Well...KTM is claiming they can save 12 lbs on air suspension.

All aluminum construction on the suspension, no steel spring or shaft.

I thought it interesting that the injured Stewart won his heat race, but then observe who he was racing against. All his main competition was in the other heat. Get to the main and he was an also-ran. I really didn't think we was even going to start. Wonder if he got an ultimatum from corporate.

They will sell every one they can produce, the super senior class of your local AMA district will be full of them.

Webb looks like he's aged 10 years since he took over the team a few years ago.

>"Don't know what happened with RV. Maybe trying too hard to live up to expectations. "

Bummer that he got a bad start. But then he became 'the fastest man' on the track to make up time... until he lawn darted... and lawn darted... and...

Gotta learn to slow down, bad start = pretty tough to win, probably smart to settle for 4th or 5th and wait for next week (ala Dungey).

Anyone know why RV stopped to take his glove off?

damn those last few laps were great

Milsaps is always one of my under dog pics for the podium...maybe he and his team got something good and can make this happen more often this season

I've always liked Millsaps and thought when he was coming out of the Lites, he was going to be a major player.
I remember his first year on the big bikes. He was the holeshot king (much like Alessi is now) but couldn't hold a lead and would fade to mid pack.
As the years have gone by, he has seemed disinterested. The poster boy for "I'm making a good living, I'm famous, who cares if I am competitive?"

But as you say nobrakes, he looks like a different guy, and said himself last night that this is the first time he really worked in the offseason.
He's always been refreshingly candid in interviews and he sounded like a guy who finally got his shit together.
Good for him.

I might add, I would have a hard time watching these broadcasts without a DVR.
Jeez, what a load of crap they surround the races with!
I know we should be grateful that we get live broadcasts, but a full hour of fawning bullshit before the first gate drop? Wow. It gets worse every year.
I opted to do something else until I could catch up and see the mains in real time.
Otherwise, a great race. Looks like an interesting season.

I have to give it a 2 hour head start, and it works out just right.

I'd watch the fluff shit if that bearded assclown would jump a freestyle bike into a pool of energy drink stocked with starving alligators.

I guess I'm in the minority... I sorta enjoyed Rutledge trying to induce a bit of humor into the broadcast, and teamed up with that miss supercross hottie, it wasn't too bad. Emig and RC don't add much humor, and sometimes they even have trouble getting out a coherent sentence (preperate?), so I thought Rutledge was a nice addition.

And speaking of Emig and RC... I'm surprised Speed has stuck with those guys for this long. They aren't very good broadcasters, and I don't think they've improved one bit over the last few seasons. I know they have street credit with their racing credentials, but man are they hard to listen to sometimes. Isn't there anybody else out there they could get? Hasn't David Bailey done some broadcasting work? If its him I'm thinking of, he was a pretty good announcer.
