I was just going to say the same thing. The last times in the USA for MXDN everyone on the podiums got mad love from the crowd. Last year in France and this year we get boos. Fucking classy, and I am sure most of them are posters here.
LOL. Says the country that cheered when Roczen crashed in his qualifying heat at Thunder Valley. Don't act like your shit don't stink
Way to spoil a great day of MX..
I cheered for them las year. I cant understand booing. It was an awesome day to be a motocross fan.
Yeah, Herlings and AC are pretty impressive in the sand. It would seem they would not stuggle that bad over here as we would over there overall. Granted, our top guys would probably win on the harder tracks over there but really struggle in the sand whereas they are still good on the hard stuff so would do better over here. So I guess that would make them better all around but only cause they ride that stuff. Its a little bit of humble pie for sure.
Ugly? What about that streaker on the podium...now that was ugly!
Says the country who boo's there own riders - RC, JS... LOL!
im completely fine with how our riders did. i know with out a doubt that they gave it their all.
also, dont act like americans dont boo. they boo our own riders.
Cheering when someone comes off is just as bad IMO. I'm sure there was booing there; I never watched the interviews from that race.
Heck, you can hear people shouting shit out at riders at every week of the nationals. People telling Roczen to go back to Germany. Even Dungey gets heckled.
All I'm saying is, don't act like saints.
I'm extremely happy to see the GP riders beat the National riders and for America to lose the title (just being honest here), however there should remain an certain level of respect - after all, it only means so much in the first place because America has been so strong. Booing the riders was so fu@king lame! It's not like Ryan, Blake and Justin can help what people type. Show some respect God damn it!
But having said that it thankfully didn't last long. Idiots in every country and on both sides of this National vs GP thing I guess.
Great rides by the Germans and Belgians. They earned it! KTM was impressive across the board as well.Not sure what to say about team USA. Dungey is clearly capable of riding fast, but he has consistently shown he has a weakness when it comes to passing. Did he have bike problems after his wreck?? Barcia was pretty solid and Baggett was okay. In the end they were schooled in the sand, the results speak for themselves.
Great event, hopefully we'll see a bit more respect for the likes of JH and AC now that we've seen what they can do when they're in their element. The World Championship is for real.
US battled hard, no shame in that performance at all.
