He will need to get rid of those 5-10 place finishes in the future if he wants to win a 450 championship. With JMart and Osborne out he can afford to have a few mediocre finishes. That won't cut it in the future. That's why people have doubts or concerns about him being the next big thing.

And somehow he isn't good for MXdN consideration by many or just a maybe.

vomiting equals disqualification.

So far he had 3 great days where he went 1-1 and 4 mediocre days.
So if he gets picked fans better hope he catches a good weekend for the mxdn

He is tops right now, what other logical selection would there be? Everybody always says, "What have you done lately"? Guess he hasn't done enough.

No I agree, he should be picked. A Mart hasn't been more consistent. A lot of small crashes.

Yeah, true. It's gonna be a solid team with Tomac, Barcia and Plessinger.

Plessinger is killing it this year, and the ride yesterday was very impressive. He's on his way to being a double champion this year and hopefully an MXDN winner as well.

Plessingers off road GNCC experience will be a Big bonus for Team USA with the constantly changing Red Bud rutted soft soil.

Probably won’t happen but Barcia Anderson plessinger would be a good team

Good team? Yes. Not as good as Tomac Barcia Plessinger so there's that

I think he will be a lot more consistent on the 450.

X2. I've also noticed that his happy go lucky attitude maybe keeps him less rattled by pressure. I could see him doing well on the 450.

He will be great on the 450. I’m just a bit concerned about durability with his build but I’m sure Swanny and his crew have a plan for that. I wonder if they’ve purposely been keeping him light and slim for the 250?

He doesn’t get enough credit. He was flying yesterday

He has said he gets really rattled when he doesn't get good starts and can't seem to move up. He knows that's a really big problem of his. So no, simply by moving to 450s that won't change. He's gonna have to figure out how to get less rattled himself.

As already said ...needs good starts & can't wait to see him on 450's

You don't have to win them all. Get a points lead and keep an eye on those that matter in the points behind you, and keep them behind you. I always thought he was too big for a 250 and is at a disadvantage because of it.

Do you have the same concern with Marv?

There is no such thing as "the next big thing." A racer becomes a big thing when they do something big. Expecting "the next big thing" is like expecting a unicorn to knock on your door with a 12 pack of beer, which is to say, it's a foolish way to think about anything.
