Added reply in a thread For the first time in 2 years I've watched the MX2 (GP) class 7/28/2014 9:19 AM
I paid for yesterday's GP because Motorstv weren't showing it to late. Glad I did because it was awesome from beginning to end! Easily worth 5 quid. Jeremy's reaction after winning the 450s was great to see.

I also seem to remember France suffering terrible luck in Donington 2008 I think it was, with Aubin getting a flat. I may be getting mixed up though. Luck certainly hasn't been on their side with this race.

WOW, my word! If you're only going to watch one GP this year then this is the one to catch! Just brilliant from both classes!

Oh man MX2 is epic right now!

Damn... I have to admit, MX2 class without JH is pretty exciting. Everyone sensing the opportunity.

To answer the OP, I don't think he's toast but he is in trouble. That's pretty hard to deny imo. As above the results aren't bad - it's more along the lines of how he's "looked" that I think has us KR fans concerned. Again, as in the race thread yesterday, ... more »

Just got done watching the MX1 qualifying race (couldn't find it on Youtube to embed here), pretty aggressive pass there from Steven on Clement..... wonder if they'll be some bad blood later today etc.

I wouldn't put it by France winning with their chosen team (or at least a podium) - in which case Grant may be the one that ends up looking a little bit silly. They're not as strong as the USA but still, it isn't a crappy line-up by any means, especially ... more »

True, but he really had to dig deep late into the second moto at Budds Creek a few weeks back, and ever since then hasn't quite been the same. Ironically the same thing happened to Eli a few yrs back at Freestone (though much worse). Heat exhaustion ... more »

I think it's temperature. That's the only thing that consistently lines up with Kenny's late season troubles. He's a northern European and didn't grow up riding this heat.

Shadows look like a nightmare to deal with, especially at those speeds.

Good for Ivan, I'm happy for him. The guy has had an awesome career winning races and championships, as well as solid MXDN performances - really can't ask for more than that. Glad I got to watch him live in 2006 too. I think he was also the last active ... more »

Absolutely awesome bike there jeffro! Really wish I had one myself tbh. Congrats.

Mickael Pichon and Ricky Carmichael - 2002. Mickael was very fast at this time and full of confidence. On most tracks my money would've been on RC, but either way we were ultimately robbed of that encounter after the disaster that was the 2002 MXDN (other ... more »

All those guys are cocky, Dungey included. Some are better at hiding it than others, but otherwise you can't make it to that level without a healthy dose of arrogance.

Have recently noticed the .22LR version (ARX 160) pop up on one of the gun sites I frequent, though personally I'm not overly keen on the look of them - too bulky for my taste.
Added reply in a thread Why do you ride or follow MX? 7/23/2014 12:19 AM
I got into the sport when I was about 11 or 12 after seeing someone drag a dirt bike on the back of their trailer - that was it, that was all it took. I just knew that I had to have one. Some of my richest MX memories come from those first few years ... more »

Tough reading... "Witnesses at the scene recount that Herlings lost control cresting a jump and caught his leg trying to correct.
