    think i watched a race or two last season through that site but coverage was sort of annoying vs broadcast style. we'll see.
    STREAMING:

    I do not get Fox Sports 1 ... so I had to watch Anaheim 1 on youtube after it was over.

    I was able to stream using the link above BUT its blocked in the US for live Streaming. I found a link and posts off a twitter comment - I used Google Chrome with the HOLA + add on. I downloaded it and then selected Germany as an IP Address and was able to live stream it. Monster Energy Supercross on Livestream.


    Worked great

    Re: AMA SX

    What I really like this season is that MEPCK is not running away with all the races.
    It's nice to see a change up front.

    Re: AMA SX

    I think the AMA needs some consistency regarding the bumping thing. Bowers in the lites class seems to run guys a bit and the ref talked to him (don't know if there was a fine or not), but I don't think Reed hit Canard all that hard (just from my TV viewing) to warrant an immediate black flag. And now you have Reed, Canard, and even MrsTwoTwo (I didn't make that up, she did) talking about this on twitter.

    Or in acronym speak: AMA/FIM SX needs to get consistent on this. Just because guys like TB911 came up via AX where bumping might be more common, doesn't mean he should be able to do it but not RC22. Even RC4 says rubbin is racin.

    Are there any SX tracks in the Peoples' Commonwealth where you can watch this kind of racing? On a smaller scale, I'd imagine..

    Re: AMA SX

    MA800 sucks... i wish he would retire..
    Barcia's head it too big... thats whats slowin him down.
    Reed.. i wish he would get up there but age and previous injury may end it.
    Dungey needs to step it up.
    hopin Roxzen steps up the game as well
    Lov to see Canard get in the title hunt.. poor bastid.. good spirited kid for all hes been thru.
    Tomac needs to get up there too.

    Re: AMA SX

    My $0.02

    The Bowers/Webb/Barcia/Canard type incidents happen as a result of someone trying to make a pass for position and if the rider gets too rough with the take out they get a talking to and have to back it down a notch or face further action. The Reed thing, though I thought it was well deserved, was purely a retaliatory strike by one rider against another, an incident where one of the bigger name riders in the series could have been injured and taken out of the series (playing devils advocate on that part, relatively low speed get off was the result) costing the promoters some fan attendance and therefore money. Looks like the officials don't want to see that type of thing and they made it known to Reed/other riders/fans by issuing the black flag.

    As far as the Canard/Reed incident goes, I like Trey Canard as a racer and think he has that aggression and riding on the edge that makes him fun to watch, however he has been involved in way too many of these incidents, over his entire career, where he is the passer, gets too aggressive and takes himself and the passee down and out of contention. Sometimes these incidents have ended in injury for Canard and sometimes for the person he was trying to race with. Obviously I don't want to see Canard lose the aggression in his passing to the point that he is similar to what people say about Dungey and not being able to make passes when needed, but he needs to learn how to better race close, aggressive and clean. The example of Roczen and Tomac from Phoenix comes to mind. Two guys riding on the edge but having enough respect for each other to race clean and safe to the finish.

    Arenacross came to Worcester last year, don't think this year. SX came to the old Sullivan Stadium twice in the 80's and once in the 90's (I think - didn't go in the 90's but went to both in the 80's - raced amateur day - what an eye opener).

    Re: AMA SX

    i agree with JR300, while it was deserved, CR22 is a vet rider and knows better. he is using the argument of inconsistency in officiating. i disagree, CR22 intentionally took out TC41. if he had even attempted to guise the retaliation in a block pass then he wouldnt have been black flagged.
    i dont see why everyone is crying about TB911, hes banging bars. thats racing.

    MA800 has no stamina. he should really consider going to AX.

    Re: AMA SX

    i think canard was expecting reed to go into the turn and shoot out.. at the last second it seems reed was going to square off the corner... im assuming canard expected to land next to him.
    reed was stupid to run canard off the track though... but i guess he wasnt thinkin straight.. im sure he was royally pissed!!! unfortunately all it got him was a black flag..
    yes.. reed didnt hit him all that hard, but he wasnt expecting it and he was pulling a tear-off which may explain why it seemed like he just rode into the touch block... lol..

    at the end of the day.. reed was wrong.

    arenacross came to the DCU this year, it was the Kicker sponsored series, took my son. always forget how stupid small those tracks are! we hit up AX at Mohegan Sun a few years back, that was pretty fun to watch.

    and yup, i agree, lame move on Reed's part.
