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.

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.
