Anonymous, On Motocross Step up
OK, I actually feel asleep at my keyboard during motocross step up. I had a busy X day yesterday. We had skate mid day where Chris Cole repeated and some say Greg Lutzka got robbed. I’d like to point out I called Tommy Sandoval finishing 5th. Then late last night after BMX big air and step up to boredom we had the skate est trick. apparently Cole snagged that one as well. Word on the street is that best trick got a late start due to the Barry Bonds BS. Not sure what went down but from our eyes on the scene there were 5 tricks then 44 consecutive misses. Thanks ESPN! Today we are laying down on coverage it sounds like supermoto is up today and well… I’m taking a break to go skate but lets get into a little news first.
