    Another dismal weekend off for us spectators. But MXGP has been awesome this year. Watched Czech 250 Moto2 this morning and it was great! Bummer that we only get 2nd motos unless you take it in the ass for $130 or whatever for their POS coverage (video quality). Paul Malin and really grown on me - I used to cringe.

    Stankdog on the Garmin 360 cam! Last time we will see him until he gets lapped, but still cool.

    Eric, have you been watching Canadian MX on MavTV? Sucks that it isn't in HD but man they have been going at it! More entertaining that the Nationals.

    Newp. I should look around for it. MavTV SD on DirecTV is unwatchable though. I think SD gets worse and worse the larger your screen size is. I have been watching MXGP though, and the racing is great. But this morning I was just marveling at how much better the video quality is for the nationals. They have so many cameras and we are watching close-ups around the entire track. It's pretty awesome.

    Is that one guy still switching around between a 2-stroke and a 4-stroke?

    * Dramatic day even though not many passes
    * Props to the New York fans - staying out there then screaming their heads off in the downpour
    * Plessinger is (unfortunately) looking like a crasher
    * 450 moto2 some guys were still launching off of Skyshot in the goo. Huge balls.

    That was insane. The difficulty level of riding in that sort of mud is mind boggling.

    I just don't know how they can still do those big jumps in that mud.

    There was that one drop-away jump to a downhill then a 180 left. Marvin flew off the drop-away then his suspension bounced him up and he had to get stopped for the 180. Every time I thought he was going to wipe out. He did it every time!

    Yes it just seams impossible to do considering the how slick the mud was everywhere else. I suspect the landings on those jumps pounds the dirt in so there's better traction, but still amazing skills and courage.

    That was right around when they red-flagged 450moto1, I think.

    Be sure to watch the Marvin part of the interview, he's a very cool guy for sure.

    In the same clip, it looks like Wilson had a tearoff over his rolloffs for the first turn.

    I heard Langston say during the race that riders will sometimes case jumps on purpose during mud races to knock all the mud off their bikes. Has anyone heard of this actually being a thing, because it just seems a little silly to me.
