Supercross First East coast lites round....Who takes it?

Recommended Posts

The east coast lites are stacked! Who's gonna win the first round? List your top 10 contenders in order.

(Note: You must have some knowledge of what is going on and who will be racing the series. For example: If you are thinking of listing riders like Villopoto, Lawrence, Langston or others that are in a different class or different coast. You don't know enough to create a legitimate top 10.)

1) Broc Hepler (hands down, if hes healthy)

2) Tommy Hahn (factory honda thinks so)

3) Ben Townley (podium wildcard, inexperienced in SX)

4) Mike Alessi ( could win or could struggle, depends on whoop size)

5) Brett Metcalfe ( pro circuit bike, enough said)

6) Ryan Dungey (hopefully RC and RD have whipped him into shape)

7) Zach Osbourne (he rode well in canada)

8) Darcy Lange (he got the last pro circuit ride, cant count him out)

9) Jeff Alessi (I like KTM, had to put all their riders in my top 10:ride: )

10)Broc Tickle (won loretta's and rode well in canada)

Without a doubt Broc hepler

He took a hard crash in practice and is questionable for this weekend. If he is healthy enough, he would be the best bet.

Hepler, no doubt!

Zach Osbourne will definately be a person to watch. As will Ben Townley.

Bean pole Alessi will probably win a few holeshots, but eventually will get passed and parked by more than a few riders.

As long as Mike "Whining" Alessi doesn't win!!!! I'm pulling for Hepler after his struggles last year.

I think Metcalfe is out also for the first few rounds, that is why Darcy was asked to join the team.

Tommy Hahn, gotta pull for a fellow Kansas rider:thumbsup:

How is he doing?

I have watched him at CycleRanch race a few time and been rooting for him since he is in Texas now

He raced Travis P and Metzger and uhhh Allessi twice there

Sweet! The Tivo will pick them up...

Not sure who to pick for top finishers now that Hepler and Metcalfe are out, but I like Ryan Dungey's story so I'll be sort of rooting for him. I do think Alessi could do well, but I'm not a fan.
