'Killola', which is a band. When I first previewed their album I am the Messer on itunes I shit my pants twice because it was so awesome. (OK, the second time it was more like a shart.) If your precious mind can't ... more »

127 nationals. I'm reading it right now! I expected the commentaries on each loss to be about twice as long as they are, but it's still a great piece, and makes me like RC more. some dude wrote: I think McGrath's reasoning is like this: People say that ... more »

Looks like either it wasn't Budds or it wasn't '91. Here's Budds '91, no double passing that I saw. (Moto 1 starts at 18:40, moto 2 at 39:40) Thanks to whatever genius in another thread posted the link to that guy's ^ Youtube channel, 'cause the race

Alrighty, alrighty. I'm not sure I'm quite satisfied with this, but I'm not quite sure what I'm not sure about. There seems to be a contradiction in what you said, but it's hard to articulate where, and it's hurting my head trying to think about it so ... more »

It's tough chopping up a good battle like this one into single passes, so I'll post the whole 5 minute battle to the finish 2009 Thunder Valley, moto 2

At first I thought Everts just said, basically, "It's too bad he 'wasn't trying'", which I didn't think was too harsh, since Stewart was playing the "I wasn't even trying" card. But now I can hear Everts said "Too bad it was you and not Ricky, Ricky ... more »

Good afternoon. I have a thread that I had planned on expanding until it is very big. But before I go too much further with it, I guess I should ask what sort of repercussions might result from such a big thread that deals primarily with videos. An anecdote:

A year or so ago someone posted a cool device that did the same job as an array, where the gopro is pointed straight UP onto a cone-shaped mirror, so you can get a 360 view from a single camera. It was extremely phat.

So should they have a double gate for STraight Rhythm, with the two riders right up next to each other? I might prefer that. Mic their helmets and get a little of this goin on

I'm going to ignore whatever (totally bullshit) implications exist in your comment and say again that Straight Rhythm looks awesome, and I'm glad I could do my part. (Red Bull say they were inspired by Excite Bike, but they know the truth!)

You never know. These outside organizations like Red Bull have fee reign to be more creative -- "creative"

Why do so many Joe Blows think they know the solutions to MX's "problems"? You're talking to the guy who gave Red Bull the idea for Straight Rhythm, so you're asking the wrong Joe. (Or at least I choose to believe that's what happened. See the bottom ... more »
