2013 SX - Sat 1/5 @ 8:30p on Speed

Check out Vurbmoto for a few vids to get you into the spirit - I like the RV vs JS Vid and the DRAMATIC differences in personalities - One rolls up in a pick up and one in a Motorhome - One talks himself up while the other in humble

www.vurbmoto.com

Also, new this season, live streaming of practice on Race day - Check it out

The DVR is all ready to go. I'm going to Phoenix for the SX race on the 12th and for a little golf. Can't wait.

Take care and ride safe,

Did you see where TLD has a new "7" line of Clothing for him?

He was fast on it in MX but as always, the only competition Bubba has is himself - Win or Bin and he seems to be binning more lately - I also think RV2 has his number now and knows how to beat him

So you are saying he will not crash like he did on the SM Yami or the JGR Yami or like he did on the Zuk in MX? - He won those (2) rounds in MX because RV and CR were not racing and he had RD to contend with - When he has to fight to catch Reed and RV (who both are in his head) he rides OVER his head and crashes

Trust me, I would love nothing more than to see him NOT crash and make this an amazing season of battles but I don't believe it is the bike in this case.....

Ha - JS will NOT Holeshot as he never does - I'll give that to Alessi all day all day - He will get a P5 start to L1 and fight to get up to RV, RD & Reed with a sprinkle of others as well - This is race BTW, he will win in Qual as he always does due to the fact that he is not facing the whole field for (20) laps

Watched the whole thing - Pretty cool actually - Kinda choppy in spots for me and audio not syncing with Vid and for fucks sake, when riders are on track, get the camera out of the booth and off the FMX clowns (they are talented though)

Good racing so far.
RC's Description of Throtttle control over the triples made me laugh.

Not sure what was happening with Reed. He seemed to be just riding around. It is going to be a good year. As long as RV isn't really hurt, I still have my money on him.

I'm at Phoenix next weekend. Can't wait.

Hearing RV is fine (other than pride) but JS might have really fucked up his ACL like RV did at the end of last season - Would love to see this footage - Poor Suz - Once again Davi has to step up for the Mfg

The other factory Suzuki team is RCH and Hill got hurt yesterday. I don't know if he is expected back or not. If JS is out, I wounder if Suzuki will give factory support to the Rock Star team and Milsaps or will they bring someone in. Maybe Ryan Sipes from the Rock Star 250 squad. They could also bring someone from the Rock Star 250 East team like Blake Wharton to run the west and see if JS heals by the time the east rounds begin.

I see where you are going with it but not sure if BW would even be a good fit - He has struggled in the 250 for a while now with consistency - His Mom is hot tho so maybe

Sucks about Hill - He JUST got healthy and they passed on Chiz (who had faster times than Hill) and went with Hill due to the amount of $ Hart had into him

Maybe Suzuki will give Milsaps more support. That's what Honda did with Reed two years ago when Canard got hurt.

I would love to see it - I was happy to see that Brayton got a ride too - He kind of got the shaft from Honda after the outdoors, IMHO

I was out of my seat bouncing around watching Millsaps and Canard on that last lap. Everyone with a mic in their mouth was already telling their Canard comeback story while not even noticing Millsaps catching up and getting ready to make the pass. It's like listening to three guys in their living room with this crew sometimes.

I thought Davi was just going to get his holeshot and fade to 5-6th. Could not be happier with the out come of this race. Three likeable guys on the podium. I guess God likes Canard more than Dungey though. God definitely taught Bam Bam not to mess with either of his boys.

I think this is the end of Reed. I have thought this since last year. I think that was his last ditch effort to win another one. In his mind he has already retired. He'll call it quits at the end of this year.

I thought it was cool as well.
RV suprised me with his crashes.
What happened to BamBamm at the end? did he just loose it?
maybe fitness? 450 races are a bunch longer then the 250 races.

It's only the 1st race of the season Not sure I would count 22 (or anyone else)
out.

ET was riding awesome. Can't wait to see him on the 4fiddys when the time comes.

Bam Bam hit a false N going into the whoops and lost power which put him down

I am gauging my Reed comment on his press comments, timed practices, heat race and main - He just seemed like he had no fire under him - Look at his Team......Lars, Goose, etc etc - He spent some $$ to get them and IMHO, is riding this year for sponsors to build his brand and bring new riders up - I just hope better for him then L&MC (about Broke) and JWR - I think he has his eyes on what RC is doing and likes it - He has had his time and I think is now building the legacy

+1

he gave it everything he had last year trying to hang with Villipoto and ended up crashing his brains out.

Ha - Find me one person that predicted Milsaps? - Bubba did set the fastest Practice time and I think Alessi did take the Holie in his heat race

I was so stoked for Canard and Davi
