    I've been watching it this year and I'm loving it. Some race get dull pretty quickly, but some have been outstanding. I like to cheer for Chad Reed, and since my son's nickname is Tickles, I find myself taking an interest in Tickle as well.

    Really, I'm just enjoying watching people do what I would never dream of doing.

    I started watching this year and had no favorite. I looked to see who was riding for Honda, figuring I'd just root for them. That hasn't happened thanks to Eli Tomac. He's just too fun to watch that I can't help it. This last race was really exciting.

    Big finale coming up. Tomac seemed to lose confidence last week, but has won more races than almost anyone ever
    Dungey just never misses a podium. Tortoise and hare!

    You could tell Tomac was off his game in his semi. I think you got it right, Hank. Dungey is so consistent that he'll probably finish at least high enough to keep the points lead. Still exciting...thanks for the thread, I'd never have gotten into this without it.

    I had to record it due to other obligations, but I did check the results. I see Dungey did his typically consistent ride and got just enough points to win overall. Tomac has to be looking at that Salt Lake recording and kicking himself over the fall and the run off the course.

    Plus, if Dungey's teammate, Musquin, hadn't let him pass last week, a 6 point lead wouldn't have been enough.

    Well, my recording ended with two laps to go.
    I managed to see most of the rest on the internet.
    It was indeed exciting.
    I think the double level of everything - race v. season, made it especially exciting.
    It looked like Tomac was seriously thinking of just crashing into Dungey to see what would happen.
    When Tomac is on he is so fast. He reminds me of the moto gp rookie Zarco, who rides right at the edge of disaster all the time.

    It will be repeated tonight, so I may record it again, or at least the last ten minutes.

    Apparently Ryan Dungey retired yesterday. Pretty good way to go out.

    Indeed. Amazing that at only 27 he has done so much.
