Ryan Dungey: 'If you're a lapper you've got to move over.' 14

Things are getting tighter at the top of the 450 class, and Ryan Dungey wasn't impressed with Chad Reed hogging the main line as he was pursuing Eli Tomac. Listen in.

    Maybe this will help some of you.

    4.15 Flags and Lights
    a. Solid Blue Flag :
    1. Indicates you are about to be overtaken by faster riders.
    2. When conditions allow, move out of the fast line.
    3. Hold your line (don’t ride erratically) and do not impede the faster riders progress.
    4. Riders disregarding the blue flag may be black-flagged at the discretion of Race Director.

    Reed was holding his line and dungy wasnt fast enough to get around him and when he did tomac still put more time between himself and ryan. Payback for a smart remark? Maybe. Penalty for a rule violation? Not at all.

    Dungey wasn't fast enough? Are you for real? Dungey was gaining on Tomac and lapping Reed! Not being fast enough would mean unable to pass Reed and over take his position. Some of you guys know very little about the sport apparently.

    Reed was not in the race, he was in 16th place. Should be one blue flag then your off the track! He's a past champion and he knows better, he should be fined!

    Reed was getting lapped in 16th half way through the race, whats he racing for 15th? Because not getting 15th is going to shatter his 9th place season dreams and that massive participation trophy.

    The law says if you are a lapper you must hold your line and not do anything erratic ! IE not move over. I think the reason for this is leaders coming through have got caught out by lappers moving over but inadvertently getting tangled with the lapper so the rule of thumb is just hold your line and let the leaders who have the best view of the situation chose how they wants to overtake.

    Read the rule again!! The rule clearly stats the lapper has to get out of the fast line and then hold his line! So yes moving over or getting your old ass out of the way is implied! That's why they're asking if Reed should receive a penalty!

    Obviously Reed was in the slow line that's why he was in 16th. Penalty? Are you a soccer mom?

    Its not Reeds fault the AMA doesn't have the balls to black flag him.
