great movie, BUT based on all the threads and the hype over Roczen, how many SX does Eli win in 2018?? 9 I think last year. Does he come out swinging and kill em all? Does he have arm pump and finish 12th? What does 2018 have in store? unsure unsure

|

I’m gonna say 7-9 wins, and nothing outside of the top 10.

If I'm not mistaken, his only finish outside the top ten in SX last year was due to a mechanical that caused him to crash and have to have the front brake line cut. So I wouldn't say it's impossible.. but unlikely.

If Roczen is fast from A1, Eli is toast. If Marvin is fast from A1 Eli is toast. Eli's mental fitness has been his Achilles heel. He let Dungey win the SX championship last year because his mental toughness wasn't up for the challenge. I don't see how he fixes that in a few months. Yeah he won the MX championship last year but it was a severely depleted field and Baggett took it to him early in the season until his injury at Red Bud.

Eli is a great natural talent, his weakness is between his ears and that is the hardest one to fix and I think Roczen can get to him pretty early if he is fast from A1, Eli doesn't do well when Kenny is fast.

I'm going to have to kindly disagree. While there is no denying there have been times when he hasn't performed while the pressure was on there has also been a few times when he has. For example Salt Lake City, he was tied for the lead and entered the first turn last and came back to win. To me there would be a decent amount of pressure to perform in that situation and he definitely did.

Another example is the second moto at Budds this year. After the first moto I honestly wasn't sure if he could pull off the championship and he went out pulled out a pretty clutch win in the second moto. Baggett really only took it to him once this year, on the track that nearly ended Eli's career just two years prior. In most motos after that (up until the second Red Bud moto) Eli started behind Blake and beat him many times.

I'm not trying to say he's rock solid when it comes to handling the pressure because there's no denying that he isn't but lets not just ignore situations where he handled it pretty well.

I think that Tomac is going to win the title, and actually wrap it up 1-2 rounds early. I predict at least 10 wins.

Marvin finished the series 61 points behind Eli in 2017. I think that they will BOTH be better than last year, so the points gap at the end of the season will be roughly the same as last year.

Baggett took it to Eli 1 moto. Then he talked shit like he was going to win the title. That win was weeks before he got hurt. Where do you guys come up with this shit? Marvin can't ride whoops he jumps through them. Last I checked Eli kicked Marves ass in SX this year. As for Ken he barley beat RD at the second SX race this year. You guys act like he is miles ahead of everyone else! Eli is going to win 10 plus wins this year. No I don't think Ken will win A1.

You said it perfect and you guys make it sound like marvin is horrible through the whoops I mean he is the slowest of the 3 but that is just one part of the track and he's the best at scrubbing of the 3 and that helps makes up for the whoops a little not saying he's going to win the championship I pick roczen but I think he could surprise a lot of people

Eli showed huge mental strength in '17. he had a very big points gap to make up after the break problems and a couple so so finishes. he got it all together and klicked of wins seemingly easy (which it obviously wasn't). when did you see the last time that the current champ was literally hunted down on points like this? having said that, it wouldn't surprise me to see kenny win a1 but so far, kenny made the bigger mistakes in sx which have cost him big time. eli seemed to have found where and when to push and when to take a 3rd or 4th. should be a good season!

I don't think I have seen it anywhere so I will post it.

Eli needs good starts or he can forget it, this has always been his struggle indoors on a big bike.

Now if he clicks off some wins and wins by a good bit he will have Marv mentally beat. Right now in my opinion, Marv is more of a threat than kenny simply because we don't know how Kenny will be able to race. He may do great, or he may struggle early on.

And for those that have said Eli is mental, take a look at kenny too. He is just as mental, they all are once 1 or 2 guys starts winning.

I’m a Tomac guy but I think the butt kicking he got from Herlings and The off season stuff Marv pulled off has Tomac guessing where he is!

Thank you. I like how people only reference Roczen whupping the field by 20sec the first race then conveniently gloss over Dungey hounding him the 2nd race. He's not next level to the field like an RC or JS. At least he wasn't when he got hurt and I don't see him be I g faster post injury

That's only betting on a win, right?
I'd put Webb a little higher up. And I'd put Tomac in front of Musquin
But it's really hard to tell. Yours seems pretty good to me

Marvin can blitz whoops. French riders like to jump them when they get very bad but he absolutely can blitz, and does. I dont get where the idea that he only jumps through whoops comes from but its not true.
