Looks like there could be a quad if the jump face is steep enough.

Awesome video! I'm so glad they didn't put any terrible music in it... that is the only way racing videos are meant to be watched.

It was fun watching him catch back up to Canard. He didn't seem to change his lines or pace much besides stay out of one or two of the deeper ruts he was hitting. I guess that's all it takes for a few tenths of a second to catch back up.

Similar thing happened at A1 a few years ago; Josh Grant won the race while the title favorites, Reed/Villopoto/Dungey all fell or just had terrible setups. A1 is always a toss up.

With that said, I'm not sure Villopoto is truly in consistent race mode, as is Stewart. Remember, Villopoto has only raced 3 times in the past 8 months, while Stewart has barely touched a track as part of a race in the past 18 months.

I think Reed and Villopoto both rebound this week, with Canard still in the thick of it. Barcia needs time to still figure out the indoors on the 450 (he's an extremely talented outdoor rider, where his "who gives a fuck!" riding style really works).

I'll take Villopoto, Dungey and Canard podium. Millsaps to put in another good top 5 run.

There's always the chance that Villopoto's knee is on his mind,he's injured it what,twice?This could remove some of his edge and open the door for others to contend.

That's a great video. Pretty humbling. Those guys catch more air in one race than I do all year.

Actually, they catch more air in one jump than I do all year.

He also won the first two outdoors last year. Looked pretty good.

That track seemed to limit any high speed sections where you would see a Villopoto or Stewart try something others wouldn't, except for that one quad jump, lots of steep jumps that slowed riders down.
That may be by design, or a limitation caused by the baseball stadium layout.

Dipshit Hansen sitting this one out, stupid punk.

Hope he's run out of second chances taking rides from deserving kids.

I saw someone posted something on Nicoletti's Facebook about Hansen being a scumbag for causing Nicoletti to crash. Anyone know anything?

Typical 'lil Hanny move.
Took out his back wheel,same shit he's always done.
As you know(maybe) I've never liked the douche.
If it wasn't for his dad,who I'm sure is real proud,he wouldn't even be a blip on the radar.

No class punk IMHO.
