To be on the des nations team IMO. That last moto, last lap pass on Kenny tells me that was the only thing on his mind. He has the experience, he has the speed back again, and you know he is going to go full Bam Bam in that event. Have to see how this last 250 moto goes, but its gotta be ET, AP, and Barcia after today

I totally agree, he is gunning for 1st Every Race!

Tomac
Barcia
Plessinger

Obvious team is obvious, but so many think otherwise. Barcia is one bad man, this guy wants it.

vomiting equals disqualification.

Barcia has earned that MX3 ride for sure. Good for him and can hardly wait to see Herlings and Tomac and MM25 battle.

His moto 1 charge from dead last to 4th was pretty damn impressive too...

Positively, absolutely 110% obsessed with anything MOTO.

When he's going full Barcia, it's pure outdoors beauty. God, that kid is fun to watch.

Yes he earned it. Top finishing American rider today.

I’m so glad he is back! Saw him live on a 250 at a SX, he was incredible.

The leap to a 450 is really quite a big one. Everyone is surprised when it doesn’t work out for a top 250 guy, but should be more surprised when it does. Odds aren’t great. Sweet downhill scrub pass, and his pass on Roczen was something like Roczen would do. Some sweet racecraft.

No doubt!!

I don’t want to see “full bam bam”. That’s childish and petulant. Give me this years version thank you

|

It’s so nice to see bam bam get his speed back again. It’s amazing how far it sets you back when you get injured. Takes a while to get back to who you were.

Hell yes. Kenny was riding damn good and Barcia got around him on the last lap just how he explained on the podium, he wanted it and wanted to prove he should be there for MXdN.

Barcia has earned my respect... Tougher than a 2 dollar steak.

His pass on Kenny was absolutely beautiful.

So, you see the “old-school”, too?

Nobody ever told me, I found out for myself. You've got to believe in foolish miracles. It's not how you play the game, it's if you win or lose. You can choose. Don't confuse. Win or lose. It's up to you!

Bracia is definitely hungry again and hes the locked in 3rd place guy this year. Where the hellll is Baggett? A bad mx season then going into sx which isnt his strong suit is not gonna be a good look. Howabout Bogle also going from first to last every time hes on the track lol. That caaaant be what he wanted and it sux to see cuz hes gonna be a free agent. He has to be pisssssed.

Barcia showed a lot of heart today, very impressive.

Plessinger was awesome too but if the team USA wants to put Barcia on AP’s bike and let Anderson go too, would be a great team

Only 4 more motos until Unadilla and the team announcement. Barcia should be making travel plans back to Red Bud!

Excellent ride and definitely deserves a spot. He does well in those events too so should be a no brainer.

I don't have to be as smart as you hope to be some day anymore. wink

7/7/2018 6:08 PM

Damn straight! Barcia baby! The kid wants to represent. His ride today was confirmation of what I wanted all along. Tomac, Barcia, Plessy. = solid!

|

7/7/2018 6:10 PM

Also of note, he's been a very good starter this year (today being an exception). So normally he's going to start up near the front and today proved that even if he doesn't he has the fight to get back up front before the moto is over. Showed a lot of heart and that's what MXoN is all about.

Starts are going to be very important in a weirdly stacked des Nations of some very fast guys and some guys that wouldn’t qualify for MXGP or AMA MX.

so you guys are still sold on Et3 racing for the team? that dnf-9 looked great today and he didnt give the team a chance last year.. id say fuck it and send barcia, anderson, and clearly plessinger after the ride today

|

7/7/2018 7:07 PM

I’ve been saying Barcia for a while. He’s been good at every MXoN he’s ridden, and he has that chip on his shoulder that really helps him rise up against unknown competitors.

The guy I was not sold on was Plessinger. But after today I’m in. If he rides like that in October he’d be the best MX2 by a mile. Plus if it rains.....

Old MXer turned Superfan.

7/7/2018 7:15 PM

I definitely hope he gets put on the team this year. He looked great today!

|

7/7/2018 7:23 PM

It's really a no brainer if he stays healthy.

Just stop. He the fastest National rider by a mile. He's had a bad race. Had bike problems which gave him a bad gate pick and then a bad start. Not counting the dnf he's had one bad moto out of 14?
