Will they make the main and how about individual finishes for each rider?

|

I think they'll make the main. Probably finish last to near last in the main.

I think it's safe to say that Sipes will be the most impressive and finish highest out of the 3. I think he can sneak into the top 10-12 in his class.

That is, of course, if they even race in the main if they do qualify.

What is Sipes riding?

I'm so pumped to see kdub and Travis race again. I see Travis is running and doing 30 minute motos to get in shape.

Windham said on his Pulp interview the if they make the main, he IS NOT racing it. Because that would mean 3 motos in one day (assuming they have to race and win the B Main to get in).

Seems like they are there to put in a good, respectable effort (but not too good), and raise money and awareness.

It's really hard to estimate how Travis and Windham will do.
They can probably turn fast laps but will they even last enough to finish decently in the 20+2 saturday motos?
If one of them can get a decent result on saturday and sipes finishes where he should, then they could qualify. Especially because some Euro teams aren't going (Slovenia, Latvia, etc)

They will have the longest autograph lines

TOP 5!!! TPR for the win!

|

9/7/2018 7:15 AM

Top ten in the B Final if everything goes their way.

|

9/7/2018 7:22 AM

Is there a full list of teams and riders entered? How many teams make it directly into the A Main from qualifying?

We can have the ultimate bench-race scenario and try to figure out where they will finish based off the list tongue

Found this from last years qualifying results. Looks like 19 teams directly in with the 20th being B Main winners.

Can they race into being top 19th fastest? Someone said qualifiers are only 20+2 which helps them. If it comes down to the B Main I think they throw the anchor and just have a good time on the track...

Well, Slovania won't be there so I'd say they make the top 19

I'm surprised that Travis can still run. Seriously. I can't run anymore without limping for the next 3 days, and I have only had one knee injury and surgery.

Denmark neither, and Portugal I believe
Switzerland isn't 100% sure yet

Kevin said the other day on the Pulp show that he won't even try for the main if he qualifies. I think he'll surprise himself.

Exactly what I was thinking. He needs to knock the dust off of his rowing machine and save those knees as much as possible for the motos.

Do you mean what team is going to get second?

I think they can make it through the B final, and if they qualify for the show, I'd say 16th-20th.

I don't see Pastrana finishing any of the motos without a few crashes, Windham surely isn't in shape enough to go 30+2 anymore, and Sipes will be extremely underpowered vs 20 450s.

Walt kicked ass on those drawing's! Thanks Walt!! I know you post here too....so hopefully you see this.

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.

Are those going to be made into T-shirts? I think they would sell quite a few of them.

Could have 5 T-shirts or 4 T-shirts with the riders in the front and the whole team on the back.

I don't care.. even if he's racing folks well below his skill level, the FIM displacement rules are gonna ruin his chances.

In qualification they only take two results. In previous years to make it to A-final you only need less than 30 placing score combined from two riders. So if Sipes can make it around 12th and either Pastrana or Windham 18th they will make it to final. The qualification is only 20min + 2 laps.

I swear some of you are so out of your minds.

Top 10-12? Get real. They wouldn't hold a candle compared to last year's team that actually scored 10-12.

They 100% are not qualifying for the A-Main. Get over it. IF they make the B-Main it's gonna be Pastrana DNF, Windham sucking wind 3 laps in and Sipes blowing up his PoS 125. They're doing it for the charity, not for results. So get over your wild disillusions.

|

Not much to say to Vitards.

9/7/2018 12:52 PM

I'm confused why Windham and Pastrana are training if they don't really plan on trying, and won't race the main. Why not just show up fat and out of shape for the fans and charity?

So there's a chance PR could qualify directly into the big show, without having to race two thirty minute motos? Would KW still not race the main then?
