Yeah everything is in place apparantly, as long as he gets the thumbs up from his doctor about his knee, then he will race MXGP in 2015. Unless he makes a dramatic u-turn of course lol

Added reply in a thread Is it time to change the format at the MX des Nations? 8/11/2014 12:17 PM
I would like to see the MXDN stay but also have a Ryder cup style race of Europe v USA. Maybe have Ryder Cup one year then MXDN the next. Americans keep trying to say they beat "Europe" at the MXDN..but they don't and never have. Winning the MXDN has ... more »

Why would any mx fan not watch the World Championship? It's on CBS sports network already this year and the the MX GP online stuff is brilliant... no ads.
Added reply in a thread RV to miss SX? 8/6/2014 12:59 PM
Racing GPs with Rattray as his teammate at Factory Kawi. I think it's pretty much done now and just needs rubber stamped and announced. Unless RV or Kawi Japan changes their mind at the last minute or something. But I was at the GP in Lommel and seems ... more »
Added reply in a thread France will NOT win the MXDN this year 7/28/2014 2:29 PM
Bingo. All are pretty similar speed. If anyone should be annoyed it should be Tixier not Musquin as Tixier is second in the series. I don't really get the hysteria over Marvin not getting picked.. Not much to desperate them all and Musquin wasn't having ... more »
Added reply in a thread Herlings Injured 7/21/2014 4:16 PM
Herlings was stuck in third gear towards the end of the moto he beat RV. Terrible news and puts a dampner on the MXDN. Get well soon JH.
Added reply in a thread Herlings really? 7/19/2014 10:34 AM
Herlings just gave the facts, he has lapped those guys. And beat RV too ( that wasn't on a sand track). But as he said racing Americans in America is a different ball game. They could beat him at Unadilla, American guys are brilliant on home turf. But ... more »

Go Rory! Hopefully get his third major tomorrow and do it in front of the home crowd If Rory doesn't win hopefully Rickie will.
Added reply in a thread If RV retires, who jumps ship to ride Kawi 7/15/2014 1:44 PM
Tomac has to be the no.1 choice if he is available after that maybe Pourcel?
Added reply in a thread JEFFREY HERLINGS #84 UPDATE...the parts he is bringing to unadilla.. 7/14/2014 2:30 AM
I think Baggett could be a handful for Herlings at Unadilla, Pourcel loves that place too. Herlings would be smart to ride press day to at least get some time on the track, the thing that could hurt him is lack of time to get used to the track. I expect ... more »

No Searle might get the second HRC ride or go to Kawi if RV doesn't. Yeah maybe £ has something to do with it.
Added reply in a thread GP silly season 2015 7/14/2014 1:58 AM
Searle will probably go to Kawi if RV doesn't or get the second factory Honda ride? I can't see him on a second tier team just yet, but next year is a big year for him. He has to start performing and getting podiums. Where is Bobby going next year? I'm ... more »

Pity, was looking forward to the three fastest guys in the world atm all on big bikes against each other. Only RV would have been missing from the big four. Will this encourage USA to attend now that Cairoli who won the last four motos he raced in at ... more »

Team USA winning the MXDN doesn't prove US Nationals are more competitive than GPs... Most of the GP riders don't have two other strong riders to back them up. It's not like GPs or Europe send their best three riders as an FIM team like USA can to represent ... more »
Added reply in a thread MXDN Team U.S.A announced 7/12/2014 6:03 AM
Exactly.. that's what Belgium did last year. USA aren't racing team Europe of Cairoli, Herlings and Roczen, it's a countries race and those three don't have teammates as strong as USA. Team USA just need to be consistent. All those guys are capable of ... more »

I've interviewed Cooper twice ( the first time was ironically in France)... nice guy and pretty respectful. I wouldn't read too much into it, I'd say it was just in the heat of the moment. Rivalries are good for the sport anyway. Cooper is riding fantastic ... more »
