Probably, but he was also consistently beating Short, Grant, Weimer and others who've been mentioned so far.
I think he's faster at the outdoors than he is in supercross. Didn't he win a main this year in outdoor, holding off Dungey or Stewart for the entire race? In SX, I think he'll consistently be the next fastest guy behind the usual RV, RD, CR, and JS (and Barcia) freight train.
