I am a Dungey fan, but realistically Eli has him covered on all fronts. He is just flat out faster right now. Short of a crash, which I absolutely hope does NOT happen, Tomac will take a well deserved title home.

Yes he has to.. but does anyone at this point think dungey can make up an extra half a second or second?

He could win or he could make it way harder for Eli to pass him (get dirty)

Other than that I'd say his title hopes are all but gone.

He can hope that Tomac's mechanic puts on the broken front master cylinder.

Reminds me when RC took down MC.

What answer are you looking for?

He has to win.

Finding .5 seconds a lap isn't be easy at their pace.

He needs everything to click for him, Eli is in a zone.

I want and expect him to win this, however smart money is on Eli.

He will do what he always does.....he will keep coming and Eli will need to beat him. It would not be the first time or first rider he has cracked with his consistency. Not saying it is going to happen, but you know he will be there being the "diesel".

May the best rider win!

He needs to start praying and doing three hail mary's a day that Eli has a mechanical or a crash late in the race...otherwise, I think Eli is winning this one (and I really really really want Dungey to win it.)

Yes!! Ride faster. Don't crash.

And there goes Jeffro. One of God's own prototypes. A super high-powered mutant of some kind never even considered for mass production. Too weird to live, and too rare to die.

It's difficult. It would appear that Tomac has him comfortably covered on speed. All Dungey can do is just put himself in position to win and hope that Eli either has an off night or has a crash/mechanical. He just has to keep as much pressure on as possible. If he can some how take points off Eli this weekend and make it winner takes all in Vegas then the form book kind of goes out the window in that kind of pressure situation. That's what he has to aim for

It has to be in his head that even a good start wont protect him.
He also has to be kicking himself for all his come from behind rides where he settled for second.

Dungey needs to get the holeshot and have Tomac buried in the back pf the pack.

He needs to get a good start and ride at a fast speed the entire 20 minutes not back off and relax once he gets the lead. But really Tomac is on fire right now. Really hard to beat a guy who has everything clicking.

I am sure Ryan Dungey is riding as fast and as hard as he can

He simply needs to bring it, that's all.

If he gets his points back this week, he can win the title, because he rides Vegas very well.

But that's why they run the races.

Keep doing what he does. Keep the pressure on Eli. I mean if someone can ride at the level Eli has for the last ten weeks, they deserve to win the championship. The odds of any rider doing that are slim. See: Roczen this year, Tomac 15 MX, etc.

Getting tired of people implying Dungey isn't deserving of this title or that Tomac deserves it more.

I honestly can't think of any riders Dungey has cracked? Not trying to be an ass either.

If the AMA decided to crown Eli on Saturday after that main I'd say fuck it, the last thing I'm gonna do is tell Eli he didn't deserve it.

For Dungey to win this title, he has to beat Tomac strait up the next two races. If he dosent do that he has to hope Tomac throws it away or has a bike issue. He did crash in Seattle and still made it back to second. I don't see much hope for RD, but you never know!
