Funny, i actually thought this week man Desalle would be a great pickup for a US team when their rider is out of the season as a result of SX. If Desalle still enjoys the riding & training and wouldnt demand a mega salary it would be a good way for ... more »

If he keeps his nerves it should be his. But bad start, get nervous, make a mistake and finish 12th in moto 1 with Guadagnini winning could easily happen.

Yeah when i first heard it i was kind of surprised, going back from MXGP to EMX. But then again: It doesnt look like they are spending less money (building an appartment & gym at their workspace) and having a big partner in Yamaha for sure will help ... more »

Nah, he won during the season at Assen and maybe at Laguna. He for sure won at Laguna before.

Crazy thing is he is on his way winning Motogp without winning a race in the class. Ever. That's probably a first in major racing series?

Well Hutten Metaal for example had limited input on their rider selections, they could pick 1 dutch rider but the other ones were up to Yamaha.

Is the German nationality still a thing after they partnered with GasGas? Can't recall but i thought they had allready signed both riders before they became a Gasgas team?

yeah i guess some hard decisions to make. Langefelder was very impressive especially considering his age. Sydow hasnt raced much due to injuries, but has shown he can get top 10's as well (2 in 6 motos)

Yeah Gifting is riding well. Wonder how those one offs translate into full year results. Horgmo had a great wildcard at the Czech republic last year but hasnt dont much this season. I can also remember Bas Vaessen getting 2 top 10s in the dutch gp when ... more »

No idea, but since Hutten is the official Yamaha junior team i would assume Yamaha has some kind of option on Benistant.

Simply looking at the results as of today i think in 10 years time we will see this period as the era of Tim Gajser ''the champion'. If the championship ended today Tim will have 3 MXGP titles and 1 MX2 title in the past 6 years. That is domination in ... more »

Not sure if it will be after this weekend, but i wouldnt be surprised that they will call it quits in the next couple of weeks. The same thing is happening in the Netherlands.

It seems like they they have the plan to simply move him up if he is capable of structurally running in the top 5 to top 3. They did it in 125cc and now again in emx250. Normally i would think it's insane to move up that quickly, but well Kay is getting ... more »

Understand your logic, i would just try to do that scenario with Anstie if i'm Kawasaki. Injuries aside, if he doesnt improve you still have a guy who should get a podium, and if he does improve who knows what he can do. Don't know his salary demands ... more »

Not sure if he can put in similar results as Desalle. The question is do you believe Watson is comparable to Evans or more to the trio of Vlaanderen, Jacobi and Sterry (who managed to score 6 top 10 finishes compared to the 14 Desalle had). As for Desalle, ... more »

Happy to see a new track after 3 at the same location, but i don't really understand the logic of doing a one-off in Spain in these Corona times to be honest. Same with the support classes, WMX does 2 races at Mantova but not a 3rd on the final sunday, ... more »
