Added reply in a thread Everts in '92, and What's Maybe Changed in Supercross... 12/14/2018 1:15 PM

I’ve said this before, Davey put it very well, supercross is NASCAR and MXGP is F1, you can make your choice of what you want to be best at, supercross or motocross. But both should be equally respected and thankfully that finally appears to be happening ... more »

Added reply in a thread NBC Sports Gold for Supercross 12/14/2018 12:48 PM

Not sure why they wouldn’t put both series on a NBC Sports Gold package deal and allow those outside the US to get the supercross as well?! Much dearer for those of us outside the USA now!

Albee in 93 was unbelievable... and said that was the best year of his career. So he never raced Emig at his peak and he only raced the Americans on their own country, not in the world championship. So it’s hard to compare as they always had the advantage. ... more »

That would be a strong team, I think Tomac will want to go too though for some revenge.

Huh? Every country is racing the rest of the world just like America. It’s holland v the world, Italy v the world. Britain against the world. It’s the Motocross of Nations. You’ve missed the point. The title was Europeans v America... America have a ... more »

Imagine if Europe actually had a team and raced against America at a Ryder Cup style event instead of their top riders being split into different countries against team USA.

I asked him about that at Budds Creek back in 2007.... “ I was negotiating with Honda at the end of 93 to go to the US then at the 11th hour when I was about to sign a deal with them, Honda Japan decided they didn’t want to pay me to race a Honda over ... more »

Jett is unbelievably good. Won a couple of EMX2 races this year at 14., that’s no joke. Great technique and great under pressure. Geico got lucky getting him when they hired a Hunter, he should really be in MX2 next season, could be the next Prado. He ... more »

The US Nationals shortened their season, that’s why, MXDN mostly always been end of Sept/ beginning of October, pre 2005. Nice selective dates too! America didn’t win much in the mid to late 90s either, what was the excuse then? And BTW USA winning the ... more »

They are the two main series in the world already, US media just don’t cover it like that. Want to be the best supercross rider? Race in America and win 450 supercross series. Want to be the best motocross rider in the world? Race and win MXGP world ... more »

Added reply in a thread Do you think a Top American will ever go to the GP's? 10/10/2018 10:42 AM

If an American really wants to prove he is the best motocross rider in the world, he will come, as the world championship is the place to prove it. But since supercross seems more important than motocross in the US bubble, I doubt it. MXGP is the toughest ... more »

US riders lack versatility. They are very, very good on perfect tracks with grip but not too much sand or hard pack etc, The world championship is 20 rounds on a wide variety of tracks and you have to be good everywhere, not excellent at just just one ... more »
