I still think Star Racing will have a rider on the team. The whole 'moving' thing is not going to have them pass up the honor (and publicity) of sending a rider.

Still hoping for a shocker and Tomac finds a way to go. Tomac and RJ plus either Plessinger or Barcia or Sexton. Remember, Plessinger is the official 'USA mascot' so he needs to be there. Yes, I know about the Star racing move to FL.

I would guess that if you knew him you would find that Eli is one of the most patriotic people in the country. Just because he decided not to ride a couple of MXON events does not change that one bit.

Kailub should have ridden the 450. He would have gotten better results.

Did Cannondale have anyone like RC on their team that knew motocross well? I don't remember.

I agree with you 100%. Eli is truly amazing to watch. The pass he finally made on Chase was incredible and he almost did the same pass on DF. It will be boring when he is gone.

Added reply in a thread Washougal National - Main Races Bench Racing 7/25/2021 10:24 AM

Agree that Eli would have passed anyone else. DF is just in crazy good shape and solid. Took too long getting Chase. Tomac still has the ability to show (at times) incredible speed that no one else can match. He can't start 7-10th and expect to beat ... more »

I think Kailub's crash and injury were too much to overcome. Looking back he should have just skipped this season and tried to prep for 2022. But KTM probably would not have granted that option. Whatever Roger told him seemed to create massive self-doubt ... more »

I get it on both comments that Tomac is in good shape...just not as good as the old Tomac in my view. Clearly, what happened at Spring Creek was he got tired at the end of the crazy 1st moto charge and then had little left for moto 2. He even said after ... more »

Chicken Farm was a great sand track. Probably a housing development now.

I bet Tomac is saying to himself right now, "Gosh, I can go faster than DF but I got tired. He must be working harder than me...right."

Not writing off Kenny at all but I don't think he has the speed and desire that DF does right now.

Added reply in a thread Let's Be Honest, The only one that can stop the Frenchie Freight Train is, ET3. 7/18/2021 7:40 PM

Totally agree with this. DF wants it more than the rest. And Tomac proved he is not in shape like the Tomac of old. As Hannah always said, you win the race by what you do on Tuesday...not race day.

To me, we are talking about what bike was the greatest based on 'that point' in time. You can't judge the longevity of a bike from 2006 to one from 1974 or 1981 or 1987. The evolution of the motocross bike was moving exponentially faster in the '70s ... more »

1) How many of you really think this is going to last with Barcia? We have seen this before. He goes on short streaks. 2) Tomac is the only one with the speed to beat DF but apparently, Eli is not in good enough shape at the moment to pull that off every ... more »

Good for Barcia! He earned that one! Interesting seeing that Tomac wore himself out in moto one. I sure thought he was going to win that moto. But it was like Eli hit a wall when he caught DF and JB. Didn't have much left in the tank for moto two. JMart ... more »

I just think his personality states he is in this for more than just the paycheck. He is a very good 450 rider and will do well.

Nice Picture! Thanks. The '87 still had the conventional forks.

I think there is some 450 team that will sign him....and he should take it no matter what it is... except NOT on the Suzuki!
