    Rough night for Roczen and Bogle. .


    Ken. I feel like he got off super easy for having his arm sucked in to the swingarm.

    Bogle

    Yes, Ken was starting to get faster and faster as the races moved on. Bummer for him. I feel for boggle and anyone who gets injured. However, I’ve never been a fan of his. Maybe this will keep Mookie on the yellow bike longer? I hope so.

    Indeed and JA21 was smart and rode well. :thumbsup: Husky has the red plate in both classes!

    yeah... Zach looked sharp. He didn't lose his head when he lost the front wheel early too.

    I thought Anderson was a bit timid. kinda early to be playing it safe.... but maybe not. He shouldn't worry about Eli of course, but maybe Marvin- and definitely Baggett 'cause that guy is relentless. Seely is too nice I feel.

    I was never a bam-bam fan; but I do like guys trying to make a comeback, and the guys with a flawed personality... for whatever reason (like Eli maybe?). I hope JB51 can get back into it quick. but it looks like a 6-8 week-er.

    good racing but the last 2 sx's haven't been blowing my skirt up (Sandy Eggo, Dallas)- too many injuries. 250s were great.

    Totally agree with the above. Zach does was it takes. Passive aggressive attitude! I was also super bummed out for JB51. I’ve always been a fan of his. I like his go for it style. Physically I think he’s been a 5-10 rider. Never seemed to be able to keep pace. JA cool head Anderson. Best move was to keep it cool. Eli was having a good run at it so why get crazy. I’m so not a MM fan. Really don’t know what to say here.

    Def too many injuries, the list grows every week! Really sux to lose both KR an JB51 from the top 5. I'm not really a KR fan, but was rooting for him to get better and do well. I do like JB51 and was glad he got a boost and was doing so well.
    Glad to see ET back to form, at least for this race :rolleyes: JA got a great start and only 1 sec down after 1 lap. I don't think ET would have ran away with it if JA hadn't lost it on lap 2. They ran similar lap times, so JA had the speed. And he passed Peick, Coop and Seely very methodically and clean to get back to 4th. I thought he played it very smart and did well.
    Lots to complain about with SX, but I still enjoy the racing. Even if they are white KTMs I'm happy there's some Huskys up front again finally. :cheers:

    great ride for Eli (last to 2nd); he blew by webb. way to go Brayton! 33years old. was jason anderson sick? I didn't hear anything.

    good ride for Zack also. I think Luke Renzland (250- 10th) moved up 10 places too, like like zack did (14 to 4th place). jordon smith 1st (!), jmart 2nd, austin 3rd.

    both eli and zack were on a mission; but there was no stopping eli.

    (actually, Daytona is my least favorite race- but this was pretty good).

    JA- is going to have to focus the next few rounds. Defhappy for Brayton. Marvin oh man what the heck happen to him? That darn tear off I think was getting to him haha. Zacks fast for sure. Eli, mission is right!

    Jason just keeps doing what needs to be done and opening up the gap to second
    Zach is holding on well since Austin went out, sad nice guy
    Husky second in both classes and both headed for titles so far

    man, those triple crowns suck the big one. On one hand, I dig the old-school 3 moto format; but, sheesh- the wait between races is in-fukken-sane... even while waiting for the 250s.

    pick up the pace!

    It's happening, almost a done deal. JA just needs to keep it on 2 wheels, Zo still needs to kick some ass in LV :banana:

    I agree. Move the pace up on the triple crowns. I particularly didn’t like the tape delay.

    Another controversial finish in the big bike class. WoW! I do think that Marvin went into that corner a little hot. ET looks to be in his rut when whamo!

    Listening to MM25 post show conference it appeared that he was ready to cry. The dude doesn’t have a bad bone in him. I think he just made a dumb mistake. ET definitely not happy.

    Marv went in hot and Eli suddenly chose a different line than all the other laps
    this is racing, Marv was fast Eli was hungry, no good end to come from that
    Marv had a fishy story and Eli acted like an egotistical 3 year old
    Jason was "hey leave me out"
    Marv could have been more sincere and Eli could have acted more mature
