I would really like to see Roczen take the title on the west and Barcia on the east. If Roczen rides like he did at the end of the season I think he will be very hard to beat. And didn't Barcia ride half the races last year with a broken hand/wrist and ... more »

This could be one of the best years in so long with no less than 5 people who all have a legitimate chance at the title. I really hope it isn't decided by injuries during the season or worse before the season. I sure hope trey gets well soon, one of ... more »

the last lap to have 2-3 guys within a few seconds of each other, with the attitude of wanting the win not just the podium finish. that is just plain exciting no matter who gets the win!

The title of this post says it all. Thoughts and prayers for successful recovery. No matter how conservative we ride there are always changing conditions and possible accidents.

Reply to Why would Roger put Roczen and Musquin on the West coast SX? 11/28/2011 6:35 PM

Close to home base, I would think that 2 riders doesn't double but more like quadruple chances of title as riders can help one another, Less expensive, A few big bike rides in the east races?

I believe Roger makes Ryan a better rider. I think Ryan has the respect to listen, learn, and adjust from Roger's analysis. I don't think Mike has the same relationship.

I don't remember which race, possibly Datona, but it was the first time I ever saw someone wheelie through the whoops, obviously many, many years ago
