Added reply in a thread What's the point with the 450 class? 2/18/2018 1:22 PM

the mph speed advantage of fourstrokes is a mirage. it's not about mph, it's about race craft, and while some will cite 2 strokes as being "slower", they're also more frightening. the "pinned" 250 2 stroke took the ultimate in skill imo. the racing was ... more »

Not sure if plastic or carbon coverage above the forearm and wrist area would do much in the case of Barcia, or Johnson in 90, but I'm sure someone's looking into it.

Pretty sure he couldn't fight back? Hello, the dude is injured.

Sad, just no other way to say it. Really sad.

The most awesome race EVER, that flew under all the experts' noses, with no acclaim, yet finally someone said it -- because it's the truth. #notevenupfordebate.

Added reply in a thread What did the King have to say about block passing? 2/10/2018 9:49 AM

Exactly. Line choices make MX/SX so very different from car racing. MX is a flow sport. Imo no connection with car racing, but more like fighter pilots in air combat. Terrestrially, it's more like surfing and/or boxing than "motorsports". Yes good post ... more »

It looks blazing fast, and it is. The thing is "mph" isn't the measurement of motocross -- it's the graceful control of violence. By that measurement, these guys were gnarlier than anyone else and deserve huge respect.

I think Emig is one of the best ever in the booth. He's a Supercross champion and hearing his take is genuine, it's as close to hanging out with a former top pro as many of us will ever get. I would hate to lose him. And nothing against Ralph at all ... more »

It's not too much to ask for, at this day and age, imo.

Started new thread Supercross Friday Practice 2/3/2018 4:46 AM

Watching GuyB's video from yesterday, I assume this is mostly a pre-race press event, or did they reinstate the Friday practice? I can't recall if they just moved Friday practice from the 1980's / 1990's to Saturday (day), or if they once practiced both ... more »

I ask because I have a pizza in the oven and I don't plan to spend all that caloric intake channel flipping until UFC ends. Would be a collossal failure of caloric allocation.

Yeah there's several riders that would bring the stadium to its feet if they got out front. Kenny would be one, also Barcia, but if Cooper somehow did it, it would be a more ominous feeling I think.

I mean, that's not what I said, but yes why not cheer someone on when they have as much potential as CW? Perhaps it was another thread but I've seen mostly complaining about his "attitude". Then again a lot of Vital members complain on riders for various, ... more »

I want more attitudes like his! Cooper Webb is the classic personality we've been MISSING imo. We've got more than enough cordiality in a sport that's tamer in many respects compared with days of yore., We need more Hannah's, Johnson's, Bradshaw's -- ... more »
