Whats your thoughts after 2 races?

I still think RV will be the guy to beat. Barcia is real fast but I am afraid he is going to make some mistakes that will slow him down.

Canard is my biggest surprise!!!I hope he has a great season. Milsaps is a surprise also, but not sure he will end up in the top 5

Not sure about Dungey yet

JS, Reed, Kdub, Grant seem to have lost a step or 2.


RV
Canard
Barcia
Dungey
Reed
JS

Still too early, but that starting turn at Phoenix really sucked.

I think Eli Tomac might be the fastest guy on the planet right now but he's stuck on 250's for a few more rounds. Hopefully he will clinch early and move to the big bikes where he belongs. Real good genetics in that family...

I like RV in the 450 class although his bike doesnt seem to be the advantage it has been and he's as likely as anybody to crash himself out of it.Barcia is flyin! I like Dungey next, Milsaps and. Canard after that. Reed is finally a step slower and Bubba is dinged up.

For some strange reason, my DVR kept replay'n the Monster Energy Girl strutt'n across the starting line. Dayumm FINE!!

Announcers kept say'n the Kawi's were having "teething" problems with the new front suspensions, (new mfg, and air suspension too), so maybe that's been RV's problem. Dungey doesn't look hungry at all, Canard has been a real surprise so early in the season, and James may have finally started listening to his inner self, that crashing just plain HURTS! I think all you guys have the top 5 correct, just maybe not in the final finishing order.

RV still seems to ride in control even with the couple tosses he's had, JS and Reed I think are past their prime. Dungey looked good the first week but that heat toss probably banged him up, he did take a hard spill. Milsap is on Q along with Barcia.

Tomac is untouchable it seemes, Roczen just seems to be the next best rider and isn't going to think about first while Tomac is out there.

I would say JS and Barcia are done for the top 5.

RV is still the man to beat.

Millsaps and Canard are still top 5 guys..Dungey is in survival mode, just making the best of an Orange bike.

Agree RV2 is the man, but Dungeys problems have nothing to do with his orange bike. He was second in qualifying behind Bubba and ahead of RV2 so the orange bike gets around the track just fine. Decent starts would help. Bummer to see Bubba go down like that, he'll probably get his knee done now. Barcia's had a rough couple weeks, but he can effect the points race for sure as a spoiler. Love seeing Millsaps having so much success, seems like a cool kid. Short proves it's all about the athlete, running a stock bike (Ride Red )off the showroom floor to a top 10 finish.
