The yanks are the only people moaning full stop mate haha. I've never seen so many people whine about such pointless crap

I really wish that Musquin would not have crashed at the end of moto 2 handing the overall win to Herlings that day.

Even if Musquin hadn't crashed, Herlings proved his point by crashing in the first turn and tracking him down from dead last.

I know of a particularly fast French rider who said it is not normal sand and that he had no interest in riding it either. Something about it not being like a normal MX race at all. I trust his judgment as he's raced it numerous times before. I think your ice race analogy is good, but a beach race is much closer to reality. Call me weird, but I'd rather see the best in the world compete on a traditional motocross track, that's all.

if you're referring to Ferrandis I dont think he ever rode it himself. they introduced it in 2015 and he was out injured in both 2015 and 2016 before going to the US in 2017 if my mind serves me right

Edit: but yes it's definitley not your normal mx track

If Ferrandis raced at Assen, he sure as hell didn't do well.

Looking at the 2015 ( first year there) and 2016 Assen results, he's nowhere to be seen. He either couldn't deal with the track, or might have been out with injury. So, he's not a particularly authoritive voice on the track. He was not much of a contender for the World Championships, never getting into the top 3 at the end of the season(s). Only when he got to the US, has he been in real contention for championships other than the French. Thank goodness the US gives aged out riders a chance at staying in the 250s. It saved the careers of both he and Zach, especially so. The age out rule in MX2 is utter, utter idiocy.

He is right in it not being a 'normal' race ( be it the track, or the event itself), and hell, I'd rather see the MXDN at another, established Netherlands track, but it's the same track for everyone.

After the abject humiliation Herlings heeped onto Tomac last year at the MXoN, why in hell would he feel the need to even walk five feet to race Eli? Jesus, ET3 is 0-2.

It's fucking Eli that needs to save face and track down Herlings and whip Herlings ass on his own soil. Hate to break it to all you fan boys but Eli is the bitch in this situation. Eli's the one that needs the redemption.

Well there you go guys, dimetime spoke and he claims Eli Tomac is a bitch.

The rhetoric you just posted shows us all that you're a complete headcase. Neither of these riders have anything to prove to anyone.

Ferrandis never raced at Assen

Tomac has wrapped it up, why isn't he in Sweden?

8/23/2019 10:18 AM

Eli and Jeffery are the two most exciting riders there are. That being said they both have downsides one is injured to much and one is 85 percent beast and 15 percent leaving us scratching our heads.

I stand corrected. He certainly has an opinion on the track though...and it matches mine, so it was very convenient for that response. Wasn't he in MX2 for three years?

I thought he went pro in 2011 but he only did 1 round in 2011 then did his full first season in 2012.
More like 5 years in mx2 but he did have speed but kept getting injured every year

15% when Jeffrey still a beast he crash and he is out for x week/months.

Some rider needs to respect a little bit more the sport or the sport will broke them.

Listen what the tomacs said in the racerX best post show. If Herlings crash hard again, he is almost done imo.

I think he's not smart enough to question himself about this aspect of the sport but I could be wrong obv.

I'm pretty sure the op is kidding but the only reason Herlings raced Ironman when he did is because he was already here for the USGP.

Dylan never rode the track, he fled to US.

They really need this race in August. Why would anyone want to train and not race for 5 weeks or better for 1 race.
