Just got home and decided to skip the MX2 motos and watch the first MXGP moto so that I could catch the second moto live, and all I can say is that holy shit what a crazy race! This is probably one of the best seasons ever when considering how crazy ... more »

Shoutout to Meico Vettik to getting 2nd overall in EMX250 on the smoker!

So here’s the pic. I correct myself that it’s not a full Yamaha but a Yamaha engine fitted in a Kawi frame.

He rode for two years on the 125 and he changed to the KTM for the 2nd year when he won the championship. Might be that he changed midway through the first season, but I’m pretty sure they atleast started on different bikes with Savaste even if they ... more »

Here’s Fernandez on his ”Kawasaki”

But since you mentioned Savaste, Brian Moreau was his team mate at the time in EMX125, and while Savaste raced a KTM disguised as a Kawasaki Moreau rode a Yamaha disguised as a Kawi. So two Kawasaki team mates ... more »

Best thing about today was hands down that it wasn’t the Vialle vs Geerts show in MX2 and Gajser vs Herlings show in MXGP. It was far from it, with a bunch of guys in both classes showing great speed. Hopefully it stays like this!

Aaaand he throws it away. That could have been way worse.

The B class ran some of their motos later in the days than the Pro Sport class.

Probably shouldn’t ask, but here it goes. You’re basing this on what?

Agreed on Herlings not looking like himself. He’s making a lot of small mistakes, and he’s not flowing around like he usually does. It was the same thing at Valkenswaard. Now he seemed like he started to get going, and then when Seewer took him wide ... more »

Man the MXGP class is tight. There’s not much room for a bad start or mistakes, you got to be on it from start to finish. Would have loved to see Coldenhoff stay on track, would have been an awesome battle with Gajser.

What a horrible moto for Geerts.

MX2 qualifying results looks intresting, hopefully it will stay that unpredictable

w00t
as for MXGP, like I said earlier in the thread just because it’s sand it doesn’t mean an automatic victory for Herlings.

Yep, and lucky it slowed down and didn’t throw him off at full speed.

It has been a fun week of racing. Glad we got to witness a pretty normal Loretta’s amid everything that’s going on.

Deegan is so dialed in. He’s so fundamentaly sound it looks like he’s barely trying. Awesome to watch.

I would like to know the real story too. I’m not too familiar with the starting procedure at the amateur races since it’s different from what we have in europe, but over here there’s always a guy who checks through the gate that everyone is ready to ... more »

It’s a weird thing with the the Deegans, I think the first times talk about them popped up here on the forum already years ago when he was just moving up from 50cc’s and conversations about them pop up from time to time. I know Brian was a controversial ... more »
