450 class: Can't believe how many riders are out. Don't even recognize half the field. Just off the top of my head, Barcia, Millsaps, Villopoto, Brayton. Who else? Was hoping for a little more competition but it seems to be the same 2 or 3 guys up front ... more »

One thing they have to start doing is designing tracks without blind spots. I know its tough but this is the part of the sport that needs help and more professionalism. If a rider goes down and the rider behind cannot see a downed rider then that's a ... more »

Electric bikes is a complete toss up. It may be a combination or hybrid. I don't want to see electric bikes-it just seems weird but you never know what technology will bring. I don't anticipate it at the professional level but you never know. The safety ... more »

This is just awful. So sorry. My thoughts are with the family.

I think your spot on with a camera on the bikes. I think technology will be a driving force for innovation with things we have not seen before. I think it will be more of a broadcast thing though. Imagine if every bike had a tiny camera on it and we ... more »
Added reply in a thread How can you not be a fan of Canard? 7/6/2014 6:35 PM
He seems like a great person but I am a fan of his riding. If he was a 20th place guy we wouldn't necessarily be fans of him even though he is the same person. At the end of the day we are fans of his speed and talent and then throw a great person on ... more »

Good topic. I was just thinking this watching the race the other day. I was like, man look how much this guy has been through and he keeps coming back strong and is just so naturally talented. He is probably my top 3 favorite rider. Just love him.

That's the boat I am in. I have a track in my backyard and I am terrified to ride it. Only reason I keep it up is for looks otherwise it will grow weeds like crazy. In fact I just came out from there 10 minutes ago freaking weed eating and pulling weeds ... more »

Honestly, it may be fun for you but you need to think about your family. I am sure they would much rather be doing something else than watching that. Take a family vacation instead that will be fun for all and not just you and maybe you can go back one ... more »

It always has been. Just better competition and better talent. 250f class should be the premiere class. haha

It's odd to see the veterans having a tough go as well. Reed just awful year but probably rightfully so with what he has going on. Stewart all over the place and never know what to expect week to week with him but still fast as shit.

Oooh. With a 9 month old I'm not sure if it will be worth it. Maybe when about 3 years old. Be much more fun.

I think technology will be the main thing. I look back at 20 years ago to see what racing was like compared to today. The only difference really is the bikes and evolution of the dirt of the tracks meaning they are bringing in outside soil to prep the ... more »

Would love to hear some predictions. Here are mine. 1) Emission regulations may push current bikes out of production-they will most likely still be race legal but the electric bike technology will grow leaps and bounds and take over the younger generation ... more »

He needs to calm down and think more before speaking. He is making some sentence mistakes and saying things that don't make sense. I noticed it quite a bit this race. "That was a pretty vicious crash considering they both got up" That doesn't make any ... more »

Trey is just amazing. I honestly can't believe with what he has been through and being out he is battling up front. Just goes to show how awesome he is.
