Added reply in a thread Well, Assen was a bloody great GP 9/1/2015 10:25 AM
The sand saved it imo, always such an interesting terrain to watch the pros dissect. Plus a title wrap-up is special. As a GP taken in its entirety, I thought it was quite good (I wasn't there in person). I would fear more rounds ending up like that ... more »

Wow, that's pretty amazing!

Fair enough, I see. I think a lot of people feel (at least I do) that Tommy has better hard-pack speed (when at his best, injury free etc). Shaun is a solid rider on the hard-pack and certainly superior in the deep sand - but most GP tracks aren't sand. ... more »

Well they're not connected. Rooting for Tommy doesn't negate rooting for Shaun, or indeed anyone else. We have such few top riders on the world stage that any sort of GB success is welcome. Shaun has received plenty of props this year and rightly so, ... more »

Well.. that turned out to be a damn good GP. Huge congrats to Romain! What a transformation, no one would've guessed this at the start of the season.

Wow, that was a great shot of Paulin jumping through the bumps.

Surely he has to come in... Edit: There he goes, just cut it.

All the original cast Star Trek movies were a big hit with me as a kid (even the Whale one). More so than Star Wars. Indiana Jones Young Sherlock Holmes The Good, the Bad and the Ugly James Bond (Roger Moore especially). Predator, Commando, Total Recall, ... more »

I think Ryan would've been pretty badass on this track.

Wow, gutted for Anstie but otherwise this is a very exciting scenario. Fantastic ride for Thomas Covington too.

This is an old movie so I don't know if it counts but I just picked up the assembly cut of Alien 3. There's a whole bunch of extra scenes that really flesh out the characters especially - even whole story lines that were originally cut for the theatrical ... more »

I don't think it's anyone's first choice of a venue (for us fans I mean), but as others have said its one saving grace is the terrain, the sand; which can greatly add to the character of even a flat, boring layout. Though of course I much rather it were ... more »

As above; I didn't agree with what he originally said either but he's entitled to an opinion just like anyone else.

Roger and the team seemed pretty perplexed at the time of this interview " The strange thing is that the engine runs up to 6000 rpm, and then after that the bike slows down once you accelerate ". http://motocrossactionmag.com/home-page/john-bashers-interview-of-the-week-roger-decoster ... more »

It looks really hard-pack. It doesn’t look like a racetrack in my eyes. This is only a small snippet but if he is highlighting terrain as a minus then don't agree with Ryan here. One of the most awesome things about the GPs (and MX in general) is the ... more »

AMA 250s - Joey Savagty. Just look at his 2014 results vs 2015. He's the most improved 250 rider by an absolute mile. 450s - Jason Anderson. (Edit) 6th in points and a rookie 450 rider. Many of his results are marred by one bad moto, but there's no doubt ... more »
