Sucks to see how brutal this sport is. Hopefully the 51 isn’t to beat up. Not to mention WP and Osborne not getting to start the season. I hate to see some heavy hitters out this soon in the season.

That's exactly what I thought when I saw JB laying there in obvious pain. Deep field but this sport can bite you at any time.

anyone have a video of it? didnt catch it live, just noticed he was “out” before the race was over

They showed a replay but it didn’t show the impact. He basically ejected feet first in a rhythm lane. He did limp off with some assistance after being down for a while. Hopefully nothing to major.

Imo the bikes have evolved to the point that they have become to fast and the suspension to good etc.
Its time to start doing something to slow it down

Power
Electronics
Suspension
Something or maybe a combination of things
The speeds have gotten faster, the jumps have gotten bigger, but the ground hasnt gotten any softer.

He had to step through the bars in the air while going through the rhythm section, kinda reminded me of Kenny's crash. I couldn't see the landing though

I was there didn't see the crash but it happened right in front of me. He didn't move for about 15 seconds then pointed towards his lower back/tail bone a few times. They kinda dragged him across the track and before the Rhyno took him away he was moving both of his legs. It was scary, would like to see footage of the crash. Hope he only misses a few races. He looked very messed up.

Maybe they could try to fit some more whoops and jumps in every inch of the track...what could possibly go wrong with no room for error for every inch of every track?

David bailey was paralyzed in the 80s. The sport has always been dangerous. You dont think a 500cc 2 stroke with 2 inches of suspension was dangerous back in the day?

Yep adding a jump and whoops in every inch of the track absolutely has not added any risks in any way.

Thank you. We hear the same shit every year.

You think hitting a big jump on a FI 4 stroke is more dangerous than a carbureted 2 stroke?

And it's not jumps and whoops covering every inch of the track either. Jessy Nelson was paralyzed outdoors in a turn. Brad Baker, a flat tracker, was paralyzed last year on a track with no jumps.

If you're not into it go race stock cars. Nice comfy roll cage to keep you safe and sound. Motorcycles are dangerous shit. It's not for everyone.

Personally, I think they have slowed things down by being more technical, etc. A few riders have mentioned how the lap times have been longer this season.

As far as Justin, let's see how this weekend plays out before we move him to the injured column with Mookie.

Justin is still close to the points lead.

Hopefully with this week off the bike he can heal up enough to be able to race and work through it. Depends how banged up he is, it looked ugly!
