Supercross!!

Anybody watch last week's first race? Some great racing, Tomac fast, but crashed, Roczen looking healthy and fast, Musquin on a roll! Tomorrow in Houston, TX, which is strangely a West coast race while Arlington, TX is East coast, although farther West than Houston?! Malcolm Stewart will be riding for JGR Suzuki to replace Justin Bogle, who was injured just before Anaheim 1. Starts at 5pm on FX1!

I can see Marvin taking it this year. Should be some good racing throughout the year though.

Marvin was out for the 450 main in Houston, he crashed and hurt his shoulder in his heat race. It looks like a race of attrition in the 450 class. Tomac, Wilson, Musquin out. Anderson won the Houston round, Roczen second. Bam Bam Barcia took another third. Unless those first two have some bad races, one of them could take the championship. Tomac is down 50 points, Musquin down 25. Musquin went from 1st in points to 10th after Houston - OUCH! It's hard to dig out of the holes those guys are in, unless other top riders have bad luck, too.

Back to Anaheim next week, we'll see what shakes out.

Ok, back when I was really into supercross, it was alays Reed and Stewart far in the lead. Potto would sometimes get up there with them. Of course Stewart would ride for first or nothing, crashing out many times. It seemed Potto would win only if the other two were having a bad day. Carmicheal was a top guy too. Everybody else seemed to be second tier. Of course there is much more to the story including: health, age, training. I just dealt in their material stuff, not their training so in that part I am out of touch. Most peeps have their own opinion and a lot of the industry guys have varied opinions too.

My question is this; Who would actually win if all of these guys were to go head to head in an imaginary race where they were all at the top of their game, who would be the fastest?

I would say Tomac (if he stays on) or Roczen, but...?

I want to say Bubba Stewart. But that's the illogical sensationalist in me. When he was riding well, he was faaast!

I imagine we can compare track speeds at Anaheim and whatnot but tech has changed and tracks change too.

Reed was good, but he truly is a dick in real life so the illogical sensationalist In me sees him as the Hannah Barbara Dick dasterly.
