MotoAmerica / Road America 2020 Round 2

  1. Where was he supposed to go, his line. MS made a mistake, plain and simple but I’d bet some good cash money he will also handle it appropriately and like a true sportsman. Mistakes happen, he got in too hot thinking he could make the pass and couldn’t. He probably feels worse than Toni about it (maybe not but you get the point). He’s a class act and I’m confident he will handle the situation as such.
    And congrats to Fong, well done.

    Maybe Matthew thought tony was fong, and was trying to get payback from last round

    (This is a joke in case the serious police try and come bust my balls)

    Yeah I mean because they couldn't have shown him celebrating afterwords and he didn't get enough air time as is. ;)

    Considering the lack of action in the SBK class they need to seize any opportunity for action. And Wyman and Elias were getting it done.

    Oh no, I agree.. I hate it as well.. I want to see the little action there is.

    But I’m also not paying a bunch of money to have my name on a race bike as it crosses the line 1st.... miles ahead of anyone else.

    Problem solved. Keep the sponsors happy and the race fans interested.

    ^This. Or just show the guy right as he crosses the line and then revert back to the action. Take 2-3 seconds, not 10-15 seconds and you miss the action in the last few turns.

    He was in 4th when he went for it. He didn't lose anything.

    Yes he did. He lost one place. But why am I not surprised you don’t understand this obvious situation. Why initiate a risk pass for a position that doesn’t count. The question isn’t what did he gain? We know he gained nothing. The reality is, he didn’t gain a position while increasing risk. But keep thinking otherwise. Derp.

    RACER goes for it, make the pass, while not gaining a position. Yeah, good logic. Good Lord.

    Confirmation bias is strong with this one. Keep talking yourself into going from 4th to 4th is losing a place.

    You watch that move five times and it doesn't change. You can call it a racing incident, but one guy got punted.

    Stupid nascar messed up my watching any of it. I was gone Saturday and my wife was suppose to set saturdays recording, nope she forgot. So I saw nothing all weekend, :mad:
  17. I think racing incident” definitions vary. To me this was a racing incident meaning two guys going for same real estate and one made an error. The key being an error, history of the rider, etc. I don’t think MS was trying to force his way through but got into a position that ended up bad for Elias. I hate it for both guys (and teams) but it happenstance when racing If not they’d all be running ideal laps every lap.

    Tony was up on his feet so fast after that move by Scholtz. The hands-on-hips WTF stance was perfect.

    Supersport continues to be my favorite category to watch. That outside pass attempt by Paasch in the carousel was amazing to watch.

    Can they do picture in picture so that they show the leader cross the line, and the battle for [whatever position] at the same time?
