This thread sure when red-necky and asshole-y quickly. All you folks lining up to speak truth to race about why black folks be stealing bikes and getting free housing and using the system should come wander around the Midwest a bit. We have plenty of ... more »

Look up there ^. See that? That's a page and half of examples of dudes doing dumb shit and losing races. The point is that PEOPLE sometimes do dumb shit and lose races. Some of those PEOPLE are men, some are women. You framed this as a gender issue as ... more »

Added reply in a thread Dungey is +25 Points Already 2/22/2015 12:57 PM

Here's the thing though: In the past, even when he was in a position where he needed to push it, he doesn't have it in him to chase people down as well as the other top-tier riders. That's not a dis, it's just how he rides. It's serving him extremely ... more »

I'm not a Dungey fan or a Reed fan, just calling it like I see it. You and I must have watched different races because I saw Dungey trying like hell to catch Chad and he just couldn't quite make it. Chad is one of the few riders who can feel that push ... more »

I expected way more whining from Chad - he owned his actions and has a very valid point about the black flag. Do we really want one person to make very quick decisions about tossing people from a race for something like this? Up to now, officials let ... more »

It seems that the Good Lord must have taken his eye off of Trey for a crucial moment or two in that race. Damn shame too, cuz the Lord usually does a bang up job keeping him safe out there. For sure.

Kidding aside, Trey gambled and lost jumping ... more »

How about folks start a thread about all the stream issues and leave this thread clean for race discussion? Just a thought.

Chad's always been a head-case when it comes to racing. He always talks about "feeling it" when he's winning, and he talks about not feeling it when he's riding around as a back-marker. We've all raced people like this (or maybe are a case like this ... more »

Not that I think anyone posting in an Alessi thread is actually interested in numbers and data, but here's a site that gives a little basis for what we're talking about: http://www.mrn.com/Race-Series/AMA-Supercross/Drivers/Driver-Bio.aspx?driverID=1726&SubSeriesID=20&q=Mike+Alessi|Supercross

I asked the same question awhile back and got the same kind of answers. I don't think anyone is keeping data on positions lost. They do keep lap charts though. Someone with more time and interest could probably do some work to figure it out from that ... more »

Added reply in a thread A real statement win for RV last night 3/9/2014 6:43 PM

RV looks so much more comfortable on tracks that have an outdoor feel to them and that was crystal clear after watching the Daytona race. He owned that track. Carmichael was the same way. Not to say that either of them suck at more traditional, technical ... more »

James is dangerous when he's that chill. I think this is going to be a very interesting championship race. RV is solid but he's human and James has matured a ton. Sooooooo happy to see James do well.

Ricky looks super-pissed trying to talk about everything except what he really wants to talk about.

Add me to the list of people who are getting "won over" by the new Chad. I've never been a fan due to his whiny attitude and being kind of a head case about winning only when the stars are lined up and he has a warm fuzzy. Even my wife who doesn't follow ... more »

Something I was thinking about this situation. Not always, but a lot of times, the type of people attracted to this crazy sport of ours are the same type of people who aren't going to take shit from people in non-track situations. I'm in that number ... more »

Added reply in a thread Mike Alessi 7/27/2013 6:59 PM

I think much of the hate stems from the perception that the Alessi's treat others like crap. Based on how both JA and TA treated Matthes and DC, there is some truth to those perceptions. Unfortunately, because they've been so tight for so long, MA is ... more »

I've never been a Mikey fan but after all the crap that went down through no apparent fault of his own, I was happy to see him do well. It will be interesting to see how losing his father's influence will affect his riding. I have a feeling he'll really
