Qualifying crash

Recommended Posts

Did anyone see who the rider was that crashed in qualifying (causing a read flag) it happened right in front of me, but I could not see the numbers (and they put him on a back board so I could not see the jersey) I think it was a B rider.

Cody crashed in the LCQ... there was a different one earlier in Qualifying... nasty in the rhythm section.

My bad.  I heard that Adam C crashed in qualifying but I didn't see it.

It must not be a well known rider, cause I can not find any news about it. it happened about 20 ft from me.

I am just curious what he hurt.

Qualifying crash was Adam Gulley! Broken femur!

Damn.   I wish him a speedy and full recovery.

It seems like I am reading about a lot of broken femurs now.  It this because of knee braces?

Aaron Gulley, not Adam. Sucks big time. Luckily (if you can call on luck in these situations) it was a clean break and he's already had surgery and is at home.

I was right there when Adam cart wheeled his bike. it didn't look good. and then a second rider was carted off as well...

but what I want to know is who was the rider in the 450 qualifying that was on the husky 2 stroke....that guy was way out of his depth, I swear he almost crashed 5 times in one lap. he even did a superman seat grab just going through the whoops !

not that I could do any better, but it was painfull to watch

Supercross is like a German whore; you may love it, but she don't always love you back.

Yeah it was Ronnie Ford. I like 2 strokes, but they just aren't competitive in the way tracks are designed now days. Steinke could pull it off in the nationals, but I just can't see it in supercross.

SX doesn't have to love you, she just has to obey.  When she stops obeying it's time to pull out.
