Have enjoyed watching Millsaps success this year. Big props to him for another W!

Crazy coincidence that just a few days ago we were discussing here red flags and that line up/restart procedure and last nite we see it happen. Any word on the rider that went down hard enough to cause a red flag? OK I hope.

>"RV has not really been on his game these last two races. They didn't show him much but watching the timing across the top of the screen it would seem like he was fixing to start forward then he would actually lose a place. Kind of strange."

Moved up to 4th, started to challenge for 3rd... then fell down. I think he was riding 'over the edge'. I guess its probably something you gotta do when you want to win from a mid-pack start.

I think Aldon Baker is a lot of hooey.

2 good races. Great ride by Milsaps. Every time Reed or Barcia made a charge, he stayed steady and consistent until they fell back again.

Great scrap throughout the race for 4th through 7th. The track was tough, but that didn't stop those guys from trading places and making mistakes all over the place.

I thought it was interesting that Bubba quietly took 4th. I was expecting him to fade. I wonder if they have figured a way to work on his endurance, even with the bum knee?

What a season!

He said last race that the knee wasn't bothering him and he's been able to get more time in the saddle, therefore better endurance. Look for him to be on the podium soon...if he doesn't crash and injure himself first

Agree...it has been a great season so far. If everyone stays healthy, it will get even better!

Looks like you watched the same race I watched.

I saw a bunch of passing going on.

sure. you keep hearing his name like the 2nd coming of jesus christ.

if he gets the credit when his gravy trains are winning he should get the blame when they aren't.

but he doesn't deserve either. guys win when it is their time to win. if helps them train fine, great, but he's no more important than the guy doing the suspension or the guy changing the tires.

While I agree with most of what you've said, I have to disagree that the personal trainer is only as important as the suspension guy or a tire changer.

A personal trainer deals with a lot of mental issues like motivation and attitude, both of which are needed to properly train and race. A trainer also deals with stuff from sleep to food, how hard to train, and how much rest between training and races.

I see. Who was Kenny Roberts personal trainer? Or Scott Parkers?

KR=Kel Carruthers.

Parker=Bill Werner

They weren't called personal trainers and rarely got public credit. In those days they were more like handlers.

I agree Flug. They ain't doctors... They are gym people that found a market.

you've just grossly insulted Bill Werner and Kel Carruthers.

and another thing. If I see Ricky Fowler's name associated with "star" or anything to do with greatness I'm going to run into a Dicks Sporting Goods and knock over a display of oversized drivers.

christ aren't we supposed to win big tournaments and several of them to be considered a star? he should go back to dirt bikes because he isn't exactly setting the PGA on fire.
