Supercross 2018

So let’s hear your predictions for this Saturday. Top three, order doesn’t matter. I’m going with Muscan, Anderson, and Tomac for top three.

Tomac, of course.

The Frenchman, muscan is an artist when he's on. Just glad it's back. Some of those rounds were absolute nail biters

Re: Supercross 2018

As usual, Eli Tomac's biggest threat to a championship is Eli Tomac.
Roczen looked really good....especially for a guy that almost had his left arm amputated last year. He will notch some wins this year....I'd put mmoney on it. Barcia and Anderson looked like they could be potential winners this season as well. Musquin ended up building on the momentum he was carrying from the off-season.

I honestly think that Musquin may be running the number 1 plate this time next year, although, these other 4 gents are gonna make it tough. I haven't been this unsure of how a supercross season might go in a very long time and I can't wait to see how it all plays out.

Tomac is toast, Muscan might be too, was pulling for him. 94 is proving how tough he is, impressive comeback. Way to go Husky!

Re: Supercross 2018

The ruts looked treacherous! I hope Musquin heals up. Roczen looked amazing.

You notice the new format is not only a shorter number of races, the whole thing seems to be much more rushed.

Re: Supercross 2018

I thought the 250 main was the best racing last night.

I think Ken Roczen is one of the most gifted riders to ever line up at the gate, but I really think last years crash is still messing with his head, and I completely see why it would.

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...

Re: Supercross 2018

It's starting to look like this season is going to come down to the last person to smash themselves into the dirt. Hopefully, Tomac, Musquin, and Wilson all get healthy soon and back in the mix. Strange that they all went out with shoulder injuries.

Re: Supercross 2018

Plessinger was on FIRE!! Glad to see him up on the top box.

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.
