I'm researching for a project and would love to hear from some dudes that were around in this era. How big of a deal was it? What can you compare it to these days? Cheers boys!

You think Eli is kicking himself watching that race from the couch? That was like nothing I've seen all season. Des Nations lived up to the hype this year for sure.

Great poster Ranger! This deserves many eye balls. Lets send this to Ask Ping?!

That was retarded. But in a way, a kind of fitting wild end to a wild race. I'm really glad Anderson appears to be OK, that gave me the chills.

Shame he's not here for his country when it counts. (This isn't a dig, just think its a shame US aren't putting their front foot forwards)

Searle has a history of great rides at Des Nations. Easy to forget that this is the guy that used to bring it to Herlings, AC and regularly beatin Paulin. His confidence seemed to get smothered in the 450s. Hope he can ride with some FIRE this weekend! ... more »

The rate our species are destroying the planet, I think we should be stoked there is viable options in the pipeline. Like the guys above said, this is our inevitable future. Will take some getting used to but deep down we all know fossil fuels will eventually ... more »

Am I right in thinking back then, guys rode a bit of everything? Like the sport wasn't so defined, specialised and segregated? Like even DeCoster back then rode the ISDE. Seems like guys rode everything; tracks, desert, moto, enduro - is that a fair ... more »

Considering how many races he's missed during his pro career, you might think he'd want to do as many races as possible, for himself and his sponsers. For the guys that have done full seasons like Cooper and won titles I agree, esp for the 450 dudes ... more »

I agree, political correctness will dry this sport to the root and we'll be left with a bunch of vanilla kids with no life experience outside of a track, no opinions and no wit representing the sport. The sports growth will be stunted as a result as
Reply to KR on Aldon 8/22/2016 10:02 AM
Lets remember the dynamic of their relationship, Aldon wasn't his boss. Roczen hired him for a job. I feel like people sometimes act as if Aldon was his employer, or his boss, was the other way round... Kenny has every right to voice his opinion about ... more »
