Being a biased Brit I gotta say how cool it's been to see Ben Watson step up in MX2 this season. He's the fastest kid to come out of UK in years and being well grounded and level-headed he's got a bright future.

I believe he's got another year on his 2 year contract with Kemea Yamaha and at 21 he's got a couple more years before he moves up to the 450s which I reckon he'll be a natural on with his height and riding style.

He finished a solid 4th in MX2 world championship and was 4th in his class at Red Bud.

Well done Ben.

Great kid. Know him for a long time and always thought he was capable of what he has shown this year with the right equipment. Was super proud of how he rode at Red Bud

Watching Ben charge through the whoops/rollers before the leap was pretty cool as I felt he was one of the fastest through that section.

Watson is the real deal. I think next year he can give to Prado something to deal with. Anyway. He beat Barca in his home soilsmile

Am going go with it being this shot. Watson has rode great last year and all this year, hopefully he can get a few more podiums rather than 4th and 5th all year.

The level of expectation is high for 2019, based on this season, but he is ready for it i think. Will be a threat all year.

The above may be fact or fiction, I may be serious, I may be jesting. I am not sure, you have no chance.

What's the point of this? laughing watch the video before posting next time. He took the inside and got bogged down in case you missed it.

Both photo's were probably not taken at the exact same millisecond. He probably shifted back / sideways on the bike.

Top photo Guyb is standing past the lip of the jump more toward the middle, bottom photo is taken from before the lip of the jump, can't be the same. Benny just has consistent form I would say.

The video validates my point.

Do you suffer from dyslexia?
