Clueless, Arlington 3: Is This a “Must-BLANK” Situation?

The last couple of weeks have proved that if you give a holeshot to a rider with ‘Cooper’ in their name, that rider makes it a pretty boring race. Arlington 2 proved that for Mr Webb, while Arlington 3 (too soon to call it A3?) showed that Justin is the cream of this talented ‘west’ coast crop. I hope neither take offense that it’d be better, if they start around fourth place when the series resumes in Atlanta for another *ahem* residency, but truly, that is what us fans want.

  • Serious question, did anyone think Roczen would hold off Webb for the whole race?
  • Other than RC, I mean
  • If ever there was a “must-BLANK” situation, that was it
  • The 250 race was pretty damn boring…
  • Except for Hunter launching into the nets
  • Which they actually showed on replay during the race (mainly because nothing else happened)
  • It is nice when a positive step for rider safety works though
  • Not a fan of the usage of the word ‘residency’
  • Speaking of fans… where was Rutledge?
  • Was he too busy doing 15-minute monologues on other podcasts?
  • Why has it taken so long to get a decent set of whoops
  • Although they could still be longer
  • I appreciate that Monster needs to be in the broadcast every 3.7 seconds but a split-screen showing a “battle” for 8th between the Yamaha riders while Roczen, Webb, Tomac and Barcia are going at it?
  • Definitely not needed
  • Besides, you’ve got Todd Harris saying the word every mid-sentence
  • It seems wrong that Coty Schock only gets mentioned when he crashes, despite getting good starts
  • I don’t really think Sexton can be blamed for Webb winning
  • Webb was just being Webb
  • Before the final west coast round, can the AMA make sure to penalise the top riders so that Cooper, McAdoo and Lawrence are on the same points?
  • Two weekends off, are you kidding me?
  • It’s almost like we want the riders to come into a race fresh or something?!


  1. @Ross – you must be new to this column. Take into account the name of it, re-read the things listed, and deduce where all these might’ve come from. And then read it with an English accent, as Bulmer actually has. It definitely adds to the humor.
