    I gotta say he has more intestinal fortitude towards his racing than I thought. He's been spotted locally at a number of SoCal tracks getting himself back in order. Time will tell if that world class speed will be there....but after what he went through and time frame to back on the bike. I'm changing my mind about him.....if you asked me 6 months ago I said he will be retired.

    I'll say one thing . That suspension looks amazing . Are these the air forks with a larger negative spring ?

    NCSteve...I'm still a bit skeptical as well. Looking smooth and fast solo going around at Pala MX with locals is one thing, but all out track war with 20 other guys that are world class is a way different story. Ask RJ and others what (especially) the wrist injury can do to your MX career.

    I totally agree.

    I will point out that Too Hip's injury was on his throttle hand; KR's is his left I believe- that's a huge difference. but it did look a little funky in the vid too- they way he was holding it... and frankly, I wasn't seeing the speed some people commented on. But he has drive; and a little time.

    I hope the MXdN results don't fvck with Seely's mind. He's not my favorite rider but seems like a good kid. He can be blazingly fast on occasion.
