Yeah but he will always be a force if he can stay healthy

I was shocked by Reed on Green as he blasted the KX in 2010 and said it was impossible to ride and Vilpo showed him he was wrong - I would love to see the elder statesmen have some fight for the pack - Same for Bubs as he will push RV in SX the way RD did in MX

I am just happy for racing again and a normal racing schedule on TV - Not like MX where one Moto was on this channel and the other on this channel - That and the SXOL race day coverage is great - I love watching practice and qual and how can you not love the Hollywood Stuntman Jim Holley?

I DVR That shit and wait an hour or so and then watch so I can zip through the commercials - I am more excited about Practice and Qual at 4p

I plan to go to Indy and I'll definately go to the Daytona round if I end up in Fla. during bike week...that remains to be seen.

I was at the race in Las Vegas in October and until he crashed, Vilipoto was definately the class of the field. Bubba surprised me...I haven't seen him as focused and ready for years. The talent has always been there...maybe he's finally matured enough and or figured out how to apply it. If so, he will be a factor in every round and will be tough to beat.
The old dogs (Bubba, Reed, etc...) vs. the young guns (Vilipoto, Canard, Dungey, Milsaps etc... and the class of '14 stepping up to 450's) should make for a very interesting SX season!
If it pans out that way it will certainly make passing the time of this "real" winter a tad more bearable.

If I do, it will probably be Indy. I might go to the Arenacross in Milwaukee as we'll.

Take care and ride safe!

Ford Field - Detroit - 1st Year - Canada (Windsor) is right there and Top 5 Best Strip Clubs in the world - Reminiscent of the old Pontiac Silverdome races with Dragon backs and tracks up into the stands - 4 hr straight shot east on 94

A Rookie winner with 1st and 2nd mounted on KTM...JEB's hiring of Roger "D" ("The Man") are paying big dividends to KTM America! I bet they're both ecstatic...PLUS...Vilipoto AND Bubba crash!?!?!?!? They both looked soooooo good before their mis haps..............Anybody know if Bubba got hurt?


PS...They were showing photos sent in by fans between races and someone had an old Husky in one of the photos and Ralph Shaheen said maybe we'll see a Husky team next year................That would be fantastic!

And Jesse A taking the 250 Main Win? - KTM is becoming the Aprilla (Think WSBK) of SX/MX with the type of Support they are giving the series - Due largely in part to Roger D saying "I need a brand new 450" and Dungey winning on it a few years back

Fuuck Ktm! They got lucky! Go Green for now till Husky gets a team and gets back to there winning ways and Tyrone got lucky that he got bucked off after the whoops section, or he would of been in a world of Paine. That was a nasty get off

Amsoil will have a small display at Supercross , They asked me if I would run it for St. Louis.
So I guess I'm going to be there.

If any one from CLSB makes the trip, stop by and enter to win an EBR 1190RX

I finally got the chance to watch another round this last Saturday. Reed looked like it was 5 years ago! I thought sure Bubba was going to challenge for the podium...He WAS having a great night until he crashed (who'da thunk it?) and Vilipoto looked like he wasn't quite up to snuff...The one thing I gather from the points and what I saw Saturday is this season is full of surprises and the most competitive season in a while!

Vilpo is all about the rear steer and the hard packed non tacky dirt of SoCal does not lend well to his style - Once they head East, i would expect to see him back to dominating fashion - Even when he is "off" he is still pulling podiums

Love seeing Reed and Roc doing well - Dung has to feel like a schmuck with Roc stepping in and over him in results during his freshman season on the 450
