This is a bummer, but who can blame him.

We need to stop going until they move the date. The fact it's a week or two from monster cup way after our nationals is lame. Don't blame guys that don't want to go.

Dungey retired, Tomac is out and Bagget needs surgery. Our MxDN team was looking a lot better before the nationals started.

I'd like to see what type of effort we'd get with Webb after last year. I'd say he's got a bigger chip on his shoulder than anyone.

It would be good to give a reason or conditions under which he would go. Too late for this year but like others have said it appears to be schedule driven. If nothing changes I assume Tomac won't ever go again.

As long as we're just picking names out of the hat for the 3rd rider, I say Weston Peick; I heard he eats hard stuff for brunch.

I don't understand the "but who can blame him" part so many people have said. He doesn't have to go but he has chosen not to two years in a row now. That doesn't make me a bigger Eli Tomac fan. I can say that.

The only guy that makes sense from the 450 class is anderson...
Maybe Seely but I don't think he would be good on Euro tracks.
And then Osborne obviously and either Martin brother on a 450

Googlefiend,
I doubt his contract specifically says he cant go, but obliges him to too many things too close to the des Nations time. Just speculation though.
