    KTM = "Kan Take Mexico"..... nice riding by Ivan Ramirez and KTM Kurt Caselli on the # 3x bike. CONGRATS!

    Good to see non-red on the top step of the podium!\m/\m/\m/

    it really is a shame that the KTM win is marred by the crash of both Honda and Kawi (am i correct here?).... damn shame and hope those guys are ok. However, I still was putting my money down on Caselli... he is really riding tough stuff well.... was leading the King of The Motos until his radiator broke.

    Caselli is awesome and I'm not taking anything away from him. He very well could have won without a crash from anyone. Just teasing Timmy Pumpkin Boy. :D

    I hope Kendall isn't badly injured. QC was seen smiling on his Twitter page. KTM won the SF 250 in '05 as well—Blais/Cody/Grider. At that time JC blamed the loss on a 'broken part'. :)

    Really BGrant, you didn't follow it? This was one to not miss.
    The suspected 5.5 bike race of course was 4.5 cuz Norman didn't race (as a few said would be but some thought he was in SF to ride, not just party).
    The Kawi went down hard 2times really early. KTM Quinn wadded himself early. TimmyW wadded himself while on the tail (honda ahead on time) of the Caselli/Ramirez KTM. Caselli/Ramirez had an awesome race, the only real players to not take themselves out. Surprised the heck outta me the bike survived. And regardless if JCR had the adjusted lead 70mi fro the finish the KTM was gonna win, kurts just that good.
    Who wouldda guessed (besides JustinH) that we'd see 3 of the top guys get chopper rides back to the US??
    ...
    Allen - what do you mean about "hope Kendal isn't badly injured"? Typo?

    Why was Colton allowed to be transported to the race bike via Helo??

    I thought transfer of racer and parts was Illegal in SCORE.

    If that is true, He should be DQ'd

    Or Im I wrong??

    Not sure I want to get a ktm. I don't think they sell all that factory support! He didn't sell the bike very well sold the factory support pretty well though.

    I was wondering the same thing??? If he started the race, he can't be in the helicopter and get on the bike again. If he rode to where Weigand crashed, then he went backwards on the course. Either way, should be a DQ, Right?

    Read on another site that Colton rode back to Tim and made sure to stay way off course.

    My bad on the Helo maybe.

    It's a crappy thing to predict, that's for sure. I would have much rather seen a 248 mile battle for the lead between four teams. A 50+ MPH average over that crap of a course is a major crapshoot. Even Caselli went down early on.
