You don't need to be able to straighten your elbow to race Supercross, it seems. If Kenny makes it through this winter in one piece, I fully expect him to lay the same beating down at A1 that he did last year.

You know, the race where he got the holeshot and beat Dungey by 16 seconds, Musquin by 18 seconds and Tomac by 30 seconds...

Yeah he was the fastest guy, but only survived two and a half races trying to run that pace.

When will people understand that he actually didn't make a mistake at all when he crashed? He had been running that same line, along with everyone else, the entire race and previous races, but it just happened to kick him that time.

So you're driving to work on the same road every single day. A pot hole develops and blows your tire causing you to crash your car. Where was YOUR mistake?

The mistake in this scenario would be in driving the same road and not paying close attention because you never expected it to change. Just because you hit the same line in the same way every lap....that doesn't make you exempt from making a mistake when doing so. If your logic was correct I would've had a lot less broken bones!

It was previously established on Vital that the new Honda's top shock mount is 39mm lower causing all Honda riders world-wide to spontaneously eject. Or, maybe he slightly over-jumped and it bit him.

I thought I heard he didn't have any mobility in his wrist? Is this a permanent thing or just something that could get better with time? I have a buddy who works with VP Fuels and last I hear he had to get a tendon graft for that.

Your mistake was hitting the pothole.

I guess his crash at Monster Cup a year ago was the tracks fault, too?

Don't tempt me to bust out the proofw00t

I have tried to let this sleeping dog lie. But Honda Hop is a thing.


Mostly I am concerned with what happens the next time Roczen falls the same way, and in racing Supercross he will eventually. I'm not sure it's worth the risk, I don't think they can fix Humpty Dumpty twice.

Yea, driving my '96 Miata into a pothole would be my mistake. Just the same as if I pinned it into a fallen tree that's normally not covering the road or a minivan that unexpectedly slammed its brakes on I-5 to get a better look at the new Chick Fillet that just opened.

Haha....oh man! The user name , the ideology.......100% millennial !

It 100% could not be the drivers fault......lets blame the road , or someone else. Hell lets fucking protest that road.

And yes , Kenny's wreck was 100% the " tracks fault ". laughing Fuckin' A.....I feel so much better now that I can blame all the tracks I've wrecked at. Sleep better at night knowing I never made a mistake.....it's everything and everyone elses fault. LMFAO!

I never said it was the tracks fault. Just saying he was riding best he could. Not over his head. I guess you can call it a mistake on his part. I just don't.

As for my username. My last name is actually Grant, a Grant is free money.. has nothing to do with being a "millennial"

Also, Sorry for triggering you Jeffro. Maybe I'm a "millennial and you're a "snowflake" grin

Well I may be. But haha....you gotta admit....blaming the track with a username with free money in it kinda sounds " Millennial-ish " laughing Didn't set me off....it gave me a really good laugh in fact haha.

For what it's worth (not about the track) but roads... they've gotten so bad here in parts of Los Angeles that the city will reimburse you if they cause damage to your car.

I'd love to say they're all avoidable but we have some roads that they are absolutely unavoidable... you go left to avoid one and you're going straight into another one. If you live here you know which streets to avoid most times but anyone passing through could unknowingly be running into a mine field.

That said - 94 or his bike done fucked up on those over the bars.

If you go back and watch the video. He had just lapped Adam, who had politely moved aside giving plenty of room. But Kenny was traveling at a speed never seen before (feel free to review video). Kenny took the line (rut with the pothole) beside the one he had been taking , causing the buck.
