Supercross The unnoticed rider @ MEC?

Recommended Posts

With all the buzz around RV, RD, and Mike Allessi, seems not much being said about Bret Metcalfe. I think he has shown vast improvement, and are probably looking at possibly some podiums from him this coming SX season. Through out the motocross season, he seemed to keep getting stronger, and though not enough to take home the million, he laid down some good laps last weekend.

Outdoors is his stronger suit, but he's looking more comfortable in supercross.

I think he'll still have trouble breaking the top five consistently, with RV, Stewart, Dungey, Reed and hopefully Canard being in the hunt. But, he did look stronger last weekend.

Kyle Chisholm I mean who the hell is that?

I think Davalos in 4th OA was most impressive

Isn't Chisholm still with Motoconcepts? far from pure privateer

but how about Nick Wey in 7th OA as a real Pure Privateer

Surprised no one mentioned that on Sunday his mechanic was found dead in his (mechanic) hotel room.

It was Byrne's mechanic that was found in his hotel room.

My roommate and I made a last minute decision to go to the MEC. What a great time. The racing kind of sucked with the RV domination but RC and McGrath did a great job on the track.

Moto Concepts?

His Dad went with him to Vegas. We ride with them (Kyle & Cody) a few times a month. If that makes me wise so be it.

Do a little fact checking before you give out bad information.
