RV for the title.
If he gets hurt, then it's Dungey's.
Wild Card pick: Barcia
what say you all?

Stewart looked good in the Monster MX, we will see if he can keep it together for a full season. If he does then he is a legit contender for the title along with RV and Dungey.

No matter who wins it this is going to be a great season for the fans with so many great riders that are capable of winning.

JS really is the unknown spoiler to RV.

Assuming no injuries, Vilopoto wins another title. If RV gets hurt then Dungey will probably win it. If both are hurt then it gets interesting. I know that's the safest, most boring prediction but that's how it's going down.

I don't know if I'd call it boring. I remember once when I was out on the GS at a local scenic overlook that draws literally hundreds of bikes on a nice Sunday as they parade in either coming out of the city/long island/jersey or on the way home. a stunning view of the river and just close enough to be able to see the tall building of Manhattan fairly well with the naked eye. I was under a shade tree and over heard some female pirate commenting to her male counterpart that they'd done 150 miles that day with general tone that when it came to 2 wheels they were really not two people to be taken lightly. I'd already done several trips west on the GS (miss those..) and just bit my tongue. these days I'm in total awe of decent mini riders and even some of the 65cc riders. I suppose if someone gave me a new water cooled GS I wouldn't turn it down but if it went out west it would be in a van.

we need to keep reminding ourselves that RV and RD are riding at a level never seen before and that includes Ricky "I'n the greatest ever just ask me" Charmichael. Add to that the fact that just a split second behind them come in very unruly and no particular order Malcom and James Stewart, Reed, Milsapps, Barcia, Tomac, Canard, Roczen, and a split second behind them all the usual suspects etc etc etc. These guys are riding at levels that by definition are not possible, on a regular basis. Picking the most potent can of greased lightning to ever meet a can opener is not boring given all the particulars. What was the question?

I still maintain that if somebody pushes RV he gets rattled and goes faster then he can,then goes down hard. Stewart is the only one capable of pushing him and he tends to take himself out as we know.

It was good to see James smiling and on top at the Monster MX,RV hit the deck like a box o rocks there,musta hurt.

I guess no new fast Euros want to come over and try their luck?

Let's make the title generic, shall we?
