you only live once. my first time SX in February in Dallas was worth every penny. who knows maybe some day Washougal is a housing development like Saddleback. Or was it Carlsbad. Who knows. Washougal looks to be really close to Portland airport you probably wouldn't even need a rental car. Fly out. Get to a hotel as close as you can and hitch a ride to the track and head for Horsepower Hill.

You're absolutely right. Unadilla has been crossed off of the calendar,Washougal here I come. My flight to Portland is booked.

I think I'm going to ride up from Oklahoma just to see Ryan put it on Ryan at his home track!


Well, I am planning on riding up there, I kinda like both those guys so just hoping for a close race between them.
Hopefully with three of four others getting in the mix.

I went to three GPs in the 80s. The track was still grass and the Hill People were absolutely off the chain. In the 80s, Unadilla still rocked!

That would be a super ride. If you decide to ride out, be sure to take enough time for sight seeing, there is some incredible scenery between Oklahoma and Washougal.

I too like both Ryans, but once the nationals get started, I think Villapoto will be the man to beat. But I think Dungy and a few others will keep him honest.

The ride is already planned, I just decided to look at the schedule and see if I would come close to any MX and Wow! I'm scheduled to be north of Seattle the Tuesday after Washougal!
It will be a good ride, I've made it before a few years ago, the race will be a bonus.

I am thinking about going to the second stop in Lakewood Co. Is it worth paying the extra money to get into the pits?

Wicked 2013 AMA Motocross Outdoor Nationals!!!

450ís

Can anyone stop the Ryanís who own every 450 title since 2010?

Will Davi Millsaps opt for knee surgery instead of riding the outdoors and who will ride his bike if he does?

Will James Stewart make it through an entire season?

Will Chad Reed find his lost speed?

Will Mike Alessi and his new found technology make him a factor in this stacked field?

Will the Muscle Milk Boys take down Moto wins?



250ís

Will Eli Tomac still be on a 250?

How about Dean Wilson?

Will Blake Baggett be 100% in time?

Do Ken Roczen and Marvin Musquin have this class covered in the outdoors?

Will Malcolm Stewart find a ride?

Isnít J-Law starting his comeback at Hangtown?



The 2013 Motocross season should be one for the ages. Hereís hoping that everyone stays healthy and we the fans become the biggest winners of this yearís outdoor season.

Discuss.

450s

No, the guy's on fire.

No, he's riding to well to stop the season of his life.

No

No, I think he's in the twilight of his career.

No, technology helps, but it all comes down to who's behind the bars.

Yes, Barcia will be in the thick of the fight.

250s

Yes, the 450 field is too deep to move up.

Yes.

Yes, good bet for the championship

Roczen, maybe, Musquin, not so much.

Maybe a privateer team

Again?

Will Davi Millsaps opt for knee surgery instead of riding the outdoors and who will ride his bike if he does? If I was him I'd get it fixed. He seems OK though.

Will James Stewart make it through an entire season?

Will Chad Reed find his lost speed? I hope, He just doesn't seem the same since the big crash though.

Will Mike Alessi and his new found technology make him a factor in this stacked field? He'll pull hole shots then get passed.

Will the Muscle Milk Boys take down Moto wins? Barcia will take wins. Maybe run at the title.


250ís

Will Eli Tomac still be on a 250? Yes, article on RacerX about it.

How about Dean Wilson? Riding Pro Circuit 450.

Will Blake Baggett be 100% in time? Hard to say. Fast as Hell outside though.

Do Ken Roczen and Marvin Musquin have this class covered in the outdoors? Musquin will be fast. We know Roczen is.

Will Malcolm Stewart find a ride? Hard to say.

Isnít J-Law starting his comeback at Hangtown? Riding a 450.
