I have their dual axis knee/shin guards. Well built, and survived several flat track crashes. One of them keeps sliding down during rides, but I had the same issue with a Thor force. Either I have one weird leg or I need to adjust the straps.

New thread Cool story about Tixier's bike 10/8/2018 3:35 PM

Tixier got called 2 weeks before the race, so team VHR didn't have time to prepare a new bike or second motor. So he came to the US with a prepared engine and suspension and bolted all of that on a rented bike. We all know his engine died in the first ... more »

Ferrandis mentioned that in his second race he had to babysit his bike because the radiators got stuffed with sand/dirt and it started smoking. Maybe the Kawi riders who had issues didn't heed the warning signs and gave it all.

How some riders just rise to the occasion. For example, Coldenhoff, Paulin... Did Coldenhoff even podium this season? I think his best results was 4th, but I didn't follow all the races. How lucky France has been lately. They didn't dominate but they ... more »

So now, if the US win, do we put a * next to the title?

From RacerX We have heard the French team did reach out to Marvin Musquin, but Marvin, who didn't expect to compete in the event after he was not originally selected to the team, has been on vacation and declined. The MXoN competes six weeks after the ... more »

Marv posted a video (in French) saying that he was motivated, at the top of his game, and the entire team including Aldon, were lined up. You can clearly see he is bummed. So this is strictly a French Federation decision. They knew they were going to ... more »
