Added reply in a thread To Me, One Of The Most Remarkable Aspects Of Eli’S Style 7/7/2019 11:10 PM

With Mammoth happening this past week it reminds me of how incredible it was watching Tomac check out from the Supermini field the one year I raced the event. It was in '07 and it was when he would wear that all white TLD on American Suzuki. I remember ... more »

Yeah! Why doesn't he just do it? I mean it's only his ankles . Motocross riders are bred tougher than most. She just has absolutely no fucking idea how crazy it is to jump a motorcycle that far, and even when you land smoothly I'm sure its still a painful ... more »

I can only imagine my boots looked like that when I shattered my feet. It looks like he's doing well despite a big crash!

I did independent studies throughout high school as well, and looking back I'm not sure if I would have changed it. I was teased throughout elementary school and early middle school, but finally started to get in with the "cool kids" of my school in ... more »

I think this is an example of how gnarly distance jumping is. There has to be a weird level of staying mutual in the air without the bike wanting to endo or loop out. Axell is a technical and calculated jumper, so I think this just shows the difficulty ... more »

Swap, please do these videos with amateurs and current pros

Off topic, but its so wild how similar Yoder looks to Andrew Silverstein on a bike. Silverstein was a ripper in so-cal and ran 58 on a Honda with Fox ... more »
Added reply in a thread Who was the best minicycle rider of all time? 7/2/2019 8:41 PM

I think people look at Alessi's pro career and discredit how dominant he was as an amateur. To me he's the best of all-time, but I still rank Cianciarulo pretty close since there were a few years where he would have won 2-4 more titles than he did at ... more »

Added reply in a thread Tomac Managing The Title?? 7/2/2019 8:32 PM

Tomac is taking a page out of Dungey's book. He's able to back it down outdoors and still manage the title. Absolutely he's backing it down and taking good points rather than having heroic rides.

Added reply in a thread Classy Southwick Fans 7/1/2019 7:24 PM

I don't care what anyone says, you can hear fans on the side of the track when you're riding and I'm sure James heard that punk yelling the N word every lap. It's a shame that those guys aren't the only ones like that at the races. I think over time ... more »

Added reply in a thread Thoughts on CR22 Quote from Racer X 6/30/2019 4:45 PM

20 years from now I think we're going to look at Tomac as being a "Stanton" or a "Rick Johnson" of the sport. It's tough to consider these guys "great" while they're still racing with years left to prove themselves.

Added reply in a thread Does Roczen keep trying, or rest to get over it, 6/29/2019 7:40 PM

He's still in this title fight. Theoretically if something happens to Tomac next week and Ken decides to "sit it out" to rest, he's going to be kicking himself (Yeah Marv is there, but you know what I mean).

I had the sickest battles with Mat on 85s. His style always reminded me of Josh Grant, cool kid, good family, happy to see him do well!

In a moto here and there, sure, but I don't think AP will magically finish further than those 4 week-in-week-out. I understand I said I don't see him beating any of them this year, but I was basing that off the OP who asked if he can win Ironman, and ... more »

Added reply in a thread Plessinger this weekend. 6/27/2019 10:44 PM

Here comes the guy pumping out his chest when one of those riders has a tough race and crashes and AP beats them finishing 6th and he wants to scream to the world that he's right. To answer your question, what is the bet? I can see AP beating one or ... more »

Podium is more realistic. I don't see AP beating ET, Ken, Marvin, or Jason this year.

No idea who Paul Denis is since I'm pretty young, but Godspeed! Thoughts go out to his family and friends.

Added reply in a thread Lol why did they stop the ac interview? 6/22/2019 9:24 PM

They probably ask the question and have the rider answer prior to actually filming it for TV to avoid that, and they probably played the original clip asking the question. Who knows...
