    Webb threw a scrub / whip at Kenny on the main that was insane. Looked him right in the eye. I think it was the main.

    I'm still a much bigger fan of "real" MX of the outdoor terrain variety. US Nats and MXGP

    When I saw that I was thinking it was a shot over the bow to make Roczen think twice and shake his confidence. I dont think it works and Roczen is focused on coming back which many thought he never would. Hats off to that guy, he has worked so hard the last year to get here. It is an amazing effort only a handful of people could overcome.

    There is no doubting Roczens drive. I was nervous enough for him anyway lol. Really don't want to see what happens with another get off...at the same time, that's what separates him from everyone else. Supercross was easily my favorite but as I get older it's harder to watch. It actually gives me anxiety watching that crazy stuff lol

    ANDERSON/ROCKSTAR HUSQVARNA take the top step of the podium! Nothing better than seeing a husky on top imo. Roczen had a strong lead for a while but once Anderson got out front he pretty much pulled away. Musquin out in the heat. I’d venture to say Roczen will pull off a win soon though.

    Routing for ElHombre tonight. I think he’s got this if he stays focused. Weimer / Bogle back just two more lappers to get in the way.

    It does look like he's in a great position to contend for the title. He's def upped his game, looking forward to him and a healthy MM dicing for the lead. Heard that JA said he's thinking like RD5 and he's riding alot like RV2. Expecting ET3 to win some races if he stays healthy, MM too, but don't see either of them overtaking JA in points unless he crashes out. :cheers:

    hmmm. JA has got the fastest lap by quiet a bit. And it looks like the little bitch-slap session that Webb and Barcia had last week in the yamaha pits has lit a small fire under webb (and he is gonna need it to keep his career going)- he's 3rd fastest behind brayton. Barcia is not too far back at 6th (only 0.020 seconds separate 3-5th)

    since this is the 1st qualifying session, it doesn't mean too much- but it should be a great race

    Word is they butted heads after A2 and ended up wrestling in the Yammi pit.

    Aside from the husky . JA is the main reason I've watched since the middle of last season . Him going from mid field to top 5 in most races last year was the only real entertainment . The rest was just the odd block pass or crash .

    I think he’s getting the short end of the stick on the pass with Marvin last week. Sure was it aggressive? Yes. But clean. He’s out to win. Marvin was slow in that section not to mention scared because the whoops were approaching. Everyone knows he enters the whoops like he’s picking produce on a Sunday at the grocery store.

    MM has gotten really bad in the whoops since the crash. Hopefully he gets his confidence back quick.

    JA was what made 250's worth watching and before that it was Tomac. They had said JA doesn't train at the baker factory anymore. Wonder if it had to do with being competitive and distancing himself from friends on the track

    I had heard that nobody wants to ride with him during practices (this was last year; Dungey)

    he's a bit loose. I dig him.

    Man! You been missing out. The last few years have been a wild ride, both in the US and MXGP. Lots of Huskys in the mix and great racing in general. There's a very good chance Husky will be on the top step in both classes of SX this year and both the MXGP classes are strong too. I watch 'em all :cheers:
