Anyone blow the main?
Or not qualify for the main at all?

I would put my pretend money on Webb finishing mid pack.

vomiting equals disqualification.

I think trying to pick the winner of the lcq is going to be tough.

Cooper Webb...of course. He's a head case.

I don't know. But if Roczen wins that, or any other round, there will be a major victory celebration in our household.

No one will choke at A1 unless someone sees the guy that stole Michael Akaydin's bike, then all bets are off.

A top 5 guy will finish 12th and be pissed

There is Gonna be 10 guys that Dont make the top 10
That are expected to and are gonna be bummed.
And there are gonna be a few that dont make the Main that are expected too
Gonna be an interesting night.

This brings up "who do you think makes up the gate for "The Main?"

Let's look at the team's/brands and who's who among them...
Anderson
Osborne
Wilson (on his own/not Rockstar Husqvarna wink )
Tomac
Savatgy
Musquin
Webb
Baggett
Bloss
Roczen
Seely
Barcia
Plessinger
Reed
Hill
Brayton
Stewart
Friese
Chisholm
Eticknap
Soubeyras
Ray
Bogle (on his own/not Phoenix)
Grant (on his own KXF)
Bowers (on his own VERY Factory KXF)

What's that...25?
There's 22 gates.
So, who's in The Main?

I ripped a start from Egypt and I was happy about that.

Pull up a lawn chair for Kyle, Cedric and Adam.

I'm not one to assume that stuff. Although, I understand how you got there.

And...have you ever seen a main where the super-fast factory guys didn't make the main? I have.
Remember Dodger Stadium? I do.
Ever seen an LCQ with too many fast guys? I have.
So, the theme to all that is "you never know".

It does imo also. I love all this bs negative spin people on here put on the riders. I’d love to see them with pressure on. It would probably be laughable.

Some on here are perpetual Cooper Webb haters. He has made mistakes, but who hasn’t at that age and not under the microscope that they are. Haven’t several guys made similar mistakes. Herlings among other contemporaries loves to shoot his mouth off.

Certain people here love to criticize our riders when they don’t meet expectations at the mx of Nations. I’d bet the riders take it harder than any of us, but we still pick them apart as if they’re unpatriotic. What a joke.

We all have a right to our opinions, but I get sick of all the negativity on here. It’s easy to sit behind a keyboard and criticize. It’s the brave who are in the arena doing their best and failing, not the coward who is afraid of the competition.

Merry Christmas!

We’re back to just heats and LCQs, right? Less room for error. Hell, RV even missed a main

Will DW15 take a ride if someone gets hurt or it will be Bogle that gets the call ?

Man this thread is almost unethical but he asked a legit question and if I was a rider, I would hate to see my name up here as a potential choker.

These dudes sacrifice alot to ensure they are prepared as can be for A1 so For that reason ill refrain from throwing out a name.

Moose can. If he gets balled up in the first turn.

12/25/2018 7:07 PM

James Stewart?

I won’t say choke, but I think the biggest disappointment out of any of the factory boys is going to be Seely this year. With AC knocking on the door for that ride next year, it’s a put up or shut up year for him. If he dosen’t come out on fire, it’s going to be a long season for him followed by a longer off season.

Tomac will. Stamp it

Rest assured, Seely will be just fine !

I’ll eat humble pie if he does. Your guarantee is entertaining though.

Every year there are asshole threads like this. This year I'm gonna use reverse psychology and say Reed sucks more than he thinks and will probably blow it. His speed is spent!

If Josh Grant is still racing, he always manages to find a way to start strong. Not sure what his plans are though.

Empty a bag of skittles into the toilet and then flush. It's like watching a five second long nascar race.

Johnny Ringo, are there really no semis this year?

Both classes?

|

12/26/2018 6:26 AM

With a line-up like that, only the 'title' contenders could 'choke' if they don't make the top 10.
Realistically, who are the 'title' contenders???? That's a whole different conversation.
From the earlier list, these are the ones that I think are realistically contenders THIS year.

Anderson
Tomac
Musquin
Roczen
Barcia

That being said, these are that wouldn't surprise me to be contending.

Webb
Baggett
Seely
Plessinger
Osborne


To answer the question of the ones at the top of my list, I'd say Barcia.

|

12/26/2018 6:53 AM

on a side note, looking at that list makes me realize how great a season this might be. there are more, but you can definitely count ten very interesting competitors: Anderson, Osborne, Tomac, Webb, Musquin, Roczen, Barcia, Hill, Savatgy, Plessinger.
