God I hope not.......would hate to have the championship be decided by a shit show mudder. We have had what one? two? races at this place that hasn't been a full mudder. I'm prab in the minority but the mud races don't do anything for me and severely take away from what would be a great track.

Was there in 2014. Not good as a racer or spectator. it will be what it is.

Well, may as well pre-emptively cancel the round and call it then. Champs are set anyway. Then we can yap incessantly about what could have been.

I’m right there with you man. I aways feel a little cheated when Mother Nature doesn’t cooperate. It’s like being really excited to watch an NBA game then 5 minutes before tip off they announce that tonight’s game will be played with the players shoe laces tied together... Yea it’s funny to watch them clown around for a few minutes but not exactly what you came to see...

Oh well, as they say, it is what it is...

X2. It's fun for about two minutes

I'm not even an Eli guy but to lose it over weather related BS would be criminal.

Come on Ma Nature this is for the 450 strap! Ease up please.

You gotta know they are going to use every trick in the book as far as waterproofing the bikes.
That would be a real bummer, a Reed at Daytona thing happening again.

It's easy to say, 3 just needs to finish both motos, let MM go.
But, we've all seen how it sometimes works out for Tomac when he tries to dial it back.
Wet or dry, whatever, that's what makes it good, that's the outdoors.

The narrow points spread, the iffy weather, past rider performance in certain situations, imo, this title is up for grabs.

It was so cool walking into that place for the first National seeing how great everything looked. By the end of the day, the entire grounds was destroyed. I felt bad for the owners.

X3. Mud races are boring after a few minutes. Unadilla was a snoozer save for a few moments.

Off topic, but do you live here in the states? For some reason I thought you were from Europe.

I agree it was boring to watch on TV apart from the first 25 metres.

I’ve got a bad feeling about Eli making it out of this thing unscathed... man that’d be a major bummer if the mud were the deciding factor when I reflect on the season and can only remember him winning constantly.
