    For a little while now. Where have you been? He rode a Yamaha equipped with timber sled in the xgames a few weeks back. Weird seeing him on anything but a Kawi.

    Looks like KR94 got off lucky in San Diego. Watching in slow mo it looked like it could have been bad.

    I havent watched x games in some time.
    As for KR94...didnt take long for him to crash in a manner that puts his season at risk. What was this? Round 6?

    I haven't seen this round yet, but Roczen has appeared to be riding a bit scared. This meant it was only a matter of time. I hope he's ok.

    Agreed on Roczen not riding the way he normally does and I also thought it might lead to a crash at some point. This one seemed to be just crap luck on where his arm/hand wound up coming down after getting together with another rider. He was actually being aggressive and battling to get a spot back when they came together and it went bad from there. Hope it doesn't get too far into his head.

    Already got a screwed up left arm and now he injures his right arm. That'd make me think twice about what I was doing.

    This crash/injury got me thinking about the contracts these guys negotiate and sign. I wonder if there is/could be a stipulation in the contract for the manufacturer to provide an insurance policy against injury for the rider. Knock a few grand off the contract and provide disability insurance would sure be a good deal for the rider.

    I definitely believe insurance is a big part of these contracts. And it often carries beyond the contract for long term injuries

    The dude is tearing shit up! I keep hoping to see Malcolm step up in a main, he has shown some speed in the heats then falls apart. (Not that I'm a fan, but he makes things interesting)

    Watch this round where he crashes. Doesn't seem to be scared but frustrated resulting in crash.

    How about Barcia? Damn that dude shaved his beard and remembered how to ride!

    In all honesty JA21 was on my list of people to pull for.
    ET3 was at the top. I hoped that his taste of the title last year would motivate him but hes still just too hot and cold.
    I cant say im a MM25 fan, i dont think hes quite got the depth in his riding.
    JA21 showed last year he has the drive.
    JB51 has impressed lately but looks like that run is over too.
    KR94 did what i expected him to do. Try too hard to prove to everyone how great he is and send himself home in a cast.
    250w has turned out to be the class to watch so far. We shall see if 250e can match the drama.

    Osborne put on an exciting opener for 250E. And Decotis with his first podium. Woot!

    Yeah. It looked to me like the first rider to go down clipped the berm on the inside and then got instantly mowed down by the pack.
