I'm looking forward to finally seeing a competitive AMA racing series. Three good riders on three different brands. So who do you think will come out on top Chad, Ricky or Bubba?

If no one gets injured I think it will be:

1. Ricky
2. Bubba
3. Chad

Well the first one was interesting. Great for Honda, bad for Ricky, Bubba and Chad. Something to be said for age over youthful enthusiasm. :lol:

Looks like Bubba's out. Watching him at Anaheim made me wonder if he was the next Ricky Carmichael or the next Magoo Chandler? Too much speed, not enough finish.

Bubba was unlucky. Several people took spills at the same spot on the track in practice and the races. They just didn't fall badly like he did.

I read an article that said he was the only one doing a double in that section of the track. Maybe it was bad reporting?

Well so much for Chad Reed being a threat to Ricky's return to the Supercross thrown.

I'm beginning to have my doubts about James "Magoo" Stewart taking away Ricky's outdoor title also

Well Ricky can wrap it up this weekend I think. I'll give it to Chad he did make it interesting and Bubba is fun to watch.

Confidence and momentum are funny things. :wink:
