MXGP - 3/1 - Set Your DVR Bitches

And so it begins - Vilpo vs Caroli - The Best of the best going head to head - Caroli was too chicken shit to leave GPs for Vilpo said "Fuck You Bucky, I'll come to you..........its on"

Cannot fuckin wait to see the (2) best in the world (at present) battle each other.

Sunday, 3/1 - CBSSN is carrying the GPs this year

Is Baburshev still on Honda?

The race is actually Saturday in Qatar. It is on CBSSN at midnight and 1am on Saturday night/Sunday morning.

CBS Sports Network is also going to televise EnduroCross this year.

Your DVR will read it as 3/1 for recording purpose - Just wanted to let all know to record

I hope he does - AC has run away with it for years and it has been snooze-a-pan-looza to watch.

Herlings is fun to watch in MX2 - Esp when he gets a bad start and just goes to work

It is going to be tough for RV. I think going somewhere completely new adds an element that takes time to overcome.

AC is just as talented as RV. If Herlings was in MX1, I might put my money on him. That kid is blazing fast. I'm planning on going to Glen Helen in September to see this in person.

Remember his MXdN Ride of 2007? - Villopoto became the first rider in history to win the overalls in both motos on his 250 against 450s - Had never ridden the track and DESTROYED the field - Take that talent, what he learned in AMA and from Baker and he will be on the Box quite a bit, I am betting

He will be on the box most weekends but, winning the championship will be tough. I think he can do it but, it will be tough. I'm pulling for him.

They are showing live practice times at the link below. So far, Herlings has been as fast as the big bikes.

RV finished 7th fastest in the second session. He ran a 1:48.9. The fastest was 1:48.2. Haven't seen anyone string a few laps in a row at that pace. RV ran 3 laps of 1:50.xxx in a row.

If he approaches it the way he did AMA, he never went Full Monty in practice (outdoors) and was always 5, 6, 7 type - I just want him on the Box to show AC it will not be a cake walk this season

He has a good shot at getting on the box. This track was new last season so, these guys don't have much more experience than he does on this track.

Loved seeing Husky this weekend - Typical RV start to a season - Long road ahead and even though he stumbled in M1, looked where he clawed his way back to - Helluvah ride

Bummed about Tommy Searle - Now that he has a good ride under him, really want to see what he can do - Love that guy and I think he tapped Diana Dahlgren

I thought RV did ok. His finishes were not completely unexpected. He said that he needs to work on suspension set up and at some point in the second race, he lost his rear brake. I was hoping teaming with Rattray would give him more insight into setup but by the looks of Rattray's finishes his setup is off as well.

He rides with a very stiff rear and uses it to steer - MXGP is soooo sandy that he is going to have to change things up a bit

He always starts slow - Hell, after Round 3 in SX last year, people were going to write him off...........then he took the championship

That and he had no rear brake in M2 in Qutar

they did, rumor has it he got double what he would make in the states for sx and mx and bug, you jumped the gun on the predictions, RV got his ass handed to him, you should have known how fast the euros are as youve been watching gps for a few years. RV has to dump the us suspension and go softer, his bike looked like shit as hes used to groomed us tracks and not the cratered out freeways of the gps. im more excited for the gps than the us nationals and sx especially now that Roczen choked more htan michael Hutchins and david carradine did while jerking off in hotels with rope nooses around their necks trying to get that special autoerosia NUT! WOw i havent posted on here in 6 months! im Back muthafuckers!

Dude, did you watch Moto 1? - He stahled on the line and hit the floor twice and still came back and finished 6th I think - Moto 2 he had no rear brake so yeah, not a good day for him

He always starts slow, in MX and SX and the world counts him out - GPs are a whole different animal then say Washsougal or even Reb Bud where the ruts are almost as big as Tnats asshole after a Sat Night at the Bijou
