    AMA Daytona Sportbike... SPOILER & Discussion

    Did anyone else see the last race @ Barber? What do you guys think? I think Danny was out to take Josh out the whole race, 3 times he pushed him wide, once looking at him while he's parking it in the corner, then the last time when he came up in the inside and knocked Josh off his bike and losing the championship for both of them.

    Dirty riding by Eslick. I had no idea that little redneck deusche was such a dangerous rider. I've been watching motorcycle racing for a few years now and I've seen some pretty hard passing done by guys like Xaus and Yates but nothing that seemed deliberate. Just hard riding. Those passes eslick put on herrin looked as though they were done with the premeditated intention of taking herrin out. I hope the AMA strips eslick of his points and license.

    +1. AMA needs to penalize him some way, even if it's just a token public slap on the wrist, or else everyone is going to have the impression it's ok to ride like a dick.

    Well, that's one way to look at it - lol.

    Clinton Sellers was suspended from the New Jersey races for a lot less agression on the track. I'd be willing to bet the Eslick has to sit out the race at Daytona next March.

    Herrin let Eslick get into his head. I think both those guys need to mature a bit.

    I was glad to see Cardenes get the championship. He's a class act.

    Stupidity should be painful.

    At my house. Is this a trick question?

    Yeah, I hope Eslick gets some penalty for that maneuver. Very deliberate and uncalled for. Way beyond aggressive riding.

    paybacks are a bitch
