After a reboot of my retired brain, think the local NBC channel quit covering the sport last season. No biggie with Peacock available. I watched first round prtice, then got distracted and forgot to watch 2nd. But according to Instagram Mookie was fast qualifier! I'd love to see his step it up and finish a season. He's been working harder. We shall see.Was about to make this thread and ask who else would be watching. Looking forward to a traditional SoCal opener. Should be an intriguing season with all of the changes.
Sexton needs to do what Mookie did last season. Goal: finish every race. Shoot for 5th NOT first. Just not gonna happen. Take what the night gives you. Winning is a learned skill. You aren't gonna out-speed these guys.Great opening ride by Roczen. Will be interesting to see if he can sustain the performance over a full season. Webb gritty and tough as always. Was very impressed with Anderson until he got Barcia'd. Sexton probably has the most raw speed, but can't yet put full races together. He hung tough though despite the errors.
The 450 class continues to be remarkably deep, and the 250s very thin.
And Musquin is an azzhole. Took Mookie out like a petulant child. If you wreck yourself, what is the point?
I was traveling last weekend, but got the race on DVR. Good to see plenty of fans in the stands.That was dumb and unnecessary, especially since Marv clearly had great pace last night and didn't need to force that pass.
I also wasn't a fan of what Barcia did to Anderson after Anderson passed him clean, but I guess that's Bam Bam for you.
Tomac was very quiet, and has a lot of work to do if he's going to be any threat to Roczen and Webb.
Yep. I was watching YouTube stuff & Twittering.Having a hard time maintaining interest in this 250 class. I hope the East group has more depth. It's nice to see Christian Craig have success after some rough breaks, but it's also weird to see him back in the developmental class.
Anderson looks really good on that Kawasaki
Now that I have Peacock, I might have to pay more attention to Supercross again.Tomac has his mojo back and takes a statement win, passing Anderson to do it. That was an unfortunate incident between Anderson and Roczen. It looked incidental and like a true racing incident, but it was nice to see Anderson take the blame given that Roczen's race was ruined.
Sexton continues to run up front in third. Strong ride for Ferrandis and Malcom was solid in fifth, but a tick off the frontrunners for sure. Webb still looks underwhelming, but somehow is still in fourth only 12 points out. This title fight is wide open.
