HI Mitch. You have worked with some of the greatest riders of all time. Including THE guy that owns that title. Who are some of the riders you didn't have an opportunity to work with that you wish you did?

Maybe he's more aggressive, maybe he's not. I don't think the incident with Stew is any indication. He wasn't diving in to make a pass. He didn't think Stew would be there. If his intent were to stuff Stew then I would agree with you. However, he was ... more »

Well Done toroP. Well done. Very worthy post.

I'm sorry to break this to you, but your "assumption" that none if this really matters doesn't matter either. and the universe was not created by your parents

Yep, saw that. There are a couple of tracks named with BB in mind too.

Malcom may have something to say about that.

Reply to Has anyone been knocked out the same way as Stew 1/13/2016 12:24 PM

I have been knocked out the same way. Wasn't going very fast and just slapped my head down when I rounded a corner that was very icy from having been watered between that last lap and the lap I was on. I knew I was KO'd when I gained clarity while on ... more »

I actually like Wheaties too. Always have. Even when Bruce, um Caitlyn Jenner was on the box.

I hear ya brimx153... But I was answering in the context of SX only. In MX, Dungey had him handled a couple of times but running out of fuel, having sprocket issues and also a bike that wouldn't start until the first lap was nearly complete will make ... more »

Reply to Peick Tyson's Punch-Out!! 1/11/2016 2:16 PM

I didn't think it was obvious based on the massive amount of posts claiming his ultimate toughness over the years. Seems that "they" don't get it. "They" being the folks that say those things. Regarding the "Highly Questionable" clip... Goes to show ... more »

I didn't mean to offend you. I agree, the keyboard warriors are the ones that created this image. My comments were directed at them, not him. You said he has more patience they you would have. Probably more than me too. Doesn't make it right. Overall, ... more »

Reply to Keefer Talks About "The Musquin Question" 1/11/2016 12:54 PM

It could have gone either way. When I heard Keefer ask that, I actually thought it was very thoughtful of him. He actually cared about something that wasn't the standard bike setup, new teammate, blah blah blah type of question. On the flip side, I see ... more »

Or maybe he was just saying 2 concussions that he can remember.

Reply to Peick Tyson's Punch-Out!! 1/11/2016 12:30 PM

Well done... Regarding his tough guy image... Big doesn't equal bad. He'd get destroyed by an actual true tough guy. AMA may sound like MMA, but it's not the same.

I would say that RV worked him over pretty good his last year on Suzuki and his first year on KTM. Before that though, he didn't simply steam roll RD.

Reply to Carmichael and Emig: Shameful Bias 1/11/2016 8:25 AM

Canard's move was pure racing. Was it rough? Yes. But rough is good if it isn't taken too far. Keep in mind, this is THE premier supercross series in the frickin universe. TC put a hard move on the reigning champ. Maybe to let him know that he is in ... more »

Reply to Was the fist fight good or bad for the sport? 1/10/2016 8:49 PM

Agreed. But that is another variable that isn't part of this scenario. I have met many people that think I'm into the X Games when I say I like motocross. Oh, and they normally say "X Games" with obvious disgust. I generally don't disclose that I'm a ... more »

Reply to Was the fist fight good or bad for the sport? 1/10/2016 5:08 PM

It all depends. I think it's bad because it will attract the DBag demographic and the legitimacy of the sport will diminish. It can also be seen as good because the same demographic will bring more dollars. The bottom line... Good: More dollars for the ... more »

Reply to Dungey took same line as Stewart 1/10/2016 5:01 PM

It was likely a "go get em" fist bump. Not a "good job" bump.
