Pretty sure Mt Morris and Muddy Creek were both considered "hot weather" races. But yes, sounds brutal this weekend. Will be interesting to see who makes up the most positions in the final 10mins of the motos (and who fades around the same time)...

Positively, absolutely 110% obsessed with anything MOTO.

94 degrees and Humid???!!!

Welp might as well check The Wick off the list for next year. Remember Freestone??

I thought Highpoint was basically these same conditions? The off the bike interviews were hilarious to me. Everyone sounded so disoriented from riding so hard in the heat. Give them a damn second to collect themselves, interview lady.

Sounds like a good opportunity for Baggett

Muddy creek was surprisingly pleasant this year.

Mud 80's, low humidity, and a nice breeze all day

High Point was only in the low 80s I believe. It was definitely worse last year.

The brutal sand and high temperatures could make things interesting. I would think Baker boys would have the best advantage...

Definitely not. The temp hovered around 90 most of the day. It was really hot.

Are you kidding me? KR is going to somehow find Tomac speed?? This is going to be the Eli show all day, he beat KR when he won the title in '16. I think Barcia/MM have much better chance than KR does. I expect it to be a 1-1 day for ET3.......Tomac in sand is crazy fast.

Advantage in the humidity yeah...but does that equal them beating Tomac at arguably his best track..NO

Why is that? BB has had 5 opportunities thus far, the weather isn't the issue, speed is.

Only Nationals in the south get dumped with that reason. Hot/humid Nationals up north is okay.

All this talk about Eli melting in the heat. That was a long time ago. Here's the past month of weather in Cortez, take note of the last week:

There's a button on the top right to change from Celsius to Fahrenheit if the link initially shows Celsius. I'm Canadian, I'm sorry!

It would be cool too see Barcia get his first win in years. I think if anyone is gonna beat tomac it’s him

My sorry was tongue in cheek. We Canadians are sorry for everything you know! Nothing wrong with Bellingham though, I love that place. Great local breweries, good cycling community.

Yeah perhaps, I guess I can’t argue that. He was pretty close to Tomacs speed last weekend.

94°? Maybe that bodes well for Ken. I don’t see it happening this weekend, but if his recovery is not going backwards, I see him as the likely one to knock Eli off before the end of the season.

Could be pretty dangerous. RIP Josh.

Ever been to Florida this time of year? 60% of the field trains in that or worse 5 days a week.

Ummm on a bad year for eli in 16 when kenny killed it and eli was returning to form he demolished everyone at southwick.

Why does anyone all of a sudden think this will be a good track for anyone other than eli lol
