Reply to Chad Reed..132 Podiums ?? 2/27/2019 11:31 PM

As far as Rookie seasons go. Chads assignment was about as tough as it gets. Dude was up against the Ricky Carmichael at his prime coming off his best ever SX season. The guy who dethroned the king FFS. Reed actually won more races than him. The only ... more »

Personally the Golden Era for me was late 90s through to late 00s. Although 1997 was the first year I ever got to watch the races. So it's probably nostalgia. That's when I fell in love with the sport. Jeremy McGrath dominating aside from on his RM250. ... more »

Reply to Chad Reed..132 Podiums ?? 2/26/2019 5:58 PM

Unbelievable. 148 races in his first 10 seasons 119 podiums (80%). In those 10 seasons he had the likes of Ricky Carmichael, James Stewart, Ryan Villopoto, Ryan Dungey etc. aswell. Im glad he has kept racing even if hes destroying those percentages though. ... more »

Reply to Chad Reeds 3rd place. 2/24/2019 11:30 PM

You brought up his results. Which were better than 19 of his 21 opponents. How is that a hard comcept to grasp? Outside of Webb and Tomac, who exactly was better than Reed?

Reply to Chad Reeds 3rd place. 2/24/2019 7:37 PM

Which is the 3rd best results of anyone. He knew where he needed to finish to keep the podium and did what was required. Considering the bad start in Main 3 he did well to keep Roczen from taking the podium

Reply to Oldest to ever podium in 450 SX? 2/23/2019 9:56 PM

Larocco was 35 when he retired. He was the guy I thought might habe held it. Dowd was 40 when he lasy finished on the podium in MX. Not sure about SX though. Couldnt find that. Reed could possibly have set that record tonight.

He lead by 2 points over Roczen. He now leads by 6 points over Roczen. He increased his lead

Reply to Coop didn’t look good really all night 2/23/2019 7:35 PM

100%. On a bad night he still grabbed second and increased his points lead. Very impressive how he quickly gets his mind over shit and gets the job done.

This is how it's pronounced correctly in Australia.

Reply to Can Reed still be competitive in supercross? 2/23/2019 7:14 PM

Hes older today than he was in January and he's only getting better. He can race well into his 50s at this rate... Seriously though. So pumped to see him on the podium. Apparently he wasnt a top 5 threat or a podium threat. Yet here he is busting his ... more »

So Reed has 8 points. Savatgy and Roczen 11. Meaning Reed can lose to both but if they're both within 2 positions of him he has a lower overall. Reed could podium with: 1. Tomac 2. Webb. 3. Musquin 4/5. Savatgy/Roczen 6. Reed Although if Reed finished ... more »

Reply to Detroit SX - Night Show Bench Racing 2/23/2019 5:49 PM

So Reed just needs to finish within 2 positions of Savatgy and Roczen for a podium here. Another good start and there's no reason he couldn't

Reply to Detroit SX - Night Show Bench Racing 2/23/2019 5:19 PM

His huge balls helped him keep balance. Didnt crash or lose position. Unbelievable.

Reply to Can Reed still be competitive in supercross? 2/23/2019 5:05 PM

And he passed Baggett to get to second before Tomac destroyed everyone. Reed even had a crack at the big jumps. Nearly crashed late hitting it and amazingly didnt lose a position.

Reply to Forkner Quad 2/22/2019 3:13 PM

Deano made it look very easy on the 450. Hard to imagine all the top guys not doing that. Guys not willing to do it in 2 jumps will lose too much time. Not sure how many 250 guys have the skill and balls to hit it though. Forker could crush the field ... more »

Reply to Unpopular Opinion: Less riders on the track. 2/18/2019 5:59 PM

I could handle it dropping to 20 riders. But 12 riders? That's ridiculous. Why should any of the other riders bother showing up. There's 15 or so pros fighting for 12 spots.

Reply to Webb before he passed Marvin, Anyone see this? 2/18/2019 10:08 AM

Ever consider that knowing the result before you watched the race robbed you of the experience everyone else had? You knew he was making that pass. Everyone else was on the edge of their seat to see if he could catch him. If Kenny had anything left for ... more »
