A1 first practice report:


Chris Cooksey

A1 1St practice/qualifying report:

 

Due to the rain, free practice was cancelled which forced the riders into an urgent situation; use this session to learn the track. If something happens during the session, they quickly became a spectator. The track was covered during the rain which caused lime on jump faces making it a dusty session. Ken Roczen was so good, and definitely the fastest with ease. Trey took a serious crash in the rhythm section, but is alright. Dean Wilson looked good and hit a triple triple that I didn't see anyone else hit, although lap time didn't show him any love.

 

For me the real action was in the 450 B practice where Jimmy Albertson, Nick Schmidt and Adam Enticknap all looked fast. My co-worker at WPS Kyle Gills had a huge crash, but re-mounted and turned in some good lap times. This track is tricky, it looked like perfect grip but had hidden slick spots where water either leaked onto or wasn't covered the last couple days. When the night moisture rolls in, watch for guys to lose their front wheels quite a bit.

 

In the 250 class Plessinger had the fastest time, but Justin Hill looked more consistent. If I had to bet right now he would be my favorite. In the 250 B session Fly Racing Rookie Bradley Taft looked smooth and fast. His time would have put him right around the 10th spot in the A session and he seems to have more in the tank. Get him on your Fantasy teams.

      Hi Guys ,
      I'm in Australia and i am going to stream RBSR online , Red Bull site says start is 11:30 AEST ( Australian eastern standard time ) on the 20th Saturday
      which i don't think is correct . if it is on the 20th of Oct in the U.S at 1:30pm (racing must be about 4-5 pm) start on Saturday and Australia being 17 hours ahead wouldn't that make it a Sunday the 21st broadcast ?

      2019 Supercross season is near. Your "flavor fave" just took the MEC after being waved bye for the win.
      Same bet as last year..... $100 max customized jersey of your choice. First come first serve, but your ass BETTER pay up as others have to Mongo.
      I'm only taking the first "real" bet that approves my wager.... Tomac vs. the field 2019 SUPERCROSS. . He wins, you win. He looses, I win...... Who is the first taker? Anybody have the testicular fortitude?

      A friend of mine, BAHA, you know him, had a very good point I never thought of. All of these big $$ race purses are insured. Monster pays on insurance a percentage and should someone win the MEC as they did last night, the insurance company pays it out. 
      Now.... Had Savatgy just FUBAR'd in the sand like he should have to make the pass convincing that would be one thing. But since he was seen looking back several times to see where Tomac was at, caught slowing on camera on the backside of the track AND caught waving Tomac by to take the win.... I'm interested to see if insurance pays out or calls it a form of Insurance Fraud?
