I think in an alternate universe where Pastrana stays healthy, 2005-2009 are years where he's right with Stew/Reed/RC.

Added reply in a thread Travis Pastrana vs James Stewart 125cc 2002 11/16/2021 3:10 PM

In 2005 Stewart missed most of the season and was still clearly the fastest guy when he came back. He won three out of the six that he made at the end and crashed away the win in the others. In 2006, even on four-strokes, he was clearly the fastest guy ... more »

Added reply in a thread Sooo…who is the MXGP GOAT? 11/12/2021 10:41 AM

For me, Cairoli is the greatest in terms of longevity, but Herlings is the best anyone has ever been at one time. It's kind of a similar argument people make in baseball: Pedro Martinez in 1999 and 2000 is the best a pitcher has ever been, but he didn't ... more »

Added reply in a thread I made a little video of James Stewart hitting whoops. 10/28/2021 2:17 PM

Amazing how he just pulls right up on RC in the whoops. We all know the whoops weren't RC's best part of the track, but still, that's a five-time champ we're talking about.

AMA rules are pretty much arbitrary, so he's probably good to go.

I don't think they mean "nothing," but they just can't be used as absolute guides. Most of the top guys were also top amateurs, but occasionally things don't work out for the hyped kids, and occasionally unknown guys make huge leaps.

The down-voter probably just wants to read about Bar X and doesn't care about you winning the 50+ class.

My dad loves to tell this story about Barnett at Washougal in the early 80s. Bomber wins both motos by a mile in the 125 class, then afterward he hands his mechanic the bike and decides to just walk back to the pits. Doesn't stop to celebrate or cheer, ... more »

Stew knocking his noggin and doing the wall at Daytona is up there. Henry Hill is always the first thing I think of, though.

Added reply in a thread Jo Shimoda to race a 450 9/24/2021 11:31 AM

I'd expect that if he gets a good start he will win, but if not, I think the 450 and not being used to that series could work against him. I know it's his home country, but he's been in the US for quite a while now, and those guys aren't slouches on ... more »

Added reply in a thread Permanently Retiring Numbers 9/22/2021 6:58 PM

The only league-wide type of number retirement I'm good with is Jackie Robinson's. If there was someone who had done something instrumental to that level in MX then I'd be okay with it, but there isn't.

I can't believe people get paid to make this and can feel good about themselves at the end of the day.

Well when Herlings broke his collarbone he passed Gajser and won the moto in the sand.

Added reply in a thread Sorry Gypsy, but Jett not as talented as James Stewart 9/16/2021 12:16 PM

No, 2002 was Bubba's first season and he won the title. 2003 was his second season and he missed the first four rounds, then won every moto for the rest of the year. 2004 was his third and he went 23-1. Jesus just typing that out I still can't believe ... more »

Added reply in a thread Sorry Gypsy, but Jett not as talented as James Stewart 9/16/2021 11:06 AM

In 2004 James won 23 out of 24 motos in his third season and at the age of 18. Jett will be 18 and it will be his third season, so that's the mark.

Added reply in a thread Sorry Gypsy, but Jett not as talented as James Stewart 9/16/2021 9:41 AM

James was a 16-year-old rookie and won 10 out of 12 races over Langston, Brown, and Reed. Why the hell is this still a conversation? Jett's amazing but come on.

Added reply in a thread Sorry Gypsy, but Jett not as talented as James Stewart 9/15/2021 9:39 PM

In Stew's rookie year, we already wondered whether he could beat Ricky, the GOAT. There's no comparison to that.
