Is that bruise part of the knee injury, or a separate injury?

I'm guessing that Baggett's retirement is the thing that has most affected their results.

At a minimum, the thumbs up is good. It's a nice way to like somebody's contribution without having to post an unnecessary "cool".

Added reply in a thread Do pro motocross racers get sick more than other athletes? 1/22/2022 11:27 PM

Thinking about it a little more. It could be that motocross racers have nowhere to hide. If they are sick, and only feeling 90%, it will definitely show in their results. But in team sports, if you are sick and only feeling 90%, your teammates can pick ... more »

It seems like every week there is another guy who has been fighting an illness for the past week. I can't remember who it was that didn't eat or ride all week because of food poisoning. (I'm not even talking about COVID.) I think they said Cooper Webb ... more »

Added reply in a thread How will Chad Reed do if he does indeed race a supercross this year 1/20/2022 11:28 AM

When he last raced in 2020, he qualified through his heat race 10 out of 16 races. When he went through the LCQ he finished first 3 times, second twice and third once. And he generally finished 10th-15th in the main events. (He didn't miss a main.) Essentially, ... more »

What wasn't good? Engine? Suspension? Chassis? Turning? Braking? All of the above? Aren't these all things that the factory teams spend lots of money to tailor to the preferences of the rider? Is Ken Roczen's bike anything like the bike you rode?

So if it's a 20-year curse, then Honda for the win in 2024.

Added reply in a thread Does 2022 end the Carmichael Curse? 1/5/2022 10:34 AM

Didn't Carmichael win on a Honda in 2003? That means only 18 seasons have come and gone without a Honda title.

Does anybody have any experience racing a gas motorcycle against an electric? I would be a little concerned that the quiet electric bike could sneak up on me and I would run the risk of colliding with somebody I don't know is there.

I don't know. Guys like Alex Ray seem to be living the dream. They apparently make just enough money that they don't have to get real jobs. While I have to have a real job, race for fun a few times a year and never get paid to even offset expenses.

Yeah, after thinking a little deeper, you are right. 5-10% to catch Carmichael sounds about right. He needs 12 wins to pass Carmichael. He had 3 wins in 2021, 7 in 2020 and 6 in 2019. Obviously, the 2022 season will give us a lot more information about ... more »
