Consistently top 10 in Nationals by over the last half of the series with a final moto podium. 3rd overall in 250 SX East in his rookie year. Dude is more than deserving of continued factory support. Once he gets some more confidence/experience, I truly ... more »

Ooops. Properly grainy too. Perfect for conspiracy theories! Also, c'mon...throw away your orange rinds.

Added reply in a thread Shane McElrath 2021? 10/15/2020 2:24 PM

McElrath was very strong outdoors, save for a few motos and took the SX East championship fight all the way to the final round. He continues to be one of the top talents in the US, yet you're all trashing him like he isn't worth a dime. Maybe Shane didn't ... more »

Added reply in a thread Last Factory 125/250 efforts 10/13/2020 1:25 PM

Ben Coisy rode SX Lites East for Factory Honda in 2008. I guess he replaced Townley. Then don't forget Ashley Fiolek on Team Honda from 2009-2012. Not the 250 class, technically, but it was a factory CRF250R, as was Sayaka Kenishiro's who rode under ... more »

Bummer to see him go. He was a great rider and always seemed very professional off the bike as well. Anyone know who will replace him on the KRT squad?

Comparing the 1st and 2nd motos, it seems she's in better shape than a lot of the other riders around her speed. She was toward the bottom of the charts for lap time in Moto 1, but in Moto 2 she was on par with 25th-40th or so but her lap times were ... more »

Yes he's delivering to an extent, but he's not James Stewart or Ricky Carmichael. And it's easy to be impressed by the talent of any of the riders in the top 15 (especially in the 250 class). If Alex Martin or Jo Shimoda (also a rookie on the same team ... more »

He's also had more screen time than just about every rider aside from Ferrandis, but he's yet to win a race. How does that work? I don't care how much promise someone has, give riders (and their sponsors) the airtime they deserve.

Started new thread MXGP Drone Footage - Città di Mantova 10/2/2020 7:36 AM

The first full lap of MXGP Moto 1. With all of the drone usage out there now, you'd think this would be more common, but I've never seen this type of coverage from a pro motocross race. Yes, the spider cam thing in SX basically provides the same angle, ... more »

Not quite sure what you're getting at here. Courtney did a 360 with her body. I wasn't talking about the bike.

Added reply in a thread So who was the oldest to win an AMA National Motocross title? Any title? Will it be Osborne? 9/29/2020 11:44 AM

I really do think this moment... sent Osborne's and Savatgy's careers on new trajectories. Osborne has pretty much been on fire since that day (now has three 250 titles and is on his way to his first 450), and Savatgy can't seem to find his stride (only ... more »

Full 360! I believe it's the same jump that Bobryshev crashed off of as well.

Awesome accomplishment. Don't care that she was an alternate. She didn't finish last, so that's something right there. The skill and fitness required to even approach that level of racing is just mind boggling for any human being. Really hope this gets ... more »

It's an ICE dirt bike. Geometry, power, weight...there's only so much that can change. There's a reason that 20 year-old bikes can still be competitive today: Not a whole lot has changed because manufacturers have more or less found the sweet spot of ... more »
