Supercross this saturday!

Just wondered if any Bellingham crew is going down? I'm late getting tickets but might get some today... It would be fun to catch up with y'all...

I went last year. It was chilly, but dry. Had a great time.

After looking at the forecast for Saturday, I think Chad Reed is getting a bad feeling.

Sounds like the Seattle round will be a mud-fest. In races like that, there will be no winner, just the first survivor. I feel for the mechanics having to deal with the trashed out bikes!

I saw the billboard yesterday and it looks like there are still tickets available. What's the situation at CenturyLink - do spectators get soaked?

I've seen some pretty epic Supercross mud races. Windham won in the worst mud if I recall! Separates the men from the boys...

But, they have changed dirt over the years, and it was a whole lot better the last time there was a mud race.

Yup, 2008 Daytona, which is where that meme I posted is from.

I remember that race, I felt so bad for Reed, he's always been a favorite of mine. This Saturday is gonna suck with the rain & wind that's forecasted. Put a roof on the dam thing, it's Seattle for God's sakes!!

I remember that race. Reed's bike spit water out the exhaust!
The bike was totally done. Sad day for him.

Can't say I was ever sad to see Reed lose. He's had a MONSTER ego, and been a big whiner from forever ago while never failing in coming up with excuses for him not winning...

Here's an interesting article on him though:

The only SC race I went to at Century Link was a mud fest. It was not too pretty fun.

I saw Mike (with the Husky supermoto) has actually got a pres box at the company he's with and was posting pics of working with Blake Wharton's current team IBCorp! Pretty cool.

That was amazing!👌 One of my favorite nights of racing ever!😂🏁 Total carnage, running into each other, blowing radiators, burning clutches, and utter mayhem the ENTIRE NIGHT!🍿😂

It was nearly as good as endurocross and I was stoked to hear Plessinger say it was as good as a GNCC course!

...Of course, that's giving credit to the hard enduro guys who (like himself) make that gnarly stuff look easy!

Watched it at home, felt bad bad bad for old #22. Sounds like retirement is near. Very happy #3 got it again. Then it was off to bed, no drive home for me.
