Shit is getting real now.

...with a little help from Factory Kawasaki too (again).

I’m starting to like Eli more. Not as flashy as my last hero, JS7, but he keeps it interesting.

Saw him race SX once, it was beautiful.

Eli will most likely crush him at Millville
Makes things more interesting now. Cool

I'm thinking this is where Marv gets on a roll like he did last year.

I honestly think Tomac will crumble under the pressure of trying to get the points lead back in a championship he likely thought was all his.

This is where the two fastest guys put their heads down, the mechanics triple check everything, the managers eat rolaids constantly, the fan boys bitch endlessly...and we get to see the best racing. Ain't it great?

Eli seems to thrive playing catch up, might have been better for Marv to be close but chasing.

Marv smells blood in the water now. And fame and money. He’s going to go all out. Might be fun to watch.

He doesn't even have the speed to run away from a Roczen running at 80% and Barcia.

Yeah it will be more rewarding when he pulls away in the points again.

Marv has always been the guy motivated by fame, status, money, and flashy appearances - so this makes sense.

If I remember correctly, Kenny and JB had all moto to run him down today...

Tomac and/or Anderson for 2020.....

Basically even down the stretch, all that momentum Eli gained early is gone. Marvin can win this title, he's very strong at the remaining tracks.

When's he ever pulled away in points in a 450 championship? Tomac will right the ship. He lost a whole moto and the points are still about even.

He wont crymble under the pressure IMO. look at all the motos and races he won in a row to start this outdoor season, you dont think he had pressure doing that? If his bike wouldnt have broke in this first moto, he would still have a 22 point lead.

All part of the game here, wouldn't be the first championship lost to a mechanical.

You owe me for the glass of tequila I just spit out!

Classic!

I ripped a start from Egypt and I was happy about that.

At least his frame didn't break.

7/7/2018 4:41 PM

Can’t say he handed Marv the red plate. Not like he tossed it away with a crash. It was a mechanical issue so nothing ET3 could do about that

As far as the tracks remaining:

2017 Results:
Millville: Musquin 1-1, Tomac 2-5
Washougal: Musquin 1-1, Tomac 2-2
Unadilla: Musquin 1-1, Tomac 10-5
Budds Creek: Musquin 2-4, Tomac 7-1
Ironman: Musquin 2-2, Tomac 5-6

Then again last year doesn’t matter. But Marvin is historically better on the second half tracks.

For fame and money, motocross is where it’s at, baby. I think I saw Kdub and RC hangin’ at the Cannes Film Festival.

I meant Tomac

who won the championship last year?

|

7/7/2018 4:59 PM

I gotta admit I’ll be rooting for Mathildes husband but the beast Tomac impressed me today pushing that dead Kow with a locked up rear end. So surprised he didn’t drop it where it stopped and walk away. The strength of these the top few guys is amazing.

You sure about that ? He put Tomac in the dirt for 100K bonus and a supercross win just a few months back. Now he’s got the red plate and looking at a championship and huge bonus.
