Dowdies awesome. One of the greatest guys you'll could ever meet. And he has a ton of fun and does well every time he enters.

I sure wish Doug Henry could have been there, as well. I heard that he was on the minds of plenty in attendance; special Troy Lee limited edition helmet, etc. :(

My hat is off to R.C.! :boss: :worship:

Now please, Roger DeCoster, ruin Bubble's season by offering Ricky whatever $$ it takes ($2M + ??) to stay and finish out the season! :p

If Ricky keeps this up I wonder if he will finish the series and have another championship under his belt.

I would LOVE it if RC rides the whole season and wins every national!

Looks like Townley and RV will be battling all season for the Lites title.

Ricky has 147 National wins (MX and SX) now. He'll have to win the last 3 races he enters to get to his goal of 150. It's going to be tough. Stewart is going to be better on the hard-pack tracks, and I expect him to win an overall against RC this year. So maybe RC will add a race or two to his schedule to get to 150? I doubt he'll do the whole season.

RC will not do any more races than he has commited to.
How about GL staying with JS in the second moto? I never would have guessed that one! It makes me almost want to rethink my opinoins of GL.

But we can always HOPE, right? :nod:

Think of what it would be worth, publicity-wise, to Suzuki, & all of his sponsors, if he would reconsider.... Especially now that the Nascar media is ALSO paying some attention to him.

Money talks, right? And Ricky may well need lots of dough to help finance his car racing career. Just ask Jeff Ward, Eddie Lawson, and others, that have tried to make the switch!

As much as we would all (or at least most of us) like to see RC stick around, let's not forget that he is also committed to running a set number of car races this year. Continuing in MX longer than he has already planned would probably be in direct conflict with his future plans and other contractual obligations. What would it say about him if he went back on his promises to the MB2 team so he could ride more MX? He has sponsors there to consider now as well. I don't think that's the kind of man he is. I do believe that there are a couple of sponsors (Monster for instance) that are following him over.

RC really seems to have JBS's number this year outdoors... It is sad that he isn't going to do a full season this year... I'll be happy to see JBS win his first mx national championship this year, but it will be considered a win by default if RC pulls out early...

Positive? Who does JBS HAVE to beat to win the title? Remember a couple years ago when RC did the same thing with Reed? What did he lose to Reed, 6 in a row? Who knows, maybe JS can't (suddenly) run with RC, or, he's actually smart enough to avoid hanging it out and risking the title for no reason other than ego? Just a thought.
