A lot of the comments you guys are making is why I enjoy the outdoors series more than Supercross. They is a lot less holding back outdoors. If your faster, you can pass everywhere. Watching riders hang it out outdoors is pure speed vs terrain. Just so many more line options.
To go quick on a Supercross track you need to go faster than the next guy in short bursts. The course is limiting when this can happen. Its so much about timing and precision
+1. That's why Alessi and Bagget do so good in MX but not SX. It takes so much more throttle control in SX and AX. MX its just pin it to win it and whoever is the fastest with the most stamina wins.
SX is all about starts and not crashing or even bobbles, its literally racing for 10ths of seconds now.
