Supercross (Motocross too)

28 Jan 2011 18:21

Ok,

The 2011 Supercross season is shaping up to be very, very good. There are 5 guys who can win the series and so far, the racing has been outstanding.

Did anybody see the main at Dodger stadium? The first 15 laps were about as good as it gets.... just awesome.

So, who is a fan and who do you think wins the championship this year?

Stewart. But Villapoto will make him work for it.

Stewart seems a bit more patient this year. I'm surprised how fast Villapoto is given his leg is not 100%.

Great racing so far...

Edit: Main Event at Dodger Stadium, starts at 19:24. Worth a watch..

I dunno. Stewart looks different this year. Almost conservative:D

What about Canard?.... dude is going well. He had a pretty hard get-off in his heat race Saturday and still was in the mix. If he gets a start, he can win.

Canard will probably win one..If Jesus wants him too.
All Stewart ever needed to do was slow down to go faster.. I wouldn't call it conservative.. more like just showing some maturity.
Dungey will get over himself and not having GOD (the belgian one) looking out for him.
Villapoto and Stewart have shown that they both are more likely to not finish the season.
I don't see Short or Milsaps or Grant doing anything..
Reed Alesi and Kdub ought to retire before they get hurt trying to stay in the top 5

Lites west is dull dull..Hanson is a sandbagger..Seely was a surprise. I'd like to see Morais win. That german KTM rider might win one..Eli Tomac might be the real deal too

That was a good race.. Stewart's crash in practice could have been his end..Canard too.. Poto needs a Honda

We get delayed ESPN coverage over here but much preferred it when Ricky Carmichael was riding. Bubba Stewart is too impatient for supercross and that has transferred to the outdoors as well. I'd say Dungey is the best in the world just now, by miles...

Now if you yanks could produce a Trials rider that could compete in the worlds that would be brilliant :rolleyes:

I hate to date myself but back in my day Gravity Cavity was called 'Screw U'.

Binghampton was fun too. NY State has great outdoor venues.

I'm surprised you would know that..like the 99rs think LA invented cycling in 1999 I figured the world began in 1980 for you.

Acknowledged closet fan and former MX wannabe. I started racing too late at 20 years old with a job and rational amount of self-preservation. Ivan Stewart is incredible, though. Haven't seen anyone like him since Duhamel in the 70's.

No, there is a drop/climb called Screw U there. It's after they come in from the back of the course. It's a super steep drop about 200' long to an immediate left 180 turn back up. It's a first gear turn right at the base so riders get no run at the the climb.

You wanna hear 'date yourself'? I saw Rick Johnson stall his Honda 500 at the bottom of Screw U.
