    Aah, that DMC logo on the Yamaha brings back memories. I have a KX250 that was a factory bike, Ron Lechien's old bike, that Dave Miller used as his personal bike sitting in the garage.

    Thanks for sharing.
    Are you heading to the Indy round again this year?

    Good luck to your sponsored riders.

    I'm still a Dungey fan but I feel after his injury this year in outdoors that his career maybe coming to an end. Hope I'm wrong.
    Like most have said, Roczen seems to be on fire.

    boy how things change. RD1 has lost a 1 race lead in points with ET3 and him tied in points. ET3 will have the red plate next weekend.

    Gotta love it! Tomac is definitely looking fast.

    Man, I wish Roczen was still in there though...

    good to see tomac stepped up to make things interesting, would have been a boring season otherwise. though I'm still quietly rooting for dungey to take the tittle, seems ever since roczen crashed he dialed it back. now that tomac is right on his six last couple of races we saw a little more intensity but not enough to actually win a race. seattle was a bit of a bummer though since dungey was out in the first turn, did seem to light a fire under his ass to get back to fourth in the end.

    ET3 cracked under the red plate pressure last week in NJ.

    Stage is set for a killer 250 East race with the top 3 riders 2 points apart.

    450 class could have lots of Dramma with RD1 with a good points lead but will 33 put him on the ground like he did Mookie to help out his Kaw teammate?

    I am typing this from Phoenix on my way to Vegas.

    Seems like it. Tomac was on fire chasing down Dungey in the points chase. Now that he finally had the red plate he threw it away... I know it's easier said than done and I'm sure there's a ton of pressure involved but Tomac really was on a role, dare I say almost being a bit cocky beause he knew Dungey was having a hard time fighting him off. His performance in East Rutherford was downright shameful and it clearly showed in his riding.

    Let's hope it will not come to that...

    Riders can say all they want team orders don't play a factor but you can't tell me Musquin genuinely made a mistake on the last lap allowing Dungey to pass... I watched that move over and over again and the whole deal just had bad acting written all over it, even if it was a real mistake on Musquin's part it didn't look the part.

    There's a lot on the line, a championship means more than just a rider's performance, it's everything linked to the brand so if KTM sees a possibility to further secure Dungey's top spot you can't tell me they won't tell Musquin to back off if he's in a position that could cost Dungey points. I'd like to believe that's not the case because I want everything in a championship to be straight up, but I don't know if that's really how it is...

    Tomac really looked like crap after he bit it and could never really get back into a rhythm afterwards. I'm sure he'll come out super-pumped, he seems to be one of those that needs to see the proverbial rabbit but I'll still pull for RD.

    I agree, no doubt in my mind Musquin gave it away, in fact I was surprised he stayed out front as long as he did. He must've had orders to pull over but so did Tomac's teammate.

    HO-LEE SHIT what a last couple races!

    Osbourne taking the east title was more than deserved in my eyes. another clinch at the start ment he started dead last. his move on Savatgy at the end was mega aggressive but honestly when the title is on the line and with the way Savatgy was riding I don't think it was completely out of line. my 2 cents, the ride Savatgy was putting in didn't seem worthy of a title, Osbourne has come from the back of the pack this weekend and last weekend by 2 scenario's of misfortune and he has never given up and put in some blistering fast rides. Savatgy was right there at the start in Vegas and started dropping back substantially all the while knowing what was on the line.

    450 races were spoiled because I spotted a press conference shot of the top 3, watching the race though I did not know what would happen for Dungey to fall back to fourth. Tomac and Dungey were up front the entire time up until the last lap with Dungey getting shoved off the track already once before by Tomac. Then taking the lead on the last lap and getting clinched up by Tomac again allowing Anderson to pass. At this point if Grant was to pass Tomac I'm sure he would have handed the spot back with everything that has transpired in the last couple races. It's done now and Dungey has made it, I knew it was going to be close and I figured Tomac would have taken it the way he was riding up until 2 races ago. One can't help but wonder what would have happened if Musquin stayed up front last weekend not giving those extra 3 points to Dungey...
