    That was good!
    Ken's right there, I dont think he could have done anything about Webbs move in the last turn. Webb is really rolling now, he's gonna be hard to stop unless he crashes out, which is certainly possible for any of them. Roczen is probably the least likely to crash out, he's showing a ton of patience at the moment. Don't know what happened to Eli, I expected him to charge to the box after going down, but he never did..
    Zach had a pretty dismal night too, I'm sure he's disappointed
    Marv has got to be scratching his head wondering what he's gotta do at this point
    Roczen is playing the long game, and that's probably as good a plan as any at this point

    Webb doing that quad into the corner was a sure sign he is willing to take some risk's to land this title, not sure if anyone else is willing to take those kinds of chances.

    That was definitely a good race. I have never been a Webb fan but even I will admit that he looks the best at the moment. I can't figure Tomac out, the guy shows flashes of brilliance and then poof, it's gone. Musquin is just about done at this point, he's been in it for years and just doesn't have it anymore. I don't know if it's age or what but I think his chances are just about over with. As far as Roczen, he's doing what he needs to, he's what? 1 point down in the championship? Webb had a terrible night in the mud and if that happens again while Roczen keeps his consistency the number of wins won't matter.

    The thing with Tomac though is that he generally doesn't come to life until mid-season anyway and by then he's so far behind he can't catch up. IF he can catch this year he isn't too far out of contention, he could still take the whole thing.

    Roger is counting on Coop to be the new Dungy
    Marv is playing 2nd Fiddle again, probably for the last time
    Eli needs consistency
    Ken now has consistently
    Joey gets scared as soon as there's traffic
    What an ending !!!

    Agreed
    I know he's been really quiet about a back injury he's had, he may have tweaked something in his back when he went down? Even with his inconsistency, he does charge like a bull after going down. But he never did. When Brayton passes you with no fight, somethings wrong.
    I couldn't see any problem with the bike. I think your right about mid season charges, we are just getting into that sweet spot, plus the fact that usually if he has a crappy race one weekend, he always KILLS it the next one so next weekend will tell us a lot.

    Yeah that was a hell of an ending for sure!
    Coop is showing a will to fight for it that Ive never seen in him since the 250's
    I think we will see a few races now where they try to tighten the screws on him if he's in the lead and force him to get out over his ski's.
    All that confidence is exactly what you need till the laws of physics bitch slap you into the ground. (hehehehe)
