  1. RLH either disagreeing with Him, correcting his out of his ass statements or cutting him off made it more obvious how annoying he is. And I’m not a super sensitive guy but the stuff about Mexico and escalante I was thinking wtf. I’m sure if a few people who were offended complained he’d be gone.

    Damn that sucks. He was riding well. If you talk to him, tell him Q and family are bummed for him but glad he seems to be ok. (I’m assuming he’s ok just by the footage we saw on tv)
     
  7. A crash.
     
  8. He rode well but KD and guys up front took it to another level in the heat.

    I haven't gotten further info from the SS race but was watching from the hill on the entrance to 5 when the red flag crash happened. That big highside sent bike and rider up over the crest and would've been completely blind for the following riders. All 4-5+ split bike and body with zero contact. Crashes usually don't phase me having seen so many, but having been on the other side of that hill when Chris Stevenson passed in a similar crash, my heart jumped to my throat. I got choked up and my wife too. The folks around were doing the usual "holy shit!" while we say there on the verge of tears! I haven't read who the rider is but I'd like to give that dude a big "bro hug" thankful he's still with us!

    I believe that was Nolan lamkin. Even on TV my buddy and I could tell that was a very bad place to be

    From what I've heard from others that were in the same turn is that they could hear him yelling in pain after the crash. It looked like a rough landing. :(

    Supersport. So good. Can't believe those 2 didn't come together and hand the win to Paasch.

    Yeah, I was spectating right where he crashed, and could hear him. When I saw where he crashed, I was very worried that he would get hit by following bike. So relieved when they all missed him.

    I think if I was a struggling motorcycle racing provider, I'd let people race who show up to race. What was it 15 or 16 bikes in ss. And what 20 tried to qualify and missed it by a touch.

    The fields are less than stellar, let people fucking race. Especially on a track as big as road a.

    And lap traffic is part of racing. If you are good enough to create the lap traffic, you are good enough to navigate it.

    MA corner workers seem to do a shit job of waving blue flags for the leaders. I’ve witnessed this several times spectating at Sonoma.

    I have no idea if I'm right or not, just guessing that was the criteria.
