I was riding at Baja Sunday, and was chugging around with Jello arms when a green flash went by.

Glad we didn’t actually hit, and I felt terrible for getting in his way. Can’t say I’ve had anyone close on me that fast before!

Of course, great local photog Chad Hetherington got a shot of the turn.

Wow dude. That's nuts. Glad no one got hurt. Just goes to show how fast these guys are and how quickly they react. Crazy.

Thought it was tomac for a minute lol

Thought these guys took Sunday’s off. You would think two mud motos and super heavy bike would tire them out.

I thought that was Tomac for a second!

It's impossible for a corporation or government to love you or care about you.

Faster guys need to be careful of the other guys on the track also. I give guys plenty of room while passing during practice, for my own health and to not scare the shit out of them. I found myself thinking "why does Tomac have Piller's front fender stickers" for a second. Haha

I usually only get passed by 2-3 local guys at these practice days, but can hold my own with the A pack..... I can only imagine how fast B or C riders come up for guys like him.

Hell, I was having sketchy moments with “B” riders in the A/B practice....he probably felt like he was passing kids in 65’s.

Was Maff alone or was the whole team there? Any other Canadians?

Only saw the 1 Kawi, and there was a slew a quick guys that weren’t familiar.... not sure if they’re Canadian though.

Mr. Cox! We had a nice little lap or two there that time out!

I’m the only one I’ve seen dumb enough to run the Star Wars lid. I broke the visor a few weeks ago and had to epoxy it back together! ?

Looks like he's working on replicating that Herlings berm jump clip from a few weeks ago.

Muffy is a class act and just an all around good dude.

Nobody ever told me, I found out for myself. You've got to believe in foolish miracles. It's not how you play the game, it's if you win or lose. You can choose. Don't confuse. Win or lose. It's up to you!

Helmets are met to be worn!! I felt pretty gun shy out there, with only a week back on the bike. Seemed like I was either trying to dodge other riders or looking behind trying to stay out of the way of Mauff/Roberts/you. You heading to the Brawl?

Umm, that's not Tomac and not only is he not leading the championship something drastically wrong would need to happen in order for him to win it.

We do the red plate and Jess Pettis is the one leading the series heading into the last round this weekend. Leading by 3 whole points so should be good.

Thanks man! And no, you were going good!

Now the kid on the CR 125 not hitting anything may have received a C-class gesture over the 140 from me....

Then ironically I pulled a C rider squirrel move on Maff ?

If I'm healthy enough to complain. I shouldn't be complaining.
