Those 2 jumps were sic to watch live! Coolest jumps on the track.
Also Mookie was tripling out of one straight in the main that no one else attempted last night, that kid has been riding a lot.

I could not figure out why no one was tripling out of that second section, especially 450s. Obviously it's hard to tell from the TV, or even the stands but it looked pretty basic. That's the kind of stuff I'd like to hear riders talk about in post race interviews.

Sounds like the triple out must have the fast line?

The nice thing about them is the riders with balls can let her rip, unlike having to hit a specific distance landing ramp.

The one before the finish was awesome.

The one on the second straight looked like someone was going to go over the bars because of the steep transition.

I think the soft dirt/ruts/transition made it tough to get a good pop to triple out of that section.

Mookie had to seat bounce it to make it. Going that fast, seat bouncing.....made me cringe but he made it look easy

Those jumps were awesome! Anderson looked like he wasn't really launching them.

As for the triple, I'm pretty sure I saw Brayton do it in his heat race.

That WAS cool! I liked how the racers were throwing in some full-thottled body english setting up for the next corner.

No!....didn't you hear?...a Vital member said Mookie has been on the couch for the last 7 months.ermm

Plessengers line through the rhythm down the front start straight was impressive and the only one I saw do it all night. In person you could see him make up ground on everyone.

Anderson's launch where he nearly looped out was amazing. Can someone make it a gif?

I agree, single to flat is one of the safer ways to send it. I bet the pictures will really show how big they were going, looked huge!

Oldenburg was hitting that line as well. Damn cool. We were planted right in front of that section.

I agree... I didn't see any other rider pull that one out, other than him. Great wheelie tap flow through that section.

You can't see that they are jumping very high when they constantly use that damned fly cam to follow the racers. It's terrible
