Goosebumps were had watching this. Awesome. The part where he finally gets it started and takes off, it makes you want to cheer for him through the computer screen. Ha. Good thing his mom made him keep his helmet on!

Great video even from that distant shot you can really see the emotion. Good stuff
I don't know how anyone feels but I sure don't feel any less about Goose after this. He still has to be one of if not the best mechanic ever.

4 strokes are so unpredictable you really have no idea when shit like this is gonna happen. If it was a 2 stroke, then it would be a problem.

Yep they never ever had weird one off electrical problems on two strokes. I actually have less problems with my 4 strokes than I had on my 2 strokes.....

I haven't had many problems with my 2 strokes, but honestly with all this new high tech stuff, fuel pumps and injectors and all it's bound to bring more problems.

me too, not to mention they always fouled a plug just when the 2 minute board goes up! Nope those things were no more reliable, if anything much much less especially in mud/sand/rain when clutch use is even more of a factor.. and that's 30+ years of racing experience talking

But back to Ryan, I guess that last race only motivated him to go into kill mode!

dont screw with me, i am old and feeling grumpy..

usually mechanic has the race goggles. rider takes his hot lap goggles to the line (no tear offs). guessing this is why goose had the gogs. specially on a rain/mud day...at least most handled it this way when i wrenched.

I mean there's no doubt that it was the best ride of the year. But dungey is a legend now?

Fans love to throw out the hyperbolic statements. Maybe if Dungey wins the title then this moment will be a defining moment and be remembered forever, but if RV wins then this will be not nearly as big of a deal.

Awesome video, however. What an unbelievable turn of events. So cool!

What makes a legend in mx? Titles? Multiple race wins? Rookie titles? Rookie race wins? Persona? Determination? Longevity? Hype?

Who are legends to you? RC, Bailey, Hannah, Decoster etc. certainly are.

What about Windham, Lechien, Bradshaw, Lusk etc?

What about Reynard, Roncada, Pastrana, Mataisevich etc.?

What about Factory Phil, Larry Ward, Hughes, Antunez etc?

The only limiting factors in my mind that either of the Ryans aren't quite legends are time and nostalgia. They'll both be legends. Stamp it!

Wait a fuckin minute...last year everybody waas saying how CLEARLY the suzuki was the best bike. no DNFs. handles so good even reed said so blah blah blah. now you same people are downing Suzuki. kick em while their down. YOU should be concerned with Honda. I wonder if Reed is that gung ho riding Hondas jock after it spit him off, then blew up. they need to fix that chassis before it sabotages another honda championship run.
