crfjedi ....

I'm not arguing with you that the career of a racer is short-lived. I'm stating that I don't believe that RC's career is "winding down". Thanks for the copy and paste btw, I clicked the link earlier and it was already down. Sure, RC is going to have a limited number of years left, but I don't think we will see him start "winding down" for a few more years, after all, he's still pretty young!

They are on Sat's and Thur's. The times vary, I'll see if I can find a page I saved with all of the OLN listings for you. They show the original airing, and when they will re-show them. I'll look for it tonight, as of now, I have a lawn mower and 8 inches of grass just screaming my name!!

Here is my take on it. RC is smart he knows what he has to do to take the points lead and will not relinquish it while healthy/uninjured. That is his maturity and skills along with fitness put together in one package.

Bubba needs a few more years to learn this. He has the skills, he has the fitness, he doesn't have the mental part of the game down yet. That includes the maturity. Once he gets that part of the equation together he will be the next RC. Bubba never had competition in the 125 class, he would fall and still lap 1/2 the field in a win. The 250 class has proven to be a different beast that patience and maturity will solve the injury problems and then the championships will come. I believe they will come to him in due time.

As for the rest Reed and Windham they will be there but my opinion is they aren't in the same class as RC is and Bubba can be.

I don't know how you can bet against RC he has proven that he is the most fit rider on the SX curcit. But I think baring a "No Points" first round by Reed he should be right there at the end of the season. RC has a nack of scoring early, couple that with his consistancy and it's hard to beat. Is Reed or Bubba faster than RC? maybe but the real question is are they faster week in and week out. Should be a great season if no one gets hurt early.

ya rc will win, but if bubba doesnt crash and/or get hurt he could have a good chance now that alot of the rookie sensation pressure is off

Default To hard to say

Well you have to remember if it was not for the first race last year, the year would of been much much closer. But there is no way you can bet against rc, that guy knows what he needs to do and he gets it done. I dont really care who wins, cause i like them all, I just hope it is a close season.

Default First race

Yes i am well aware that it was the same track and everything, and there is no doubt that it was reeds fault for not doing well in that race. Its just that it kinda screwed the season up for the viewing audience. It would of been a lot more exciting had that not of happened. I don't think that the race had as much skill involved as the rest. lots of the people had bike problems. It was more of just who ever could keep it on 2 wheels, which i guess could be a skill. Anyway more than anything i was just bummed because the season was so promising, then after the first and second race(bubba got hurt, or was that the 3rd?) kinda just went sour. Ok well i don't know what i am trying to say, but lets just hope this year there are no miss haps and everyone stays heathy and it becomes the best supercross season of all time.

This was a really odd outdoor season. I know what you mean, I think. I still watched all of the races, but I can say that my excitement was not at levels that it had been at before because of the way the outdoors turned out. Reed being gone for so long, Bubba not being able to keep it together ... and let's not forget that it was a one man show with RC. Before watching each race on tv, you could pretty much make the assumption that we were going to see RC ... then K-Dub ... then most likely Ernie. That didn't make for a very exciting outdoor season at all. I love to watch the sport no matter who's riding ... but I really hope everyone is healthy and ready for a great SX season.

Default Bubba the best?

Well i don't know if i would go out and dare say that bubba is the best supercrosser, he won a few races last year while rc was taking it easy, just looking to keep the title secure. I do think he will races for sure, but at the same time reed was looking just as fast at the end of last year, and i am sure rc is going to bring his game, he always steps up to the plate. bubbbbye
