Prophetic words.
I didn't expect that. Rare mistake by Tomac. Because of his poor performance earlier in the year he was forced to be perfect. Im not buying the bullshit that the pressure got to him. He just had an unfortunate washout. Everybody has one. If the bike hadn't stalled we would be looking at an opposite outcome. Im surprised that with todays technology they don't put tiny starters in bikes. The added weight could be compensated for.
Championship has flipped and I can't see Dungey losing with a 9 point lead.

that was hard to watch. All over the place all night.

Bike sounded really off in the main. But he was out of sync all night.

that was a very boring track, combined with the absolute worst track conditions of the season, something like this was inevitable.

I don't get the rare mistake part, before Tomac's run of wins he wasn't ever consistently contending for the win. I don't know about the pressure thing honestly, I've never been in that position, Carmichael spoke about the weight of the red plate, at first I was like you, sounds like commentator speak to fill space. But when Tomac couldn't pass his teammate, that seemed very odd. He also made another mistake, went off the track and lost all kinds of ground. Did his bike suffer an issue? That would explain it after his wash out. But Tomac didnít look like the attacking aggressive rider we saw last week. What changed?

Regarding Marvin Moosecan, I don't know if he moved out of way or made mistake, but Ryan was on his ass whilst his mechanic wrote, you need to win! On his pit board. Moot point, but I don't think Marvin pulling out of that rut looked like a conventional conceding of position.

I still think Tomac has a chance. With Chad ISIS on the track, let's face it, bombs may go off.

Forgot to add, chasing Tomac down for a soundbite as he finished the race was chickenshit by reporter.

Marvin let him by, he took a line around that corner that he had not taken all day... Dungey has a lot of friends on the track (chad not being one), and I would not be surprised if someone offers him another favor, should he need it in the final.
