It's a good thing for the rest of the field that James doesn't ride like that very often. When he's on, he's truly an alien. Even if RV was healthy, I don't think he could have stayed with him.

Overall RV is the best rider out there, but when 7 finds the go button, he's gone.

When RV is healthy and feels the need to win Stewart will not stay with him. If he does try to stay with him he will lawn dart.

When Stewart was in his prime he could not keep RC in sight outdoors, sometimes in SX he could. Sometimes.

He was just racing a bunch of slugs in Toronto.

Hey Flug,

Thanks for the JS7 series from 'Dilla. Those shots in that single berm are very powerful. Reminds us all why we love these riders who can do such remarkable things with a motorcycle that is so fleetingly 'connected' to its surface.

Stewart didn't come from very far back time wise. 11th place first lap and they were bunched up. He wasn't able to put much of a gap on Barcia and Dungey.

RC used to come from farther back than that and put 20 seconds on second place. And second place was Chad Reed.

Seriously?
Not what the thousands of paying spectators witnessed while you were home with your RV (fap, fap, fap) sock puppet. We watched the televised edition when we got home from the race today. There is so much that is not revealed on the tube but you already know that too. Peace out bro.

RV has had the opportunity more than once this year to run the leader down and pass him, and declined to do so.

Stewart's speed comes from his ability to find ways around the track no one else sees. He always finds lines and rhythms that seem impossible. And as a result of that he comes off the bike in a spectacular fashion making his offs memorable. And the way he can blitz the whoops also contribute to some stunning yard sales.No matter what he is one of the most instinctual riders in any discipline of motorsport.

And it was nice to see him win a clean one last night.

RV has been in counting points mode for the last few races, but you are well aware of that. His serious racing is over for this season, all he has to do from a couple of races ago is dodge bullets, he did a pretty good job of that last night.

Stewart is a non factor for the rest of this SX season.

And RV is pretty far down on my list of favorite riders.

It took him 14 laps to catch and pass 10 guys, that's less than one per lap. And one of those was the pace car.

In that same time Dungey was able to catch and pass 3 guys. For Dungey to pass 3 guys is impressive!

Apparently, you missed one of the best SX performances that the rest of us have seen in a long, long time. Oh well.......
