Maybe he has Aldon Baker as a trainer.

The guys behind them should have rode better.

We are in a rare moment of a sky that is almost all Pisces. As I've said a few times, there's been nothing like this since the 1960s, the last time Chiron was in Pisces. If you were born in the '60s this may be a very exciting, original, energetic and creative time for you.

Chiron is joined by retrograde Mercury, which due to the retrograde is spending more than two months in Pisces (February 5 through April 13). Venus just jumped into the pond, and is conjunct Neptune, the modern ruler of Pisces. Then we have Mars, and the Sun—plus a new, small (and very Piscean) object called Borasisi—that's the one about how belief interacts with our perception of reality.

That's the nature of Pisces: what is real and what is not, and how do we know? To an artist, filmmaker or musician, what they are creating is what is real. Then anyone who relates to it will experience it as being real, with the power to affect and even change them.

To someone else, imagery, cinema or music may be seen as a diversion or illusion. Borrowing a bit from Dickens, fact or fancy? Well, retrograde Mercury in Pisces sure is blurring the line.

But still, cool to see these guys getting excited when winning. Musquin with Heel Clickers. Hahn with the knack-knack.

Who designs the other tracks? It seems they might want to contact Carmichael a bit more often. The fact that every racer said how fun the track was, the multiple lines that could be taken, and the phenomenal racing we got to see. Is this the nature of the more "open" concept track? Either way, great to see a race not decided after the 1st turn.

Great racing!

Andrew
The Daytona track has a lot more room to work with than the stadium tracks. Daytona seems closer to a Nationals track than a Supercross track, which is why I enjoyed it more. A lot of the riders seemed to really like it to.

For a guy whose posts are often disjointed ramblings, this is a new record.

the guys behind them have been grappling with 450's for months now not sandbagging on 250's with $30,000 motors going against kids trying to make a go of it on stock bikes so there is a fatigue/wear and tear factor to keep in mind for "the guys behind them" when compared to the fresher pampered bodies of young masters Roczen and Tomac.
