RV could barely speak during is short interview.....he bumped his head good.

and killed his ribs. back when i was a kid... i walked both ways in the snow up hill without shoes! what does he have left to do? its not a championship. why risk getting hurt and missing out on the next race that actually counts? what does he owe the fans? he will have the 1 plate next time you see him! owes nothing!

Ahhhhhhh, no chance at the 1 mil villapoto? Just take your ball and go home........&%$#@! the fans!!!! Typical modern day MX'er :naughty:

that's the stupidest comment i've ever read. when has RV ever slunked out of toughing it out? He hasn't. Dude rung his bell a little bit and they decided a non points race, no chance for 100k or 1mill, they'll just sit out, they guy just came off six months from the knee thing. don't get your post at all.

I think DeCoster meant that the first moto, someone else hit Dungey, bending his shifter and in the second, it was Dungey's fault.

Im guessing Dunge had a baby show in the trailer and Decoster had enough so he was venting.

There is some of that crap going on different than the old days but there's other guys it would apply to and not RV at all imo.

somethin's going on. don't know about behind the scenes but the dunge has experienced quite a few mechanicals and crazy happening's more than anyone in the last couple of years. if I was dunge I might get a little pissy eventually too if this did happen. Never heard until tonight someone saying dunge is a dick behind the scenes, dunno, anyone know? Think i'd be pissed tho if in a 2nd moto the thing wasn't worked out if i didn't hang it up someplace- it's a damn shifter, how the hell can u f-it up? If it's not the shifter, it's the gearing, and if that's fubar'd? Not much dungey could do. Was really suprised by decosters response, he didn't even seem to 'try' to even things out which an experienced manager (of anything) would do for pubilc appearance. You take care of dirty laundry in private, etc.

Dungey got pushed into a block to bend the first shifter, then hit a block (the same block?) on his own to bend it in the 2nd moto, that's what DeCoster was talking about.

DeCoster - Totally unprofessional. KTM best keep him away from the camera.

Way for Dungey to handle it like a pro both on and off the track.

RV played it smart. No reason for him to take un-necessary risks when he's concerned about points and titles (later in the season - not just tonight).

Good to see Reed right up there today. I don't know what was going on with Alessi and Barcia during moto 2, Alessi shaking his head and the hand signals they were giving.

Going to be a great season next year if everyone stays healthy.

Everyone who hates on barcia has nothing to say right now hey...

You want to talk about modern champions packing up and going home.. How about the one who broke a pinky and threw the towel in... Villipoto is clearly the fastest on the planet and had reed not have crashed he would have had a win those two will be 1-2 next year barcia will be 3rd or Wilson

If you ride/race a KTM, it's expected that your going to have to do some maintenance from time to time.

I hate to say it but I think Alessi was signalling for Barcia to go by. Alessi had nothing for him and was maybe thinking why take the risk of hurting himself in the process of trying to keep up. Good for Alessi in my eyes.

I think Dungey best days are behind him. he should move on and get into marketing, offering KTM transmissions services and selling the new KTM Kleenex brand tissues, LOL

Perhaps they would have ridden, but that was before the full effects of concussions were really known. If you watched Villopoto's interview, he was pretty clearly concussed. I'm surprised they allowed him on the camera.

If you're going to slam Villo, I guess you better throw Kdub in there too. Is he a puss in your eyes?

Until the crash, Villo was really fast. KInda reminded me of someone else that many slam all the time...faster'n hell, then BOOM! Will that now be Villo's way? Lets see...2 races...2 crashes....2 DNFs.

ridiculous comments. back in my day... they would have... its a diff game now! its not about heart. its about health. back in the day we had an ambulance and that was it. now they have a full truck that can read brain waves, X-ray, hell they can even to surgery's in that thing. we know alittle more about injuries. those guys rode the way they did because they were normally high or drunk. (not all) you can't compare today's racers to yesterday's for a million reasons. so funny to hear this crap. have you ever called in to work? typical modern day workers!

