They'd have to bring in the necessary 500 units of their 250F first to even pass homologation.

We were joking over a group chat about it earlier, apparently Keefer is blocked too!

I forgot to ask Ping if he is as well...

I read another privateer's comment a few days ago that he was denied due to sign ups being capped at 100 entries. Probably shouldn't have waited until less than a week before to sign up.

No literal, as it's highly unlikely the second spot (for example, if it is Webb) will be getting that high of a contract this go-around.

Just a guess, I don't know how much I'd label anything I say as "educated".

Rides will be as thin here as there, the only quality 250 spots left are with JGR...which will fill up quickly. 450 wise, there’s only one, maybe two spots he could throw his name in that for...but there’s a lot of guys contending for those spots too. ... more »

The 2018 models just dropped for moto and were reduced in price significantly. The EXR is technically a 19 model but I’d say it’ll be late in the year before there’s a “19” Mx model.

There wasn’t any livin 100 money, just some bikes and a bit of parts. I’d say there’s a strong chance though, that Suzuki will have additional 450s outside of JGR. They’re down to help smaller teams or even individuals, which I’m stoked to see. I wish ... more »

JGR was committed to running three bikes this year if needed, that's why I have them listed. They were going to continue to field Nicoletti when Bogle came back, but there wasn't budget for pay. So they let him free to pursue a good gig with Husky. If ... more »
