The kid wins his first ever national moto and all he can do in his podium speech is ramble all his sponsors. Didn't say a single thing about his race, just listed a whole bunch of sponsors. I mean what the hell. Who wants to hear that?

This has bothered me for years but this was something else. If everyone does this then don't bother with podium speeches, just put up a board with all the team sponsors so the poor kids doesn't have to stress about forgetting some.

I noticed that this is much more prominent in the American riders. Why is that?

The sponsors pay money to advertise. The sponsors expect ti be mentioned in the podium interview. Is it crass, corporate, and soulless? Absolutely. But it's only a sport from the gate drop to the checkered flag. The rest of the time it is a business.

Yes I understand that but then why doesn't Roczen or Musquin has to ramble sponsors? And in mxgp you never hear anyone do this

He seemed like he was having a lot of fun with his mechanic and others

Moto seems to be the only motorsport where the athletes do it. None of the other motorsports that I watch do the athletes list off sponsors, they thank the team and actually give an interview. Just reminds me of junior presentation at the local club days

the funniest thing about this particular signature is that by the time you realise it doesn't say anything it's to late to stop reading it

Make that $ while you can. It may be his only chance.

Gotta say, I was pumped about this kid making big progress with him being an underdog with an unusual background, but after hearing him on the pulp show last week and this interview, my excitement for him being one of the big dogs went down by about 50%.. I still wish him the best, but it is the WORST when a rider has no personality and is robotic. AC should be a personality coach for these guys, because he's doing it right!

You can make more money in the long run by being marketable and not boring. Ask guys like seven deuce deuce and stankdog who are able to make a living while not getting steller results. And for guys on top like Roczen, it only helps them to have an interesting personality

KId's not exactly Mr. Charisma.

But he is just a kid.

I forgot Enticknap and Stank were rookies pulling down factory salaries and winning moto's. MY BAD. If you notice, the theme seems to be that the longer a rider maintains success the less they reel off sponsors and the more outspoken they become. Big names doing it is one thing. Your first trip to the top of the box? WGAF.

It's not so much the fact that he reeled off sponsors for the interview, it's that there was a severe lack of excitement for just winning your first ever pro race and then proceeding to only reel off sponsors. You would've thought it was a guy who'd already won a hundred races before, no enthusiasm!

They did shove a mic in his face 20 seconds after winning his first moto after the dude beating him had a DNF, Maybe his expectation is to win and an overall is on his mind? Who cares. He has an entire career to create a personality. He's already on par with Dungey so the sky is the limit.

I heard this week that Justin Cooper is a bit boring in interviews. But he it a lot different when he knows people. Probably not use to having a camera on his face.
Give him time, it was his first internationally televised interview. He's a MX racer, not a TV celebrity.

You are actually right about the pit board with sponsors, it is a great idea !

Mechanics, riders, teams, please make the back of the pit board with all the sponsors,

Put it just behind him during the interview so he can only name a few and make a really good speech.

BTW: congrats for the win !

Certain riders on certain teams have clauses in their contract that mandates the mention of sponsors on the podium. There are financial penalty’s for forgetting them, he was probably hyper focused on making sure he got that paycheck lol!

It's on the time travel list, find the first rider who won a race and started listing his sponsors like a goddam puppet instead of having a real actual conversation with the interviewer. Find him, and at least administer a kick in the nuts mid speech.

It's too late now, it's what you're supposed to do, because there was a guy out there before you and he won races and he did that.

Never a lack of complainers in this sport.

Yep, just watched the podium interviews, both marv and kroc thanked "the team", the rest of the riders rambled off a list of sponsors. Seems to be a US thing

Maybe as stated earlier the rider can stand with a board with the sponsors logos, the podium crew promise 5 seconds of static exposure, in the mean time the rider can actually answer the question from the presenter during the 10 second interview..

Half of the time i can't even understand what they are saying as the rush through the sponsor list so fast.
