Thumbs down Shame Shame Roger

us like that. There is no way in hell Dungey broke his shifter twice without hitting anything/anyone. He looked about as believable as Obama talking about the Libya debacle.

What Roger was saying is that the first time someone bumped into Dungey, causing him to hit a tough block and it bent the shifter. The second time Dungey hit the tough block on his own, so it was his own fault.

I totally felt Roger threw Dungey under the bus. He looked embarrassed and the interview was somewhat awkward. I got the impression Roger was dismissive and blamed Dungey. I believe he stated that Dungey "stepped on the shifter" too hard and broke it during the 2nd moto.

How "tough" are these tough blocks? Enough to bend a shifter that gets routinely slammed during a race? Has anybody in this thread ever bent their shifter like Dungey did? I can understand a rock maybe but not so sure about a tough block.

Two times in back to back motos is unheard of, embarrassing and put Dungey in harms way. I'd be pissed if I was him but he totally kept his cool during the interviews. I don't have any anti-KTM agenda, I more so feel bad for Dungey and thought Roger was lame.




Either way, it was a fun event and I hope it continues. I would have loved to see Baggett and Windham race. Can't wait til A1

Probaly what happened

Dungey bent the shift lever on a tuff block in the first heat. The shift lever also rotated on the splines of the shift shaft. Mechanic replaced the shift lever, not the damaged shift shaft.
Second heat Dungey stomps down on the shift lever, and it rotates on the damaged splines. Thats what The Man meant by Dungey bent the lever. Without hitting anything.

They bend, but they don't break like the alloy ones. And you can bend them back, though I never tried it in the air!?!
