You're one of the tour veterans these days. Have you ever been up against a tougher group of riders? No, I have not been up against a tougher group of riders. The seed I came through that I was part of in the semifinals in Knoxville, Tennessee, in the last tour stop was the hardest seed I've ever seen on paper. It was myself, Rusty, Harley , Phil and Troy . To have made it through that was a pretty exciting moment. And part of that is just because the level of riding has stepped up every year. It used to be two, three, or four guys who would step up to that level of riding and now it's 15 to 20. This is just a group of about 10 guys who can win every tour stop and I know Harley and Rathy have traded back and forth so far. But there are quite a few events left, and there are 10 guys who could easily win this. It's very competitive this year.
