Decided to make a thread on the supercross races where we can discuss results without ruining it for others.

Hats off to Ryan Dungey for his first win in the 450 class. Stewart had bad luck all night (
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=O14fZiZOJIo&feature=player_embedded ). It's hard to tell if it was any ones fault other then that's racing, **** happens. Apparently Reed is out of the season with a broken hand too. Oh and i guess at the end of the race, James tried to "find" reed and ended up pushing Reeds biker over as well as some choice of language. Definitely an exciting series already!

Watched the race at the in laws. Its deffinitely good to see a good kid like Dungey come up and be a Challenge. Poto has been disappointing. I think Stewart kind of set himself up to be landed on by crossing the track in the air while Partridge had no other place to go. But that's racing. I have landed on someone before. Didn't ever hear what happened to Reed til now. I thought he just gave up. Reed deffinitely put an agressive move on Stewart that he knew wouldn't have stuck anyways. Great Racing this year.

Dungey is talented, and he's got Carmichael teaching him the ropes. The kid is gonna go far.

Reed has been fined and possibly suspended for one race (not that it matters, hes out for the season) for the lil love tap he gave stewart when they were on the ground. Stewart got a "warning" for knocking over Reeds 50k bike. Hmmmmmmmm

Nah, Reeds fine and suspension was lifted. They were at the AMA trailer til 4:am appealing the "love tap" Reed put on Stewart. Reeds argument was that his hand was trapped under Stewart, and he had to push him off to get out.

(If you watch the replay, it's clear he was just trapped and trying to get Stewart off him)

As far as Stewart coming over and kicking over Reeds bike... That's just straight low class..

Yea, that was Supercross lites. Ryan Morais was team-mates with Jake Weimer, (the guy who's won both races), last year. Ryan is definitely fast, but being on a new bike/team, I feel like they are at a disadvantage to the Monster/Kawi guys.

If Josh Hansen could ever avoid crashes, he would be right there at the front with those guys. I'd even go as far as saying he would teach Jake Weimer a thing or two.

Low class would be Jason Lawrence. A little agression in racing makes it interesting and I can't say that Reed didn't deserve it. (And I like Reed). There was no way that was going to be a clean pass. Anyways, it's deffinitely shaping up to be a good competitve season. Lites class always has some good tough, fast racing. Alot of people felt that the Supercross class was going to be a walk in the park for Stewart this year but as always, accidents seem to plague him.

Rumors have been swirling that San Manuel Yamaha's James Stewart, the defending AMA Supercross Champion, might have to skip round three of the Monster Energy AMA Supercross Series due to injuries he suffered during his heat race last weekend at Phoenix. According to a source close to the team, however, the rumors are false. As of now, Stewart is expected to race. But James will skip tomorrow's scheduled press conference at Angel Stadium.

Lites were on Speed at 7pm. Weimer is deffinitely looking like he is going to take the West Championship. Didn't get to see the Supercross class as I was at church and didn't DVR it. But saw the results. Dungey is running strong!!!

Well San Fran was yet again an exciting night of racing.
Stewart is out (not sure how long) with a broken wrist. He under went surgery last friday so you can pretty much count him out for the championship this year.

For the Lites, Jake Weimer got 2nd for the first time ever this year and Trey Canard pretty much killed the whole race. You could tell Jake was really bummed out with the 2nd, I think his goal was to go undefeated.

For the 450's, Ryan Dungey yet again started to check out in the beginning of the race only to get cross rutted off a triple and loop out mid air (gnarly crash). Doing so, he gave up a 9 second lead to Ryan Villopoto who took the main event. Dungey was able to salvage a 4th, Millsaps 3rd, and Hill 2nd.

It's a real bummer that Stewart is out but even more so now, the championship is up to grabs to like 3 different riders.

Went to the race and had a great time. A lil colder than at PHX though. Great racing. My wife and I saw Dungey whip over the triple and she said don't celebrate just yet and then Dungey crashed. I think he could have podiumed but maybe was gased or injured. Its deffinitely going to be a good season. I have had the same bone broken that Stewart has and it took me a 5 months to heal after the 1st surgery and then had to have a bone graft 9 months later. He's out for the season in my opinion.

His handlebars were completely jacked up and his clutch lever was facing the ground after that wreck in the main. He could have salvaged 2nd if it wasn't for that.

Feb 1st, 2010, 07:23 PM
Ahh the clutch lever should not have been that big of a deal as you should always put teflon underneath the clamp and leave it just loose enough to rotate with force. The tweaked bars I can see, but Davi was not that far ahead of him. Kudos to salvaging the most points he could though.

I agree the coverage could be better but still, atleast it isnt as bad as it was when ESPN covered sx/mx. The races were televised 2 weeks + after the race and majority of them were on at like 1-4am in the morning. MX/SX is getting more mainstream every year but I doubt it'll ever get the coverage that NASCRAP gets. Were lucky we get next day w/ speed and CBS so no complaints here other that Ralph sheen or whatever his name is a douche bag of a commentator, lol.

"Could be"

You mean "Should be". SX and MX events pretty much sell out at every stadium and track they visit. I'm not asking for a full day event to talk strategics about block passing someone. All I am asking for is the live 2 and half hours of live coverage on a Saturday afternoon / evening to watch one of my favorite sporting events.

There are 4 stations covering NASCRAP all day long when they aren't even racing. Let alone the numerous reruns of Pass Time and the stupid Dangerous Drives marathon they had this last Saturday. SERIOUSLY!!!!! DO WE NEED 10 hrs of a stupid show no one is going to watch?

Speed is a motorsports broadcasting network that should devote the little amount of time to 2 wheeled enthusiasts.

