pretty sure they axed it for this year. I personally liked it, although it is not as exciting as sno-x and i'm sure that it took a hit in ratings when it did air. Its too bad, I thought it was cool to see some long trackers rip "edit for bad language" up the mountain like that.waxman said:SNOXER, Did you hear that there would be no hillcross? I thought I missed it, Wonder why they cut that out.
as much as I hate to admit it. You are right, I think it would've only taken him 1-2 more laps. Tucker was smooth as hell except for that mess up in the woops. I think they keep it short for the fact that only us sledders wanlt to see the long races. When somebody in Orange County, CA is watching it and has never even seen a sled. They most likely have a shorter attention span w/ the sleds. I thought it would be atleast a 8-10 lap final.Davey_Boy said:A 6 lap final? give me a break, those are for heats/qualifiers! not finals!
Morgan got the holeshot, Hibbert chased him down, a few more laps Tucker would have passed Morgan for sure.
6 laps does not do any real justice to who the fastest rider is. For the past two years the rider who got the holeshot has won, why? Because the race is too short for the riders higher skill level to come into play to get into the lead from say a midpack start on a 6 lap race! If it was a 10-12 lap final I think the results would have been much different, mainly IMO Tucker would have taken Morgan for the gold.
Both are professional mot-x racers(or atleast blairs a pro), and it shows. Most racers train with bikes in the off season. But the fastest/smoothest riders in sno-x seem to be full time bike racers as well. They have so much more of an advantage as they keep there mind and body sharp in the "off" season.02800mxzx said:I agree with you guys a 6 lap final *%@? Every single supercross race I have ever gone to has never ever had a 6 lap final!!! I agree Tucker might have taken Morgan in the end but IMO I think Tucker was a bit squirly riding......yeah he might have been fast but there is a difference between fast and smooth and fast like Morgan showed tonight. He just looked like he was doing whatever it took to win which is understandable, however he just looked like a loose canon. I don't know I say all this but you do have to look at that the kid only races once a year! LOL
