Hell of a ride. It’s just one race but damn did he look good.

Have to wonder how long the KR94 and AC9 bromance lasts if AC9 continues with good rides. Everyone loves you until you’re competition.

It's not like AC is the only one beating Roczen. I think Kenny is probably genuinely happy for his friend, and it's probably motivating to him.

You’re obviously drinking the pre race drama kool-aid.

Great ride by AC9. I’m very impressed and hope it continues!!

I think Ken is smart enough to realize his friendship
with Adam (who happens to be fast as hell) has far more pros than cons...if you can read between those lines...

The bromance will continue because AC9 will be so far ahead of him all season there wont be any tension. The 2020 Ken is the same as 2019 Ken. Good starts, then pull the parachute mid race.

You know how many people that are “competition” with each other are friends? Inside this industry and outside? Millions. Move on and people need to stop trying to push this narrative. Musquin and Dungey were great friends.

Really good ride by Adam! (except the obvious)
Its round 1 but he looked good so far and if he can keep the mistakes to a minimum (fingers crossed) he might do pretty well.

He didn't wash his front wheel at least!

I don't know how he rode that 250, he still looks big on top of the 450

Had a feeling we were going to see something like this. Stoked for AC's ride - made it look comfortable for the most part - and stoked Barcia looked so good. I hope both those trends continue. The more players, the better for us.

He looks fantastic on that 450 though. Remember when he was too small to ride the 250? Seem like forever ago now.

Really happy for him, very good for the sport to have someone with his personality in the mix for the championship.

|

On 250 he was always smiley on the podium and looked like he hardly broke a sweat. Tonight he looked pretty gassed. He for sure had to do work.

Go get it Adam!!! He's going to be up front and having the most fun a lot this year. Impossible for me to not cheer for that kid. Anyone that reminds me of Travis brings the fun.

Are you smart enough to buy a bike that costs less, weighs less, makes more horsepower per cubic centimeter, can be rebuilt for recycled aluminum can money and is giggle inducing? It is hard to believe that the American riding public flunks this test en masse. How stupid are you?

1/5/2020 12:53 AM

Adam's style is very particular, I could be wrong but to me, this is not standard, It's like a new way of riding. Ferrandis has something similar.

You do know 250s & 450s have more or less the same wheelbase & Seat height dimensions?
They more or less share fender & seat fitment sand the same bars??

I don’t get the whol “looks big on a 250” thing..

|

Roczen looked pretty empty at track. Has he overdone offseason to keep up with Adam?
Adam is bigger guy like Herlings and seems to manhandle bike like it was 250.

Damn premix, I started another AC9 thread and didn't even see yours. I edited mine so as to not track over your. But yea, he did look good. And his interaction with the announcers during interviews is refreshing. He's a natural in front of the Mic.

Pretty sure almost crashing, most likely squashing his nuts, only loose one place and then try to keep the freight train behind you takes a bit out of you.

Thought he said in the podium interview that he whacked his noggin and was a bit fuzzy for 20-30 seconds.

Probably knocked every bit of a wind in his lungs out. Very mature ride by AC. Second was a good as a win for him in my opinion.

I was fortunate to be on the floor for A1. AC9 rode the bike in a tall gear and looked very smooth. For me, seeing him and Barcia ride so differently, shows there is more than 1 right way to go fast. If AC can be towards the front all season, I will be a happy fan.

No matter the bike, he reminds me of a modern Mike Bell...

If he doesn't crash out, I think he very well may take the championship. And yes, I came to that conclusion before yesterday. Although, I would like to see Webb repeat.

Stoked to see AC9 podium last night. I’m sure after the MEC race it gave him the confidence & belief he can win on a 450.
The kid is the real deal. Big fan of his as a racer & person.

I am with one foot in the ground and one on the AC wagon. Just want to see two more races. But he looked smooth and fast! Rooting for him.
