I kind of let it go and havn't watched a lites race for a few weeks now.
So what's at stake? Easrt meets West right? Who's the players I should be keeping an eye on?
I need a reason to be interested.

I havn't checked the tv schedule yet. Anyone got a heads up on that?

Big mistake bro, its been real good.

Hey, BTW, Speed showed the SX Salt Lake and my DVR picked it up. Just watched it this morning. Holy Shit batman! Great race, but Jaes was clearly just chillin until he turned it up.

Ralph Shitheen was all over the Chistom incident. He wouldn't let it go. But I don't see the problem, it wasn't intentional. If it was, why would he have also looked like he tried to take out James first? No way, it was just a mistake. Funny thing too, if you listen to the commentary, you will hear them talking about how lap riders are taken by surprise by the outright closing speed by the two leaders. Then Ralph turn on Chistom and starts talking about how it was a bad move. Fuck this guy. Chistom was NOT trying to take out anyody but get the hell out of the way. Chad and James split him and he had no where to go! The black flag was bogus, and Chad's comments where bullshit.


Anyway, it was a good race, very exciting! Oh, and Chad standing up James twice was shady. I hope these clowns don't cite the Chistom incident as the make or break of the season. Chad is 2nd fastest, period.

i finally was able to watch the salt lake & las vegas rounds. jumkie i have to disagree with ya on the chisolm debacle. that was a deliberate attemt to slow up reed. the outcome woulda been the same but i think the team boss put him up to it. the guy has a reputation aparently. now what reed did in vegas was just low in my oppinion. the only way he could win the title was to knock stewart down and he tried but failed. i hope reed does the outdoor this season. great ride by villopotto... 2 in a row. he'll be stonger in the out doors & next sx season. a threeman instead of 2 me hopes.

I don't follow dirt racing too much... but does the bike play a huge role in the outcome of a race? I mean, I understand that equipment plays a big role in what a rider is able to achieve.... but it just seems like with Moto Cross and Super Cross racing, there's basically only 2 riders who are capable of winning, 1 rider reallly if not for DNF's.

Not really. Kawasaki's are not the best bikes in the world, but Stewart made them the bike to have. Without Villapoto, they would be languishing like they are in the rest of the championships around the world.

Stewart switches from the Kawasaki to a privateer Yamaha and takes the title. Reed leaves that privateer Yamaha to Suzuki and wins races and challenges for the title. Carmichael left Honda to Suzuki and continued his domination. Jeremy McGrath won on Yamaha's, Honda's, Suzuki's, and Kawasaki's, as well as podiumed a KTM.

There is a huge difference in Factory prepared MX bikes versus a customer or aftermarket built bike. I had the oppurtunity to ride a factory prepped Yamaha many years ago and that bike was just plain awesome, however, only a select few riders in the world would be able to contain the power and get around the track consistently.
One comment about the Vegas race, Reed's swipe at Stewart reminded me of Michael Schumacher's attempt in the final F1 race of that year(can't recall the year). It wasn't very professional, but sometimes you do dumb things out of desperation. Hopefully Reed will see that is was a boneheaded move and apologize to Stewart if he hasn't already done so.

On to the Outdoor season. Go Villopoto!

WOW! I just saw Vegas race. Amazing. I was on the edge the whole time.

CONGRATS TO JAMES STEWART!!!

Ok, on the the drama. Reed made a move on Stewart that he should have been immediately black flagged for. If the move Chisolm did was debatable but warranted a black flag, then Reed's move (in which he later admitted was cheap) should have warranted an immediate suspension as well.


I lost all respect for Reed, (and this after I had given him some during the season). We are all sitting here with James as the champ, but a lessor rider would have easily gone down with that blatant attempt to intentionally punt Stewart.

Ok, if its debatable, then what's your take on Reeds move?--which was clearly worse than Chisolm (who I still think was trying to get out of the way since he almost took out James). Why didn't Reed get a black flag?


Ok, thin brings me to the cowardly way the commentators, all three of them (Shitheen, Carmichael, & Emig), as well as Bates all cowarded to call Reed's move shameful. They refused to call it out for what it was, yet last week Shitheen wouldn't shut up about Chisolm but here he couldn't manage to say it was a shameful move. Emig literally said he wouldn't comment, and by doing so (pleading the 5th style) told everybody what he thought) but didn't have the balls to be explicit. And Carmichael was just cowardly silent. If that wasn't enough, Bates kept trying to say it was just a pass "that could have been worse" to imply that it was acceptable. Fucking double standard cowards! Fuck them all.


Reed lost more than the championship, he lost respect and graciousness.

Jumkie...I think Stewart showed a lot of poise in the post race interview. Kid is a class act, and yet another example of East Coast pull baby!!!!

You mention Carmichael not saying anything about the pass during the race, in his defense he's never really been one to do a lot of talking off the track, and he was there as a guest announcer, so I wasn't shocked nothing was said.

On a side note, I knew some how or some way that Damon Bradshaw would be brought up during this race and I was right. Damn It, every time that day gets brought up I get pissed!

Yes, James showed what its like to be a champion. UNLIKE Reed!


Ok, maybe Ricky gets a pass, though if you recall his previous race guest commentating, he did talk about the bad blood brewing when James and Chad had words. But ok, lets give him a pass.


Bradshaw? Please explain.
