I think it's Ronnie that has the best "save" of all time. MXA ran a multi-exposure photo sequnce of it from an old supercross.

Mine got torn to shreds from my buddy's rear wheel when I fell onto it and it stuffed me up under the seat. Tore me up really good,but the jersey was absolutely mutilated!

One day when racing a series race, a friend asked me if I wanted to enter his YFZ450 in the quad beginner class. I did, and got smoked! By beginners! (I was a +30 B winner at the time on an MX bike.) Quads are hard, man. I don't know how they do it.

That's a can of worms. I've heard all three possibilities stated as true: that he left, that he was booted, and that it was mutual. The juiciest rumor I remember hearing is that the final straw was when Alex Van Halen contracted a strange, rare VD from ... more »

$900 Grand when they were new. Who knows now? Man, it hurts me to see such a beautiful car get wiped out. I'm going to scrimp and save for the next 20 years and I'll be lucky to own my first and probably only Porsche by then. It sure as heck won't be ... more »

Yes, as do DiStefano, Reid, Glover, Jobe, Carlqvist, Thorpe, Hansen, Smith, Tripes... It's hard to list everybody... It would be cool to see MXA do a "top 100" list of MX racers like Rolling Stone does for rock bands.

I love it. I'm super impressed by people who can fab stuff. When it's all done, have you considered what color to paint it? That car would look awesome with a "tough" color like flat gray or gun metal. Either that or a ridiculous color like lime green ... more »

I always think of Windham first when I think of guys who could have been all-time greats if not for RC. I hadn't thought about Reed but maybe that's because he has two SX championships and an outdoor MX title; he doesn't seem to have been "robbed" quite ... more »

Let's adjust the parameters to get a little more clarity: All the best riders of all time (up to now, that is, Dave

Forced air would probably only come into play at much higher speeds than what we get on an MX track. It may be just to increase the airbox volume.

Right, which is why this is such an open debate. We'll never get any definitive answers, but it's fun to bench race.

Added reply in a thread A new angle on the "All Time" discussion 4/6/2020 2:25 PM

I'll give you that, especially with Stanton, Dowd and Hughes. However, the training standard they had to live up to withers in comparison to the RC days, and I don't think it quite lives up to the standards that Ward and O'Mara were setting.

Sure, but since we don't know the names, we'll have to leave out the 2039 e-MX Champion.

OK, so you guys have some valid points, but that's what this is about. Who would win between Mark Barnett and Steve Lamson in 2020 on 250fs?

Do you guys want to know why I'm not afraid of the Coronavirus thing being just a bullshit coverup for a massive governmental takeover? Because of all you dudes. God bless you and your scary-looking guns.

PS - I'm thinking outdoor motocross here. Supercross would throw a whole other wrench into the equation.

I don't need to remind anyone here that we cannot really compare riders from different eras. We can't truly know who is the fastest of all time because we cannot compare riders in their primes on the same equipment. But what if we could? Let's say you ... more »
