Very real possibility, imagine being told that 5 years ago.

I'm loving it! I've been into mx since 83, so I remember how shitty huskys used to be. Micky Diamond did make them look pretty decent in 84 and 85 tho.

Anderson, Roczen and wait for it.... Reed. Who wins the title?

After two rounds? Maybe they might be....I hope Anderson can keep it on two wheels

I think the nod has to go to Anderson at this point, Roczen is unproven. Nobody knows what's going to happen the first time he goes down. The Aldon Baker record is at 6 or 7(don't remember when RV started with him) in a row right now.

Jesus am I the only one that noticed that Anderson was riding like a man possessed he was flying out there there was nothing that can could’ve done to catch him that was one impressive ride he was heading shoulders better than everybody out there and you can clearly see it I’m stoked for him this is bad ass in the rode awesome!!

There are some fellers , starting in the 50s to 80s that won a slew of world championships that would say Huskys were the top of the line in the day . while jap bikes were shit ...

Im talking the 1980s in America. Husky always did alright in Europe after they stopped winning in America.

Its gonna be roczen. Hes going to dominate for years too. Hes much better than anderson n already getting a second. The sport is roczens from here on out. Hes learned to chill out and accept seconds, thats going to be deadly. The way hes riding he doesnt even look like hes going fast, hes figured it out. He improves every week and now he got second, that means ws are coming. Hes about to dominate for years now that hes figured out how to ride for championships n not wins. You can see in his demeanor hes fine with 2nd. Before he wanted to win or crash. No more. Hes about to start rippin em off n hes already 2x mx champ.

I'm almost going to agree with drt above, except for one thing: Roczen's arm may prove to be a problem. If his main title rival turns out to be Anderson, you know he's going to have to bring it all the way to the end of every race; there will be no "get out front and cruise" opportunities.
I could imagine JA pulling off some last-lap passes for the lead like he has done so many times before. That kind of thing can really crush someone's confidence.

Braaapin' aint easy.

If Barcia can keep the yamaha ride and his head on strait I don’t see why he can’t earn a win, his endurance seems a little off but the raw speed is there. He’s been impressive these past two rounds.

I definitely see barcia winning one this year. Hes gonna lap webb that race too.

A Honda may get in his way...
