Shit, he sat at home for a good portion of that time.

Now he's launching his own apparel line, and flying as the solo rep for a factory team that almost ceased to exist after Dungey.

Get it done, or learn how to backflip and wakeboard.

Did I see that Davey Millsaps is with Suzuki this year?

Looks like the internet wins again.

CBS coverage is so poor and next day, wish they would just stay out of it. Not much difference than no coverage.

Is there an internet feed for those races somewhere?

I don't see any of this as making much difference in the long haul. The win is a toss up between 6 riders if we add Barcia to the mix.

What's important for those 6 is being on the podium at A1, winner makes a mark with Ralph Sheheen, not those other 5 or the series championship. A1 is just a warmup to work the kinks out.

You can't win the championship at the first race but you sure can lose it.

Id like to see Tomac mixing it up on 450's, I like the way he rides.


In reality,if Dungey stays healthy he will win Supercross. Decoster and him have a good formula.

Lackey, Croft, Smith, Hansen, Weinert, Tripes, Jones, etc etc as was Rick Johnson. He was somewhat aloof and while approachable he almost made it seem like he was doing you a favor just by being borne. Most of those guys are just as friendly as can be at this stage of the game. Rick Johnson seemed a bit condescending but obviously thats not always the case.
Brad Lackey comes up to a local singletrack/MX/cross country race with barb-q/band/party,hes just a regular guy when hes there,his kid has won the race at least once, but its just a fun race with huge water hole and some mini enduro cross obstacles. Brad's a major draw in Europe,they appreciate him more over there then his own country. Always a hero though.

Speed Channel is carrying the race both on Saturday and replaying it on Sunday (at least that's what I have DVRed at my friend's house cause I don't get Speed).

I'm not sure about internet feeds.

Anybody??

The first two races (Anaheim & Phoenix) will be shown live on Speed at 9:30 pm EST.

12 races will be shown live on Speed this season with the others being split between Speed and CBS.

Yes, the lone 450 in the Rockstar kid's camp.

He's another guy that is running out of time, and opportunities at top notch equipment.

Hope he is there near the front a few times.

It doesn't but I still think for Reed it would be "bigger" than the others.

If Dungey or RV win it will be anticlimatic. If Stewart wins everyone will assume he'll self destruct soon enough. Barcia coming off 2 Lites titles also not earth shattering.

I just think if Reed can do it that it makes the biggest news.

I think Stewart completing a whole season would be the biggest..