The only thing that surprised me about his interview after his little get-off was that he didn't have his little monster energy drink with the label so perfectly facing the camera......while he eloquently sips nothing every few seconds. As far as K-dub, the dude's 30-something years old and he will always be a fan favorite.....he's earned it. That guy was racing motocross back when Cigarette companies were major sponsors.....not some emo-fu*king energy drinks.

....but the chicks are hot and Redbull does some cool sh*t :cool:

On second thought, I'm actually glad he decided to pack it up. Had he bumped his head again, he might not been able to do this to the competition or the girls that roam the pro racing forum:

I think these are the brain waves you are talking about Tdosh ;) ........... :lol:

      Is there a certain amount of inactive years that have to go by before a race number can be reused?
      Is that something they keep buying a permit for every year and if they miss a year it goes up as avalible?

      from the motokazie web site:
      "Motokazie is pleased to announce that we have signed a 5 year agreement with the Scott County Fairgrounds.  Coming in the next few week Motokazie is installing new lights, new water system, new entrance and most importantly a new track!!!   The new design will have a wide motocross feel.   Signature big step down table tops, big sand roller section and improved soils.  Lap times will be a bit longer.  To help you visualize the following will remain:  Start Gate, First turn, Tunnel jump and finish line.   All other parts will be new! Season opener is April 22nd.  2017 tentative schedule is listed, we may have to change 1 date.  We are pleased that all fair races that you regularly attend are back on the schedule."
       
      I'm pumped!  I was hoping they'd make a big track here, since it's very close to the west metro area!

      Monster Energy Supercross: Detroit, is it time for change in Supercross?
      The 12th round of Monster Energy AMA Supercross concluded in Detroit leaving behind some hard to ignore layout deficiencies on the Ford Field.  While the series progresses to St. Louis I find myself asking more questions about the overall structure of the series (as it continues to grow and become more mainstream) and less questions about who will or will not be crowned the champion.  At the pinnacle of Supercross why was there not enough dirt to cover the stadium floor and how did the stadium floor start peeking through after only 2 laps in the first 250 heat?  Is it time to look at different track building techniques?  Here are some different ideas :
       
       
       
      Another series challenge is the need of updated timed qualifiers.  I would like to see the top 20 timed qualifiers split in the heats.  Rewarding the top half of the field, top 10 in each heat get a 2 second advantage over the other half of the gate, prevents slower guys from becoming moving road blocks.   The rest of qualifying should follow suit, if you don't qualify out of the heat or win your semi, during the Main event you take off in the second wave.  Again, this will reward the top qualifiers.  This will also give us the elite matchups in the front of the field, Dungey vs Tomac and the moving roadblocks like Alessi and Friese won't be in the way.  Every other major form of racing rewards fast qualifying.  This will also make the first turn far safer, and while it's cool seeing 22 of the worlds fastest 450’s funnel into a couple lines, the bikes are too fast and have outgrown the current starting procedure.  This will help keep the stars healthy and on the track, but still maintain the  entertainment factor.
      The final issue in review is how quick the riders figure out the fast lines.  With dartfish and overlapping video these teams have taken out the guesswork of finding the fastest line.   If part of the track was not opened until the night program, riders may have more difficulty discovering the fasted line before the race has started.  Give the guys a hot lap and then turn them loose!  While this doesn’t seem to promote safety, it rewards riders who can learn new sections quickly, making the series more interesting as we will see different rider’s skills outside of dirt preference.  Also, the much debated “chase” format has been discussed and in this era of short attention spans, smart phones, and instant gratification we have lost the appreciation for a season long war.  If we want to attract a new generation of fans, we need to up the intensity and make sure the champion is not crowned halfway through the series (like Dungey in 2016), we can't count on Eli making it interesting every year.
      These are just a couple things I feel need to be addressed for the future of Supercross, what do you think?  Should we add a shark pit or have riders change a tire for starting position? Let me hear your ideas.
