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.

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 »

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.

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 »

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 »

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 »

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 »

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