I attended the S/X in New Orleans saturday night and kept my eye on Ferry. He looked good in a semi until he got off line over a tricky triple and landed on a tuff box and took an almost disastrous spill. What saved him was an inflatable advertising thing*Thor, I think).....it broke his fall. He won the LCQ. He was lapped by Carmichael in the main. Dang! Carmichael lapped Lamson as well. I'm not sure, but Carmichael may have lapped up to about 7th. Windham was 2nd and McGrath fell in the corner that shoots the riders across the starting line straight and Larocket got by. One of the best races was in the 125's. Pastrana and Ramsey, on the 250F, battled for a few laps until Pastrana stuck his pass and then distanced himself gradually. Ramsey took some chances and made up time but his chances took their toll in mistakes and he dropped back for 2nd. Some of the best racing were the pre-pre-qualifyers early in the afternoon. These are the true privateers who tried to pre-qualify for the chance to qualify later in the evening. Michael Campbell tried to qualify in both 125 and 250 with a YZ 125 and a YZ426. He crashed in both of those qualifyers but later qualified in both classes. He was eliminated in the first 125 heat and didn't show up in the 250's. Dang!
