He's only 43 points behind the guy that he beat by 81 points last season.

Totally possible to make up that deficit and anyone who's watched supercross has seen people come back from 40 plus points and win the title.

Who has done it from 40 + points?

He certainly could but he has a few problems standing in his way.

1:Anderson, main threat from Bakers Factory where the last 9? titles have come from.
2:Roczen, even if it takes a while he showed he will be back, maybe not where he was but enough to knock off a win or three.
3.Barcia, may have had an off night but if he wants to have a career to support his new wife he has to deliver. If he drops back into Barcia of the last few years it's over.
4.Marvin, if he recovers he's still a threat for a win streak.
5. Seely, he's won before and should have last night.
6 Eli Tomac, I don't think he can have a 14 race streak with no Tomacs.

If Anderson doesn't have any major bobbles he's going to be tough to beat. I just don't see that anyone will be able to dominate enough to make up 50 points.

I agree it's highly unlikely that he can get back in this thing but the only thing working for him is that the rest of the competition is just as prone or even more than he is to mistakes. I personally don't see Anderson, Barcia or Roczen going the rest of the season without any big mistakes or drama but as you said Eli probably won't be able to either.

Last year he had to catch Dungey. Dungey is gone. It's very possible that he takes this championship IMO.

Monster.... Kawasaki.... Tomac....

Making sense yet?

As much as I LOVE shitting on Ralph for the craptastic play-by-play guy that he is, it wouldnt matter if it's Ralph or anyone else in his seat. He's being told what to say because of who pays the bills.

We get live races on TV. You knew there'd be strings attached. Ralph is just Pinocchio in this case.

Tomac is now 43 points down on Anderson. He beat Anderson by more that 80 points last season.
There are 14 races to go.
Give Anderson one bad night, one tenth, and tomac is right there if he goes on like he did last year

That long list is actually in tomacs favor. If there were no good guys apart from him and Anderson, it would be pretty hard to make up the points because Anderson would finish 2nd every race.
Now there are 5 or more guys capable to get in between ET and JA anytime

True but there's also more people who can and I think will take wins away from Tomac. I wouldn't be surprised to see Tomac have the most wins but I don't see it being 9 like last year.

True.
Tomac may not go on a run. And that's good news for the others.

That's a good way to sum it up.

Its bad news because tomac is the best guy in fhe field hands down by far. He will keep winning. Maybe not the title but races.

Yep. I'm just saying IF he goes on and wins 9 races this season like he did last year, then he still needs people in between him and Anderson
Back when Reed and RC were dominating the field, 43 points would have been impossible to make up

I said something to you the other day , and I was wrong. On this point , you are completely right. And I couldn't agree more.

One thing I have noticed from Ralph over the years , is he picks a couple things to say , and just sticks with it. Like things don't change race to race , or year to year. I like Ralph , but damn he can get on my nerves.

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.

That's true.

If he wins 8 more races and has no really bad weekends he will be more than likely be champion. If he wins 8 more but has off weekends like last year it will end like last year.

yep heaps rather Ralph say 'well Eli has won tonight but it's of no use he's way behind and the points will never get interesting.. but tune in next week'

As Matthes put it perfectly in the A2 review wrapup podcast talking to Weege about this very subject, "Nothing is impossible but im gonna go with the last 40 years of history on my side" he was referring to the probability of a rider making up a points gap of this magnitude.

I don't really care what they talk about but I really wish Ralph wouldn't yell his sentences at random times throught the night.

Tomac did pretty good for not riding hardly at all in 2 weeks. & right off an injury. He also knew he didnt need the 3rd moto win to win the night.

Why not? All the same guys were there last year except Kenny. He clearly is not the same Kenny as before the injury at the moment. Plus Tomac got his first win a round earlier this year than last.

#whosnext...might humble another rider. Jason Anderson and Justin Barcia are two riders that are riding without consequence. They are the only ones I see that are willing to push over that edge.

If Roczen has the right people in his camp they are telling him to take the Dungey approach this year...A2 was, understandably, a mental nightmare. From here on out he should be consistent and stick around the podium - top 5.

Tomac absolutely has to get out there and dominate each and every race. I don't see him keeping it together consistently.

Tomac can also have bad races, remember? He seems to be a win or 7th kind of guy.

Anderson seems to have it this year..

Tomac and/or Anderson for 2020.....

So far I agree about Barcia and Anderson. Nothing wrong with Kenny applying the Dungey approach for a bit. If Dunge can miss 5 races in a row in the middle of the season and still clamp down 3rd (just shy of 2nd) overall for the year then all may not be lost. Championship for Tomac may not be probable... but it ain't impossible either.

As of right now, I have Roczen winning the championship. I think his caution will force the Dungey approach.

No matter what we are in for something interesting...even if Anderson rips off a ton of wins...it's something different than last year. If somehow Barcia is able to string together some wins and take the championship I'll be pumped as well.

I just hope we don't lose anymore riders to injury!
