Jacob Hayes biggest problem from becoming a star isn't his riding it's his teeth (Sorry)

With Grant securing a ride with Kawi & so many riders on other teams not as good as REED not including what he's already accomplished. It's dumbfounded why he can't find a team before returning in a year or two?
To sponsors he's going to get plenty of TV time no matter where he running & even more if he's in the front. With Canard retirement I was hoping he would land at KTW specially with Dinner retirement to. But it was Brock Tickel? I've recently heard he'll be on a Husky but what team or team at all today? Either way Husky or KTM he "could" be the first rider to win on 5 of the 6 manufacturers since he's already won on all the Japanese made bikes...

I take nothing away from street [one of the greats] but after REED lost traction for that triple & Stewart past him he lost his rhythm, & while Stewart was faster than RC in the whoops [usually REED specialty] RC kept messing up the triple in the rhythm section. Costing him time & the win.

I'm a big McGrath fan but this video of 3 other SX hall of fame riders makes you think as great as their careers were #2 #3 & #4 in SX wins. How much greater they would have been without the other 2 (make your choice) but wouldn't have been great for fans...

Ages It's because of Track Design & the bikes. This video was the beginning of the 4Stroke takeover following when everyone made the switch in 2006. CR & RV have both complained today's races are based on the start, you can't come through the pack like you use to. In fact RV said if you can't even podium unless you have a good start up front.

I miss sx in the mid 2000’s. Shit is just boring now, tracks suck and it’s always 1 rider that runs away with it.

I don't like the back side plastics at all...

With that said this is "Thomas Kjer Olsen's" 250 4Stroke bike for the MXGP's. But after what went down this year at "RedBull Straight Rythem" adding the 2Stroke class where a rider like "Sipes" racing a 250 2Stroke in both the 2Stroke class & the Lites class against 250 4Strokes with great fan approval. So this shows why the US AMA SX/MX & the FIM MXGP's needs to do the same & follow Australian MX & Canadian MX @CMRCRacing who allow the 250 2Strokes race the 250 4Strokes. With no Great advantage to either because it comes down to rider style & skiills...
The 2Strokes are cheaper specially to race & maintain, which would benefit the smaller teams & specially privateers. All this would help our sport grow..

I heard REED was likely to be on a Husky for 2018 but not sure the team?
I was hoping he could sell himself to (RedBull KTM) to replace the retired "Tray Canard" specially following Dungey's retirement. REED loved the Suzuki Team with then manager "Roger DeCoster" (now @KTM) and his mechanic "Mike Gosselaar/Goose"
REED going to retire in a year or two (Depending) so if he was smart he would talk with "Goose" if they sign him they could have "Goose"when he retires (one of the best mechanics of all time.) He should sale himself he better than "Broc Tickel" & riders on May teams [Not including what he's already accomplished] He should also point out to team [specially sponsors he going to get a lot of camera time no matter where he finishes & even more in he's up in the front. Ending with his goals to [win a few races to add to his 44wins and take #3 all time from his friend RC & take the most SX start record from Mike Larocco @228 REED already owns the most podiums by a lot @131 & so if he wins on the roomered Husky or the KTM I was hoping for he would be the first & only rider to win on 5 of the 6 manufacturers "he's already won on all 4 of the Japanese Bikes"
Anything beyond that would be cherry he's always finished in the top 5 in points so with luck & consistency a championship I possible...

I Understand "J-Mart" contracts are already signed and 2018 decisions probably already made, but I think he to should stay on the 250 for another year. At least when it comes to SX and chase that title one more time andmaybe make the move up outdoors MX...




But at the same time we need to force riders to move up [based on points or maybe like the MXGPs age.] Davalosis moving back down from the Husky 450 to a Pro Circuit 250 Kawi?

The 2Stroke is cheaper, specially to race and maintain. This would benefit the smaller teams and specially the Privateers. Obvious this would make most fans happy but also riders & help our sport grow to 2008 financial collapse levels and beyond??

Great Video,
& while I understand J-Mart contract & decisions are probably already made for 2018. But I think he should spend another year on the 250 when it comes to SX anyway & go aftervthat title one more time & maybe make the move to the 450 outdoors in MX.
Because slot of riders are staying in the 250s [many to long we need to force riders to move up based on points or like the MXGPs age] I mean Davalos is moving back down from the Husky450 to a Pro Circuit Kawi?

With what we seen this year in straight rythem with the 2Stroke class racing [Sipes road the 250 2Stroke in the 2Stroke class and against 250 4Strokes in the lites] While the US is usually a leader, this continues to show the US AMA SX/MX Needs to follow Australian MX and Canadian MX @CRMCRacing who allow the 250 2Strokes race against the 250 4Strokes. With no great advantage to either, because it comes down to rider Style and Skills...

MOST Racers Grow-up Riding 2Strokes Throughout Their Amateur Careers. So I Believe MOST Fans & Racers Would Enjoy The "Lites Class" SX&MX Being A Mix Of 250 2&4Strokes!

[4Strokes have low end Torque while 2Strokes have that Hi revving horse power! Not to mention lighter & Safer without engine breaking & all that internal inertia in a crash...

The 2Stroke hasn't "faded into the past", it's the industry that's unfair & makes it hard allowing 4Strokes 50% MORE CC's than the 2Stroke! (Unnecessary with the Technology of today) WORSE track Designs favor the Torque & jumps, making riders lazy & hurting racing{REED) & dependent on Starts{RV).

Hold a servay at any race SXorMX & it will show (Fans, Racers & Riders) like or even pefur 2Strokes.
So while Fans may Love them, their also CHEAPER to (BUY, RACE & MAINTAIN) this would help the sport Grow [Like & Beyond The "Glory Days"] This would help the Smaller teams but Specially the Privateers.
THE PRICE DIFFERENCE IS HUGE WHEN WERE TALKING RACING 4Strokes THEY'RE MORE EXPENSIVE SPECIALLY TO RACE & MAINTAIN RACING PARTS.

This just continues to show why the US AMA SX/MX NEEDS to follow "Canadian MX" & "Australian MX" & allow the 250 2Stroke race the 250 4Strokes. Neither has had a Great advantage, it's come down to Rider Style/Skills. Then maybe even the MXGPs will follow...

REED really liked a KTM he road while still running TwoTwoMsports so couldn't take the ride do to other sponsors. But since then has complained about how the KTM/Husky turn? Lastly to any of the (Manufacturer Teams) while REED is a SX Only with also only 1or2yrs left, he still can get on the podium & possibly a couple of wins but either way REED will get the bike "Air Time" on TV...

With Dungey & Canard retirement at KTM I was hoping they would pickup REED & his mechanic "Goose" who both enjoyed working with/for Roger when still at Suzuki in 09?
FYI whatever you think of REED age all there's other teams picking up much less qualified riders (That NOT Including What REED Already Accomplished)

(Taking Unnecessary Risk To Win Races Rather Than Just Beating His Title Rival/s) He even said what he learned from former champ Ryan Dungey, (who Im NOT a BIG fan of) & ot worked ET3=2017 MX Champion...

The 2Strokes have that high-revving HP while the 4Strokes have that low end torque the 4Strokes also has engine braking. But the 2Strokes are lighter & safer without that internal momentum which also brings up why the two stroke would be great for the racers in the lights class not just because they're cheap to race & maintain but because most amateurs race 2Strokes & to have a mix of 2Strokes & 4Strokes in the lights Pro class would be great for the new Pros and fans alike...
