I know golf isn't the most exciting thing to watch but the Masters is pretty special and would make one heck of a MX track.

That place is alive, gave me goosebumps walking onto the grounds.

TV and pictures don't do justice to how immaculate the joint is, the grass is nicer than the carpet in my house.

The pay back on that one will be fun to watch.

Bowers can deliver a smack down, hope he listens to the bosses at his potential new employer and keeps his cool.

Thing is, if he doesn't educate Wharton, then wharton will keep doing it. Bowers is experienced enough to know that.

I actually thought he'd have raced more 450 mains.

I thought I was the only one who looked at a golf course and saw a motocross track.

Most likely Bowers is smart enough to know the time and place to let Wharton know he made a mistake. Right now is not either so my guess is he'll ride as hard and clean as he can to impress his future boss.

Cheap shots...

Wharton is a punk (Like Barcia) who will also learn when he rides with the big boys.
In the meantime he had better steer clear of Tomac!

When the crowd is cheering but nothing special is going on with the video something is wrong. Several times that went on, then the running order had changed. Bad for a next day airing to leave out so many important passes.

The organizers are making it clear that knocking people on their ass is ok,so why not take Wharton for a ride with a sweet take out move?

Not a word was said about Wharton's takedown of Bowers by officialdom?

Next guys will be practicing their takeout moves at the practice track.

Ive also seen feedback online elsewhere,none of it at all good for Wharton.

sounds like Whartons stunt was really blatant. I haven't seen it yet but sure would like to.

Imagine the 10th tee at Augusta being a starting line. a downhill left hander and then haul ass down the 11th fairway.

I don't think there was anyone in that stadium that was watching anything but the battle at the front. It was a hometown crowd cheering on "their" rider, if there were other important passes, I certainly didn't see them and didn't care cause they weren't for the lead
