Lets be a bit serious. I would not be surprised to hear that Plessinger got hurt from the crash yesterday because he was so incredibly far off the pace. I just can't see how he would be so far off without an injury.

It's called racing, on the day anything can happen.

Excuses and ifs or buts do not count.

Look forward to next year.

That’s exactly what I’m thinking. I would assume he got hurt (maybe a wrist injury with taking that hard of a hit?) in the qualifying race crash and was suffering through it on Sunday.

Alternatively, can we give Martin Barr some credit for beating Aaron Plessinger?

No no no no no No, that's being fair, no room for that. No excuses in that.

He sounds like a guy that is baffled of what happend. On the other hand he sounds like he doesn't care much about it.. which is not the case I think.

He said in the cast he wasn't feeling great... Yamaha exec in THOR tower by us was saying that while he had no specific injury, he was not 100% after that crash. No excuse, but that wasn't his best...

I think 100% of the riders out there had issues with vision.

There were so many riders out there with no goggles on. No excuse

I mean his actual eye was messed up. Not “no goggles”.

I think he rung his bell. He was a different rider after the crash. You could see it.

Martin Barr ended up 4th of the EMX250 this year whith these results :

10-1-9-7-5-7-4-4-7-4-20-10-6-12-12-6-8-8-14-21-14-8

He is a good rider, the EMX250 class is deep and he has been consistent. Look at Brian Moreau at Imola last week, he was able to ride top 5 in MX2 for almost half the race, and he finished in front of Barr 8 out 22 races in the european class...

Our Barty is some lad now. 14th year in a row has had some great mxdn rides over the years and not 1st time he has beaten an american rider at the event

Don't really want to get into mudslingling about Aaron, he may well have been injured after the ball breaking crash.

However, as many have said much credit to Barr, at times he was even higher up than his finish result and goes to show what a great ride he had. Well done that Irishman!

Also goes to show how good some of those EMX250 guys are- okay we got a few older guys in there but also a stack of young whippers, probably the next lot of Prado's!

Credit to Prado also- absoultely fantastic on that 250. Just a kid really who rides like an absolute beast!

Pity we didn't get to see Irwin this year, he must have been gutted to get mangled the week before.

Yes for sure- poor old Graeme has been in the battles alot lately- that back shoulder injury/ rip up was absolutely brutal before also. Crazy to see he rode with that and got a 4th I think on the day! Most people would have been in hospital.

Big well done to Team Ireland and credit anyway!

Problem with Plessinger is that he talked the talk but didn't walk the walk. Saturday he was running off his pace. He wanted to give a lesson and got burnt. What amaze me is that professionals, that should know better than the rest of the world, are so naive. And nobody close told him to think it over.
Now for the rest of the world is Mr. Plessinger, The Clown.

Sure when you are to chicken shit to state which team you support. It’s a easy bet to take the whole field against one team.

But in the end USA still has more titles than your team.

Well, now that I've had my fun at our teams expense (deserved guys, sorry) here's the reality. We had the two fastest guys in two classes on a dry track. I have zero doubt about that. IF the track was dry I think we win going away. Guys who get smoked during the nationals by AP just worked him over like a novice. They didn't all the sudden become better over a couple of weeks. The truth of the matter is as follows (don't argue with me, it's facts and you know it)

1. Herlings was going to win on any track. He's the best in the world. He had Tomac afraid as soon as he showed up. Tomac is EASILY fast enough to take second or third to Herlings and AC, BUT

2. The GP riders are SO much stronger mentally than the AMA guys that its like men against boys out there. AP can ruin Dylan all year but not get a sniff of him all weekend during the des Nations because the mental strength is light years apart.

3. All three riders even on the muddy track were capable of taking the overall. They raced like boys and the men won. The idea that all the sudden the AMA guys can't beat guys they normally beat let alone guys like Martin Barr is hilarious. I get the narrative is GP good and AMA bad, but I think the speed is actually very close on both sides. The difference is and has been that the GP guys show up. It's like another weekend to them and they don't fall apart. Our guys for the last several years are too weak mentally to beat them.

Are you smart enough to buy a bike that costs less, weighs less, makes more horsepower per cubic centimeter, can be rebuilt for recycled aluminum can money and is giggle inducing? It is hard to believe that the American riding public flunks this test en masse. How stupid are you?

10/8/2018 2:59 PM

I guess we should conclude that Glen Coldenhoff is now the fastest rider in the words according to some dummies on here
