Everyone's a critic... the guy nearly put on one of the greatest comebacks in the history of the sport and no one could stop talking about how much Dungey blew it this year. Moments after Tomac blowing it (possibly) he's a little emotional and doesn't want to talk and out come the pitch forks on Tomac...

Just out of curiosity, what would you expect to hear if he did talk?

Would you want to talk after a race like that? Probably not. Let's see what he has to say after Vegas.

I saw a couple short interviews, not sure what you were expecting.

If I was him I would have told everyone to piss off and went and poured a very stiff drink.

Chickeepoo caught (and interviewed him) twice. Once in the tunnel right after he pulled off, then again before the Podium interviews. He wasn't looking to happy, but DID speak to TV crews twice at least.

You guys know Dungey could DNF or crash and be back outside the top 10, and lose this thing. It ain't over yet!

Dungey said it after the race. One more to go! I think he knows what could happen.

I can only imagine how BobbyM would have reacted.... His on-line 'racecraft' is certainly high in sodium. whistling

Hey, at least he didn't throw his goggles. Right?

That would have been the end of the world. I bet the topics this week would have been changed from Marvin letting Dungey by to how big of a baby Tomac was because he chunked his goggles.

Probably not. It would have made both sides butthurt.

In the major sports in this country the stars of their sport have to suck it up and answer questions right after their games, but in this sport its okay to just ride off and blow off the media. Feld needs to take control of this and make the riders talk right after the race. This is why this sport continues to be "amateur" compared to major sports.

Don't know about that, at mxgp they get a microphone shoved in their face before they even get off the track. Many times it's incoherent ramblings as you'd expect from someone that's just finished 40mins intense cardio.

Maybe a 5 minute cool down then talk ala F1

I do like the 5 minutes to cool down and then talk like the F1 does.

If you don't crash once in a while, you're not going fast enough.

Because why? So you could see the disappointment and disgust in his face?? Any logical person knows exactly what he was feeling. No need to throw a camera in his face to get the full effect. He didn't podium, he doesn't need a stupid interview so we can all see him sob. Swear some of you must watch the real house bitches of who gives a fuck. Dramalaughing

You cant blame him for not wanting to interview. I mean shit im having physical pains from saturday and its monday now. Its hard to scroll through social media or vital. Cant imagine whats in tomacs head.

I understand your concern. He did however respond to reporter's questions at the end of the broadcast. He said that he screwed up and was really bummed. I was not surprised to hear him say this since I saw him screw up in the race. I am surprised that one would wonder what Tomac's comments would be after such an outcome. I didnt see him push reporters out of the way and run and hide if that is what you are thinking. He said what he had to say at the time. What questions did you need answered from him after the race?

|

Honestly, what were you expecting him to say? The dude was crushed and did not want to talk. Who cares? I don't want to watch some guy fight back tears just to say he didn't do well. Just let the guy return to his pits and decompress. Bad enough these reporters don't even let the racers get their helmets off before shoving a mic in their face after doing 20min plus 2. If the rider doesn't want to talk after a race, especially a race like that, just let him go.
