For such a brilliant rider, sometimes I feel his achievements go under the radar. I put down some thoughts on why that might be here

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 »

MXGP (main class) is the toughest title in the world. That's the one I would want over even a sx title. If anyone can come back from the USA with a SX title and then win an MXGP title it might be Roczen though... to hold both would be the ultimate. Right ... more »

I agree 500guy. That was one of his best rides of his career in that second moto imo. To come from 18 months of poor results and injury then to win Budds in the mud and then beat Dungey straight up at Red Bud like that - super impressive! Nice to have ... more »

Bummer for Adam, he's been starting to show some form. I really hope he's not going to become a Reynard though. He just can't stay healthy so far in his pro career. Someday soon we will see Webb and AC finally battle for a sustained period of time! I ... more »

Tommy has been unlucky this year, two kickers have cost him the season. But he was flying on the 350. hopefully he can show everyone what he has now. And hopefully KTM keep him for next year! Pit basically said in a recent interview, I think with Adam ... more »

The fact you can't use it as a measuring stick because he didn't dominate is hilarious. The point is there is a lot more guys that can win races in MXGP (than AMA) and who were just as good as Villopoto - that was proven. No need to take offence to facts. ... more »

Nagl rode his home GP one or two weeks after breaking his collarbane a couple of years ago. I think he even led for a while. He's one of the toughest guys out there.
Added reply in a thread Filthy Phil - To the GP's in '16? 7/3/2015 6:14 AM
I don't think Phil would get close to a factory MXGP ride. There are guys with no MXGP rides as good as Phil in the British Championship/ French/German championship struggling to get full time rides in MXGP like Irwin, Aranda, Seb pourcel, Whatley EBB ... more »
Added reply in a thread Matt Lemoine and Jab Motorsports Pulling Out of Outdoors 6/25/2015 2:32 PM
It will be just as good as it is now in the USA. There are 22 riders in supercross, having 40 in outdoors doesn't make the racing better. The guys outside the top 20 don't affect the racing at the front that everyone goes to watch anyway. 25 top tier ... more »

Strijbos staying at Suzuki with Van Horebeek possibly as his teammate, Guillod will probably stay with Standing construct so Simpson may have a shot at being Febvre teammate or with Husky. Ken may retire, hopefully not though, but yet another injury ... more »

Tixier and Desalle is the word for KRT. Simpson deserves a factory ride though somewhere.

It's a pity he got hurt he could have made that championship a three-way battle. I think he will be up there towards the front... but will he want to help Martin ha ha.

Saw it ha ha, know everything except when or if he will come back, the important bit lol I bet KRT are sick of answering questions they can't really answer right now and can't wait to get 2015 over.
Added reply in a thread Where would RV be on the list? 6/23/2015 4:38 AM
Overall in SX and MX? second just behind RC. And if they raced I wouldn't be surprised if RV beat RC to a championship.
Added reply in a thread Matthes On RV 6/23/2015 4:25 AM
It's not the fans that need to know it's KRT. It's difficult for them to plan for 2016 and sign riders until they know if RV is in or out. With the rumours Desalle and Tixier are gong to sign in 2016 now, it would seem to suggest they know RV is out. ... more »
Added reply in a thread No Villopoto '16, Herlings stays MX2, Desalle to KRT and Everts to HRC? 6/23/2015 4:07 AM
Yep I heard the same. Tixier should be a good signing for KRT. He should be really good on a 450 with his smooth style. I think Van Horebeek could go really well on the Suzuki. Herlings has to move up though, KTM keeping him down has held back his progress. ... more »

Love that footage. Amazing how fast Max is going, you wouldn't think you could go any faster yet Herlings proves otherwise and pulls away!
