I like Stewart. Checkers or Wreckers.

I expected more from Roczen this year for some reason. He's doing well, I just expected him to be fighting for wins, not just podiums. Makes me wonder what might be going on. Maybe its just the best he can do. I don't know.

This kid is living his dream and he's one of the mechanics/workers at my local moto shop. He's doing pretty decent for what he's riding. Make a couple Main Events so far this year.

Nothing wrong with podiums, especially when it in the middle.

Nothing at all. It's nitpicky but it's kind of the difference between a 93% and a 99% sure they are both A's but....

Apparently you still don't get it.

Roczen won the race in Atlanta last Saturday.

Okay I got it. And he's second in points. Didn't realize that. I missed the TX race because my DVR decided not to record it I guess he's done it so quietly I didn't realize where he was. I stand corrected.

I want anyone but RV to win the title, he just seems like an asshole; and some people I am friends with in that world who have experiences with him share that sentiment.

It seems a little rough to say that about someone you've never met, in a most public forum.

RV is a racer,he races to win. Its his job.

You can never tell around here...

So all kidding aside... what does it take to boot 800 off the track... or out of the sport ? He's def the Happy Gilmore of MX.

Alessi needs a new trainer. The kind that lets you lye on a couch in their office. He got some serious issues going on. After center punching a guy he then get the hole shot in the final and was looking pretty good until he started to get challenged and then he basically let five guys pass him without putting up a fight at all. I think he got the talent to win just not the control of his emotions to keep his head clear and focused.

Maybe he has his bike geared especially for the hole shot. He certainly gets out front often enough and then just holds up the faster guys. That was the biggest Cry-baby move he made on Tickel I have ever seen. I doubt any other sanctioning body would have allowed him to race in the main after that.
