I think goats great insight that it happend due to the front wheel not turning is bullshit. Zack Bell fell down went boom. It happens.



this is not to be confused with Zack Bells big get off the previous week in Dallas where there was nobody breathing down his neck, though some people obviously have.

If it wasn't for Ralph, I would have never known Reed was from Australia.

If it wasn't for Fro, I wouldn't know starts were so important.

If it wasn't for the GOAT, I wouldn't yell at the TV so much and scare my dog.

Some interesting stuff going on in that photo.

1. the chain could not be any tighter.

2. he is running some pretty low gearing.

3. there is a lot of sag.

4. the front and rear rims look wider than stock.

I thought the chain looked tight. The mechanic has just hopped off I cropped the picture you can see remnants of his hand on the truck tire. Stewart is sitting forward as the mechanic has just hopped off and maybe the way the bike is set up the rebound is slow with his weight there even though he's far forward?

thats really the best in that series of shots for seeing the chain but I did think it looked tight for only him being on the bike with one foot on the ground.

front finger still on the brake as he had to anchor the bike with the front brake as the mechanic had hopped off, forks may be still compressed from that.

you have to look close you can see the reflection of the finger on the brake in the goggle lens and the truck wheel chrome.

His tire pressure looks a little to high too. When are they going to get things right and win a race.

Yeah, no telling what he could do if they would listen to us here and set his bike up right!

Track looks good. Not just one line. But it is rutting up so it may become one line. Whoops are fast with a nice double or triple out. You'll need to commit early to make the triple. A couple of big crashes already.

Bell had a big crash already. Rode off and was back a few minutes later.

Hate to say it but Stewart has the whoops dialed in. So does 1 and 18.

I was only making observations. No judgements.

I've read that the set up JS uses baffles most riders.
