Just a few weeks away. Some of the injured guys should be back. Are there any last minute team/rider changes anyone's heard about? How about predictions? I think Baggett will build off last year's success. Is Barcia on the blue bike for the outdoors? Hoping he shows up this season. What are your thoughts?

Mookie not racing, JGR was SX only, bummer for him.

Gotta be a dummy to bet against ET3.

Would love to see Baggett hanging it out like did last year before he got hurt. I think we are gonna see a good series

I agree on Baggett. He started showing some more promise towards the end of SX this year too. Hard to bet agains Eli if he stays on the bike though.

Got lucky picking Anderson for supercross. So I'll pick him for the outdoors. Definitely hoping Barcia and Baggett stays at the front the whole season too. And, hoping Osborne gets some competition or it'll be who gets second

Is Herlings going to come over for a race or two after MXGP?

KTM terminates Tickle's contract. So that drug test pretty much ends Tickles career.

Man that one's gonna be messy. It's hard to even think about. Broc seems like a pretty legit guy, and the conspiracy theorists are coming out of the wood work saying that he probably got slipped something, and that KTM may have even had something to do with it.

Brad, the long and the short of it is: It is worth it.

I’m a little disappointed that the 125 races might not be covered (or covered well) but it is still worth it. I think when you break it down, it’s like a few bucks per race. Live, commercial free plus unlimited playback of all the motos (DVR style).
There was an issue last year where they had “technical difficulties” at one of the rounds and most of one moto was totally missed.
I reached out to their customer service and asked if they would consider remedying that by prorating some of next years (2018) subscription. Unfortunately, they simply stated that there are no refunds, as indicated in their FAQ section. That didn’t answer my question or provide much customer service at all. So I asked them to simply remove me from the automatic renewal this year.

I will cave in and subscribe again in order to watch the races I can’t be at though. Even though it was a customer service fail, it’s still worth it to me to pay for the service.

Probably just a good excuse to get rid of him since he didn’t produce...

He was hired because he finished every season in the last 3 years (IIRC) without getting hurt, not to win. They just wanted a solid guy on a bike. He wasn't making MM25 money by any means.
