Video: Racing at the Tennessee National with Neko Mulally

Apr 9, 2020

bigquotesWe are finally getting a taste of being back at the races. The Tennessee National has been our first race of the season for the past few years and it has become a really important training tool for the US riders. We are able to see what we need to work on before the first World Cup of the year. It’s also a home race so we get to hangout with the boys. Neko Mulally

 I’m with you. Just let it run it’s course and move on with life. Natural selection needs to happen.

 @scotttherider: A global pandemic spread by manmade migration and capitalist structuralism is the literal opposite of "natural selection". Humans caused the virus, humans spread the virus, and humans can stop the virus so long as EVERYONE is patient.

 @scotttherider: Tell you what - volunteer your older relatives to take one for the team first.

Also, learn some effing science. If someone's already passed on their genes by reproducing, they've already made it through any natural selection.

 @scotttherider:
Don't get me wrong...i want to get back to riding with buddies...but his video came out on the 3rd of April, and he states there will be 10,000 deaths from the virus in the US...one week later...we're about to hit 17,000. That
makes his prediction way off. And...although China is drastically better off right now, they are still reporting some new cases daily....but they shut down everything...which goes against the idea of herd immunity. Just something to think about.

 @tommyrod74: all of my older relatives are dead. I would personally volunteer to get covid to get it over and done with as well. I also understand science quite well thank you very much. I also know how to reproduce and have 3 very highly intelligent offspring. My 4 year old knows more about astronomy and space then 90% of this pages users. My 10 year old is already in pre-algebra and my 9 year old is reading at a 14 year olds comprehension level.

@dirtreynolds: I don’t understand closing off forests/public lands as well as trails. In Oregon they’ve shut everything down out till September 30th. We’re not even through April. Also Even though he underestimated deaths I would be willing to bet he’d still stand behind what he says in that video as well as published even now.

 @scotttherider: while I am happy for you that you don't have anyone susceptible to the virus your comments are a little harsh for those of us that do have people at risk in our lives. I would love for my unborn child to meet its grandparents when this is all done and over with.

 @ptrcarson: my biggest thing for this with elders is that albeit they’re the ones more at risk why shut the world down. Why shut everyone in. Why not have the elders shelter in place? Why not have those with respiratory issues shelter in place. Why not let those of us less susceptible to complications build the heard immunity and kill it that way? Why shut the world down?

 @scotttherider: I understand that point of view, the reality is there would be a lot more deaths. From my understanding that is what Sweden is doing and they have a lot more deaths per capita than their neighbours. It is just a choice of freedom of movement vs number of deaths. Mind you I can still ride here and I think its safe so I don't disagree with you in some sense.

 @ptrcarson: thank you for being reasonable. I by no means think that covid is harmless because obviously it’s infecting masses of the population(currently .02% global population) But I feel that part of this flattening of the curve idea is just prolonging the damage to the global economy and going to make it harder to come back from. Part of me as well thinks that this pandemic is nature’s way of gaining some ground back from the most damaging species to ever grace the planet.

 @tommyrod74: Here’s more science for you. This guys not quite as let it run its coarse but again we don’t have enough data to have made some of the brash decisions that have been made through this. As I say further down to ptrcarson go ahead and fast forward to around 52 minutes into this and listen to the question and subsequent answer.
