Fox should make some other colorways with that design and I would actually buy Fox gear again.

Yep, or take some ideas from the No Fear McGrath/Pastrana/Windham years and people would buy as quick as Taco Bell on a drunk evening

This was my favorite year of gear when racing as a teenager. Oh how I would snap that up so fast if Fox made it available!

Elzinga with a 2:12.835

Group A still has a session to go, but that would currently put him 3rd.

Bradley is my buddy, he grew up in Kenya at first then moved to Zambia. They moved around a bit for his dad’s work.
He is 24 currently, he moved to SoCal in his late teens to train with Seb Tortelli at the time, then when Seb moved back to Europe he trained with BJ at MXUniversity which is kinda his mechanic too.
He used to make the 250 SX mains everytime around 2017/2018, he used to ride for the Team Solitaire. Then in 2019/2020 he was sick, a sort of Epstein Barr so he didn’t ride much, he didn’t have energy.
2021 he came back to ride 250 West as a privateer but that coast was staked, he was quite close to make the mains but fell short. It was a bit hard to comeback after 2 years off and it impacted a bit his confidence.
He was really thinking to retire after Supercross and go to school to be a doctor or an engineer like his 2 older brothers but he decided to go back riding mid July (before that he didn’t ride since Atlanta SX, so it was a good break) to race the last 2 outdoors to see if he is gonna race next year.
As you all know it’s really expensive and has a privateer it’s hard to make money really.

Slade is 20 yrs old. There are a lot of SA industry people currently involved in US MX/SX who help our boys at various levels.

Larry Wosick who lived and raced in SA for many years against Wayne became great friend. Larry married a SA girl and they relocated back to he US. Larry's home serves as a base for the Smith family.

Kids leave SA for either the US or Europe mostly based on where they can get the most support. It is really tough financially as our currency is so weak. R15.5 of our Rand currency buys $1.

Live timing still not working, how is this even possible? You have to go to mobile page get it half work, but you have no segment times just the very basics. Shocking.

Thanks for the insight, always thought Brad was SA born and its the first Ive heard about Kenya. He is a awesome dude (spoken to him a few times on practice days) and wish him well.
