Racer X has partnered with MotoDynasty to bring you Fantasy Motocross. We'll be offering cool weekly and series prizes; dynasty play; private leagues that just you and you're buddies can play in; weekly fantasy previews; and weekly podcasts all focused on fantasy.
How to Play
1.) Sign-Up: This will be the easiest decision you've made all week. Go to motodynasty.racerxonline.com to sign up.
2.) Play Options: There are two different ways to play Racer X MotoDynasty Fantasy Supercross.
A.) Dynasty play is where you test your skills against thousands of others to win weekly and series prizes.
B.) Create or join a private league with your buddies, co-workers, family, the dude at the local watering hole—whoever. You can talk smack on your way to the league title.
They Were Who We Thought They Were
Below are the stats for the top ten of dynasty points earned for High Point. In short, the more points a rider earned, the more accurate the user base played them. Take Ken Roczen for example. He finished first. Most of you predicted this. Therefore, he garnered the most points. Or take Justin Brayton. He finished just outside the top ten in eleventh, but most users predicated this, and he scored the eighth most points last weekend.
Check out the rest of the top ten. This is a great indicator of who is a predictable fantasy racer.
- Chad Reed is out after undergoing should surgery earlier this week. He will miss the remainder of the season.
- His former teammate, Josh Grant, was expected to return this weekend from a knee injury, but due to his team closing his status going forward is uncertain.
- Matt Lemoine is not expected to contest the remainder of the season after his team, JAB Motorsports, decided to park the rig due to financial problems.
- Yamalube/Star Racing Yamaha will be in full force for the first team since Hangtown, as both Cooper Webb and Anthony Rodriguez return this weekend.
- Top privateer Jackson Richardson is out this weekend after sustaining a broken hand during a testing session.
We need to start treating Martin like the top-five threat he is every week. I like another top-five—especially if it rains. (See Southwick, 2011.)
Peters should fall between 10-15 in your picks. Through ten motos, he’s averaged a 14.3-place finish.
Taking the plunge and picking Webb for the podium in his first race back is not as crazy as it sounds.
If it rains as predicted, watch out for the former GNCC race winner. Podium is not a crazy prediction.
Osborne is another rider I like if conditions turn ugly. He’s raced plenty of off-road races and even the ISDE. In short: He knows how to manage different terrains and conditions.
Unless something changed during the off-week, Ken’s back seems to be holding up. Race wins should come in bunches now.
As previously mentioned in 10 Things to Watch, Tickle has a 7.9 average finish through ten motos. I don’t foresee that changing this weekend.
Brayton typically starts to form into shape around this time. I like a top-ten this weekend.
Seely has been solid in his first year outdoors. He has seven straight moto top-tens after a crash at the opening round. Don’t look for that to change this weekend.
Hahn appeared to turn the corner at High Point and should be a top-ten consideration going forward.
250 Class: Glen Helen
Rider: Zack Williams | 20th
Points Scored: 618
Users that picked him top twenty: 29
Who to watch at Budds Creek: Anthony Rodriguez: A-Rod has been out since Hangtown, but should still battle for a top-ten spot this weekend.
450 Class: Glen Helen
Rider: John Short | 20th
Points Scored: 119
Users that picked him top twenty: 5
Who to watch at Budds Creek: Tony Archer: Watch for the Maryland native to perform well at his home track. He’s scored points in five of ten motos this season, which is also a plus.
