Added reply in a thread Is Tim Gajser the worlds best rider.. 2/19/2021 12:39 PM

I met him a few times too and had the chance to make interviews of him for the fans in France. He is the nicest pro rider I met, really. Even though it was really cool to have Hunter Lawrence, Glenn Coldenhoff and few others that were really funny, Tim ... more »

Calvin is about as good as Do, maybe Thomas is slighly better and I guess TD773 got more racing experience in the usa. Calvin has a smooth riding style. I commented a local race where Thomas won and Calvin ended up 3rd some times ago and it was close ... more »

He litterally had one 1/3 of the track on Craig/Nichols and 2/3 of the track on Forkner at one point. That is a good cap...

I'm putting Sexton on the top spot. No joke, I think he gets it in 2021.

Added reply in a thread Jett Lawrence 12/5/2020 11:56 AM

Depends if he stays on 2 wheels or not. From what I heard his SX prep is going very well and most of the guys that saw him ride I've talked to told me he will be the man to beat in the 250 class.

Nope, only Jett got Red Bull if I'm correct.

If you want a little idea of the list of young French riders right now here is the final standings of the 2020 French championship : MX2 1/ BOURDON Anthony 101 2/ AUBIN Arnaud 95 3/ GOUPILLON Pierre 90 4/ CRAWFORD Nathan 89 5/ TORIANI Enzo 84 6/ CHARLIER ... more »

This. There is plenty of riders coming up in France. Makes me thinks of Pierre Dubost for example. The dude is not even considering EMX125 but he was as fast (sometimes even faster) than Prugnieres, Soulimani, Grau and the others. Kiliann Poll is also ... more »

I would say Quentin Prugnieres could be the one. The others will probably stay in Europe.

I have met him a few times these past few years, and you just can't dislike the man he is. He is so kind and careful to all the people around him... I remember him at a party made for the fans, he was suppose to leave at a certain hour and he was late ... more »

View this post on Instagram C’est avec une grande émotion que je mets un terme à ma carrière. J’ai dédié toute ma vie à mon sport, cela a fait de moi l’homme que je suis aujourd’hui. J’ai vécu une merveilleuse ascension en 2007 lorsque j’ai signé mon premier contrat pro et remporté mon premier titre. Je suis tellement reconnaissant d’avoir pu me battre avec les meilleures pilotes du monde, gagné la confiance des marques les plus prestigieuses, porté le maillot de ma nation durant onze années consécutives et remporté cette épreuve. J’aime le challenge, la performance, la rigueur, ma volonté de donner le meilleur. J’ai connu des moments de joie inégalables, j’ai mené les championnats du monde MX2 et MXGP, chanté la Marseillaise avec mon public, des émotions gravées, le sport unit tellement. Rempli d’humilité je vous remercie pour tout, je ne vous oublierai pas! #GP21 . It is with a great deal of emotion that I have decided to call «time» on my career. I have dedicated my whole life to my sport and it has made me the man I am today. I had a wonderful awakening in 2007 when I signed my first pro contract and won my first title. It set me on a path I had dreamt of. I'm so grateful that I got to fight with the best riders in the world, gain the trust of the most prestigious companies and brands, wear my nation's jersey for eleven consecutive years at the Motocross of Nations and win the event. I love challenges, performance, hard work, and having the desire to give my best. I’ve experienced indescribable feelings of joy, I’ve led the MX2 and MXGP world championships, sang the Marseillaise with the public, and lived through strong emotions that have marked me forever. I also have the most unbelievable fans and I humbly thank every single one of them as well as every single person that helped or believed in me for the last fifteen years and more. Sport unites us.

If Gajser crashes and get injured, we would have a 3 way battle between AC222, JPG61 and JS91. That would be war!

My parents actually had the same problem at Saint Jean D'Angely for a local race but the simple solution was to move to another spot, which they did, and that was much better afterwards.😉
