Thought I would start an outdoor season thread, I did affix the spoiler tag.

Read on Cyclenews where Chad Reed will race the series, but no James "Bubba" Stewart. Seems Bubba will take a break and hit the occasional outdoor race but not the whole series.

As a lot of you are aware, I'm picking Villopoto to be the man to beat this year if he stays healthy. In the 250 series I can't decide, but I think Pourcel/Stroupe/Dungey will be the guys to watch.

Allright!
I'm psyched for the outdoors. A little dissapointed that Stewart's not racing but that should make things better for Villopoto. I'd obviously like to see the two go head to head but Villo's still
got some time to learn the 450.
What if Villopoto does become good enough to challenge Stewart in the future. Could Stewart be throwing away his shot at an easier road to the title this year? If he wants to become the GOAT
then now is the time to pad his resume.
Is Dungey and Lawrence running the 450's as well?

I just checked the schedule and the 450 race will be on Speed at 9pm EST
Saturday night
I don't know when they are going to show the lites

ashame stewart is not running the whole season but at least that'll make it more interesting & less predictable. i would love to see villapoto beat reed. i think it'll be between these 2 for the most part.
dungey will be running the lites class again not sure about tool boy. he has a suspension to get thru first.

Yeeeeaaaahhhhh!!!!!!
Great race is you're a Villopoto fan.
The last 2 years I've been enjoying MX and SX more than road racing.
The AMA is pretty much dead and MotoGP has become a series for
European 250 riders riding uninspiring bikes. This is racing where the bikes
can still rip your arms out of your sockets.

Glen Helen is such a great track to watch. I remember as a little kid watching
MX on Wide World of Sports and seeing the those huge hills and realizing that
you have to be pretty bad ass to ride there.

Did anyone catch Alessi's comments on the podium without cracking up?
He's taken the Chad Reed approach to this season. Don't ride your fastest and
hope Villopoto crashes a lot because consistency will win a title.
Has he already thrown in the towel on beating Villopoto head to head.
Villopoto is a lot like Stewart where he's sometimes too fast and prone to
crashing. Alessi knows this so his approach is to get the holeshot and get way
ahead, (like he did today) and hope Villo crashes trying to make his way through
the field.
As much as I like watching the Villopoto/Rossi/Stewart water through a siv trick,
it would be cool to see Villo start getting holeshots so that he would utterly devestate
Alessi's morale.

I didn't see Dungey out there but I did see "Tool boy" in the lineup.
I didn't pay attention to how he did but I'm pretty sure it was out of the top 10.
What an enigma that kid is. Runs 2nd at Daytona on a 450 and then dissapears.

MX is for men in 19 year old bodies.

There is no other motorsport where you need so much talent, strength, stamina, and balls on the planet!


Chad Reed sucks.

Fuck you're right but what should I do?
Villopoto's out for the season and I gotta root for someone to beat Alessi and he's
probabaly the only one that can.

Shit shit shit shit shit shit, I don't know if I can do this but here I go

Chad Reed Rules!
Go Chad Reed!


Did you see the Amazon chick asking Villopoto who he's going to root for now that he's
out.
With a great big beaming smile he said " yeah Chad Reed"

Now you suck, just like Chad Reed.

Sucks to hear about Villopoto. But now I don't like him either. How can anybody root for a person who has no heart or character?

Go Alessi. & Go Grant.

I'm not worried about Chad anyway, he's not man enough to run MX and win. He only likes smooth tracks in SX, and there he's second best. In MX he can't bee what were armatures just a few years ago.


Johnny, go watch that Mike Tyson Reed moment again. That should clear your mind.

CHAD REED SUCKS!!!
