The KTM Red Bull team looks like they're going to hog a lot of podium spots this year. Roczen and Dungey look like they're riding a different pace than the others.

I expect JS7 will pick up the pace. RV and a fully healthy CR would make it interesting, also.

edit... I hope Martin can keep it up all the way to the title.

edit pt2... Trey was looking good too, it'll be great if he gets faster and stays healthy.

I am shocked at how much Martin is winning by, there are plenty of fast guys out there who just don't seem to have anything for him right now.

Dungey is doing what he does well, always finishing on the podium and winning when he can.

Roczen is riding really well, I hope some of these other guys and catch up and battle with the KTM's for wins.

Kudo's go out to him, but I wouldn't have the balls.


As for the Nationals, I cant take Barcia seriously anymore. He's way over hyped as usual and I just don't think he has what it takes to win.

brand new 600 seat bleachers. Unadilla is to MX what Augusta is to golf.

Budds Creek is real nice. They can be Pebble Beach. But Pebble Beach ain't the Masters.

Yes he is. But the comment was he gets hyped like he's a winning rider which he is not.

Honda is in a pickle, they have two very fast riders, and then if Tomac ever gets healthy he may be even faster but they don't have a rider that can win often. And nothing really better in the 250's.

But for some reason it is always fun to root for a rider that seems to be almost there but somehow rarely wins.

I don't know. I don't catch much motocross outside of the USA. What i'm trying to say is that I've never seen him hunt anybody down for a win in the 450 class. All I ever see from him is good starts, lead a few laps, take a back seat to the 3 to however many riders pass him. I expect a few wins here and there, but its not happening.
