Always good to interview a legend like BT, and he had some interesting things to say! Ben Townley interview
Added reply in a thread Ben Townley interview 10/2/2015 4:02 AM
I think Ben's point was America only started to realise how good he was at Ernee because he beat Windham and ran with RC. But he had been riding that good for two/three years winning a world title and beating Everts and Pichon at times and the rest of ... more »

Yeah I had been pretty impressed with Josiah this year but I guess Ben is holding him to world champion standards and not regular standards. I wasn't expecting that answer at all but it shows what is required and expected to be at the top. Thanks Wildbill! ... more »

Spoke to Cooper after the race about his impressive performances on the 450 and the differences in styles between AMA and MXGP, pretty interesting answers and shows how sharp the guys is picking up on the little details. Nice kid and very respectful ... more »

I wish Grant could ride like that every week! Great to watch when on form.

I think if Davi gets top ten that will be really good for him. He is super talented so he could possibly pull it off but it will be tough. Great to see him back though... getting excited for supercross already!

Looking forward to see BT ride again in person at the Des Nations. Pretty cool he is getting help from Dave Thorpe's Buildbase Honda team in France too.

Good interview, nice to hear a bit of reality about the GP series from someone in the US who has experienced it! Yeah as far as I know he will be on Husky for Jacky Martens next season. I think he will be up another level next year, Jacky is good with ... more »

Can't wait! Could be the best race of the year. More talent there than will be at the mxdn.
Added reply in a thread Assen track is awesome!!! 9/3/2015 10:01 AM
There are no hills at lommel or lierop. Track was still a tough sand track in a more accessible setting for fans, especially to generate new fans. It worked brilliantly and was a great addition to an already varied calendar.

That puts them back in contention for the podium and even the win, if Ken can find his old speed. If anyone cn turn it one for one day it's big Ken. Brent Van Doninck wouldn't have been a bad choice either. But Ken, a regular 450 rider and his experience ... more »

Presuming Roczen is out of reach, I would push hard for Tonus. With his talent and style on a 450 plus Everts behind him he could be a potential race winner for Suzuki and certainly a podium guy.

Agree, I have seen with the ktm kids at sx and he is great with them too. Great guy, great champion and great role model.
Added reply in a thread If Jonass wins the world title... 8/13/2015 4:51 AM
I did an interview with Jonass after Lommel and was pretty impressed with his attitude. He's riding well and smart right now. But he is really taking in everything Everts is telling him, makes me wonder what affect losing Stefan to Suzuki will have on ... more »
Added reply in a thread Our MXoN team... 8/11/2015 12:55 AM
That team can win in France for sure. Webb is super quick right now and should be right up there on a 450 at the front. France might just edge as favourites but for once they have pressure and the USA doesn't... and that team with Barcia and Webb won't ... more »

I think it will be interesting... it might work, it might not, no harm in trying something new to grow the sport.
Added reply in a thread Shoutout to Simpson 8/11/2015 12:39 AM
Exactly. Shaun's best result on hard-pack in mxgp this year is sixth overall and that's with all the injuries. He's a good hard-pack rider and a very good sand rider. I had him down as 5-10 this weekend depending on his start but he was really impressive ... more »
Added reply in a thread Unadilla Bench Racing - The motos 8/8/2015 12:14 PM
Er, no it doesn't show how tough adapting to a different series is... it shows the difference between lommel and hard pack. Shaun is usually 5 to 10 on hard pack tracks in the world championship. I think he went 6-6 in Czech Republic the week before ... more »

Would like to see Tonus back in MXGP on factory Suzuki. Everts might be able to turn him into a potential champion, they ride pretty similar, Tonus just needs the mental strength to be a top MXGP contender.

If more fans turned up to US GPs there would be more US GPs, it's as simple as that. The lack of respect and knowledge for the world championship in the USA is why there aren't more GPs - because the fans won't come to watch. YS want more GPs in the ... more »
