Sexton raced him well. Had Eli gotten around a lap or two earlier he might have won the race. The “blocking” probably won him the overall.

I think the bigger problem was the track was pretty one lined. It’s a beautiful track that looks awesome to race on, but passing was for sure at a premium there.

Just a heads up...

Racing in general means not letting your competitors pass you..

Track is fairly narrow in some spots and with how deep practice was, it made for some one lined sections.

He mentioned he wasn't sure if he would get the overall if Eli got by him, so he tried to hold him off as long as he could, and he also tried to make his bike as wide as possible cus he knew Eli was riding better than he and Dylan. But strangely enough, those 'moves' are all things you do when you race and try to win.

Sexton was "Blocking" like RC and Bubba "Blocked" everyone from winning all those races....here's to watching Sexton doing a lot more "Blocking" throughout his career!

Fake news.

Your right and Ferandis could have slowed in the last lap as well. WTF is wrong with these people.

Is this thread for real??

The above may be fact or fiction, I may be serious, I may be jesting. I am not sure, you have no chance.

Why DID you type SEXTON in all CAPS?

Yeah to prevent Tomac from stealing points from his teammates main title rival.

If you replaced Sexton with Webb, virtually everyone in this thread would be pitchforking Webb.

No… they would be gobbling Webbnuts going on about his racecraft and mental toughness.

I spent years, sacrificing everything so I can get to this point.
I rode countless laps, ran endless miles, and raged against mediocrity.
I carry the hopes and expectations of a multi-billion dollar company on my shoulders; the same company which pays me quite handsomely to ride a motorcycle for a living.
There is no question that my intention, my job, my very life is to win races.

But I'm going to pull over because somebody thinks the guy behind me deserves to get further up the track.

Hell yeah, Sexton blocked Tomac. He'd do it again, and Eli would call him a wussy if he didn't try.

Braaapin' aint easy.

Another example of needing at least 100 posts before you can start a thread….

The absolute stupidity of some posters on here is mind blowing. Is the op brain damaged? Lot of concussions? Fall under the ice for 20 minutes and got revived?

Good job.
Sadly, on Vital, stating the obvious is often required.

It’s true! The word in the pits is that Chase and his team are putting everything they have behind the DF/Yamaha MX title run.

How is it Fake News? Sexton actually said that he was riding a wide bike. That by definition is blocking.

That all being said Sexton did nothing wrong. He didn't have Eli's pace in the second race so it's his job to stay in front as long as possible as long as he is not creating a dangerous situation.

Well, ex-world champ' Romain Febvre complained after the Dutch MXGP that Coldenhoff spent the whole first moto blocking him.

So was this guy expecting a moto version of Sarcastaball or something? No, after you Eli, thanks...
