Call me crazy and I hate to bash MX, but have you ever heard more excuses for not doing well in another sport. Seriously, count how many times you have heard about someone with "food poisining" or "epstien barr virus" in just the last 2 or 3 years!! Also, do we ever really get the truth about injuries. RC is out of SX and Reed suddenly has a hurt shoulder but (suprise, suprise) will be back just in time for A-1 (everyone knows the world title means nothing). It seems to me that the brands are so worried about us not buying their bikes that they dig deep into the bag of exucses when someone doesn't do well just to make sure we know that "IT'S NOT THE BIKE!" Really, none of us care. Bubba is fast as hell, but how many of you would buy a Kawi? Anyway, this post was mostly in fun, but really it is kind of circus when you think about it.
