"Herlings: You know, everyone is waiting for the Herlings vs Tomac fight, so it isn’t like I can slow down. I have won the World championship, but to beat Tomac is on the wish list and as a country it will be difficult, but I will do my best. I feel like the last thing I want to accomplish. After Assen I took one day off, and I want to try and win at Redbud, that is my goal. I didn’t have time to party, but I will all winter relax and enjoy myself."

Let's hope Tomac has the same mindset for this race.
It's gonna be good cool

According to the weather forecast, there is a storm coming to MXDN! Sounds like rain all weekend!

I liked in the interview on the home page where he was asked about racing in the MXGP class he said '... I don't wanna race Tomac just once, I wanna race him 3 times'..
I'm not saying he was being cocky or arrogant just liked that he wants to get amongst it haha
It's cooking up nicely

why am I reading this? ..... Oh christ, now I'm posting...... shiiiiiiiit!!

I'm not sure what to expect at this point. The USA team hasn't been this strong in a few years. I can't wait to watch some good racing.

I can ser Herlings taking top individual honours, but the USA in the top step without much drama.

vomiting equals disqualification.

I think Tomac knows this is an opportunity to silence some critics too... I do not think Tomac will hit the qualifier as hard as Herlings, but he will come out blazing in the moto's. Herlings is magnificent off the line, let's hope Tomac gets a start...

I also like this team if it does turn out to be muddy.

I get the feeling Tomac is more interested being a solid team member than a checkers or wreckers battle with Herlings' after some comments he made on pulpmx about being so disappointed with himself in Germany and Latvia unfortunately/fortunately.

I know team USA guys are solid in the mud as we’ve seen already, but I’m not too familiar with the MXGP guys. How well are they in the mud if RedBud is a mudder?

I don’t think any of the Euro guys are a slouch in the mud.

Did you watch the race last year?

Mxgp guys can race on shitty surfaces. Great surfaces. Prepped. Not prepped. Doesn’t matter. They see it all and in my opinion have an advantage over 20 foot wide cake
Batter prepped ama nationals.

Bro if it's a mudder I wouldn't count us brits for battling for the top stop of the podium, depending if Tommy's bike stay alive.

Seely said something like this in an interview after mxon last year: "i was watching the practice and i could not believe how fast these dudes were going in the mud".

They can ride mud for sure.. bit so can the 3 americans

As a Tomac fan, and a proud American moto enthusiast, I am fully prepared to see Eli get waxed by Herlings.

No disrespect, but watching Herlings ride this season was something special.

Oh, and I REALLY hope I'm wrong on this.

What I really care about is Team USA winning. Jeff can run off and hide as long as we get the Chamberlain trophy!

No offense to Cole but he is not one of our stellar mud riders. We have the best team we could possibly have for a mudder imho.

Sounds like people are trying to goad Tomac into throwing it all away on a who's faster debate that will never be settles in 2 moto's.

Ride smart win moto's if it's there otherwise take the best you get and win as a team.

10/1/2018 8:22 AM

As much I like to see the Usa team get waxed every mxon, this year I hope they win because is good for the sport and for the fans. I don't imagine a mxon whit no Usa team.

Agreed. And, unlike Tomac, Herlings’ starts have been largely on point this year. Eli isn’t gonna get away with his patented mid-pack-to-moto win against Herlings. Here’s hoping they both start our front!

Tomac will be on the 19 bike right? Hopefully it helps with his starts. Also the video just released of the track shows dirt start, not metal grates, something to keep an eye on for the starts.

There will be a metal start, they just haven't done that yet.

I figured if you’re riding at that level you’d be good in all conditions
