It's great to watch though. Especially Zacho, bc you know he'll bring it every race. Seeing him in 10th or whatever but doing the same time as the leader is incredible. His riding is aggressive and intense, and the goggle-throwing coolant-leaking shenanigans

Reply to Difference between dungey and tomac 8/13/2017 8:35 AM

That Dungey was able to stay top 3 AND mostly avoid injury may be "boring" for spectators. But what incredible skill and finesse that sort of riding requires. He had both the physical and mental games covered. I was always a fan, but I can appreciate ... more »

Right?! Incredible riding. I think he for sure can be top 10. Really impressive to watch, and in terrible conditions to boot.

+1. Have a feeling something physical's going on beyond the "head case!#@!!" theory the resident psychics love to throw around. He seems kicked down a notch all around, like he's nursing something.

This entire thread is a head case

Reply to Tomac truly is a head case! 8/12/2017 1:24 PM

If anything (and not to suggest that Tomac was in any way unsympathetic), this is a good taste of the hysteria crap Dungey had to put up with last SX season...

I hope BOTH of them are joking

If we're talking "guilty" pleasures, then I will put it right out there that I am 100% in favor of "girly" drinks. Amaretto Sours are f'ing delicious, also love Black Russians and Cherry Bombs. Used to be big into Red Bull/vodkas, but those tend to correlate

Lol...but at least they wouldn't be doing it during the actual RACING then...that shit drives me crazy

Reply to Rule change? 7/30/2017 1:16 PM

Problem is everything in MX/SX is so case-by-case, and rules are really spottily applied to begin with. If the officials themselves don't know what to do, you can bet your ass the riders don't either. If JMart had been aware there would be a clear, cut-and-dry ... more »

Lol yeah, everyone was way too hard on him for that I think

+4 on being more of a JS17 fan, cats are good people!
Reply to Does Savatgy like cats? 7/30/2017 8:25 AM

Haha, I thought that was sweet of him. And I've never thought of Savatgy as a "sweet" guy. He said it was his mom's friend, IIRC?

Reply to If you have kids, teach them financial responsibility 7/29/2017 1:04 PM

The main problem is as the thread title states. Most people are either too uneducated or just plain lazy to even weigh out their options in the first place. Renting VS owning, sound investments VS depreciating ones, etc. So they routinely get screwed,

Glad he's OK, from what they say, the crash looked really awful.

Reply to How_Dean 7/25/2017 8:43 AM

LOL. My kneejerk reaction is to wince at the cheesiness. But if it works, more power to him. And it's always smart to cultivate money on the side while you still have the name recognition to do it.

Reply to Rider changes for 2018 Teams? 7/25/2017 7:32 AM

Tickle is an awesome choice. He's got heaps of potential and talent, great fitness, and can battle with the best when he's "on." His main issue seems to be confidence, and I truly believe if that's worked on, and he avoids injury, he could be solid top ... more »

+1. She's great...perfect blend of insightful and cute/fun. Annoys me far less than GL and Weege can sometimes too.

Reply to Jason Weigandt 7/23/2017 8:45 AM

Yeah, that was...awkward. I wasn't sure if it was intentional or one of those things where his brain meant to go in one direction but his mouth kept blabbing and went on an entirely different, weirder course.

Kind of reminded me of High Point ... more »
Reply to Stewart Family Compound | Snap-on Great Garages 7/22/2017 10:58 AM

Two thoughts... 1. No mention of JS7, to the point where it was almost uncomfortable. But I think this was intentional, as the intrigue that's built around his disappearing act would almost certainly overshadow the "point" of this video, which is to ... more »
