Only guy I saw that could run with or beat RC on an 80 and would consistently run faster lap times than the pro class on his 80.

I think Burkhart turned out to be a 'factory star' for SM...just not MX. he's been pretty succesful.

Steve never made the Honda "A" team, in the states, but did go on to win a couple of Japanese National championships.

Steve Ryhan had support rides with Husky and Maico but never got to the big time.
David Gerhig tested for MXA and was fast but never did Nationals to my knowledge.
Gary Ogden who taught at the Suzuki School of Motocross did well at the Nationals but had the worse luck also.
