I've been out of town, so I DVR'd the coverage and have only watched the first two stages so far. Did anyone see the full-pucker save by that Kawasaki rider in stage two? It was a bunny hop from one side of his tank to the other, then back onto the seat. Sometimes it's better to be lucky than good.

I'm cheering for Team Husquvarna and Team Honda -- Those guys are running high-mount front fenders like proper dirtbikes. Sure you give up a bit of advertising space, but damn, they look sharp.

Here is what Honda should build.

"NBC Sports" channel



This channel used to be called "Versus". The HD shots are nice...but not enough bike coverage. They only give a half-hour, splitting it up among the Cars / Bikes / Garbage Trucks / Quads.

They also seem to dedicate an inordinate amount of time to covering Robby Gordon's hissy-fits. And no more mexican T&A (not sure if this is a good or bad thing - last years' commentator was fun to watch...as long as the volume was turned waaaay down).
