Added reply in a thread Wish I could ride like this guy: RV 1/29/2015 2:31 AM
That's true RV has never had so much time to prepare for outdoors. This will be the fastest he has been. I can't wait for the season, pity he isn't racing the GP boys this weekend in the Italian championships to get a preview! I think RV will dominate ... more »
Added reply in a thread Most over hyped rookie that hasn't performed 1/29/2015 1:59 AM
Webb was in a much tougher coast than AC but they were probably a similar speed last year. So far AC has had so much hype and he hasn't lived up to it because of injury. Webb but has had a lot less hype and had a better career so far, second in outdoors ... more »

It would be cool to see Reed win again after his season so far.
Added reply in a thread Trey Canard = Class Act 1/26/2015 7:01 AM
Agreed, super guy and brilliant rider. Interviewed him a couple of times ( one time after Barcia took him out in Bercy) and he still had time to talk and do the interview even though he was frustrated after the race. Great to see him get another win ... more »

Nobody wore number 2 last season in MXGP as far as I know.

The start of the season must be mentally hard too, you do all that work for months with a new team who put their faith in you and then it's over, add in being injured season after season and it has to be tough to not get very down initially, Hopefully ... more »

That's four guys out already. Gutted for Dean, seemed to be getting to grips with his arm pump issues too at A2. He's had a tough few years, hopefully he can come back and be a contender again, in AMA or even a change of scenery and do GPs, he is a better ... more »
Added reply in a thread Roczen and aldon 1/23/2015 7:20 AM
RC, Bubba, Roczen all won titles before Aldon, and it doesn't work with every rider, Weimer, Rattray, Baggett for example. Aldon gets the best riders who are already winning and helps them stay there or improve. But I don't think you need Aldon to win ... more »

I think Gajser is the most talented guy in MX2 other than Herlings, he is still in education too! He could be Herligns biggest threat this season. I could see Gajser, Ferrandis and Anstie battling for the win in Qatar given that Herlings won't be 100% ... more »

Bengtsson is loving the bike at the minute from what I have heard. If he can up his pace on hard pack, which I believe he is, he could do some damage this year. His sand speed is on point already!
Added reply in a thread Entry lists for Qatar MXGP 1/22/2015 4:06 PM
Pretty similar in top 20 excluding injuries but 25th in mxgp probably a bit quicker than 25th in ama. It's pretty amazing how deep both fields are in 2015. Some top guys who have ability to be top ten speed won't get in the top 20 in Qatar and will be ... more »

Crazy depth in MXGP, some very good riders will be fighting for 20th or worse and riding as good as ever! Stacked. Even the top guys could struggle to come through with a bad start. MX2 will be interesting too, don't write Anstie off to win the opener, ... more »

Pretty bad injuries, glad there is no long term damage.

Mike needs to ride MXGP, outdoor is his best talent and MXGP with a full year of outdoor racing would suit him perfectly. Mike gets a lot of flak, but I like the guy, he works hard and has been v good in supercross this season but for me he needs to ... more »
Added reply in a thread Is the 450 championship over? 1/19/2015 3:48 PM
Roczen is in the drivers seat, he has all the pieces of the puzzle. But he still has to execute every week and not make big mistakes because Dungey will be there all year long and Canard and Tomac have the speed to get on a roll if Roczen has a couple ... more »
Added reply in a thread Typical Canard 1/18/2015 4:14 AM
I don't think Trey ride over his head he just wasn't expecting Reed to go tight, and that was the problem. Just a racing incident but in hindsight Canard was going faster anyway and maybe could have waited a turn or two and would have got through anyway, ... more »

Bayle didn't win the 125 US title. Got hurt while leading it I think. He did win a 125 World title however.

Stewart, RC, Tortelli, Chiodi was pretty awesome too. For me Stew was at his best on a 125, brilliant to watch.
Added reply in a thread Herlings 1/15/2015 1:29 PM
Seems like his leg injury could have been part of the reason he didn't go MXGP, I've heard he may not even make Qatar too and with Thailand being a week later, Herlings could have his hands full to win a third title if he misses the first round or two
Added reply in a thread RV 1/14/2015 4:41 PM
Exactly and a couple of others will probably win GPs too.
