And now we wait. 25 days and counting.

Marvin going to be prepared and hungry. Time for him to get it done.

Webb is starting to peak and is full if confidence.

Tomac fancies # 4.

Adam C - he has the tools but needs to keep it on two wheels.

Roczen...no idea. If he is 100% healthy he will be a title contender.

I really cant see anyone else as a title threat...or have i missed someone?

Sexton - HRC Honda...Will he podium?

Tomac might have his hands full with Webb. But if he wants to win title #4 I think he will be wise to focus on consistency. Marv I think will come on later as he gets his legs underneath him.

Roczen is a big question mark. Sadly I have a feeling he's going to be a 5-10th place rider the way he drops anchor. If you look back he has a history of dropping off as the season goes on, even pre-injury.

I hope Roczen gets well as he definitely has the skill set to fight for championship.

Who Will Be destroyed by the Florida heat in the second round this year?

|

I really hope Osborne carries his current form through to the outdoors. We need more riders in the hunt to make it interesting.

The 250 class is stacked with great riders and It's gonna be a close battle for the title.

Consistancy is going to win it.

That heat is brutal...just standing on the side of the track one sweats his nuts off.

Hope that SX win gives Osborne some confidence going into outdoors. He seems like such a good dude who deserves all the success that comes his way.

250’s will be stacked!! The People vs Austin Forkner will make for great viewing.

Tomac for another outdoor title. He is only getting better.
Bad starts are easier to make up over 30 mins v 20 mins.

You think Forkner will be ready to go in 25 days after last night?

Fingers crossed for the young lad. If not round 1 then his injection at some point in the series will be great!!

I just don't see anyone hanging with Eli.

Kenny might have the speed, but definitely not the consistent fitness.

Cooper might have the fitness, but almost definitely not the consistent speed.

Marv likely doesn't have either and the rest aren't on that level.

They wanna hope Eli starts slow after the stress of a new baby and the SX title, but given the 3–4 weeks wait, I doubt it.

Will be glad to see JS17 and Marv back. Hopefully Zacko can give Eli a run outdoors

In 250, who to contest Dylan Ferrandis ? (big title fav IMO, among others, the last two years he was the undisputed fastest, strongest, during both second half Outdoors seasons)
No more Sexton.
Forkner certainly not from the start of the season.
J Martin, McElrath, Cooper... Of course.
The Lawrence Bros ? Yeah I believe it (but to be titles contenders, they will have to demonstrate consistency... a true question mark).
Marchbanks maybe, and how fast his chest recovering ?
A. Martin, Hampshire, Nichols, P.Brown, Shimoda, Mosiman, Hartranft, McAdoo, etc... To win Outdoors races ahead Dylan, Law-Bro., Cooper, J.Martin, McElrath or Forkner (when he come back at his proper level) ? I could be wrong with one of them but overall, no.

Kenny’s health won’t hold up. Cooper may get a win or two but he seems better suited to SX. Marvin is rested and should have something to prove. Osborne could be a surprise. The #1 is still the one with the Outright speed and fitness. Kenny is the only one who could hang or beat him every week, but again, health issues.

|

6/22/2020 3:20 AM

Is Max Anstie going to be ready to go ?

|

6/22/2020 3:24 AM

I'm not ready yet to count out Baggett. He has some pretty bad races in SLC, but maybe outdoors is a different story. There are not many that can beat anyone in the world on a good day. Baggett is definitely one of them.

|

6/22/2020 3:31 AM

Is Marvin even riding yet? His rehab appears to be going pretty slowly, how long has he been off the bike?

He started to ride few days ago.

He can beat anyone on his day, but his last day outdoors was Colorado 2017 or 18 right?

And in between that day and all the other mediocre ones are a lot of horrible days.

Round 2 will be a disaster with the heat.

|

6/22/2020 4:02 AM

I’d add Jason Anderson and Osborne as front runners outdoors

RC has 10 straight outdoor titles so Tomac has to win 6 more straight if he wants to beat that record lol

Yeah I know. I just keep hoping he gets it all together somehow one day.
I'll never forget how he made some of the top 250 riders in the world look like amateurs in 2012

Is Sexton racing 450 outdoors this year?

Where did you see that? According to his insta,he was still rehabbing on the 14th. Hoping he comes in at 100%.

Last evening on french tv, for a vlog interview (btw, Musquin was in KTM workshop with few 25 bikes).

Webb had one overall last year at a mud race. Outside that he scored 4th (4 times) and 5th and 6th (twice each) before getting injured at unadilla. Who knows, maybe outdoors will look better for him this year. But I see Osborne finishing in front of Webb outdoors.
