Nice try. But you'll need more, bigger, juicier bait than that to catch anything around here.

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

I just watched that, you could see he just wanted to let loose, bit of a shame he brought up about no MEC and A1, poor form from eli

I agree with this. I think it is good to see he is motivated, but he really should have left the MEC and SX out of it. Who knows though, maybe being put on the spot it is not always so easy to measure ones words and attitudes.

I do not blame him for pushing back though. With some of the current attitudes out there about them and their performance, and the state of American MX, well raises my own ire somewhat. It must be amplified for him.

I hope he stays healthy and hungry for next year in the Netherlands, I’m planning on being there.

Who cares.. it’s time for supercross ??

10/13/2018 4:25 AM

Yeah bad form to bring up MEC and supercross as an excuse. He didn't race 20 GPs, flying across the globe + 2 or 3 national championships that these guys do. People here seems to think the US guys race so much more each season when in reality it's not a lot more, if any. Think about how early the Italian championship starts and most of the top guys are running that, just as an example.

Then you're not following the GP series very closely. Herlings injured himself there 2017, making his start to the season very suboptimal and Gajser broke his jaw this year, ruining his start of the season.

FIM want's you to think that euros are faster to make MXGP superior series and take interest away from AMA. More money for them and they probably invested little fortune for that Red Bud sand. While I think Herlings is an animal you can just watch Italy MXoN again, Anderson dominated the field, I mean dominated, Anderson. He isn't a guy who dominated anything at all in the US. But it wasn't another sand track there.

Like I told many times before. Every regular GP rider have to race at least 48 motos in the season. it's includes their national series (oblications to sponsors) +pre season races, like Italian, or French CC, and it's coing to be like 50 motos per year
I think thats a lit'l bit more than US shedule. 18 SX raace+12 nationals, and for some guys a MEC. Its total 30 motos per year.
So cut the crap already about how tight the scedule in Ama is compared to MXGP.
Get you facts strait guys, before you going to whine here how AMA guys is so exousted becose of the tight shedule

I was at WW last year and AMA riders won 3 of 4 motos. I remember being on the fence all day yelling at Eli and RJ as they got it done. The MXGP guys are fast but everyone has their good weekend and their bad ones. It was on our soil, but in their sandbox and by all their rules and they played better you could say. We prepared for the fastball and got thrown a slider. There are excuses and there are facts, I guess it depends which side you come from as which way you view them.

On another note I'd rather have a drink and talk MX with any MXGP fanboy over someone who doesn't enjoy watching dirt bike racing like I do. So thanks MXGP guys and AMA guys for giving each other something to argue about lol.

One last note, the AMA guys also make better 2 stroke videos...grin

Yo Keinz you know they do 2 motos at the AMA nationals right? Redo that math please...

Guys, at old school rough as hell MX, the Euros are better.

Gotta be from 2 day GP’s and limited grooming and overall amount of time in an MX track throughout the season.

SX Americans rule and and high speed flowing MX like the US nats provide it gets pretty even (see US GP last year).

That’s all. Just depends on what you like best maybe but it’s all dirt bike racing.

I personally could do with half of the supercross races and more nationals.

It's a legitimate point ,why don't the faster guys come over and race SX ?

Probably the same reason the faster American supercross guys don’t go over to GPs and race those.

Why should they?
If I was a GP rider making Millions in a known environment, living in my own house, close to my family and friends, getting paid to travel the world, etc... Why would I give that up just to try to prove something to people on the internet and risk my career by getting injured in SX?

It would be nice to see how an outdoor specialist would do on a SX track . It would cool to see if they could break into the top 10 or even finish on the lead lap.

Excuses!! Actually sounds a lot like the reason the American riders don't really hang it out in a one off race that they don't make a $1 to race. Just say'n.

Dylan ferrandis, marvin moose can, ken roczen, zach ozborne, and soon to be (hopefully) thomas covington proves that after some time they can be just as competitive at sx as the gp's.
