not really?? not really what?? OF co**** it SHOULD have come down to Gronholm and Loeb, but all Loeb's WRC championships aren't because he occasionally decides to get behind the wheel of a rally car just to be in the X-Games. These guys spend their lives in rally cars . Take a look at the rest of the field ( besides Block) Pastrana, Mirra,Deagan...(the list goes on). All these guys are fairly new to the game.It would be like giving Loeb a motorcycle for about 5 yrs and expecting him to perform like Deagan or Pastrana. I can respect these guys are moving on to a new discipline but the X games has been making a big mistake. They're replacing talent with big names( from other sports). That does not make for good racing.You used to have to get through multiple qualifiers just to get to the X Games qualifiers. Now if you're a big name ( no matter what the sport you're coming from) you're in.

I don't blame the drivers are lame, but I can blame the organisers for this. I didn't hear anything about any the first, so I didn't expect much from them. In the meantime they can use the opportunity to learn something from the "big names".
