I agree, the law of averages only applies to the "average". The odds are these guys have had a much higher degree of social distancing, less random contact and better hygiene than the "average". That still doesn't mean it won't happen, just that it's ... more »

This right here is the biggest risk for any of the championship contenders...

ROFL... Stupid and desperate? His Daytona ride was classic Tomac. Nothing stupid and desperate about it.

If he's ready, I bet he would... But it doesn't sound like he is ready to go. So I wouldn't expect to see him. That said, I hope that I am wrong.

If they aren't that's on them... I always went to Mammoth 2 weeks early to try to get used to the air. It makes a huge difference.

Well now we're talkin! This will take a lot of the grief of being stuck at home away, 2 races a week for the next 3+ weeks. Time to rejoice!!!

Johnny O was a superstar for sure... I love how he burst on to the scene.

Reply to How bad were your knees after riding, pre- knee replacement? 5/12/2020 3:55 PM

I'm 56... Still snuck in there above average.

Cairoli has it for sure... I was a good starter, but it was 40 years ago... It was just about feel (hard to quantify) and confidence. Don't underestimate the confidence factor... I could even get there on a bike that people said was just flat slow. Beat ... more »

They are basically right there with the 125... Crazy why they don't....

Reply to Did the meetings happen? 5/7/2020 7:48 AM

AZ is still a great choice, but Duechy is the hold up for sure. As of this moment (the data runs 1 day behind), only 20 people have died of COVID-19 under the age of 65 in Maricopa County. Of those, 70% had underlying conditions... And 80% of the 65 ... more »

The '81 'Zook was leaps and bounds ahead of the field. Motor was ok stock, but had gobs of potential in it. Dean at R&D made them rip. It cornered and went through the rough stuff like nothing before it... I still couldn't run with Drey Dircks, but

Reply to Has Covid affected your moto spending plans for 2020? 4/24/2020 11:06 AM

Absolutely... Cancelled a 2 week Euro vacation that included MXoN in Ernee France. A complete disaster for my moto plans in 2020.
