The Others - A3

So with my main focus being not on the guys in the spotlight, but rather the guys who deserve a little light of their own, I wanted a post race segment that would run down the guys who didn't make the mains.

At most races around 90 guys attempt to qualify for the 44 spots that get them in to the night show. Out of that group only 22 guys in supercross make the main event. But isn't making the night show a huge accomplishment in itself? 

In qualifying, tenths of seconds determine racing in front of 40,000 fans or going home. 

So if you didn't make the main event, but you didn't hit the road after qualifying either, who are you? 

You are "The Others"

Sitting with my buddy Brad tonight after the Super Bowl, he came up with this name, and it fits. "The Others" are 5th - 22nd in the LCQs of the 250 and 450 classes.

Well done boys. You accomplished something special.
