Haha. I used to only want to ride practice days at MX. The guys I rode with all wanted to stick to woods riding and I hated woods riding. After a couple of years, I got to where I enjoyed woods riding and enjoyed MX. Now I only want to ride in the woods. ... more »

I'm racing my second TSCEC event this coming weekend. Haven't gotten to ride much over the last couple of years so it should be fun. My advice I haven't seen in this thread is learn to relax when you're in open sections and areas that flow more through ... more »

Man I was rooting that dude on so hard at the very end. I was hoping he would hold on for the W but this sport is cruel as it comes some days. Go for battling for a rookie first win in the last few corners to injured and DNF in a split second. That was ... more »

I enjoyed every second of the racing at A2. Awesome track and awesome race in the 250s. Seems like the racers buried the hatchet. But I have a feeling the crowds at the races aren't going to handle it very well for the next few rounds.

My mom: "If you can afford a motorcycle you can afford rent" Me: [moved out and bought 3 motorcycles within a year] Cool to see a lot of dudes entering the sport. I got in at 19 when I moved out and never looked back. First race ever was a cross country ... more »

Added reply in a thread Ferrandis trying to take out jett 1/20/2020 7:58 AM

Ferrandis will ride differently next week. That isn't his MO to ride like that. He's normally the appropriate amount of aggressive but I think he was just frustrated from not winning the first two rounds and went overkill at A2.

Glad someone said this. I am curious to hear from Craig where he stands on it. As the announcers said, these two guys settle things on the track. I'm sure if Craig gets the opportunity to give a little payback, he will, but I'm sure he's just thankful ... more »

Historically he has not managed his bad nights very well in the early rounds and has crushed the second half of the season. Hope that's what he's doing here. I noticed he wasn't exactly precise in the rhythm sections at A1 and more noticeably in St. ... more »

I think they just decided to not renew his contract. I enjoyed Emig more than RC candidly speaking but I also don't mind RC so much. I don't put much thought into the commentating as much as I do where the cameras are pointing.

I don't even think Reed has expectations to be on the podium this year. His ego is honestly the only reason he is out there and I'm not sure what his mindset it. Like everyone has said, come out and sign autographs, have a beer in the stands with some ... more »

Praying for you Justin. Funny you mention this Nate. I am at the ripe ole age of 34. When I was young 20s all I wanted to do was MX riding. Never wanted to get in to the trees. Guys I was riding with at the time were my age now and all they wanted to ... more »

I was wondering if it was just me noticing that. I have a feeling he has gone the route of McGrath. Enjoyed his post racing years having some beers and steaks and now wants to get back to a good riding condition. Nothing wrong with any of that. Next ... more »

I know exactly what you're talking about when he got tongue tied. It happens. Can't expect perfection from even a more seasoned professional announcer. It's easy to be critical of the commentators and even the broadcast. IMO, the broadcast has improved ... more »

Started new thread RC In The Booth 1/13/2020 7:49 AM

One unspoken thing RC does is react when he sees something. You can hear him go "ooohhhhh" when someone about goes ass over tea kettle or a rider almost slides out in a corner and then the broadcast just moves on. I miss what he is reacting too about ... more »

Not a bad point. I'm sure Mitch has placed the world on his shoulders. Watching Mitch's face over the last few years where his team has let the title slip at Vegas has been rough. I never like seeing one team dominate for years on end like Mitch's did ... more »

Not many people can DNF A1 and still win the championship. Stewart was a very special type of champion. He didn't win by small margins generally.

Added reply in a thread JS7 on Anahiem (not clickbait) 1/10/2020 8:22 AM

I don't think JS7 is animated enough for broadcast. His MO is more of a laid back conversational style rather than perpetually coming in with "for TV" comments. Very cool video. Hope he does more of them. Cool to have his commentary.

I'd rather have Webb unfiltered any day. His finger gun towards Roczen was funny. The comment about AC was accurate. These sorts of things have a way of coming back to bite you if you're not paying attention so ultimately Webb will pay the price if those ... more »

He had the option to run it to the top of the jump with a clutch assist so he didn't have to push the bike, then simply remount at the top of the jump. It's not difficult. I think he just panicked and didn't really give any thought to what he did. He's ... more »

So far this week I'm ranked 852/64441. Probably one of my better weeks. Finishing in the top 1,000 is pretty difficult. And some weeks the track just sucks for the way I play.
