Supercross What was cunningham doing?

Recommended Posts

Nice way to screw Tomac out of going for the title. Total BS being involved in that battle, Let those guys go heads up to determine who wins the title.:thumbsup:

Yeah, I paid to see a race. I didn't pay to see people lay down when they're right in the middle of the battle. That was the best race of the night.

It was hard to watch, I was screamin at Sealy, then Cunningham!! But I certainly don't fault either of them. I actually hold Sealy responsible for Tomac not winning. Tomac gets past Sealy clean, he pulls away and wins and Cunningham isn't in a position to park him. I don't blame Sealy, either, he's a winner and there to race. But he still changed the race and season for Tomac!! Poor kid, I think he took it pretty hard. He could TASTE the #1 Good on Tickle for not giving up.

Sure it's racing but those kids are all buddies with Tickle and they could have let the race play out with him and Tomac.

At the end of the day Tomac is the one with the real future and the rest of them can look forward to being back marker riders once they get to the big bike class.

It was heartbreaking to watch... I felt the same way, Cunningham/Seely raced Tomac so hard and then let Tickle right by. Poor kid...

Fortunately for Tomac his future looks pretty damn bright. My issue is they obviously slowed their pace and held up tomac and then the homo hugout on the jump told the story. If I was only a fly on the wall at the honda meeting. I know they dont ride for the same "team" but in essense they do. They both represent Honda and Seeley cost honda a title.

That's why Seely pulled an 8th and an 11th this year in the 450 class with a week of testing, and Cunningham got a 4th last year in Vegas on a 450. :thumbsup:

Might wanna look up your facts there pal before you go making comments.

I suppose with an outcome like that the conspiracy theories will abound, but let's face it - it was a points paying race, and Cunningham, Seely and everyone else would still be going for purse money, bonuses etc. The fact that it's the last race of the season doesn't make it any different.

If Tomac was good enough he should have gotten past, got a better start or done whatever takes to get the points.

I'd expect any kid in the Lites class to get on a big bike and finish "OK" on a chance ride.

Tomac will be a top rider, the rest of them will replace the Shorts and Tedescos of the world.

You statement was good until....

I was pretty pissed about them holding him up. And if you dont think Tomac will have a great career then you are not a student of the sport. He improves every ride. Calm headed and smooth, picks very good lines out doors much like RD5. Cunningham is a great rider as well but he is more often in the back then in the front. This is Tomac's first SX season, he will be fine. If anything it should make him want it more.

I'm sure Tomac will have a great career, never said differently. I meant if he was good enough in that particular race, knowing what he needed to do.

That said, two points is a small margin to be doing into the decider. Unless you are way out front, many things can happen that can cost you two points or more.

Cunningham was "racing"... He wasnt a lapper and was battleing. He knows the game. He just better realize that no special grace will be given to him if he is ever in Tomac's shoes.

      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?
