1983 MAC3-D?! I wasn't even born then lol That was 2006 Coppins ended Everts GP streak (I think). Alessi came in 05 and that was the year Everts ran down BT to win if I remember in MX1 then hopped off the bike and got a BT goodbye shirt on as Ben crossed ... more »

Yep, Paulin on that HRC Honda will be up there for sure, he had the stuff this year too but got hurt and will be even faster next year imo. Desalle just needs to stay healthy and JVH will be knocking on the door too.

Maybe Herlings said to KTM that he wants to race MXGP next season and if they let him he will sign a multi-year deal with them, other wise he will be off to Honda or somewhere. KTM wouldn't have much choice then... Herlings to MXGP might actually be ... more »

I agree and I hope they will. If AC gets hurt they have basically lost their 2015 title to RV (or Paulin etc) With Herlings there it means if AC gets hurt they still have just as a good a shot at the MXGP title. I think KTMs problem is they have no-one ... more »
Added reply in a thread RV - first ride in europe (helmet cam footage) 10/19/2014 12:52 AM
Roll on Qatar . RV looking fast but he's RV so that's no surprise. I think more riders than AC and RV will win motos though, the field is stacked with talent, you won't want to get a bad start next year!

American riders as a whole have never been better outdoors, certainly in the last 20 years. JMB won in 1991 and Roczen won this year in your own country so clearly it's been a myth for a long time. Top GP riders are as good as the top Americans. You ... more »
Added reply in a thread RV to GP's it's got to be more than $$$$ 9/30/2014 10:45 AM
Something new after years on the US SX/MX circuit and go win a World motocross title and see the world while he's doing it, plus an American hasn't won it in 20 years. I don't know why more US riders don't do it. It's the World Championship after all ... more »

Huge respect for RV for stepping up and racing the World Championship. Everyone is on an equal playing field now with no home country advantage., If he wins it will be the biggest achievement of his career. Can he win the title? Yes. Will he win the ... more »

He's the top guy in the World not Europe, he races the World Championship. He just has bad luck for some reason. Won the last four straight moto remember and came from way back to win his qualifier and was about to pass Dungey and Nagl in that first ... more »
Added reply in a thread Our strategy has to change 9/29/2014 11:06 AM
The USA have a huge advantage at this race, it hasn't went their way the last couple of years, but they will win more often than not, I wouldn't worry too much, it's nothing to do with strategy. The difference is just the fact these smaller countries ... more »
Added reply in a thread Schiffer out for MXDN 9/22/2014 10:43 AM
Get well soon to Schiffer and everyone else that got injured. Horrible so close to the Nations. I hope Hsu will ride, be very good experience for him in the future. Roczen, Nagl Hsu could be a winning team for Germany again in a couple of years.

Because they picked the team in July when Tixier wasn't as good as he is now. Ferrandis is just as fast as Tixier he just needs to stay off the ground.

It's not happening. Scotland voted no for independence so Simpson and Wilson will continue to ride for GB!
Added reply in a thread looking bad for Herlings 9/14/2014 2:09 PM
Yes! lol Herlings was unbelievable but Tixier pulled it off under immense pressure too. Shame one had to lose today. One of the best races I've seen, so nerve wrecking!
Added reply in a thread looking bad for Herlings 9/14/2014 6:58 AM
He doesn't look too good when he was walking. This track has some big jumps, which means hard landings for a tender femur. I thought he would be ok when I heard he was riding but now i'm not so sure. With the way he is limping around, he is mad for trying ... more »

Yeah i thought there would be a good time in between but wasn't sure of the date. That covers next years MXDN team too! GB have two more chances to win possibly in the immediate future lol. Although with the Watsons, Sterry and Anstie it could be an ... more »

They ride on an Irish license (MCUI) so are eligible for both teams. Since Ireland chose Gordon first when he was young I think he stuck with them when he could have rode for GB in his prime. Which would have given GB quite the team with him and Dobb ... more »
