Nationals

Would LOVE to see Tomac run this series down and give the usual suspects a fight

Set them DVRs bitches - NBC and NBCSN

Should be a good season. Roczen, Barcia, Wilson all will do well I think. I think Dungeys consistency will give him a championship though.

Is Stewart racing?

Dungey is Cap't Consistent and excels in the 2nd Moto - Here is the breakdown of the racers and teams and yes, Stewie is running

Tomac is banged up so, I don't think he will be a threat for the championship. Dungey, Stewart and Roczen will be the big three. If Reed is healthy, he will ruffle some feathers. Metcalf will be in the top 5 with Milsaps.

I love Mettie but he has been out for a while - He make get up there once in a while but Canada MX is not like the US - He was lucky RV decided to take the summer off and go blow doobies in Havesu

Roman, punt this clown for me:

"Blake Wharton (18th overall in 2013) – Wharton is still recovering from a knee injury suffered in supercross. He will not contest the Lucas Oil Pro Motocross Championship, and will instead try his hand in AMA Supermoto"

The tim it took you to type that, you could have also typed "Google"

NBC and NBCSN will carry all (12) rounds of Moto 2 - Chanel depends on your provider - MAVTV will carry all (12) rounds of Moto 1 - MAVTV is owned by Lucas Oil and barry ANY provider carries it

NBC as in ch 5 regular TV? that would be cool, but you didn't address my question, and I did search a little, but I cant find a "schedule" that says what time and channel any of the races would air... I should have bought a ticket and fly out to see it live at GH

I was looking too - Monster did that for SX and seeing as Lucas Oil owns MAVTV, I doubt they would broadcast it on the net as they want providers to pick up the network - Nothing on RacerTV either

Anybody go to any of the nationals? Anybody planning to go to Red Bud? Might make for a cool group ride.

Indeed and the riders - Webb gets punted by the luckiest Honda rider ever in SX East, gets up, restarts the bike, chases him down and passes him - AWESOME

So ive been working in Oklahoma City this week and as I walked thru the airport a couple hours ago im pretty sure I saw Bug's favorite Jesus loving ginger getting on a flight to Denver. I was goi g to go give him some pointers on how to beat the KTM boys this weekend but lets face it, KTM with Roczen and Dungey are just going to run the table this summer so there really isnt any point.

To make things even better, im now having a beer (PBR of course) at the Red Bud Bar. Which only slightly makes up for my flight being delayed 2hrs so far.
