    I agree with everything you just said and I hope no one gets injured this year either. I'm a Reed fan but it would be awesome to see Carnard take the SX title cause your right, hes been through a lot and deserves a championship under his belt. Bottom line good luck to all the racers this year and I'm hoping for an exciting SX 2013 season!!!

    Work in progress, but installed so far; 265/70/17 Duratracs, Spidertrax, OME885X coils with OME lean spacer, OME N140S and N182 shocks, Wheeler's 1.5" 3 Leaf Progressive AAL (kept the overload), LR UCAs. TP14 spacers
    Congrats to Barcia. Too bad Canard folded and messed up the 1 and 2 for Honda though.

    Villopoto FTW! If he keeps riding like that he'll be back in the points lead in no time... Pretty stoked to see Chad Reed up in the #3 spot for points too

    Pretty good race this weekend but I only got to watch the big boys cause SPEED had the wrong time listed for the Lites class so my DVR recorded another show.:(

    Sucks to hear that Windham is retiring but hes been in the game so long and hes still a great racer usually always finishing in the top 10 and thats not easy to do. Glad my boy Reed was able to get on the podium and hes not far from the points leader. RVP looked his best this year so far and hes going to be a top competitor for sure. Stewart is looking pretty good but his knee is obviously bothering him so that sucks. BAM BAM looked good to until he wrecked. But all-in-all this should be a great season if everyone can stay healthy!!

    Dungey made that LCQ worth watching!

    x2^^^ it was good to see him win the main also after everything that went wrong for him tonight.It was an exiting race to watch with all those top riders up front,though I thought Villapoto was going to be in the mix for sure.God willing I'll be in San Diego next weekend being the last race in Cali.

    I don't think there could have been more crashes. That was a slick track. Dungey's mech better get that air shock right for next time. That was a weird fail. Good riding on his part though.

    I've always like Dungey as a rider. I think hes had the most mechanical errors so far then anyone else. The Monster Energy Cup was prime example of this when his shifter malfunctioned.

    What was up with Barcia's rear fender?....that thing was flapping around like no ones business!!

    I know I couldn't figure that one out at all. His fender was nuts. My wife asked if it was supposed to be like that. Bless her heart ha. That's after she has seen mine too, not flapping around.

    Yeah it looked kinda funny, haha. I was watching Short's and Reed's 2013 CRF450's and their rear fenders were just fine. :eek:

    Millsaps is also riding really well. He is by far the most consistent right now. I suppose that's why he is in the pts lead ha. I liked their poll before the first 450 heats about how many races poto will win this year. I don't think he will get past 3-5. He is not looking to great this year. A lot of other riders are stepping it up.

    Yeah Millsaps is looking awesome this year and I'm glad hes riding as well as he is. RVP is still one of the fastest riders out there and I'm not sure what happened in the main on Saturday and I'm assuming he went down or had bike issues cause he caught up for a little bit then lost positions again and they didnt show on TV what happened. I want to see Canard up on the podium more often cause he has been through a lot these past 2 years.

    Yea poto is def fast. Tough luck the first few races. He did wash the front end out on a left hand 90. That may have been during a heat though. Good to see Barcia finally finish one too.

    I like Barcia as well and that kids def got some good talent. Reed needs to stop going down so fast after he gets those descent holeshots!!! This past weekend he was in third when he went down on the turn!!!

    Yea. He is past his prime I think. He should take a lesson from RC and McGrath and get out when you are still good. You don't want people to remember how much you sucked in the end. I wanted Windham to finish the year. He was doing it for a while too.

    Agreed, I think Reed is past his prime as well but at least he was still making podiums unlike Windham even though Windham is still a good rider usually finishing in the top 10's. I've always been a Reedy fan so I still want to see him win and possibly take another Championship but he def needs to step his game up. :eek:

    I didn't think Reed has won a championship. I know that he has finished 2nd a few times. Windham was just plain old. Sweet to see him ride that long though. 19 years in that sport is crazy.
