I like the new (old) format, though I wish they only brought two out of the LCQ or even one if possible. Really make it do or die.
I think you do hear names you might not normally hear this year, with more races. They seem to focus more on the transfer spots imo in terms of camera and announcer work.

I like the semi's,its more racing and can be great racing even if it isnt the top guys doing it. + All the guys out there have sponsors of one kind or another and it gives them more chances to get on camera.

I dont really like how the take outs are getting more and more blatant,if a guy needs a spot its too easy to take a guy down and continue on fat and happy. Its not real racing and the more that guys see they can get away with it the more they will do it.

I guess its good for the show.

I don't think its like any other team sport. The riders are pretty much on their own for training.

The Red Bull deal also limits his options, just like JS.

Unless Roger goes back to Suzuki.....

I see the Suzuki program going the way of the Yamaha deal, with RC in a leadership spot of some sort and increased outside (Dodge) funding.


They don't have HRC or Monster money.


DeCoster is off the market through 2016.

So what's the skinny on why Dungey would depart the team? He worked with Decoster at Suzuki, and then Decoster brought him to KTM. I don't read into how Decoster could be a reason, unless there is more to the story.

The suspension? It's not like last season where he blew out the air shock in the first race. He's sitting in 4th place and posed to do quite well in the rest of the series.

Is his contract up at the end of this year?
-Scott

Dungey is contracted through 2015.

Almost. Didn't you see Anderson passing Wilson on the last lap?

Anybody notice Wilson and Anderson were faster in qualifying than any 450s? My buddy said Seeley ran fastest lap last weekend too? Tight tracks!

Assuming they Suzuki/Dodge stay in business...both of them!

Chevy Trucks, Hot Wheels, Muscle Milk, Makita, Monster, Red Bull, Toyota, Chesterfield, Peak, I remember when Pat Moroney and Rex Staten rode (briefly) for PDQ, heard the owner of PDQ ended up on the wrong side of a coke deal gone bad and that was the end of PDQ...

You'd have to think the bigger the company the smaller change a MX team is.

Who's next Google? Apple? Bud? Couldn't believe when I went to AX in November and one of the kids had Pabst graphics all over his bike and even a banner proclaiming their support.

Maybe a Team Schlitz or Maximus Super is in order!
