In 250s our pearl, Tommy Searle! Came close a few times to the 250 title. Hasn't had a sniff on 450s. Crazy he doesn't even have a British title either or any other titles at all, although that may change this year.

Nuts! To be fair he's prob had more seat time already than the lot of us old wretches! haha

I love the irony of these "cooler than thou" guys spending their time wisely explaining how much the don't give a fuck and why you moto fans shouldn't be interested either. NOTHING in the motocross micro world matters in the big scheme of things, none ... more »

He's already won it. He's dominated that class. What more does he have to prove down there? Spin it anyway you want, but he's taking the path of least resistance.

Agreed.

Fair play, do what you want to, but so boring for GPs. Makes me respect Roczen even more when you look at their career trajectories. Roczen left a lot on the table to risk the SX path.... He who dares wins Rodney! (Only Brits will get that quote)

Playing Devil's advocate here, but without Dungey, is there a chance Kenny loses focus ever so slightly and the others close the gap? You guys remember in 2004 when RC was out with an ACL and ever the opportunist Windham smelt blood, caught on fire and ... more »

Reply to PR: Dungey Injured 6/8/2016 10:13 AM

Yeah Im not hinting there should be an asterix or anything, but I feel like Kenny beating Dunge outdoors would be great for Roczen's confidence, great for his 2017 Supercross season, and great for his career in general. Dungey has had the upper hand ... more »

Lucky he was to the side of track, would have got mauled. If this is the only video of his crash you have to chuckle. That dog is awesome! hahaha

Reply to PR: Dungey Injured 6/8/2016 9:19 AM

Damn! Heal fast Dunge. This is bad news for Roczen too, he's been relishing the fight. Guessing he'd love nothing more than to beat RD "straight up" for the title. .

Ah man, heal fast boss!

What precedent is there for kids that come in hot like this, get injured a bunch young and then flourish into champions? Not saying he can't do it, just trying to think of other similar examples.

Reply to Most Naturally Talented Rider? 6/4/2016 4:24 AM

I'll look up that book! I mean look at Deegan's kid, is that "natural talent" or hard work and hours of repetition on the best facilities a kid could ever have? John Tomac himself said he could take most kids to Eli's level on a Matthes podcast and there ... more »

Reply to Most Naturally Talented Rider? 6/4/2016 4:13 AM

I think its an interesting concept to explore. So what does propel you to the top of a sport if its not hard work? You're not born a World Champion out of the womb.

Reply to Most Naturally Talented Rider? 6/4/2016 3:49 AM

Some people argue (Conor McGregor is one of them) that there is no such thing as " NATURAL TALENT" . And that its all just hard work and repetition that builds greatness. Whats your guys thoughts on that?
