I've been playing a lot of catch-up on SX/MX. I can't believe I sat out last year!

What I have read and seen still makes Jason Lawrence come across as a high school bully. According to a speedtv.com report on Dungey ditching his former clothing sponsor, Lawrence sat behind the Suzuki rider before practice and questioned his sexuality. Hopefully that's just a rumor.

Go Reed! I don't care if it's the bike, Reed, or Stewart reigning in his speed to keep from crashing, just keep it coming guys! [img]style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/biggrin.gif[/img]

Jason Lawrence is a punk.............back in around 2000/ 2002 time he used to play MCM2 online, l dunno whether any of you guys ever played it. It was played online on the MSN gaming zone, had a hardcore set of guys of around 400 at its peak, fantastic game back then. Anyway he used to play it and he came across as a gobby arrogant prick then, dunno how old he is now but he must have been around 11 or 12 at that time .......he was quick though.

I know contact is more a part of sx/mx than road racing, but am I the only one who thinks the Pro Circuit riders, at least on the west coast, ride a little rougher than the average lites racer?

So far this year, whenever Weimer catches up to another rider, he seems to begin diving into the turn, altering his line, in an attempt to hit the leading rider and make a pass. Jake seems to do it from much farther behind than others (e.g. Dungey's failed pass attempt at San Francisco). I haven't noticed this from other racers, although there was an incident at Anaheim I between a KTM and a Honda. Jake didn't do any of that at San Francisco, however, he was never behind anybody! [img]style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/ohmy.gif[/img] Great job!

Also, Morais, Weimer's teammate, pushed into a rider while in the air, causing his rival to land against the tough blocks and ride off the track.

Do Pro Circuit Kawasaki riders have a history of tough racing?

I love the lites class, BTW.

Speedchannel sucks once again.
For some reason they are going to show today's race of the San Diego SX Lites at 11 pm but not show the Supercross race until next saturday where they will also play the supercross race from that day which I think is Atlanta.
So for some reason we have to wait a week to see San Diego and only a few hours to see Atlanta.
That makes no sense whatsoever. I don't care if they don't play a race live but at least show it in a timely manner with maybe a consistent schedule week to week.
I can't complain about the Supercross schedule though. They race almost every weekend.
This is a very nice diversion to roadracings offseason.

Agree, Speed sucks Greg White's vagina, but hate to tell you, SX San Diego was on channel 2 at 9am Sunday morning. I have it Tvod. Would you like to know who won? Let me give you a clue, this guy would have been on a perfect season this year had it not been for somebody crossing tires with him in Anaheim I.

Just watched San Diego and Atlanta.
It's time for Stewart and try a page from Rossi's book and start creating antics after his race wins.
As wildly popular as he is he's going to start to turn fans away if he keeps winning races by 11 seconds.
Hey it's not his fault he's so fast but he's got to make it at least a bit interesting or it's going to become like Superbike the last few years.
I feel bad for Chad Reed each week on the podium when the Amazonian microphone chick tells him "hey you just got your ass handed to you again this week when yesterday you said you found some things that would make you faster and be able to compete with Stewart. What happened? and how are you not going to get your ass handed to you next week as well?"
I want Chad to just blurt out " Bitch, He's just faster than me and the rest of the world. I'm never going to beat him unless he crashes. You fucking know that and so does the rest of the world so why don't you just say Hey Chad great race. Any Thoughts?"
To Chad's credit he's pretty honest and he has a lot to say.
How bout Villopoto. Someone's got to pull the kid aside and tell him that the little bit we get to hear from him is on the podium and therefore he might want to actually talk so we can form an opinion of his personality. I swear each week he tries to break his previous record of saying the fewest words before he pimps his team and sponsors.
This week was the greatest." Yeah it's really great to get on the podium a few times this year. I would like to thank........."
Comon kid. Talk a bit about the race and your thoughts as well.
