Get the mounts off your mind. He went back to hastings area. He left so cal after tc. Just because he didnt have mounts didnt mean he wasnt there.
You don't seem to know what you're writing about.
Mario G. "after TC", rode at HOL on
During that time, he went 1-for-34, and that sealed his fate.
or, let me guess, by "after
TC" you mean... like, Veteran's Day, or Christmas
He also went back to New York
... and I suppose you fault him for that too.
It is OK that you recognize that he's not the greatest rider around, but don't make-up stupid sh*t if you can't support that widely-held observation with common sense
. (or even factual reality!)
