Eslick at Laguna...

Did anyone else catch the Superstock or Forumula Extreme races? I can't remember which one it was but HOLY SHIT that boy can back the bike into a turn. I mean yeah Rossi and Hayden do it all the time but this kid had tire just rolling off the rear tire going into the corner around the outside of someone. That's was just awesome to watch, and he did it multiple times that's some impressive bike control.

He crashed in the same race. At least it wasn't the corner he was sliding it in. That was real cool to watch

Formula Extreme showed amazing control. During one slide is when he started blowing blue smoke. Then the next corner shot the flames for a good four seconds. Then he took himself out of the race - parked it on the tires in the run-off. That should have been Tuesday's race shown on Speed. I wish I would have kept in on the DVR.


What do the internet and Channel 11 have in common? They are both a window to the world; put it out there and do not be surprised who will see it.

That kid can ride, no question. I was at infineon this May when he placed third for FX, what an awesome display of his riding skills. He'll be one to watch next year for sure. He Races for Matsushima Performance, which is owned by super-tuner, Grant Matsushima. Grant used to wrench for Nicky Hayden AND was a top wrench at Yoshimura for a while too. When you've got a solid bike with super mechanics behind you, you can 'ride it like you stole it' you know?

Flattrack gentlemen, flattrack (see avatar)...where do you think Hayden learned the same technique (look at Hayden's back brake compared to the other riders, it's like twice the size)
