Supercross Daytona SX, dont read if you dont want the race spoiled!

Recommended Posts

Watching tha Daytona SX, i cant beleive Reed bike failed with 3 turns left!?!

Does anyone know what happened to his bike? Looks like he stalled AND THEN BAM, it went up in smoke! Maybe a blown motor? Ricky said he thinks his clutch went out but what did you guys hear or think?

And wow what a mud bath, i think it would be fun to ride on a track like that!:thumbsup:

Looks like his bike seized. In those conditions I am surprised it didn't happen sooner.

i think he burned the clutch and probaly scored the cylinder, when he was trying to get it started again (lol).....there was no compression.

how can someone watch NASCAR after a SX race like that

thats what Ricky was saying. He believed he might have fried the clutch or something.he was kicking it so easily he might have an air leak somewhere.

The entire thread is going to ruin it for someone that hasent seen the race though.

If they dont wanna know what happened then dont read it?

Reed kept blasting through that one long lake where the water was up to the number plate lap after lap. Everyone else went wide on that particular turn for good reason. I'm surprised it lasted as long as it did. With a 60+ second lead he shoulda backed off for the last lap or two.

you gotta feel bad for reed. even though he made a couple questionable moves off track at the beginning, he still had a 58sec lead when his bike failed.

Very true, i dont know why he felt the need to go inside on that turn with 3 foot of water. Not only does it slow you down but it puts water in the air box and just gives the rider a shower.

yea he should have taken it easy for sure! What a bummer to go up in smoke with a 62 second lead with a couple laps to go! His facial expression was beyond pissed

I wondered why he did not try to start pushing it. It would have been a bitch, but he did not even try. Not too bad a finish though for not finishing the race.

do you think it was caused by the motor sucking water? Could killed the plug and just swamped it?

Cuz they rode through water the entire race, i know some of it had to have been pulled into the intake system!

Didn't it look like Reed flipped off his mechanic when he was kicking it over after it fried? If so, how childish to take it out on his team. While he rode fast, and that would be a hard way to lose, karma will get you. It looked to me that he cut the track THREE times, in the first few laps.

Reed is a duma$$ he shoulda backed off and quit hitting the water like he was, he either sucked it full of water or fried his clutch. I was at Milleville for the mudder he just makes pooor decisions when the conditions are tuff.

Ya it looked to me like he made some gesture to his mechanic and when he did that it pissed me off to no end:mad: It was NOT his mechanics fault. Did you see that big freaking puddle he slammed through right before his bike started to backfire? He sucked water. He was his own dumba$$ fault. And for him to make a move like that to his mechanic is the stupidest thing he coulda done. Yes hes a good rider and had a huge lead but he is the biggest loser in my opinion :thumbsup: Windham deserved it. Hes a hard working, classy guy unlike Reed. The only reason Reed has ONE title is that Ricky wasn't there. Biggest loser EVER in my book.

      Garrett Poucher and Skyler Howes of Garrett Offroad Racing are headed to Dakar!  These US privateers are headed there for their first times but Skyler is fresh off a victory at last week's Baja Rally, won the Sonora Rally in March and this team placed third in the Baja 1000.

      They have a fundraising link set up and could use your help.
      I raced with Garrett at Baja Rally last year and then both of them at Sonora and was honored to pit with them as well.  They're both super guys and work their assess off.  I think they both have good chances of not only finishing the 11 days of Dakar but placing well.
      They're doing some rally training events this Sat, Oct 20 in Santa Clarita, CA and then another Oct 28th in St. George Utah so if you've ever considered learning rally raid navigation, this is your chance!  It's a lot of fun too.  More info on that at the link.

      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 ?

      Growing up, seeing motovans at the track was possibly one of the coolest things.. while I was sleeping in my singlecab pickup. But hey, at the time, in highschool, my truck was cooler than some van. Now at this "age" 24... a van is quite a dang good idea, so I started looking. After a few facebook pots, a buddy of mine knew someone who had a 2001 E350 Passenger van sitting, and would get me a price. he told me it needed a radiator, and the spark plug blew out of cylinder 4 (common 5.4 triton issue). A few days go by, and he calls saying I can have it for FREE! they just needed it gone! So, I go out there with a friend of mine who has a 30ft gooseneck, and some starting fluid to make sure I don't get in too deep... we cant get it to fire without starting fluid, and ruled it out to a fuel pump. We pull the van on the trailer, stop by the parts store, and are headed home.


      The van was sitting stationary for 4 years... and smelled like it. but we'll get back there.. We dropped the tank, having to cut one of the tank straps and emptied the 4 year old fuel, put a new fuel pump in it, about 5 gallons of premium race fuel (fast and furious), and she fired up.  Next was the spark plug issue, I tapped the threads, and installed a helicoil along with new plug and coil pack, and we were good. Later I replaced the radiator after flushing the coolant system.

      The next day, we pulled out everything behind the first row bench seats, to include the headliner, rear AC duct, and side panels. Had to cut out the old seat belt mounts, and reinstalled the last bench where the first bench originally resided, since it was longer, but a few inches back to have optimal leg room. Then came the wall install... after lots of measuring once and cutting twice... I got it all figured out, and had the wall installed, then yellow stuffed "expanding foam" around all sides to ensure I wouldn't have fuel fumes in the cab. Finally I installed some flooring, just to give the bare metal some protection.
       
      After that, I was king of burned out on the van, before I even used it. She sat in my driveway for months before I was ticketed for having an unregistered vehicle parked outside.. gotta love florida.. I posted it forsale for a few days, then decided I would getRdone.

      So, off to the DMV, registered, and custom plates reading "MOTOVAN". Picked up a heavy duty cargo lock, fuel treatment, tons of black ice "little trees", and some R-134 to recharge the AC. She was making her first trip to the track that weekend!

      We changed the oil, 1,000 miles and 3 years overdue... only 2qts came out.. and sea foamed the green monster. After driving all over town, I parked in the driveway for a second, only to try to move it, and nothing on start up... not even after a jump.. so back to the parts store for a starter. After one of the worst starter jobs ever, she was cranking again. I figured we were problem free... but not before a brake line failed, and had to replace that guy, in order to take her to the track in 2 days!

      Finally! we were all clear, and we loaded three bikes into the van, and we were off! Two bikes is preferred.. but three worked, juts had to put most of the gear in the cab. Was a great day of riding, before a buddy crashed and ended the day with a concussion and a few compressed vertebrae..

      The van made another trip out this past weekend, and developed a new misfire, that ill be taking care of this week, and rechargeing the whole AC system since ill be sleeping in it this weekend for my first race in years!

      I will add some photos off my phone in a bit, until then, here is my youtube channel I created for the motovan!

      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?
