Kinda hard to take someone out when your 20 seconds behind!!

If you look at the lap times, you can’t Really call Eli beast mode can you? Roczen still had the fastest lap of the race... he just fell off the pace midway and Eli kept clicking 1.11 and 1.12’s. I think Roczen needs to get a little stronger to hold him off. Baggett used to go beast mode when he would suddenly drop 3sec a lap below everyone else, that’s hard to do.

Barcia starts the race in front of Tomac at least 50% of the time

How about when he’s getting lapped?

Smallest floorspace of any stadium all year so id imagine starts will be crucial. Kenny has been solid at A1 over the years. Same venue over and over Eli should be able to easily find his comfort zone and be dialed in. Should be good.

well,the mindset of the lead contenders going into "part 2 season" of sx will be different."feld" said,at any time this virus possibly shuts down sx, points leader will be champ. so these racers are going to do their best to get a red plate asap. *and dont forget the mix of healed up potential winners to stir the results.a/c for example.

You guys are funny. Remember when Tomac cleaned out Baggett because Barcia was chasing him (not lapped)?

I think it will come down to who can handle the new format and many races the best. I think tomac will struggle more than Kenny and webb with so many races, pressure and so on.

Much as I dislike saying it...Cooper Webb has had this time to heal, and will be a serious threat. He also deals with pressure better than Tomac or Rozen historically speaking. I just wouldn't bet against the kid to take it all...no matter what I think about him.

It will not be BamBam.

If I go with tomac in fantasy picks he will blow it.

If I go with roczen in picks, tomac takes it.


No idea. There’s a lot of racing left.

I would love to see Eli or Kenny take it. I love watching both of them ride and think they both deserve it for different reasons. These two are a bit of a conundrum for me, as I like both of them and want to see each of them win races and titles.

KR and ET go down together and both DNF on Sunday (only mechanical, not hurt).
Barcia and Webb go 1-2 and we go into the last 6 races with 4 guys within 5 points of each other.
After that I don't care who wins.

What was the question again? How I want it to play out?

Good point. I wouldn't be surprised if he made the most points out of anyone in the remaining 7 rounds.
But he's 19 points out. That's a lot

Helped completely by Anderson who stalled and took himself, Wilson, and Friese out. Very fortunate

Exactly!! Seems like these guys have forgot Eli’s speed advantage over webb and the rest but sure they will see it in about six days from now!! He’s the only rider out there right now that comes thru the pack regardless of his start!!

Shit happens in racing, doesn’t change the fact that Tomac was likely close to 15 seconds down on Barcia and came back to finish within 5 seconds of him. You guys are making it out like Barcia has a realistic chance at this title lmao.

Somebody said he was getting lapped... Barcia deserves some respect. He is not on Tomacs level but he's had a damn solid season.

Shaking my head “likely close to 15 seconds down”. I love the Tomac fan club’s justifications. Barcia isn’t on his level. We all can agree, but shit does happen in racing. Like tomacs continued brain farts

Barcia has the least chance to win the championship of course but it’s still fun to present some fun facts to super fans.

If I were putting real money on the finish, I’d say Tomac, Webb, then Roczen. It wouldn’t surprise me if Webb catches them both, though. I think he’ll be the most consistent finisher in these last 7 races, but I think that Eli will win enough to keep his lead.

I’ve become more of a Barcia fan the last few years, but his little meltdown with Tomac pretty much showed that he’s focused on little shit more than on actually trying to win a title. That’s too bad because if his level of motivation to actually win a 450 title ever matched his level of talent, he’d easily be in the mix. But the window of opportunity is getting smaller.

Gonna be Tomac....Kenny gonna Kenny and hopefully he doesn't destroy another limb in the process. I dont think webb or Barcia realistically have a chance to win the title, however they will definitely influence the outcome. The first race or two are going to be super important to reestablish that pecking order and it's going to be really interesting if Barcia gets a win right off the bat. If that happens he is going to be overly confident and likely make a stupid move thinking he can run with tomac even when he's 2sec a lap slower. Hopefully he doesnt ruin anyone's season. Anyway, Tomac has had some great performances in SL so it really shouldn't surprise anyone to see him smoke the field and take his long overdue SX title. Then he'll use that momentum to dominate another MX series and ultimately reign supreme as the undisputed fastest man on the planet.

Go Roczen.

Tomac goes real fast in Salt Lake, barring big crash he’ll be tough to beat.

|

5/25/2020 6:03 PM

This first race is crucial for Webb . If Eli wins and extends that lead past this 31 to 33 if and that's if Webb finishes 2nd in front of KR I can't see Webb pulling back 33 points with 6 races left. This first race is where it has to start for Webb

|

5/25/2020 6:41 PM

I think it's pretty interesting listening to this commentary from various sources saying it's going to be a sprint, you've got to set the tone, it's good for Kenny etc...

It's still 7 races. That's a shit load of racing, in a very short time. It's going to favour the strong IMO. For years we hear the series starts after Daytona... well this is after Daytona.

Very likely one of the top 3 has a dnf for multiple raves. Likely it's Tomac with how stupid and desperate he was riding in the last few races.

ROFL... Stupid and desperate? His Daytona ride was classic Tomac. Nothing stupid and desperate about it.
