With the new HP lay-out, I'm not sure if there is still a massive booter or not. I know Hangtown and GH both have a massive jump again this year though.
It's still there.

Ya, it's looking like more and more people are saying he is done.

I don't think Eli will have a perfect season, just because the guy doesn't consistently get good starts. Plus he is prone to mistakes. I still think if he stays healthy that he will win the title. I think Musquin will be up there, Anderson also. I'd even put Webb in the conversation. Grant might do ok at 1 of the Cali rounds (especially GH) but not sure if I'd consider him a front runner. Barcia would be nice but he just seems way off the pace anymore. I'm hoping he gets going.

Blake Baggett is my pick for someone to step-up.....he was progressively getting better with each round of SX and his expertise is the nationals.....el chupacabra will return!!! lol

I keep hearing vague rumors that Tomac is going to sit out the motocross season too. Not sure why, but I guess we'll see.

I highly doubt that. I work with a lot of the riders / promoters with merchandise for the races. Tomac sent us like 9 designs that he had done on his own, to sell for the Nationals.

I realize I also said that we did 2 designs for Dungey also (lol), but we did those for him. They are already on the trucks for rd1. I assume they will sell them even though he won't be racing. So we will see, but I just can't imagine Tomac sitting out, for a variety of reasons.
