Is this the passing of the torch? The changing of the guard? The young contender sending the old champ down for the count? Or is it just the warm up for season-long, knock-down, drag-out fight to the finish?
All I can say is I wish I could see it. I don't get Speedvision, and there's no racing on any of the other channels. Bah, humbug!
Isn't Carmichael from Orlando Florida??? I took my son to the supercross when it was at the Citrus Bowl a few years back and it was great. Excellent view of the whole track. I took him again this last year at Daytona and it was a real to see and to follow the race. Took something away from it.
Anyway, I seem to remember Carmichael being a local upstart hero at the time. Maybe I'm getting senile and remembering it all wrong.
