BS. If it was the second to last corner, yeah, nurse it...but he stacked with 5 to go. At best he would have been passed by everyone on the track, at great risk to him (and thus his chance at points in upcoming rounds) not to mention the other riders on the track. Or, in the process of paddling around the track at noob speed he would have gotten in the middle of some mid-pack battle screwing up some privateer's shot at 12th and you clowns would be on here complaining about that! And he still would have finished in the same place.

Not to mention, most high level racing series would black flag a rider for what you wanted Stewart to do.

You really have no idea how motorcycle racing works, do you?

That guys isn't landing any 60 foot triples with those bars.

I don't see anything dirty about what Barcia did there. I definitely don't think it was an intentional take out.

I am woods riding guy..and have only been one for a few years now. I have never rode or raced MX. I am backwards from the usual motorcycle rider..as I have ridden street for 20+ years and only got into dirt(sand) a few years back. Most people I talk to rode dirt/mx for years as kids before ever riding street.

Watching these rider vids....it simply AMAZES me how fast they ride, and especially how far and how freaking high they go on those triples.

Yeah, I saw him at the old Sunnyvale PAL track racing a Bultaco. He stomped everybody and he was about 14. He was awesome. Saw him at Sand Hill Ranch a couple times too and later at the Oakland Coliseum on a Maico

RIP Magoo...

I like the useless fork boots on the upside down forks. Nice touch.

Hopefully that made it a little easier to ride while they were at it so he can hang in there for the end of the race and not fade.
