[QUOTE=Assfault;20407503]Wow, what a great race!
Somebody around here has inside info me thinks.
Milsaps just wouldn't quit. That there is what racing is all about. Can't wait till the next one. ]

Pastrana had it predicted too. Davi looked great. Loved seeing Trey and him congratulating each other at the end. Dungey looked a bit rough early (I heard he had an AIR SHOCK...i.e. no coil!!) but he got it together and is in good position. Villopoto and Stewart though!! How many times was Villo off the bike or off the track or both? Ya can't win the championship in the first race but ya sure can lose it. Time will tell the extent of their injuries. Reedy will get his speed back and be in the hunt. We were hoping Barcia would get in the mix and he sure did. Musta crashed about the time Canard was passing Milsaps (heard the crowd yelling) but he'll make it interesting for sure.

Like Gordy, we too have Moto 4 and I think it is pretty darn good! We too loved the Tomac section, but also really liked some of the other stuff such as the Kendall Norman segment..

What an opener!!! I never saw that coming...

I enjoyed seeing Canard have success, considering his recent injuries. He's a class act!!

Look at some his lap times in qualifying versus the 450's, he was hauling the mail.

In the main his fastest lap was faster than the 450's.

They even mentioned Pastrana's prediction on 'Speed Center'. They didn't mention Mr. Magoo though...

gonna have to consult with Gordy on that one, since he's going to be sneaking around the pits and logging practice times----

2012 Phoenix SX with KTM making history.



Considering going again. We'll decide last minute though. Probably go to Dallas as we've got family in Ft. Worth.

My predictions for next week:
RV2 is going to rebound and win Phoenix
2nd Canard
3rd Dungy


Stewart may or may not race, depends on whether or not he gets a paper cut between now and next week.

I thought Tomac looked fast,out qualified all the 450's and faster lap time in the main.
All that highly paid skill and cunning on their bad ass 450's and they cant beat a 250?

Great races in both classes either way!

He looked fast but RV had his number in that first heat race and caught him fairly easily, just not enough time to make a pass. He and RV have some history so it's going to get interesting!

Canard was definitely a class act congratulating Milsaps like that.....I was getting a little too excited watching the last couple of laps and almost woke up the wife laying next to me
