Said in interview with Matthes after the race yesterday. Sadly the powers that be probably won't make it happen

Stamp it!

Honestly I was thinking that yesterday. Cooper isn't looking that great, and Bam rides Red Bud well and would probably be the best candidate to drop down. Eli, Sexton, Barcia on a 250 would be my pick, we just don't have any good consistent 250 riders right now.

Love it!

But Barcia is such a meany on the track....we can't have him represent the USA...

|

I may not be an insider but I have loved this sport since the 70's. 2-smokers forever!

Barcia , Anderson , Craig , Sexton or Tomac ….. put any one of them that is willing on a 250 and any of the others on 450s and they are the favourites to win . 👍

Eli, Chase and either Barcia or Craig on the 250 would be my choice. I feel like Craig might be an easier choice since he was on a 250 more recently. But either would be awesome.

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: Barcia is a legend. Go Bam Bam.

We should probably have a First American award for the Nationals.

The older I get, the faster I was.

It’s at Red Bud, put Masterpool on a factory bike for the event

Craig is a helluva rider but I think Barcia would be an animal on a 250 at this point. He's great at Red Bud and always wants to do the nations race so I say give him the job!

My vote is dependent on whether Herlings is racing or not.

If Herlings is there I want Eli and Chase on 450s to race him, with Bam Bam or Craig on a 250.

If Herlings is out, Eli would have nothing to prove. I'd love to see him on a Star 250, with Chase and Anderson on 450s.

You gotta admit, if Bam had a good day on a 250f and we won, that would be stuff of legend

|

Alright Lunger, Let's Do It

7/3/2022 8:27 AM

I could see bam bam on a 250f. It would light a fire under his ass and he would be throwing that bike all over the track. I vote for him

Tomac on a 250 could be the worst idea anyone has come up with

The difference is Barcia was a multi time champ on a 250 and arguably rode it better than he rides a 450, Craig was never a standout outdoors on a 250.

I'm honestly not sure if that was sarcasm or not

Ya I don't know what people are remembering when they say to put Craig on a 250. He got smoked outdoors. We aren't taking sx here

Why not Tomac, Sexton, Anderson. Clearly the best team for USA to me

They are clearly our three fastest guys, but Anderson's inconsistency is starting to worry me a bit. Dare I say it, but has Dungey entered the conversation yet?

Who's gonna ride the 250 on that team? Sexton was never that great on a 250 outdoors, Tomac doesn't handle change very well, and Factory Kawi doesn't have an in house 250 program. Would there be any conflict with him riding a PC bike?

Sorry but his ship has sailed. Barcia would not be a good choice. I fell like cooper will be the chosen one but Hampshire rode well yesterday as well.

Big fan of the choice if that happens -

For any golfers out there, Barcia to me is a lot like Patrick Reed. Can’t stand the dude 51 weekends out of the year, but there’s no one I’d rather have to show up and represent the USA. Guy is an absolute bull dog that will fight for every single position

I posted it in another thread after high point, Tomac and Dungey on 450 with Sexton on a 250 would be my choice. Our team needs consistency, there aren't three more reliable guys right now.

This^^^^ The goal is to win. Not to ride around and make sure we don’t hurt any feelings.

The question is…. Can Gas Gas build that to 250 to handle the hell Barcia will put it through?

Any chance Joe has dual citizenship?

Lol … gotta admit , you bring up a good point .

Tomac and Sexton on 450s put Dungey on a 250, he’ll have time to get used to it and it’s not like he’s worried about it getting in the way of supercross testing!

|

The fact that there are over a dozen guys on factory 250's and none of them is an instant choice , shows where the current 250 guys are at.

The only exercise i get these days, is shaking my head in disbelief

Can any of the older dudes here enlighten us on what the deal with Hannah dropping down to 125 for the 87 Unadilla MXDN was? Was there no one in the 125 class capable? Did he pull rank because he wanted to do it? Always been curious on that one.
