I think Bubba has made the competition step up to his level, unfortunately for Bubba I don't think he can ride at that level during a whole race. Bubba isn't a spring chicken, and it's possible some of those bad off's are catching up to him?

Reed has some serious injuries. Could be the end of his career which will make some of you guys happy no doubt. Who is going to step up and ride the rest of the season for 22?

From Reed's Twitter: "Well, I spent the day in the hospital yesterday here's the damage: 2 broken ribs, broken spinous T6. Torn ACL and fractured tib fib,"

yep its over for Chad - many will rejoice LOL.....damn now we have no one to annoy you biatchs hehe

JK I just used bubba for the hell of it - but being he had his downs (and will continue to do so) naturally over there many would be behind him but as we see it's all going by him, the others like Vilo Dungey and even still Chad are more focussed, fitter hence faster.

MA your right who's going to be on 22 ?!

Nobody sane who follows this sport is happy seeing injured riders, so you Aussies can stop your pity party. Reed was a liability to the factories not for his riding but for his childish antics. Factories dislike problematic relationships. As far as Bubba, he was crashing before this year, but they still wanted him because he wouldn't resort to pathetic desperation on the playing field. Where Bubba screwed up was buying into the MTV reality show bullshit. Though it was at least something to do while recovering from injuries.



I think Reed called it himself in his last podium interview. He admitted that speeding up the pace and challenging for a win was not typical of him. (If you recorded it, go back and listen to him again.) Reed is fast but not the fastest of the real leaders. His success has come from attrition! He lost sight of this and tried to challenge the boys that are simply more talented. I'll give him at least some kudos for trying to win as oppose to hanging out waiting for others to crash or have injuries. However, he rode above his head, hence his big crash.



This is why people respected Bubba when he was crashing while still being undeniably the fastest guy out there. While he wasn't crashing he was thrilling people and showing us what can be done on a dirtbike. I think what is happening with him is he has tried to balance fast with finishing. Its taken him out of his zone. Perhaps the explanation is, he is probably crashing because he is not pushing? I've been saying this several times now, he is crashing but without being the fastest (unlike before when he was crashing while being the fastest). How many of us said, 'man, if this guy could just slow down a bit he would be unstoppable.' Well, he has slowed down, but is still crashing. Something doesn't look right. He's getting shitting starts and isn't charging up the field anymore like before.



I don't think the other guys have raised their game. I just think Stewart slowed down. Villopoto is more confident and has improved his racecraft. Though he doesn't look to be as raw fast as the old Stewart was, he is close to being as fast with a hell of a lot more consistency.

They must send a hollywood reworked version of AMA SX to us here in OZ because it doesn't resemble anything like what you have said in your post. Where can we down load the original version?

Not a fan of Reed, but dont like seeing anyone get hurt, especially career ending, which this may very well be. , You have to be one tough motherfucker to stand up on your own and try and shake it off with those kind of injuries.

Let the fools believe whatever allows them to sleep well at night. I dont even know what the fuck they are on about with this boxing shit. Evander Holyfield was the victim of Mike the "pathetic desperate" American. Is bubba missing part of his ear, did Chad bite him? Since we are referencing boxing what about Muhammad Ali. Yes a black American, possibly the greatest boxer ever, felt compelled to change to a Muslim name and denounced his own corrupt war mongering American government. Did Chad imprison him? No, "pathetic desperate" Americans did since he refused to go kill Asians.



Back to reality, in a few weeks Reed "the liability" managed to become the top Honda team/rider in 2011. Thats against all the factory teams. How the fuck he manage that? At present it could be argued he has built the top team out there. Full Honda factory backing is that a "problematic relationship"? The famous engineer Mike Gosselaar of RC GOAT fame who was previously with mr nice guy Dungey (praise the man above) but signed on as technical director with team twotwo this year because he must like working with mr "childish antics". In fact the whole team is the best of the best and they are apparently very loyal to Reed. Seams he must be a real generous childish arsehole.



How the fuck did Reed get up from that crash with those injuries? 12 months out with a wife and son Tate that might be it for his riding days, I hope not. Matt Moss just finsihed up 250 on the East, hoprefully he gets the twotwo ride on the west. Michael Burn is good friends with Chad but he's injured as well.