Yes AWESOME racing and great live coverage for once. As I have ridden MX and Desert Racing, It is up to the faster rider to get around the slower rider. The faster person can always find a way around. The section of the track Poto and Dungey were in was a one line switchback leaving the lappers who themselves are battling for position as well in the line. That is racing. I don't care what any pro such as Emig and RC (Who is not the GOAT btw) has to say about it. They are whiners.

agreed, It is the responsibilty of the faster rider to pass safely, NOT for the slower guy to move over.

Not when the slower rider is in the racing line while the two leaders are coming up on them. That's why they have the blue flag with the yellow slash. Carmichael put it best; "That flag means there is a race happening, and you're not in it. Get out of the racing line."

I agree the faster rider should be responsible for safely passing the lap rider, but the lap rider needs to make room when they have had the "gtfo the way" flag being waved in their face 9 corners in a row. :zz2cents:

Jon Jon, that is a part of racing and always has been. They are "In" a race. it may not be for the lead but they are vying for the best position possible. Just cuz you are fast doesn't mean that people have to move. If your so fast you shouldn't be complaining about finding a way around.

I agree to a certain extent, but in this case, the lap riders were not even close to moving up a position, and the sections they were taking up had no room to pass. There wouldn't be a "move-over" flag, if it didn't need to be used.

Yes they are in a race, but it is a simple courtesy when you are being lapped to GET THE HELL OUT OF THE WAY! Plus it is a safety thing. Rookie riders are unpredictable and create a hazard when being passed by incredibly fast riders.

any rider who makes to the night event let alone main event is far from a rookie rider. Even the guy in last place could easily be the fastest guy in his city or state.

No matter what, every guy in front has to get around the same lapped riders. Blue flag or not, the better rider will make the pass and use the line available and still win the race, regardless of the "rule".

I think Stewart is the hungriest he's ever been in his career and I think he could go two ways. One, come out with the most raw speed and completely destroy the competition or two, ride WAY over his head trying to compete with the up n comers and crash out.

RV is riding the same way, with a vengeance. Plus, he's got Aldon Baker on his side now for training, and multiple people have said that RV is coming out stronger than ever this year.

Stewart is the self proclaimed greatest athlete of all time, he's already won all the races before he shows up! :rolleyes:

Saturday was a great preview of whats to come. For the supercross class (450) Ryan Villipoto got a great start, took advantage of it and pretty much lead the whole race and won a1. Ryan Dungey sat in 2nd most of the race and that's where he finished. James Stewart got a horrible start & was in 11 place going into the first turn. He managed to work his way up to 3rd place at very impressive pace and even start closing in on the top2 but ran out of time (laps). Trey Canard (rookie) got 4th and Chad Reed finished 5th. I predict this will be the top 5 all year and the racing ahead of us is going to be insane! Round 2 will be LIVE again on SPEED channel this Saturday at 6:30pm. DO NOT MISS THIS.

James isn't the same James as he used to be. The last 3 laps of the race he was showing flashes of "king james", but even if he didn't go down he was going to get passed by RV.

Like I said, Poto wants it more. He trains harder, rides harder, focuses on nothing but that championship. I think James is just there for the paycheck now.


On another note; I was in the same corner that Canard wadded it up in the heat, and all I have to say is JEEZ! I'm shocked he wasn't hurt.

Pardon my ignorance but where & how does a 350cc bike fit in with the 250cc class and 450cc class?

KTM feels that 450cc is entirely unnecessary, and the 350 is also about 18 pounds lighter. It seems to be working for them back in Europe, as Antonio Cairolli won the MX1 GP championship. I think if anyone is going to do something spectacular on it in America tho, they are going to need to be a hammerhead that doesn't let off the throttle. They have Short and Alessi on the bikes here right now, but neither one of them are going to do anything with it in supercross. I'm curious to see what they can do with it in outdoors tho.

AMA ruling is "up to, 450cc." Doesn't say anything about a minimum. :idk:

Correction from previous post, San Diego was Round 7 (last weekend) and Tomorrow, in Atlanta, is Round 8. This will be broadcast LIVE on SPEED Channel starting at 4:30pm PST. If your a fan, your not going to want to miss this one. Here are the top 5 450 class point standings as of right now.
1) Ryan Villopoto 146
2) James Stewart 143
3) Chad Reed 130
4) Trey Canard 130
5) Ryan Dungey 123

Out of the top 5, Dungey has yet to win a race. Also, this will be Round 2 for the East Coast Lites Series. Should be very entertaining as well!

Hmmmm...SX seems to be following that old formula again lately.

Bubba walks away from the start, and...

A. Crashes and loses
B. Doesn't crash and wins



Not sure what racing you've been watching...So far this season has been the exact opposite in majority of the races.

Ok so this is the 2nd time I've said this and I'm sure I'll say it again this season, But last Saturday night (Round 8 in Atlanta) was by far the best race I've ever watched. Chad Reed and James Stewart duked it out for the whole main event, up until the last lap when this happened:
16912
16913
16914
16915
16916
16917
16918
James leaves the door wide open and Chad jumps right on it and sure enough, both go down. Ryan Villipoto passes them while they are on the ground and takes the win. On the 2nd to last corner of the race, Ryan Dungey passes James and Chad and gets 2nd. Reed takes 3rd and Stewart got 4th. 2011, best season yet!!!!

Points standing going into Round 9
Ryan Villopoto 171
James Stewart 161
Chad Reed 150
Trey Canard 146
Ryan Dungey 145

Round 9 (Daytona) will be LIVE this Saturday on SPEED Channel at 5pm (PST)!!!
