Wilson might race on a 450 during the east coast rounds. It's been pretty common lately for west coast 250 riders to do that.

I can't remember if it was the 8th lap where Stewart began jumping the quad. Still, it could of been a different outcome if Stewart had a better start.

This is why they all line up and race. All you have to do is get to the finish line before anyone else. There is no trophy for having the fastest lap times.
Villipoto is a lot harder to pass than just about anyone else out there.

Sort of like Brayton running down Dungey and waking him up, Dungey then ran off from Brayton.

I missed this. It will be interesting to see how he does on the 450 in SX. May be able to mix up the points scramble some. The hunt for 2nd place in the championship is going to get interesting. I think Villipoto has the championship wrapped up.

if deano isnt in serious title contention i bet he does run 450s during the east.

I still think Wilson and malcom stewart are just physically too large for the 250. They are giving up a ton of weight to the tiny kids like webb.

More so than any other sport I think SX results are far more affected by injuries and there still are plenty of races, and giant jumps, and ruts to catch a boot and tear an ACL

Couldnt agree more. Villipoto has a very good chance of winning this year. A big surprise to me has been Reed..

That's because the 250s are easier to ride, plus all the top 250 riders have big bore kits in them.

I would bet he does and I would also bet that he is competitive.

4 races into a 16 race season.

How did the Kansas City Chiefs do after that 9-0 start?
