If the pass Anderson made on him last night would have been attempted last season, it would have been "Game On", but last night he just let him go. Maybe he took a look at Dungey's play book and realized podium points are a whole lot better than the risk of crashing out.

It's still very early in the season, but I'm not sure what to make of Barcia. He's riding like I had expected to see him do his rookie season in the 450 class. I hope he continues at this pace the remainder of the season, that'll keep it fun.

Same thing with Cooper Webb. Not sure what's going on with him either, as I was really expecting great things from him in the 450 class.

Hopefully Tomac and Muscan are going to be okay and back at the gate sooner rather than later. The deeper the talent the better...




...
I'm with you on Webb, was really expecting him to come a running this year, kid's fast and stable on the 250, just seems it hasn't followed him to the 450. I think he is too concentrated on other riders instead of his own ride.

Anderson seemed to pass Roczen at will. Roczen is still fast but I agree the physical may be playing into his ride, especially the limitations if any with the hand.

I would like to see Tomac and Muscan back out there. I think there are 5 - 6 guys this year with legitimate shots if they can stay in the race and get their head on straight.

And yeah 250's was some pretty good racing. Plessinger Looked good last year and better this year.

450's are a crap shoot, don't know who will be on the line from week to week. I'm pulling for Anderson this year.
I remember riding a couple hare scrambles back in the day with Aaron's dad. He comes from good stock.

He's an impressive rider. I hope he continues to do well in the 250's and then carries it over to the 450's.





Back to California tonight. I'm going with two easy picks, Anderson and Roczen. For the anybody's guess, I'm going to stick with Baggett...

Re: Supercross 2018

Tomac 1st in timed practice today, Marvin and Dean are back racing tonight
as well

Should be an interesting night with the 3 main event format

18 riders qualify in timed practice then the final four from the LCQs that will run during the day so the night show will be 6 main events 3 for 250s 3 for 450s

Race day live will have the LCQs as well as timed practice online

I forgot about that. I was just glad to see them do away with the semi's from last year.

Re: Supercross 2018

It will be interesting to see Barcia and Anderson go at it ... maybe Bacia will take Anderson out like Anderson has taken so many others out.

I saw Plessingers dad race in the Shnf back in the ..... very impressive. He has great style and can ride in the mud.
