So when Fernandis did the same to Hill in Paris and it obviously hurt and the other times I have seen mentioned in a career that includes a number of riders he rode through in GPs should all be brushed aside because some other rider did it once. Having ... more »

Some things I took from Anaheim 2. There is some extremely rubbish kit around this season. To be fair Team Yamaha have had awful looking kit for a couple of seasons but this year it has been an explosion of awfulness. Thank god I don,t have that choice for racing any more.No official line on this but Aaron Plesinger just does not look the same rider he was before his accident. Blake Baggott looked fast when does that guy catch a break. No comment on crazy French riders but my thoughts are well known having witnessed many similar things in GP's down the years with Bayle probably being the exception. Forkner still out in the Wildernrss. I know Barcia's not been well but he looked well out of the mix again. The track looked great but was well slick at the end. Why is TV coverage of the AMA Supercross making it almost impossible to watch in Europe. Tomac still has the " Beast Mode " button to press when he so feels. Webb is getting healthy and will be a threat and even looked OK in the whoops where he has struggled in the past. Jett Lawrence looked fast. Craig looked solid until that incident. Roczen was a beast out of the gate and should have been gone. Lots more I noted but it was still a great weekend. Rather than have favorite riders I try and look at what riders do to gain that advantage and how their style and their bikes give them the edge and I thought Anaheim 2 was interesting.

It would be cool to see some 'after race' pics of the bikes, how they suffer from a night of racing. Chains, sprockets, radiators, tires,....

Love the pictures where you can see the riders eyes and how concentrated they are. By far some of my favorite photos! Nice work!

I asked that question as well and instead asked my daughter for a number from 1 to 5 and the number she gave me I voted for.

At last Team Fried bring some unregimented relief away from the cardboard corperate dull mainstream. Its great to see these people enjoying themselves and is their way of taking the pressure and expectation away from the norm. They so remind me of the years I raced Happy, pleased to talk with any fans approachable and human. I reckon Jason Anderson would walk to a meeting to race and is obviously grateful for his opportunity but always has the time for all. Long may they continue.

I would say Tomac was not giving it all as well it was not do or die Tomac. The 250 class was shocking.

Motocross and Supercross is full of fast wannabes and for many is a short career. We have seen them come and seen them go and seen many take themselves to the point of career ending injuries and beyond. A huge respect to those wanting to go that extra 1 % to be the decidinng factor between sucess and failure but for me the sport constantly shoots itself in the foot. The cost of the expensive weight saving part made of thee luxorious metals that sit in the million dollar trucks with every conceivable extra is what every privateer dreams of, in reality most of tomorrows stars are the ones who come through a brand youth proggression and people like Jeff Walker who does a great personal vlog highlighting his struggles to go racing every week perfectly highlight the system. If a Factory team wants to really go racing get rid of these million dollar rigs and put more money into privateers and level the playing field. Get riders from B Group Qualifying out first instead of last. How many times do the bulk of qualifiers come from A Groups when the track is a lot less challenging. You could go on but I think I made a few valid points but I still love the racing but my point is the industry could help privateers more.

I was involved stateside and GPs and UK MX for 35 years and have been to every track you can think of like some obscure Honda place in Brazil which was an eye opener for what was to come called Bello Horizonte. Assen I was at last week for the BSB round in Glorious Sunshine and the reason I am not at the Nations is I have been to a MXGP at Assen and it was probably the worst MX GP track I have seen but of the 33 teams I reckononly 7 of the teams have a fully recognisable team. Any way enjoy the show we can not even get to watch it on telly here in the UK.

What I take from those results is 90% of the riders nobody has ever heard of them.
