What did Forkner do last night for Denny Stephenson to jump on Twitter & call him “so fucking stupid”?

I’m assuming it was the crash. But that just made me laugh.

That may be the pot calling the kettle black.

Take it to the limit, one more time!

Just Forkner beeing Forkner. The kid is crazy talented but he can't seem keep his head together. He really needs to fix this if he wants to start winning championships.

Oh, and he can try to fix this attitude problem of his while he's at it.

Can you imagine how pissed you'd be to do this for a living, train your ass off, battle through injuries, only to be taken out in a bonzai pass at the second race of the year?

The black cloud certainly seems to follow him

He's incredibly fast, but as Carmichael might say, he needs to work on his racecraft.

Forkner reminds me of RC's rookie 125 SX season in 97.... but Forkner keeps doing it every year.......

That was a bone head pass attempt for sure! Took second in first race, setting in 3rd with 9 minutes on the clock. No reason to do that...at all.

Except that Denny was actually able to win a regional title.

The thing that frosted me was he was so cocky about Jett being talked about as his main competition and how he out road him so bad at the first race it was a joke to him.

That wasn't a pass attempt; that was a takeout and just stupid. He was riding plenty fast and it was early in the race and championship.
And a bad takeout since he went down too.

I don't buy that RJ was "turning in" a little hard like said on the broadcast. There was no arc for RJ where Forkner wasn't going to hit him hard.

I like Forkner's speed and feel bad about the crashes. But the choices like last nights blockpass/crash are stupid. What if he (or RJ) got hurt in the contact?

Triple facepalm for that.

I really want to like Forkner, I really do. Bonehead moves like this is making it really hard.

Same. Every year I think, "OK, he's gonna quit doing stupid shit and maybe learn a little bit of humility" and then he doesn't.

Yeah Forkner and Ferrandis have some questionable passing techniques thats for sure.

That is the perfect example. Maybe focus on his technique and lighten up on his intensity, something needs to change.

Hey LKHill where did you hear Forkner talking about Jett after the first race? I would be interested reading or watching him talking about him.

|

1/20/2021 8:10 AM

Maybe he just needs a good woman to settle him down.

I wondered as well. I remember someone else mentioning about it on a racerX interview. I believe this is what they are talking about.

It's funny, it almost reminds me of the Justin Cooper and Jett dog on podium thing last year. The next round Jett came out and beat Justin and the rest. Although I do think Jett's post about the dog wasn't cool.

As a Forkner “fan” this really disappointed me. One more lap and he could of made that pass no problem. Looked inpatient and out of desperation for no real reason.

Yup....another sensible down-home Monster-girl should do the trick.

I was raised just off HWY 126 in the 80's.

Same here ! I can't understand why he tried that poor pass with 10 minutes to go...I'm sure he is mad at himself right now and i would love to hear what Mitch told him at the truck.

Forkner - Million dollar talent, 10 cent brain.

|

1/20/2021 9:00 AM

You would think....AT SOME POINT......he would listen to someone. Surely Mitch has been in his ear.
He's what..22? That seems young but at some point he's got to stop riding like an idiot.

Forkner should be in Sexton's position by now. Instead he will likely keep slugging it out in 250s because of really poor decision making. Doesn't make any sense.

I ripped a start from Egypt and I was happy about that.
