Started new thread Everts on Cairoli 9/13/2017 4:51 AM

Caught up with Stefan at Assen to get his thoughts on Cairoli winning his ninth world title and being one title away from Everts' record! Unsurprisingly he was very complimentary about the current king of MXGP - as well as Jeffrey Herlings' speed! Stefan Everts interview ... more »

Good to have Ben Watson and Conrad Mewse back plus Jago Geerts too!

I think Cooper has a riding style better suited to a 450, he rides with a lot of technicality similar to the riders in the 90s. I believe that guy will figure it out and can get to the level he needs to be a consistent threat at the front.

I think he did a great job and JT was very good as well.

Racing the full world championship would be a bit different for RJ from racing your home GP or the des nations. Ask RV. There is one world motocross championship, that's MXGP, it's the measuring stick for being the best mx rider in the world. If you ... more »

What has SX, an American sport, got to do with motocross racing and the USGP? The KTM duo will be riding Lommel in the middle of winter in preparation for the 2018 motocross world championship. Which is part of the reason why if you want to be the best ... more »

Looked to me He got the holeshot and pinned it while Herlings and AC started about tenth, Herlings actually closed the gap when he got into second then backed it off... Tomac is as fast as them on smooth wide open tracks that suit his style. He took ... more »

Added reply in a thread Congrats to RJ Hampshire! 9/3/2017 6:48 PM

He rode great and wanted it badly. Impressed with his composure under pressure after his crash in moto one and again when the Suzuki duo were hunting him down in moto two at the end. He has always been very fast but mentally he was very strong today ... more »

Very, very surprised they levelled the track after Saturday. I wonder what made them do that as that does not usually happen in MXGP. Not sure why they wanted the track so smooth, it was bizarre to see such a smooth wide open track on the first motos ... more »

Added reply in a thread Herlings Corner Speed 8/28/2017 3:25 PM

Herlings did the fastest lap of the race on lap 14. Pretty sure Marvin knew he was charging so couldn't drop his pace and made the mistake. I expect Tomac to be on it this weekend, so does Herlings. Eli was was trying in practice and until he crashed. ... more »

I think the same when I watch those races! Crazy to think really - sign of getting old ha ha!

Added reply in a thread Herlings next move... 8/28/2017 7:16 AM

Yeah, if you want to be the best motocross guy you race MXGP, if you want to be the best SX guy and enjoy glamour of supercross, you go to the USA.

Except Cairoli who actually leads the points and has ridiculous speed when he wants to use it.

Exactly.

Added reply in a thread congrats eli 8/26/2017 7:27 PM

I think he will be super-motivated to get some revenge on Herlings next weekend. I can't wait for it!

So pleased for Jeffrey Herlings that he showed America why the rest of the world keep saying how insanely fast he is year after year- and it wasn't even sand. He has taken so much abuse on here over the years, he deserves the plaudits now. Fantastic ... more »

Neither of those sentences are true. It wasn't a misquote go listen to the podcast...and I just gave the organiser of the event a right to reply to allegations from the US media that YS were moving the race back on purpose - which GL deserved and btw, ... more »

Shame for him. He has been superb this season outdoors, one of the biggest surprises of the year.

The quote was not out of context. Steve's views were very public on the dates, before and since, on a variety of platforms including here. I just asked the guy that ran the race about those public views. It was a valid question, he had a right of reply, ... more »
