In 1989 the best GP rider wasn’t racing the 500s, In 1996 there was still some top talent in the 500 class. In 2020 all the best guys race one class.There is your answer. Same as In the AMA, getting rid of the 500 class finally made one premier class. ... more »

Damn this is a blow. Listening to Reeds last podcast and Harts on whisky throttle talk about the feld and MX sports not being friendly for outside sponsors and now we just lost JGR. Obviously Covid is not helping but this trend of losing teams continues. ... more »

I disagree with a lot of this, but to each there own. For Roczen sure no matter were he raced barring injuries the writing was on the wall he was gonna win. I think Musquin got about the most out of his career. He wasn’t a Herlings level prodigy and ... more »

What do you mean with how MM, Moreau and KR panned out?

Added reply in a thread Next Frenchy 11/8/2020 9:34 AM

Honda has been reaping the rewards ever since KTM matched. Crazy to think that them “losing” out on Herlings was the best thing to happen to them from a championship perspective.

Added reply in a thread Gajser’s place among the GP greats 11/4/2020 8:54 AM

I was waiting for this, he had moto wins and crashed O/As away with Herlings there. But the argument of “you only won trope cause this guy was gone” can literally be applied to everyone that has ever raced outside of RC, and Herlings is included in there ... more »

Added reply in a thread Gajser’s place among the GP greats 11/4/2020 7:49 AM

The praise for the KTM boys is warranted but giving Gajser his due takes nothing away from the others. It has to be impossible now to not give Gajsers his going into 2021.

Started new thread Gajser’s place among the GP greats 11/4/2020 6:17 AM

Coming into the year it seemed like it was all about the KTM trio with the two big chiefs joined by the kid that broke Herlings single season 250 records. And of course who can forget Lewis Philips with the all time face palm of saying he doesn’t think ... more »

If I’m Gajser or Vialle I’m not going near anyone.

Added reply in a thread Gautier Paulin is putting an end to his career 10/29/2020 4:06 PM

With him and DeSalle retiring it’s signaling the end of an era. Obviously AC is still going on but he’s a freak of nature. It’s a nice change seeing these guys retire with long careers and relatively healthy unlike in the US it seems.

Prados race craft is way beyond his years he was hitting most of the bumps but didn’t make the big mistakes and as always gets the start. Gajser threw away another win but showed when push comes to shove he is faster than the rest. Just a matter of time ... more »

What makes you think your last statement will come true? What will it take for people to respect Tim.

If AC wants number 10, the story will be written here. He has to come in without Herlings with the mentality of no one can beat me. This is go time for him. As many mistakes and bike problems as Tim has had he’s pulling away.

Depends on how big of a jump Jett makes, if Forkner and Cooper can stay healthy. Really if all three of em can stay healthy that’s all for outdoors. Indoors plenty of guys can beat him but he could/should be a title contender as long as he is not racing ... more »

We also haven’t seen a fully fit injury free Prado either. He’s had his own issues.

Added reply in a thread Prado or Herlings 10/12/2020 8:28 AM

450 titles probably Prado, but if Gajser wins again that will be 3 450 titles. So do either of those guys end up with more than Tim? Herlings probably not but Prado maybe? That’s a lot to ask for. The KTM boys steal the limelight while Gajser gets it ... more »

Jett has a point. He’s funny and has charisma and he knows it. Cooper bringing a dog on the podium? I don’t really care but I see Jetts point and he ain’t wrong. You would never see that in MXGP, Moto GP, etc. You wouldn’t see it in Supercross either. ... more »
