Anyone else think it was kind of weird at the press conference? Herlings said the track was amazing and had so many lines. Then I think it was Wedge said something about how everyone else always says the tracks are one lined. Then Musquin came in and said he never thought the tracks were one lined through out the year.

Luckily Baggett stuck to his guns and said he still feels some tracks were one lined. Seems like I remember Musquin saying the track was one lined and hard to pass on just last week at Budds.

Great question, I'm glad you stuck that wheel in there haha. I feel like when you're going 2-3 seconds a lap faster than everyone, making lines work is pretty easy, no matter how good the preferred race line is.

Right on, sorry about that. I was hoping someone would ask that as I was listening to Herlings raving about the track conditions.

I think that's why he was going so freaking fast. Not used to that kind of traction or deep ruts to push it. Plus it was prob the least rough track of the year. Freaking highway to him. He was like a kid in candy land on that chocolate cake! Just sending it

It doesn't mean it wasn't without "moments." I saw a couple times where he was out of shape in a big way.

Just from my observation, but...he seemed to ride a lot lower in the powerband. His bike was also equipped with a pipe that lends itself to more low end, and it looked like he was on the gas harder, but without the violent hit.

Hmmmm where have we seen that before? I vaguely remember another guy from across the pond that rode his bike like that?

So....exactly the opposite as Barcia? Imagine that.

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.

I'm sure I knew at the time but I was going off memory a day later. Cut me some slack. 25 burpies.

He is probably running the new aqua colored powerband.

The message posted above is most likely my opinion and shouldn't be taken as fact....

I didn't notice that he said he couldn't pass, but I may have missed it because I was focused on him trying to pick his nose without anyone noticing.

Baggett is so impressive at finding fast lines nobody else takes, if he says a track is "One Lined" then I would tend to believe that.

didnt he say he couldnt make the big jumps as most of the "slower" riders didnt jump it he didnt want to jump on any of them ?? at least thats what i remember of it when he talked about being at the back

the funniest thing about this particular signature is that by the time you realise it doesn't say anything it's to late to stop reading it

I thought he said he couldn't make the larger jumps when coming through the guys at the back, losing a lot of time to the leaders.

Yeah even on 250's he would not rev the bike at all. Never even sounded like a 250f
