Is a forward facing engine over there?

Cooper's form is always so good!

I think a big thing will be the potential difference on starts. Sure JGR will be able to pull horsepower out of the bike, but we all know the Yamaha rips, it has consistently pulled a lot of holeys... AND combine that with Barcia and Phil kinda being ... more »

It's all Europe bro, it has honestly never felt that different place to place to me. Maybe because regardless it's either a weird language or weird this or that, so differentiating is whatever...

Yeah mate, two stroke prices down here are mental! Although, there is an 86 Cr250 on gumtree kicking about for 2500 I think, looks to be a good starting point too, just don't have the time to justify it right now.

That's my point though, it's all close as. The culture thing is overplayed, it's not that different... and in my experience most Euros are more than comfortable moving between. In regards to the racing though, it's so easy for Italian fans and teams ... more »

Ferris is not a Gypo, and he can definitely ride, was stoked to see him head back and shake his finger at everyone. I'm talking about the flags you don't even recognise and the dudes on old model bikes! When was the last Euro MXdN that wasn't HUGELY ... more »

I don't think it's too unfair. Yes, Europe isn't a country, but basically every Euro country has a "home-court" advantage at 95% of the GP tracks - save for the bullshit rounds in Indo or Qatar obviously. And like it or not, the event isn't the same ... more »

Don't think so. The same conversations were had before Thunder Valley in 2010 because everyone knew Budds was a bust. And the event is definitely not the same without the US. It's effectively a team GP plus some gypos who can't ride for squids.

Yep, that's what I was referring too. Unfortunately, that is trying only, and not what is/was needed. As Beaurano says, he's a plague on the sport.

He did an Aussie and GP round on that thrown together bike tho, and no one really gives a shit if the Kiwis win or lose, except however many Kiwis are in to bikes. The US team is basically expected to win and has the pressure to do so of every single ... more »

At the end of the day... The MXdN is NOT the same if the US isn't there. It's just not. If you don't agree, then you're blind. And I feel like the Euro dudes who have 17 GPs a year on super custom bikes and usually don't have to travel too far for the ... more »

Yep... And handing out "special special VIP" passes and other bullshit. YS and Luongo are scum. The GP guys should have boycotted him years ago. They're fucked now. Hopefully the American guys know their moto history when SX asks for 5 more races.
Reply to Rumours at Maggiora that Glen Helen will not stage 2017 MXoN? 9/27/2016 4:26 PM
The question has been asked of a few clubs, but it costs SOOOOO much fucking money to line YS's pockets that even with Government backing there is no chance. Which is really the issue. YS makes money and does shady shit, fisting the host clubs. GH will ... more »

That was a tough read... Hope it turns around for him, in every way.

People don't say RC is a 16 Ama champ. They say 15.
