    Nickys great day - Spoiler

    No one speaking of Nicky breaking the 6th place spell this past weekend? He did good.

    I'm assuming he is saying that he has been under a spell preventing him from advancing past 6th place.

    I'd say that "spell" is that worn out heap between his legs every race. Lol

    My hopes where up in race one, then his tyres dropped off.
    So I was so excited to see him earn that win. No crash fest. No crazy flag to flag , or pit stop race. Just straight up race in the equalizing rainy conditions.

    Go Nicky!!!!

    Yeah, I wanted to post something but I didn't want to drop a "spoiler" in case members hadn't seen the race yet. That was probably some of the most aggressive riding I've seen out of him. Some of those passes could have easily ended up in disaster. One of my biggest beefs with NH is how clean and courtious he always is on the racetrack. I know that sounds ridiculous but sometimes you just gotta stuff it in there and get on with it. I call him the gentleman racer because he rarely ever makes an aggressive pass or closes the door on anybody. It was good to see him take the gloves the off and then drop the hammer on those fools. I thought Giugl...whateverthefuck on the Ducati was going to catch him on the final laps but Nicky answered when it matter. i'm so proud of that dude. Know if he'd only lose that stupid top knot!

    That's his thing. He won his championship by finishing not winning every race. It annoys me too sometimes

    Which is funny because he was the complete opposite in flat track. He was a demonchild in the dirt.
