scrubbing past the GOAT...... doesn't get much better than that which is why I asked for that GoPro footage from Romain!

here's some footage of RC, Everts and Stanton battling, from the POV of Romain Febvre

there is no real "30 minute moto" at the event..... the Americano is a series of one lap "races" that drop the last 5 riders, which Carmichael did well in until one of the races he seemed to have goggle problems and cruised to last in that heat the tire ... more »

he did pass him..... then Herlings passed him right back this happened on the last lap when RV catches Herlings after a bad start, RV is faster, but when Herlings does it to Cairoli........ totally different according to Jeffro haha

it's a race in Europe (usually) so pretty much everyone over here rides KTM by default (generalising)... the only people that don't are those good enough to get support from the other manufacturers among the top guys in the 125 class it's a decent split ... more »

there was also the MX Masterkids event in France which Team USA sent over seven riders for.... they ended up coming third behind Team GB and a French team run by Eric Sorby. Over 900 entries and three days of racing, with 12 classes and awesome action. ... more »

winning classes is a by-product of putting in 5 good motos... and you can win the overall without winning any classes, so yea, winning classes doesn't mean anything in terms of the actual Chamberlain Trophy but i'm sure that's just confused you even ... more »

I would much prefer my MX2 rider to go 1-39 than 7-7.... if my other two riders put in four awesome motos, again, making the class overall unimportant. Justin Barcia won the Open class last year with 15pts, Clement Desalle came 9th with 43pts. Guess ... more »

you don't get points for your class overall.... you get points for your moto scores 2005: Ivan Tedesco - 6/ 17 2006: Ryan Villopoto - 2 / 3 2007: Ryan Villopoto - 1 / 1 2008: Ryan Villopoto - 1 / 10 2009: Jake Weimer - 8 / 25 2010: Trey Canard - 12 / ... more »

i was pretty surprised when i found it in our archives the other day as i wouldn't have thought their paths would have crossed either... i don't know how many classes they did race together or the results from that year, but it's cool they did meet during ... more »

apologies... apparently that isn't true, i must admit i was shocked when i heard it, so it doesn't surprise me that it isn't true

Added reply in a thread GP silly season 2015 7/9/2014 1:19 AM

i was told Todd Waters had a three-year deal, which definitely surprised me.... and i'll be interested to see how solid that commitment is over the next few months

the only good thing to come out of this thread, was that it made me watch this epic video again...

Added reply in a thread Roczen for USA 7/8/2014 7:40 AM

think you'll find that Pocock with be on Team Oranje (Netherlands) with Lars van Berkel. Jeffrey Herlings will only make the team if he does his hair like he did in 2009...

Added reply in a thread Roczen for USA 7/8/2014 7:31 AM

yea, but Villopoto speaks English so he's going to ride for Team GB.... plus Tommy Searle rides Kawasaki, and he's British so there is that connection as well

Added reply in a thread Euros–What do we think of this? 7/8/2014 5:49 AM

he was FIM / CMS Director.... now he's become FIM Europe President.... it's a promotion within the FIM Youthstream are the promoters of an FIM series so obviously there is interaction between the two parties

Added reply in a thread Euros–What do we think of this? 7/8/2014 4:33 AM

No, he isn't VP of Youthstream

you weren't, but Jeffro was haha

any mention of sand makes him curl up in fetal position, and the only way to bring him out is to chant "sand isn't a proper motocross surface... sand isn't a proper motocross surface"
