No, that is not implicating James... I can’t take some of you seriously.

A couple weeks back when we saw James unable to line up for round-two of the series, I waxed on about how I hoped we’d see him back healthy this series. I was genuinely concerned that all the head trauma from years of pushing the speed(and helmet capabilities) to the limit and beyond was going to become a debilitating roadblock for James.
I’ll be the first to admit that I, like many fans, have found myself respecting Chad Reed more and more as he gets older and continues to mature. He’s honest and shows no regard for creating a line of separation between perception and reality. Chad Reed’s evolution has been on an ascent for years and appears to continue that pattern as 2016 continues to unfold.
There was just something in the air leading into the 2016 Supercross series.
I’m not trying to be poetic, not in the least. There literally was something gyrating in the ether of… dare I say it? The Universes. (Thanks Tony). Something had me more amped than I have been in any year in recent memory for this SX opener. It wasn’t simply the “deep field” or “parity” which have been buzz words relating to the 450 class for the last handful of years. It was something else.
Shit, it’s still here. It’s that feeling when a collective consciousness is anticipating something happening. Something big.
