Anyone else think it was awesome to see him take a second, drop his bike to pick up Hahn's bike up off of him? I don't know much about him but that made me an instant fan. Hahn looked like he was close to the exhaust and maybe getting burnt. Hopefully that isn't the case.

Definitely a cool thing to do. It looked like Hahn was indeed getting burned. Lets hope he's ok.

What an awesome move. Probably the most stand up, and thoughtful move I've ever seen on a motocross track. class act.

Very cool indeed. Wasn't there a situation in supercross years ago where Tim Ferry had his helmet trapped under his bike during a heat race and a guy stopped to help unpin him?

Are you smart enough to buy a bike that costs less, weighs less, makes more horsepower per cubic centimeter, can be rebuilt for recycled aluminum can money and is giggle inducing? It is hard to believe that the American riding public flunks this test en masse. How stupid are you?

Just by the way McDade turned around, I have to imagine that Wil had some panic in his voice. I would like to say that the other 39 riders on the line would have made the same move but I'm afraid of what the true outcome would be if it had been anyone else.

That was a class act move for sure. I know allot of people don't know McDade but I have watched that guy fly on a dirt bike for a long time. Up until recently he never took his racing serious and just raced to have fun but if he keeps working hard he will show allot of people what he has. I watched him put it to Barcia at Minios and run fast's lap of the event. He has the talent that's for sure.

A friend fell on a hill once when we were riding. By time I got his bike off him the pipe gave him a burn that kept him out of work for a while. No work, no money for college. Kudos for McDade for helping Hahn.

I always thought he was from NC but I'm not sure. I know he has raced all around this area ( va,nc,sc) for years. About 5 years ago I watched him have a high speed crash at Birch Creek and he did the rag doll thing for about a 100 yards. Then he got up and shook it off and hauled ass and caught the front pack in A class. Everybody watching that day stood there with there mouth hung open like they just watched the parting of the sea.
