A-Marts mechanic mixed his premix too rich.

Just saw him on TV as A-Mart fell back with the engine problem.

Reply to Predictions for Chad Reed 6/18/2016 11:07 AM

I think Reed will do better in the GPs than AMA, and not because I think the GPs are easier, but because he does better the more technical and rutted and rough a track is. The different track conditions in the GPs were something RV had a hard time adapting ... more »

I think top 5 is out of reach, but I would be surprised if he could not get a top 10.

This, exactly.

Reply to 22 nor 7 will ever win another main. 3/13/2016 3:34 PM

They do both have an uphill battle, but both of them still have a better chance than someone like Shorty or Brayton or Weimer ever had or will have. 22 and 7 are the kind of guys, just like K-Dub was in the last few years of his career, on the right ... more »

Reply to AF RM300 Electric start ? 3/12/2016 4:22 AM

Which was my whole point. You can already buy 250/300 two strokes in modern aluminum chassis, why cobble a KTM 250/300 engine into a Suzuki chassis when you can already buy one? If you are going to go to that trouble, make the engine you put into it ... more »

Reply to Trail/desert riding beneficial for motocross? 3/11/2016 3:19 PM

I've always done both, and I've always found moto helped me offroad and the offroad helped me in moto. More importantly, they are both a blast.

Reply to AF RM300 Electric start ? 3/11/2016 3:17 PM

If you want a 300 buy a KTM/Husky or a TM, if you want to go to the trouble of putting a two stroke in an aluminum frame get a KX or CR500.

7th and ahead of a ton of factory bikes. If he is not on James' bike next week (assuming he cant ride) then Suzuki is crazy.

Reply to Yellow number plate backgrounds 3/4/2016 7:05 PM

FIM and AMA Pro was black for 125 (now 250) white for 250 (now 450) and yellow was 500 class. Pro racing still goes by this, the old MX3 GP class used yellow backgrounds just like the AMA 500 class.

Reply to Stewart did nothing wrong. Wrong place at the wrong time 2/28/2016 6:11 AM

This right here^^^^. I saw him look over, then obviously started trying even harder to stay in front, not start looking for a place to let them by. What the rulebook says about the blue flag, and if James caused Musquin's rodeo ride is irrelevant. I'm ... more »

Reply to Stewart did nothing wrong. Wrong place at the wrong time 2/28/2016 5:53 AM

He even looked back when they were crossing the start straight and he had plenty of room and time to let them by. It looked like he even started pushing harder when he realized he was getting lapped. Whether he actually caused Musquin's problem or not ... more »

Reply to Stewart did nothing wrong. Wrong place at the wrong time 2/28/2016 5:36 AM

I dont care what the rule book says the blue flag means, racers all know what it means. A long time ago I had a race director say this in a riders meeting and this stuck with me because it is the true meaning of the blue flag "If you see the blue flag ... more »

Well, he needs to stay there, give Weege the SX booth.

Reply to Why do so many people bitch about Ralph Sheheen? 2/26/2016 1:49 PM

I would have no problem with Ralph if he did the job he is paid to do, which is play-by-play NOT be an analyst. What pisses me off is when he constantly has to add his opinion as to why something happened. He needs to say "Why do you think that happened ... more »

Reply to MXA says Hepler signs with Gas-Gas?! (enduro) 2/24/2016 5:11 PM

If he thinks there is less chance of a concussion racing off road, he needs to have a discussion with Jack Penton.

Reply to Seven Deuce Deuce Segment 2/14/2016 6:15 AM

How about he start making every main before he gets a 20 minute segment? He's a Seven Douche Douche and I can think of 15-20 other riders that should have gotten that segement before him,

You know, I understand getting preempted by college basketball, or some other sport, but a dog show? This shows you why SX is kidding itself if it things its in the "mainstream".
