Reply to Should Lappers be black flagged? 1/24/2021 3:12 PM

All this, because Deano blatantly ignored the blue flags and held up Ken Roczen? And Chad Reed did it to Ryan Dungey, like, 4 years ago? Because these are literally the ONLY high profile lapping incidents I can think of. How about riders pay attention ... more »

But if we weren't emotional, would we really be "entertained"? If we didn't GAF about the sport or the riders, we wouldn't watch it, let alone talk shit on a motocross forum. You know?

I guess some people feel Pro Circuit and Star crap out magical whiz kids who've been training since preschool, and everyone else should just GTFO the track. That's one big thing I miss about Jim Holley on RDL, he would even pay attention to the B guys,

I know it's early, but Eli is starting to give me those "will he or won't he?" Baggett vibes.

Especially when the leaders lap into the top 5!

Reply to Should Lappers be black flagged? 1/24/2021 11:55 AM

Yeah, that would be the dumbest shit ever. You would literally have to reinvent the points paying system and everything. You're a top guy who tumbles and starts a lap down? Tough shit, no points for you! Womp womp.

Reply to Was Jett’s move stupid or a racing incident? 1/24/2021 11:24 AM

Jett gets more of a pass because he is a literal child, and he raced like one last night. It was an intentional, dirty move. He even honestly fessed up to it on the podium! Forkner is WAY more seasoned than Jett - it's what, his FIFTH pro season out ... more »

Shit happens. Factory riders will have bad nights - be it from a fall, bike issues, or simply lacking speed - and be lappers. Lappers will always exist. That's not the issue. The issue is knowing to GTFO the way when you're a lap down and the leaders ... more »

Just think of it as his nice little way of sparing your thread from the Dumbgeon.

Reply to Should Lappers be black flagged? 1/24/2021 10:06 AM

Quite a coincidence that the most notorious, horrible lapping incidents involve seasoned, talented veteran riders hogging up main racing lines, NOT bumbling clueless privateers. Any rider smart enough to seriously hold up Dungey/Roczen knows EXACTLY ... more »

We must remember that Bam Bam was pulling top 10s on a STOCK BLUE PIG for a hot minute. So that Gas Gas must feel like straddling a literal rocket.

Reply to Webb 1/24/2021 9:20 AM

He and Ferrandis share that attribute. They're gritty fighters, pure and simple. They line up to win races, not popularity contests.

Reply to Webb 1/24/2021 9:13 AM

Well, considering Joey Savagty got fuck all for literally "after you, madam"-ing Eli Tomac into a million bucks, I'd say whatever less than that is.

Reply to Oblivious Deano roadblocks Roczen, but at least he's sorry 1/24/2021 9:07 AM

It's no skin off your or my back, sure. But it sure does sting if you actually have something invested in this, like Ken does.

Reply to Oblivious Deano roadblocks Roczen, but at least he's sorry 1/24/2021 9:01 AM

Indy 2018, when he aggressively punted Broc Tickle out of second place, for one. Still haven't forgiven him for that. 95% of the time, Deano is a cool and low key rider, so unlike Bam Bam or Forkner, there's plausible deniability for these incidents. ... more »

What a non-issue. That's like boycotting a concert bc you learned the musicians didn't set up the gear onstage themselves. If a guy can ride, IDGAF how he transported the damned bike.

To OP, noticed you're in PA...If you're willing to drive a little you can find some better deals on dirt bikes/ATV's in West Virginia. At least in my experience (I live in No.Va.).
Reply to Justin Barcia Racing Monster Cup aboard a Privateer Honda 9/18/2017 12:17 PM

Ha yep. But I honestly don't think they would hire Barcia even if he had kept them on speed dial. He's degenerated into a bitter has-been who struggles to stay in the top 10 while pissing off as many other riders as possible. Why would a top team like ... more »

Reply to RC Interview on RacerX 9/18/2017 11:50 AM

From the Chad Reed interviews I've read/heard, it seems Chad still has Championship (or at least top 5) ambitions. Really, 2017 marked a pretty steep decline for him, because in '15/'16 he still looked pretty hot out there. So I can understand why he ... more »
