Well, for him to not win the LCQ... he was basically out there with a bunch of second tier riders. He probably could win coming off the line in last. Should have won easily... and he did.
>"Keeps it clean, rides his ass off, doesn't make mistakes, wins the main."
He had a lousy start position that turned out to be lucky that night. For an 'ordinary' start he would have been back in the pack... but the inside track piled up and he rode around the outside. IMHO: Luck.
>"Your definition of luck and my definition are definitely different."
Bad luck would have the shock going flat in the main.
Whales were everywhere. On the beach, on the hillsides. One crossed the road in front of us… it was a big beluga!
