 I hate to say this as I am a big fan of CG, but man does he gotta go. Either for some training or just away from the broadcast. They sent RC for media training in order to elevate Supercross after the feedback was pretty bad. So many people that could do the job and I don't think Ced is hurting for cash lol

 Can’t imagine how bad Ricky must’ve been before that training! The only person he’s better than is Bubba…and we’re ALL better than Bubba!

 It's worse than that: CG was no worse this week than last, but Ric fell off a cliff: he literally cut off Gwinn every single time he started a sentence. No Ric, we *do not* want to hear you shout out splits that break Aaron's train of insightful thought, and Cedric, shouting "he loves the speed" at every racer on screen literally causes spasms of pain in all viewers with actual brains. Discovery doesn't need to give Ric & Cedric additional training: they need to give them the boot, and give us Elliot Jackson & Gwinn, or anyone else who takes the time to think before just spouting nonsense!

 @owl-X: it was actually when he was a team owner and Brock Tickle was one of his riders and RC said "Man if he were going any slower he would tip over"......whoosh off he went LOL. The moto crowd loves Bubba as he is quite insighful. Unfortunately the homeschooling shows in the moto industry when it comes to grammar.

 could someone please tell the cameramen to fit the whole rider+bike in the shot? Instead of focusing in the lower 2 cm of each tire?

 Serious question: does anybody outside the bike realm use the term 'stoked'?

 Yeah I’m wary of people who don’t get stoked. Or know how to say “dude” right.

 @Muckal - stoked = ur-kalifornische Umgangsprache. Goes back to 1060's surf culture & is one of very few emphatic slang terms that has never gone out of style. And no, "doch ganz gut" doesn't even come close. You stoke a flame to make it burn brighter, it's not a half-*ssed emotion, and it's not just a lifestyle sports thing: you can be stoked on your girlfriend, music, beer, or anything that really gets you going. Q: "How do you feel? / Wie fühlen Sie Sich?" A: "I'm so stoked! / Bin total begeistert! bzw. Freue mich wahnsinnig darüber!"

 @powturn: Damn those crazy Normans with those surfboards and funny language

 @powturn: I translated to german. In Germany 'doch ganz gut' is about as emotional as people get.
It was meant to be a joke, nevermind.

 It’s just a good warm up ,it’s ridiculous for what it is ,you’re right ,it’s like they want a great finale ,with crashes ,it is stupid every year,I understand for the world champion,but for the championship it’s so stupid ,I could give it when there’s no semi final ,but when it is why?,just to sell time ?,and I’m not against semi finals,but getting rider’s protection on it?it’s just a show that will end in shortly I guess ,go Loris

 It's ridiculous how present Kade Edwards is in all the content output around the world cups. He's probably worth more than most top 20 guys. Hope the rumors about him leaving the world cup scene are false and his switching to another team instead, where he's paid what he's actually worth.

 He doesn't really enjoy the racing, much like Kaos he like to ride his bike and have fun and for a lot of riders WC racing isn't that fun anymore.
