Limp it around, pussy!




No start for Tomac tonight. Maybe he was actually injured during his heat race last week & unable to ride.
Racing SX is probably a little more demanding than what mast of us, myself included, do for work...

And quit showing the highlight of the race DURING the race.

That RV kid, who's his trainer? Oops, sorry...

Stewart's pre-race interview something along the line of they haven't seen what I have to bring yet.
Post race results, still haven't seen it.

I think I'm going to have to offically quit holding out for Dungey to learn how to pass. I really like the guy and he can ride fast, really fast, but sometimes I get the feeling he wouldn't even pass me. Notice I say won't pass, not that he can't, really got frustrating watching him follow Brayton around almost 20 laps and making no attempt to pass.

But other than that there was some really good racing tonight
Both classes!

I like the split screen, if you're at the races you don't just watch one little group of riders, you watch several at a time.
Split screen does take some getting used to but I like being able to follow more than just the same couple of riders for the entire race.

I know that Mr. Obvious.

This was referring to the dopes that said Stewart should have continued racing with the pretzeled handlebars. I know Tomacs hurt and probably hurt pretty bad to miss any of this.

It's a THREAD. Oftentimes comments are derived from previous ones.

I agree. I really like the guy but how did he rise without being more aggressive?
I don't get it.

How can you be a fast guy if you're on the couch? Most couches aren't that fast. LOL

I like the split screen. Maybe on a smaller TV it would be bad but on the big screen, it's fine.

However, I swore last night to not ever buy another Toyota.
Most. Annoying. Commercials. Of the night.

Thankfully, I was recording the race, NFL game and a then a basketball game so that I could switch around and avoid them.

RV won, but he sure didn't check out like he did last year.
So far, we've had some damn good racing!

How about the great question pre race for Dungey?

What are your goals tonight? WTF do you think his goals are?

Charmichaels observation of Reed. "he's consistent all the time"

Reeds interview. " If I have another 2013 this year you will definitely NOT see me back here next year. "

Cole Seeley blames it on a stomach bug he's had all week. Weak.

Awesome stuff by Jason Anderson.

KTM finally loses a main event in 2014.

102 Moss gets the holeshot. FINALLY someone steps up.

Weston Peick is not living up to all the "why doesn't Peick have a ride" buzz.

Nice plug by Brayton for the all new 2014 YZ450F and nice to finally see another week in week out 5-10 spot rider step it up ala Milsapps 2013 and make things interesting.

Aldon Bakers training program for Roczen is clearly not working he put all his eggs in one basket working up to last week but he's now obviously spent and not able to keep the pace on the 450. His stamina is shot one week into the season which isn't surprising when you hire a bicycle rider to train you for SX.

Christ I could train RV to win races. Here, you see this bike? Ride it as fast as you possibly can. Go get em Ryan.

If you have a 55+ inch TV and they split screen it, you still have a lot of TV left to watch the one you want. Don't make this difficult. Sheesh.

Where are the Yamaha engineer haters now? Brayton ( and his bike) looked awful smooth.

We had all the brands turning basically the same laps. It's not the arrow.
