Added reply in a thread 1 week to go- mxdn predictions! 9/22/2014 3:43 AM

Interesting. Seems like a couple of others agree with you too. My predictions usually end up way off the mark tbh, so I'm certainly not saying you're wrong!

But I have to say I am surprised to find myself in the minority on this one. The way ... more »

Oh man that looks pretty horrendous! A truly scary list of injuries too. All the best to Marcus right now.

As with many above, I think a likely scenario is of course.. 1.USA 2.France 3.GB As far as individual match-ups go, it'lll be interesting to see Tony and Jeremy go at it in MX2 (hard to tell who'll come out on top). And although he hasn't had a great ... more »

Added reply in a thread Wilson MXdN: Scotland / GB? 9/18/2014 9:35 AM

If the Scots do vote yes, then there's an 18 month lull before they properly separate (independence day), so I guess there could conceivably be one more, the very very last, GB MXDN team with Scotland as a contributor. So Dean will get a chance to potentially ... more »

In retrospect after looking at his X-ray pic taken on Saturday in another thread, I think you're right. I hope he hasn't re-injured himself badly, it really does look nasty! Bone is nowhere near knitted and apparently he also tore two muscles in the ... more »

Wow! Honestly we as fans couldn't have been treated to a better nail biter considering the situation going into that last moto - which should've been fairly easy for Jordi. Spectacular stuff. Very happy for Jordi, well deserved! Unbelievable effort from ... more »

If the qualifier is anything to go by then Jordi looks to have got his starts dialled in once more after having trouble getting out the gate last week. I think he grabs the bull by the horns and goes 1 - 1. If that's true then I think I'm right in saying ... more »

Added reply in a thread Scotland's breakaway from the UK will kill our MXDN team in future years! 9/12/2014 6:38 AM

Tbh I can't blame the Scots for wanting shot of the Westminster elite - I want shot of the Westminster elite too! The only problems I have with the SNP is that; on one hand they constantly bang on about freedom and independence, but at the same time ... more »

Added reply in a thread Scotland's breakaway from the UK will kill our MXDN team in future years! 9/11/2014 11:47 AM

I'm not sure but I think so. Looks like there's going to be an 18 month lull before they properly breakaway... "If the result is Yes, Alex Salmond has declared Independence Day to be March 24 2016: exactly 309 years since the Acts of Union that joined ... more »

Interesting stuff, cheers. It was mandatory here for a while after the 2nd World War and as a result my late uncle did it. From Iv'e been told he quite liked it and fitted in well - though in all honesty I'm not sure that I would've been much good at ... more »

Cool man, sounds like you had an awesome day! Would like to see your vids too. Do you plan to keep on shooting Sunhouse? Also, slightly off topic (hopefully you don't mind me asking) what are your thoughts on the mandatory military service?

Added reply in a thread Villopoto vs Cairoli 9/10/2014 9:33 AM

I got mildly irritated with Grant's commentary this year too on a couple of occasions. Yes he's won World and AMA titles, but he hadn't raced a GP at the time of his retirement in 2010, in 10 yrs... and didn't much sound like he'd recently watched one ... more »

Added reply in a thread Villopoto vs Cairoli 9/9/2014 9:43 AM

If Tony is an incredible rider (I agree he is) then, going on lap times, it's very difficult to dissociate Tony and his competition as being two separate things in speed. It can't be that TC is incredible but the rest of MX1 field is mediocre (I know ... more »

MXGP-TV has almost all (including 2007) the MXDN's going right back to 1997 - full races etc. No fee, just sign up. http://www.mxgp-tv.com/videos/mxon

Added reply in a thread Villopoto vs Cairoli 9/8/2014 8:52 AM

I agree with all of this. On the National scene RV would have the advantage, but in the GPs it's difficult to bet against Tony imo. The good news for RV (if he does race GPs next year) is that with the inclusion of so many new tracks, he couldn't have ... more »

As individual riders go, I would say Tommy Searle could surprise a few people. He rode his socks off there last year and so clearly likes the circuit - also seeing him back on a the 250f will be interesting. I think he'll be comfortable, perhaps the ... more »

Damn, tough day for injuries. Shaun Simpson dislocated shoulder (but looks to be OK), Jeremy van Horebeek with a screwed up ankle and now of course worst of all; Dean with a broken leg. Poor guy was clearly in agony (as you would be). Congrats to Romain ... more »
