Glad he is ok. It can be a lot of things. I hope that doesn't reduce too much his confidence.

I am not sure it works that way, in my mind the rider can only chose a single digit number the year they earned it, not 1 or 2 years later. If someone knows, please confirm

I did. And of course I think he could have stayed on the track and still pull the holeshot and a top 3-5 start. Quite a brain fart tbh. Then a second one as after exiting the track he should have re entered after most of the field. Basic rookie mistake, ... more »

Really weird stuff. He was actually pulling the holeshot or top 3-5 start then like completely lost balance (probably a rut) and went off track. For sure he should not have re entered the track as quickly and should get docked a few positions.

Sorry to quite disagree, I think the risk factor is more making people including introduced ones running away from the sport than attracting new curious people (although this year is quite the opposite). Adrenaline yes, but fear of big injuries or 100k ... more »

It is a topic i wanted to start a couple week ago: Airbags vest are now mandatory in world rally raid. I am very curious about this, to see if it really works, as if it does it should become mandatory asap. https://www.advpulse.com/adv-news/alpinestars-announces-new-off-road-airbag-system/ ... more »

Yes, with a thermal cleaner (pulitore termico) That may help too: https://www.youtube.com/results?search_query=yz125+bottom+end+rebuild But be very careful when re assembling the gear box, it is tricky. Good luck.

Something to consider is Deagan is also racing 125 now. I guess switching bike back and forth is reducing his speed by 0.1% on both. I have zero problem with attitude, closing doors while watching where the other rider is is a way not to crash both. ... more »

It is quite the least important point, it is not the big picture. Any racing is a big bonus in 2020 and 2021, so kuddos to the promoters for doing their best to make it happen.

Well, it is a new one, but i can't say it is really legit as one of Stewart's bikes.

Hill totally missed the rounds at SLC. But remember he was 7th in the standings close to Mookie in 5th before that (in front of almost half of the names you just mentioned). Top 10 is also where he finished the championship. Hill has about the same speed ... more »

I am not sure but I think the first problem was Suzuki not listening the market at all ; offering 65/85/100 that are really updated, keeping and ideally updating their two stokes, making significant cosmetic changes on their let us say 2013 bike, and ... more »

Added reply in a thread Next Frenchy 11/9/2020 8:57 AM

I am not too worried ; as there are about 10 properly paid rides in 450 in mxgp, whereas the class is deeeep (any top 10 rider can win a moto at the mxdn and in my mind in the nationals), there is still a high probability that some top 250 riders need ... more »

Ryno's rant didn't come at the right time for most (especially because the crash had nothing to do with the rider's level, he was fast and experienced). But I think he is right on most points. I would even add that tracks should be slowed down and big ... more »

Good for you. It looked ok on the pics but sometimes it is indeed better to pass in front of the bike when it is too roached, especially when the price differential is too big.

Idk but the fork looks strangely low, probably need a real service. You may hear a weird metallic sound by pushing it. No leak may equal no oil in this case too. Check all the bolts (plus check if dented/welded swingarm, dented rims, pegs shape, radiators,
