Didn't they announce at Unadilla that JMart would be 250 full time next year?

Barcia was up for a spot at Red Bull KTM and word on the street is Decoster and Harrison wanted him, but Red Bull said no.

Bogle....I wouldn't bet on the JGR thing yet.

Davalos to Yamaha

What can be asserted without evidence can also be dismissed without evidence.

Millsaps to Yamaha "could" make sense (although he is accident prone...). On the flipside don't be surprised to see Bogle at Yamaha also. I know Reed has recently tested a KTM, however, my money is still on him going to JGR.

I guess another question is, is Peick re-signed with JGR for 2018? if not we "may" see Reed and Bogle at JGR together. Peick could very well end up at the Rocky Mountain team or Motoconcepts.

Pure speculation (part of it anyways)

Is that just a conflict of interest you think ? Or maybe something from the past ?

I would think it's Red Bull not wanting to be associated with him? He definitely doesn't have the best rep.

Red Bull are not daft.
Says a lot about the current state of affairs , a guy getting the flick from a 2nd string team , in the frame for a ride on the best team in the series.

Regardless of the team, I would take Malcom over Barcia, I don't see either producing a championship, might as well get somebody the fans like.

8/16/2017 1:17 PM

I am surprised that JMart will be on a 250 for next year, I thought his contract has him on a Factory 450 under Geico tent, and I wonder since Bogle isnt a done deal at JGR that he might be a chance at MCR?

Current rides: 2020 CRF450RWE and 2019 TC300

I could be wrong, but i vaguely remember Barcia being a "Monster athlete", not just part of the Monster sponsorship of JGR. So maybe his contract with Monster is what is standing in the way of the KTM ride.

If remember right, when Monster came on as a JGR sponsor Barcia and Phil were directly sponsored by them, and Pieck was sponsored through the team deal (he only had the claw on his jersey not a monster helmet).

Rock star Husky should keep Davalos. WIth the attrition rate being over 50%, a team can always use another rider.

See the Stewart Monster/RedBull issue.

Same thing.

I get that but I kind of feel like that's a little different, James was a RedBull guy for a long long time and Barcia's only been a Monster guy for what 3 or 4 years? I honestly didn't think that would stand in the way considering Deano was sponsored by Monster for as long if not longer and he rode for the RedBull KTM last year. They also signed Dungey who was with Rockstar for awhile.

Not trying to argue just kind of surprised that would play a factor.

Barcia has a better resume, races both SX and Mx.

Half the field is banging, dating or married to a monster girl.

JG, DM18, Bowers, Both Hill brothers the list goes on.

Why would you take someone who only races half the year....and still shows up out of shape?

Tomac and/or Anderson for 2020.....
