the redbull tv production was great except the commentators constantly were misnaming and getting the top tier bikes and racers all wrong.  To me the Sherco guys look nothing like the Husqvarna guys.......in gear and bike. Anyway the the show is brilliant and you can simply go to redbull tv and watch it. As usual the camera flattens everything.....

The mix up was a little annoying. Billy Bolt and Graham do look strikingly similar and I think they mixed those two the most. The other was Jonny Walker and Cody Webb who are KTM teammates. Maybe next year they'll put bigger numbers on the plates. 

 

It was a good race. Nice seeing the new winner on the podium and Graham coming back. Maybe next year we'll see Cody up top.

Robert I watched the replay. Your in the know  !!! What percentage of the top riders use a Rekluse clutch  ?? I could not realy tell if they had them or not. Hard to belive they had tires or clutches left ofter the race. Do they pit for tires ??

Like BP said, I don't think any of the top guys use auto clutches. It's all about strong legs and loading the rear with your lrft hand "auto" clutch and with one leg loading while dabbing with the other. Huge balance skills and super strong legs. Gomez was very very impressive , but the old guy showed up as well, just a little late on his charge. Happy for Cody he also had a huge second wind and charged back up to the box.

At the riding clinic the question was posed to Graham Jarvis and he explained you can't get the feel and control you need to be competitive with an auto clutch, but then he continued that he'd never used one. I think I read or saw another comment from a different top pro to the same effect.
