hat was crazy. Roczen had some bad luck and tomac just looked off and couldn't capitalize on it. He must have ruined himself by riding a 450. Lol

Reed also looked off or was just not trying hard. The top three would drive in and out of our corner. When reed came through it looked like he was on a Sunday ride.

It was amazing to see how fast they come into the corner and how early they get back to wfo. The back of the pack, who are still extremely fast, look like a bunch of noobs. Lots of brakes in, slow through the middle and on it when they are almost straight. And they look like they are working three times harder.

Crazy how slow pro's make mortals look.

Now bring on motocross in Aug.

Villopoto is the man, he had everything to lose while Millsapps and Dungey it was win or die and they just couldn't get him.

Did anyone get the feeling that RV was not pushing the ragged edge like the other two because they would get pretty close but never enough to get the door open for the pass. He knows how and when to get business done and thats why he's a 3 peat.

I got the feeling that every time the three rider train came up on a lapper that the lapper would yield to what they thought was one rider coming through and didn't realize that there were two more right behind him, thus screwing things up.
There was one lapper (ignoring the blue) that I thought the flag man was going to clothesline the idiot with his flag in an attempt to get him to yield. What a douche. This was after RV had went through and he saw what was going on.

Yup, Milsaps is the real deal alright. His pass of RV in the heat was sick!

Start of the race and the end of Dungey and Millsap's chances.

Who was saying RV's heart isn't in it? H didn't need to win last night but he did just to show who's the boss.

It was like Dungey didn't know what to do with the lead.

He certainly had the speed mid-race.

I think they were all running as hard as they could, just with the track being somewhat one-lined there was nothing left. Maybe through the whoops but they could not get close enough. I think R.V. would have preferred a little more gap on second. Nice mistake-free race by the top 3!

Nice job by Jason Anderson,tho you wouldn't know it by Speed's coverage of the sketchy ride by Tomac.And I hope Roczen wins the title but,WHAT A DOUCHE! WTF?Hell of a battle in the 450's,Sheheens still an assbag.

what is Sheheen doing wrong? not my favorite announcer but not bad. Erin needs replacing with somebody younger/cuter.

if nothing else he is enthusiastic. the biggest problem with the broadcasts is that the announcers aren't always in sync with the action on screen. last night particularly. at the end of the day I can live with Sheheen and I will second Erin needs to either move on or be less dramatic and show a little more respect and empathy when interviewing riders who've just had serious mishaps. this isn't wrestling.

I'm glad I'm not the only one who doesn't get the Sheheen bashing. Could the commentary be better? maybe. But I think Sheheen, Windam, and Emig do a good job. Maybe they should hire Brent Mussberger and John Madden to call the races. Do you think that would be an improvement? I have no problem with Erin Bates either.

Dungey left the door open and rode around the turn too casually,RV had to pass him.
Dungey needs to bring the killer instinct to the surface more often then twice a year,especially on the starts.
Heck of a consistent rider but .........

Maybe he'll kick ass outdoors.

Sheheen sorta promotes excitement for excitement's sake whether somethings really happening on the track or not,sometimes gets guy's names wrong,but overall he does pretty good.
Emig does his best to keep it rolling,getting better at it.
Carmichael is a racer commenting on racers,could be worse.

They already have about 6 or 9 younger cuter board holder girls running around winking and wiggling in synchronized brainlessness.
Not that there's anything wrong with that.

Erin does fine,she knows the racers and gets the basics done.
And still very nice to look at.
