    I'm excited to see what the season brings... and bought tickets to the Vegas final in May. I'm thinking Roczen is going to clean house this season.

    Blows my mind that they do such a good job promoting this series, riders and venues yet do so bad with the AMA boys. Hope this is the year that changes.

    Re: Supercross 2017

    sounds like a handful of options but none free. wonder if the YouTube crowd will still be able to post races now that they are offering a 'pay-per-view' option at $99.99 for the season. yikes.

    2017 Supercross TV schedule now available | Supercross Live

    Fans in North America can catch the aerial excitement and high-speed chases on their desktops and mobile devices via FOX Sports GO, FOX Sports’ authenticated TV everywhere app, as well as the Monster Energy Supercross pay-per-view livestream available at Supercrosslive.com/live-race. Providing an option to access the action and energy in real time outside of North America, the pay-per-view live stream offers a season pass for the first time for $99.99. Races stream live and up to one week following the race.

    I feel like JS7 put out a very similar statement last year. WTF is that supposed to mean anyway? either retire or dont.

    Re: Supercross 2017

    Carmichael said that some tracks had lap times so short that they had main events 11 minutes long last year, so they wanted more consistency in duration for the fans, event to event. It's been that way in outdoor mx forever (time+2 laps) although the time has shortened over the years.

    makes sense. im sure its way easier for TV scheduling as well.
    good race. i expected/hoped more from ET3. i knew KR94 was gonna be fast. he def made a statement. if he can stay healthy then he will be tough to beat.

    Re: Supercross 2017

    If Roczen wins the championship it'll be the first time in a while that Honda pulls off what they've done many times in the past...Hire the currently fastest guy on the planet to make their dirtbikes look like the best. Seems like over the years they've had many, many championships won by riders who were on a different brand the year before (and in many cases, for their entire careers before).

    Nice to see Decotis start the year with a top ten...held off Forkner for quite a while in the process. I'm a fan of Mcelrath, too, after watching him outdoors at Southwick last year.

    How many times are they going to say that this season?

    On a similar note, did you know that Eli Tomac's father John is a former mountain bike racing champion..............

    Yeah it occurred to me that Tomac's explanation for a poor showing at the first round (arm pump) wouldn't likely get a very sympathetic reaction from his old man, since it almost certainly can be blamed on training, or diet, or both, and his old man's obviously a freak about those things.

    My point was more that Ralph and Jeff latch onto some obscure point and mention it way too much during their broadcast to the point where it gets really annoying hearing it multiple times every week. Maybe it is me but I don't care what Eli's Dad did. His Dad isn't the one racing but they latch on to it and I haven't stopped hearing about it since Eli broke onto the scene years ago. From Saturday's broadcast this year's dead horse to beat will be how Roczen is making a statement and how he said he was gunning for Dungey's title. I guess to a more casual viewer hearing those types of stories is pretty cool but to those who watch every week year after year it can get old.

    That being said, agreed that if Eli did have issues with arm pump he should figure out how to train/ride so that he doesn't have issues with it.

    I think they are going to obsess over Roczens suit and tie.

    Re: Supercross 2017

    Decotis was the most aggressive guy out there. They did a good job showing it too. This is my second season watching, but it seems like he always starts poorly and works his way up from a double digit position after the first lap? If he can get a good holeshot it seems like he could hold on for a podium.

    Overall, I thought it was a pretty solid start to the season. Entertaining in almost every heat/qualifier/race.
