Mayday Mayday! Riders down!

May and June were not to kind to the sport of motocross. Particularly, front-runners of Ryan Villopoto and Mike Alessi, both out with Knee injuries. Didn't Chad Reed's best friends girlfriend's sister's uncle date Tonya Harding??

Either way it is a major bummer for the 2009 Season. Everyone was so super pumped on the all out war that was going to take place in 12 various battlegrounds across the country. Only San Bernadino in California got to see 800 and 2 go at it. And Sacremento and Wortham were the only ones fortunate enough to see Alessi "doin work."

Whoever wins the title, the earned it. Part of racing is consistency. The beauty of organized racing is there are no ifs ands or butts about it. Whoever has the most points after 24 motos is the champ. I will be more pissed than a gay man in California after a proposition 8 voting day if I hear a bunch of the usual bullshit when a top guy gets injured. "Reed didn't earn it because Bubba wasn't there." That kind of nonsense. This is racing, the most pure form of competition known to the human race.

Cliff took some great pictures from Albany last week!
