I don't think they are overdoing it at all. It's not a given that he's going to make it all the way back. It's clear that he is still having some struggles. If he becomes the dominate force in the series once again, TV should blow it up as hard as they ... more »

If you had not got hurt for the second time in 2000, how do you think that summer would have gone? My understanding is that you were training and preparing on the YZ426 and it was going great. Further to that, it a perfect world, how long do you think ... more »

That will be a sweet bike. 07-ish YZ250F shock with the HSCD and Ti spring would be a nice touch.

I'm sure Woodward and Bernstein would have also said "WTF am I supposed to do" the first time they got a denial.

No resources to investigate? It could be as simple as reaching out to some past riders, and seeing what they have to say regarding the issue? The answers you get off the record may surprise you. Recent events have shown that WADA protocols do not prove ... more »

Do you really think riders pay "trainers" $250k+ for diet advice and tips on how to practice? Do you think that riders pay people to drive motorhomes around the country just for them to hang out in during raceday?
