Best team we could've chosen. A top 5 is respectable but of course it'd be especially nice to make the podium.

Interesting post. That's the way I feel about riding again now (though I'm currently not a racer), I want something new to inject the fun back into it. From the pov of racing it's a harder decision. The 250 will work very well on some tracks and not ... more »

Can't forget the lottery of getting a good gate pick on the Friday either, let's hope they get a good one. Briefly on that subject - for those in the know I wonder how fair or equal (for want of a better word) the gate is at Matterley? Iv'e only been ... more »

To echo most of the responses above really; I think 3rd is likely with a respectable chance at 2nd, and perhaps if things really go their way, a win. France look like the favourites but again, if they have a shocker (Febvre is arguably their weakest ... more »

Yeah agreed. I'm still uneasy about going too much more in that direction but in terms of that layout they've really nailed it as much as they could. Great racing.

Remarkable race and MX2 GP, wow. Incredible just on tv, can't imagine what it's like for you guys on location.

What a day so far for Swiss MX fans! You can see the emotion in Arnaud's face.

I know Herlings makes it work but I'm not convinced about that wide line from Anstie before the waves, looks like he loses a bit of time there. Tonus so good at getting across those things. Cairoli closing in now.

I think we'll see Anstie starting to purposely over jump that last table (same jump as Paturel) now.

Added reply in a thread MXGP of Switzerland- Weekend Discussion 8/13/2017 4:53 AM

Wow, you couldn't ask for anymore than that! One of the best MX2 races ever. Awesome. Let's hope both guys get good starts next moto.

This scenario couldn't be any better!

I want Team GB to win of course but failing that (which seems extremely probable) I actually hope Team USA gets it. All likeable guys who stepped up when asked, not superstars but workhorses. Podium material for sure, and perhaps the win if the dice ... more »

Impressive by Anstie, cool.

Yep, I would have to agree there.

Just got back from the cinema and absolutely loved it, especially the Spitfire scenes. Would be interesting to see Nolan do a Battle of Britain follow up. I didn't personally have a problem with the gliding scene as it's perfectly doable (depending on ... more »

Added reply in a thread So which is better, RM or YZ? (Comparison Video) 8/10/2017 6:12 AM

Good video, interesting. These are the 2 bikes I think about buying the most at some future date. One or the other, probably the RM for me as Iv'e never had one and didn't like (though it was still awesome) my ali framed Yam as much as the steel. Also, ... more »

Added reply in a thread Dunkirk 8/6/2017 6:12 PM

Yeah that's basically what Iv'e heard. I do plan to see it (probably this week) as I hear it's also very tense and manages to evoke dread/horror without resorting to excessive gore etc. The only negative Iv'e really heard is that the transitions between ... more »

Added reply in a thread MXGP Lommel 8/6/2017 9:02 AM

Just as Herlings wasn't used to being challenged in MX2, I don't think Cairoli is used to being challenged in MX1 round Lommel - both guys took things to the edge of destruction for the first 15 mins, and were probably spent at the end, Tony especially. ... more »

Added reply in a thread MXGP Lommel 8/6/2017 8:50 AM

Well, that was awesome, just awesome! Huge respect to both guys but Jeffrey answered who's the best sand rider. Congrats to the fans track-side also for being there is person.

Just think if Tony weren't in the race, the lead Jeffrey would have then...
