Tell us how you really feel Josh....

Been quiet around here about the TLDKTM kid who broke his neck. Tough to see the track workers/medics getting roasted over it. It's moto. you have guys wadding their stuff up all over the track all day on a Saturday. Guys get scraped off the track left and right. Someone makes a move (maybe a bad move) to get the kid off the track, and now everyone is blaming the medics on his neck issues. That sucks.

What's going on with Roczen? Tomac finally getting his win in Texas, the others may be scrood. If he keeps his mojo, it'll be a race for second.

Lots of great bar banging again in the 250s.

Finally? He won it in 2018...
Ken got 2nd, that’s about as good as it gets. Ken got out of this thing in one piece and that’s more than the other half of the championship contenders can say.
If RJ Hampshire was French.......
I would put him in the same category as the other French riders with poor judgement when it comes to passes and the inability to sell themselves afterwards. Instead, he’s in the American racers with poor judgement when it comes to passes and the inability to sell themselves afterwards category...like Barcia.

And just to clarify, Ferrandis boo’s are all residual from the Craig take out. Some people never got their chance to let him know how they feel in person until SX came to their town.

And RJ’s take out wasn’t even half as bad as Dylan’s.

'Bout time this place woke up! RE: Tomac's win in Texas, was going off of the comments made by either Ralph or Ricky.

And Hampshire's take outs(plural), he did two in one evening so it equals the frenchy's .....LOL

Well, Chase isn’t as popular as Christian either.
Remember, Ricky Carmichael got boo’d out of the stadium for taking out Travis Pastrana.
He also got boo’d when he got lowered into the US Open SX with a crown on.

This happens in all sports, fans cheer for their “hero’s” and boo the “villains”.
Chase is not quite a hero (yet) and RJ is not quite a villain (yet) but Christian is absolutely a hero and Dylan is absolutely a villain!

The idea that there are hundreds of thousands of xenophobic wee haws booing Dylan SIMPLY because he is French is asinine!
I will admit it does not help being French though. lol

The last part of what you said is exactly it..... mostly.... The fact that Dylan is french, in my opinion, gave most people no reason to give him the benefit of the doubt that most other riders would get. Even Alessi and other SX supervillains got more benefit of the doubt than a guy like Dylan EVER will.

OK, now that we've discussed that one at length, what are everyone's thoughts on Tomac and Roczen with ET3's cross jump/lineblock/whatever you wanna call it in the third moto?

That’s the line Eli took all night. The cool thing about being in front is that you get to draw the lines of the track. You don’t have to (and frankly you cannot) worry about if the guy behind you might be carrying more speed trying to pass you in a line you might want to take.
Same thing with Davalos and Barcia on press day a couple weeks ago. Justin had no grounds to be upset over Martin “crossing over” as Martin was ahead of him and that was the line on the track with the next turn being a 90 degree right.

Ken and Eli’s handshake after the race says it all. Eli and Ken are probably the cleanest and most trusted/respected guys on the track.
