You must have missed the part where I stated that both Dungey and Webb kicked ass on the 450 for the MXdN while racing 250s prior to racing the 450 class, and that Osbourne has MXGP experience. Savatgy is great in the 250s right now. Between Savatgy and Osbourne, I'd bet Osbourne fairs better on a 450.

And the Canadian nationals are a bit of a step down from the AMA nationals dude.

That team would have an autograph line all the way to the airport and back. 45 min moto's and it would be interesting

Goerke or Alessi would give any of our remaining 450 candidates all they could handle so,why not throw them in there?

Come on Maverick, you're not fooling anyone...

Alessi rode the MXGP in Matterly in 2015 and struggled to score points in a 25 rider gate. I don't think he's a valuable option.

MXLarge: What is your take on riders not wanting to race for their nation? It’s been like that a few years now, and as you mentioned last year in Maggiora, it didn’t seem to matter, because whoever America send, they always lift their game and perform.

Covington: Personally, I think it’s ridiculous. If I was asked it wouldn’t matter if I raced the weekend before or the weekend after, I would be there. To hear guys don’t want to race, it’s disappointing.

MXLarge: When you talk about schedules, they said that Tomac did 29 races last year, but I am guessing you will do around the same this year or not?

Covington: This year I did a lot of pre-season races, also the Dutch championship and some Belgian races, so if you add it all together its around 30 races. I totally understand what Tomac is saying, that he doesn’t have much time off, and its right in the middle of testing for Monster Cup, but for me personally, I am just a really proud American, and I would really be honoured to represent the country.

Hang on a second, I didn't think anyone pussed out back in the 90's?

I thought everyone was wanting to be on the team back then. What is Ryno talking about?

I didn't miss that part at all. Im just not sure why you believe Osbourne would be a good pick to be on a 450? Not sure what Osbourne has done (on a 450) that would give you the impression he's a good choice to be on the big bike? But,since all your looking for is a decent finish Dude,why not?

Osbourne rode a 450 in mxdn for Puerto r I o and I'm pretty sure it was at this same track of ast least I believe it was an English track (Donnington Park, sorry if that's not spelled right my English friends) and he was fast as shit on the big bike. I was likke who tf is that and low and behold it was zacko

This is most likely our team, unless Webb can't make it, then it seems like Peick should get the call. But then again... his wrist isn't exactly healed yet.

I would take Craig over Seely. I cant explain why, it's just a guy feeling that he could have a good finish. Hopefully Webb gets 100% healthy and races it. If we have Webb and Osborne I think we have a shot as long as the MX3 rider can finish top 10 or so.

MX1: JMart . . he put it to Tomac at Daytona
MX2: Osborne
Open: Webb or Barcia

So you don't want our 250 champ on the 250. You want JMart on the 250 who has struggled all year.

You want our 250 champ on a 450 which he has little experience.

I don't know where to go with this.

8/2/2017 9:48 PM

webb would have the 2018 by mxon right? if so his confidence will be reset, and his knee seems same as marvin and marvins healed by now so webb could be healthy and a good pick

MX1 Webb
MX2 Osborne
MX3 Jmart 450, i was impressed at daytona, or if not jmart flip a coin for plessinger/savatgy/cianciarulo on 450 lol its that bad or seely depending on the track lol

Why would you pick Savatgy instead of A Martin?
Even with missing one race A Mart is still like 20 points in front. And Savatgy has proven to struggle under pressure.
Craig is a good pick for his starts. Starts are very important at that event

I know you like to argue with me but man are you special. Let me give you a lesson on MXdN. MX1 or MXGP is a 450 class. MX2 is a 250 class. Open class is whatever you want, normally another 450.
Jmart on a 450 because he was good at Daytona. Zach on a 250 in MX2 because he is killing it. Webb or Barcia in Open.

Where to go with this? Back under the rock.

Since Barcia is most likely out. I'll take Webb.

I do know this, whoever steps up and is willing to carry the flag for the US is going to gain a lot of fans. I would love to see the same team we sent last year go back and get some redemption. They had nothing to hang their heads about last year. They showed a lot of heart and I think it would be great to see them get another shot at it.

8/4/2017 11:29 AM

Friese, Peick, and Barcia. Go in with attitude.

8/4/2017 11:41 AM

Out of the choices listed.. please just say no to Seely. Thanks and carry on.

Plessinger getting surgery on his foot apparently. Someone said in a thread on here that Zacho and Seely on 450 and Covington on 250. Whether that's true or not I don't know but I can see it happening.

Who's the next U.S. rider in line? Seely.
