RE: The Great Race
If I'm going to be totally honest with you guys, I actually got more enjoyment out of watching this clip that Cormanus shared than I have from any MotoGP race that I've taken the time to review. I don't know what it is about road racing but it seems like the higher the level of racing, the more bored I become with it. I've always been far more entertained by watching motocross racing now along with supercross.

No matter the format, if the racing is in the dirt, I just seem to dig it (no pun intended). Case in point:





By the way, this year I've been having a lot of fun watching whatever replays I can find of the AMA Flat Track races. Incredibly impressive effort by the Indian Factory Team (of course I don't believe there were any privateers on an Indian, unless you want to count Roland Sands' quick race off of the stage at Sturgis). Wow.

Philippians 4:8 (NIV)
Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things.

RE: The Great Race
was fun to watch but surprised they didn't get low for aerodynamics.
loved doing that as a kid on a small bike when racing

The best part about growing up in Florida is i didn't have to move here when i got old.
