Not going to dive into their speculation, because that's a whole Pandora's Box there. But I will say that even insiders are known to talk out their asses from time to time. In all industries.

In the latest Swapmoto "How Was Your Weekend" segment Dean explains that he actually thought Kenny was Ferrandis, who had fallen and would have been behind him. I believe Dean on this. He looked pretty ragged over the whole thing, and sounded very sincere. ... more »

If Deano knew he had a stiff penalty coming, perhaps he would've checked his ego and paid more attention to his surroundings. It takes major fitness and stamina to charge full speed throughout a main event. Many professionally trained factory guys fade ... more »

Interesting! My chick's takeaways: Kenny is a hottie and that Wilson guy should be black flagged; I miss Ralph talking about Marvin's cats and Mr. Fun Fact (Michael Mosiman); Will's botox and fillers are on point and she has a great doctor.

I like Dean Wilson! I also think he majorly screwed up, and that KR94 fans have every right to be pissed off.

And where's that money coming from? Sponsorship and funding is tight enough even in the factory pro ranks, especially lately.

Reply to Should Lappers be black flagged? 1/24/2021 3:12 PM

All this, because Deano blatantly ignored the blue flags and held up Ken Roczen? And Chad Reed did it to Ryan Dungey, like, 4 years ago? Because these are literally the ONLY high profile lapping incidents I can think of. How about riders pay attention ... more »

But if we weren't emotional, would we really be "entertained"? If we didn't GAF about the sport or the riders, we wouldn't watch it, let alone talk shit on a motocross forum. You know?

I guess some people feel Pro Circuit and Star crap out magical whiz kids who've been training since preschool, and everyone else should just GTFO the track. That's one big thing I miss about Jim Holley on RDL, he would even pay attention to the B guys,

That video is everything And Vital must be WAY ahead of the curve...the 2018 Marv/Eli Foxborough incident triggered some of the most EPIC COVID rage I've ever seen on the internet. ... more »

I know it's early, but Eli is starting to give me those "will he or won't he?" Baggett vibes.

Especially when the leaders lap into the top 5!

Reply to Should Lappers be black flagged? 1/24/2021 11:55 AM

Yeah, that would be the dumbest shit ever. You would literally have to reinvent the points paying system and everything. You're a top guy who tumbles and starts a lap down? Tough shit, no points for you! Womp womp.

Reply to Was Jett’s move stupid or a racing incident? 1/24/2021 11:24 AM

Jett gets more of a pass because he is a literal child, and he raced like one last night. It was an intentional, dirty move. He even honestly fessed up to it on the podium! Forkner is WAY more seasoned than Jett - it's what, his FIFTH pro season out ... more »

Reply to Should Lappers be black flagged? 1/24/2021 11:05 AM

Shit happens. Factory riders will have bad nights - be it from a fall, bike issues, or simply lacking speed - and be lappers. Lappers will always exist. That's not the issue. The issue is knowing to GTFO the way when you're a lap down and the leaders ... more »

Just think of it as his nice little way of sparing your thread from the Dumbgeon.

Reply to Should Lappers be black flagged? 1/24/2021 10:06 AM

Quite a coincidence that the most notorious, horrible lapping incidents involve seasoned, talented veteran riders hogging up main racing lines, NOT bumbling clueless privateers. Any rider smart enough to seriously hold up Dungey/Roczen knows EXACTLY ... more »

We must remember that Bam Bam was pulling top 10s on a STOCK BLUE PIG for a hot minute. So that Gas Gas must feel like straddling a literal rocket.

Reply to Webb 1/24/2021 9:20 AM

He and Ferrandis share that attribute. They're gritty fighters, pure and simple. They line up to win races, not popularity contests.

Reply to Webb 1/24/2021 9:13 AM

Well, considering Joey Savagty got fuck all for literally "after you, madam"-ing Eli Tomac into a million bucks, I'd say whatever less than that is.
