Watching him ride is so damn exciting. He brings SO much intensity and pushes so hard. Kind of like watching Plessinger when he’s on heater. His body positioning is so aggressive and he’s always charging.

I flipped on the race halfway through the 250 main and for THE FIRST TIME ALL SEASON, I was glued to the screen watching him. He makes a lot of guys seem like they’re just mailing it in. Photo

Elbows up, chest forward, full on “attack position” over every obstacle, as opposed to the “floating” and over animated body scrubbing most guys do

He’s head and shoulders above his competition. He rides with all of the confidence in the world now. It’s a shame he had to stay down in the 250 class again. Especially now with the depleted 450 class.

No shit he rode head and shoulders above, he was the only one that wasn't on the ground. Seriously, Ferrandis, Davalos both down in the first turn. Then the one guy who could challenge him Forkner was taken out by Zach with a cheeky pass.

Guy is riding the feeder class and is older than the guys who won the big boy class and retired... he should win.

Age does not imply speed. If that were the case, I'd be the champ. And Rodger D would be even faster than I am. Oh wait, he already is. smile

Easy there tiger, I’m a PC Kawi guy above anything else but Zach turned up the heat in the main.

On everyone in the race... I get you’re upset about the IED going off in the start and him not getting collected in the carnage. I was pissed as well. It doesn’t change how well Zach rode in the main.

Lol that is pretty good. I am not taking away from his riding, clearly he is prepared and works hard and rides great. 450's are a snooze fest now with Bam Bam out and it sucks we really won't have a title fight for east coast

He didn't make it look like Cantrell was "mailing it in" in the main!

I’m excited to see what he brings to the 450 class next year. ZACH ATTACK!

Exactly @zycji11. I don't think it's too exciting watching the pre season championship favorite,30 year old 250 class vet with 10+ years of racing experience pass like 6 riders, only one of which even has any main event wins, while the top 2 qualifiers are out of the race. especially with the outstanding racing we have had pretty much all year

What a rider... He's the dignified successor of Jeff Ward.

He should be where he's at with all those years on a 250.

My apologies, I should have clarified that I was referring to his aggressive riding style.

I’m not sure why, I just get excited watching him ride because to me it looks like he’s always pushing. “Style” is exactly that, so not everyone has the same, nor do you need to have any certain kind to be fast. I just like the way he rides.

It brings back memories of all the clinics I attended as an armature. Mike Healy and a young Tyla Rattray yelling at me to keep my elbows up and get my chest forward, or Donnie and Josh Hansen telling me to never sit down and always be in attack position. The kid just has some old school style I guess and I dig it.

Why do people care about a riders age?

no suprise with the 30 yr old VET Osborne on top. East is going to be a SNOOZER until the East X West shootouts when Savatgy can get a stab at Osborne. Zach will be a similar story to Webb on a 450, hence why he's not making the jump.

I see what you're saying, he is be really fun to watch because he's so aggressive on the bike. I get why husky made the choice to run him in the 250sfor Sx I'd just like to see him competing in a class of riders that can compete with him

Oh for sure! When he bumps up to the SX class I hope he stays healthy enough to progress and mix it up with the top guys.

If you’d bother to stop licking windows for 5 minutes you would realize he is only 28..

If I was new to 250 I'd want somebody to race that would prepare me for 450.

Ummm hate to break it to you but it's already been said that Osborne will be on a 450 outdoors.. but yeah he's "not making the jump".

Holy shit some people are ridiculous...
