Maybe Dungey can't keep up thanks to that new fangled on-board electric start on his race bike. If it were so good they would use it in Moto GP!


That was the best track I've seen in a few years other than Daytona. They've been getting kind of cookie cutter, one lined and bland for the past 2 or 3 years. It seemed to give the riders lots of good passing opportunities to! Hopefully they keep it up.

This seems like the thickest field of fast guys for as long as I've been a fan.
In the past, there was one alien, maybe two. The rest fought for third.

Now, there is no dominant rider. Should make for good racing while the riders are still healthy.

Has anyone heard any news on a possible Barcia injury from last weekend? I am thinking that if he broke his nose (which looked really possible) it could be hard to breath in the next couple rounds...

Maybe. Villapoto looked unstoppable. I think his bike is dialed and the cobwebs from the layoff are gone. After watching him this weekend, I think everybody else is fighting for 2nd in the championship.

As much as I hate to admit it, I think this is the way it's going to be.
However, he can't screw up because there will be 4 guys right at his heels, not going to be any of those 20 sec or more leads.

I read he had a gash on his eye brow which needed stitches and broken nose... no confirmation if he'll race in Oakland but.. I have a feeling he'll be back and ticked off.. look out!! Video of his incident: http://www.motoxaddicts.com/2013/01/...-anaheim-2-sx/

Something to hold us over till Saturday..

I wonder if he will go the way of offroad-Not 110% all of the time and Mike Brown and others seem to be doing rather well...I would like to see him ride more perhaps just not MX

>"Villapoto looked unstoppable. "

Yup.

1st race : He was behind and tried to make up places too fast, lunched.
I think he learned from that.

2nd race : He was back and passed every rider but Barcia. I think that another two or three laps and he would have passed for first.

3rd race : Back and he passed every rider.

If he gets a start, I think he's just gone. (Unless he lawn-darts or gets taken out by someone else)

Barcia may have screwed up but damn mad respect for staying on the bike and actually riding it off. These guys are animals

Not the time for sucking dicks just yet - but if he does - you'll be given credit for calling it

If were already picking title winners then you have to think about what Chad Reed always said "you have to be in it to win it" and this year he is doing just that. Remember Tim Ferry won the 125cc title and never won a race the whole year.
