He’s also left handed. So that could be why his left hand is the one he uses more.

And his first ever 250 win in 2013 in Salt Lake City. The same race Roczen failed to qualify in and Tomac faded to 9th. If 2013 is any indication (it’s not) we are in for a wild ride.

The SMX Cup in Germany was sparsely attended, would probably be the closest to no fans I could remember. http://www.motocross.tv/video/2016/10/8/smx-supermotocross-riders-and-manufacturers-cup-germany-october-8-2016-video

I love pulling holeshots without using a start device, start map, or roasting a fresh rear tire on a concrete pad. Throttle control and technique is all you really need.

Was planning on going a 3 week trip to Italy to go to the Maggoria MXGP, Monaco F1, and Mugello MotoGP. That’s not happening now. Waiting to see if Mammoth is happening, being postponed to later in the summer? That’s always a couple thousand all in (parts/tires/entries/condo/fuel). ... more »

Because motocross careers are so short you almost have to break it down to 5 year intervals because the turnover is so often. 70-75: Jones, Smith, Distefeno, Karsmaker, Ellis 76-80: Hannah, Weinert, Glover, Bell, Howerton 81-85: Barnett, Bailey, Omara, ... more »

I see Nascar infields being used. They are some of the only venues that will not have packed schedules. Football and baseball will be in full swing if Supercross is going.

RC, Stewart, and Reed were so dang good. Their speed and intensity was on another level. 13 years later that pace would still be competitive.

From what I heard he was left searching for a ride after Dakar because his contract expired. Glad he was able to find a spot and gets to keep rallying, he’s making great progress and is a contender.

Added reply in a thread Andrew Short to Yamaha 3/13/2020 9:39 AM

After Shorty gave his “teammate” Toby his rear wheel at Dakar he should have had a ride for as long as he wanted one. Glad he found a landing spot.

Does this include 2003, the year he raced MXGP and 650cc class at the same time? That year altered a lot of stats. In both wins and starts, etc.

If you don’t like the energy drink, get the Monster Coffee. Works for a pit pass too. I’ve done it at 3 races this year already, and 4 after San Diego.
