Evidently no American riders need a ride? Or are American riders that slow?

Not many free agents produced what hunter did at MXDN, remember he was battling with osbourne. Jett's deal would of been included in that deal same as when they went to suzuki in europe.

His brother is just as fast if not faster Would of been a cheaper pickup than trying to poach an amatuer of similar calibre.

There are two kinds of people against dirt bikes, those who never tried and those who weren't good at them.

Yep they are. Remember the Nations?

And all the australian riders in Australia must be slower again given the amount of US riders in the Australian SX series this year by that rational. Sarc

Saw this kid ride on his rm85 at a local race this year. He reminded me of Herlings from 2007/2008 if you compared their riding styles. He definitely has as much talent as his brother

Good move by Honda. Cool to have both brothers on the same program.

Dungey, Tomac, Roczen(twice) etc.

It's almost a parody.

Maybe so, but they've had a lot of the best guys at some point. Suzuki is serious about racing... or was. Carmichael, Stewart, Reed, Pastrana, Dungey, Roczen etc. All raced and won in the premier class for Suzuki

Haven't all the factories "let them go?" Honda was the one known for not renewing riders
Honda let O'Mara go to Suzuki.
Yamaha let RJ go to Honda (Kaw passed him up)
Kaw let RC go to Honda, Honda let RC go to Suzuki
Kaw let JS7 go to Yamaha

It's impossible for a corporation or government to love you or care about you.

Seems like the powers that be have decided that yes, the American riders in line for that ride are indeed too slow.

If there was somebody available who was faster, cheaper and who provided more upside than the Lawrence boys im pretty confident they would've gotten the ride. But its a global MX economy so the Lorettas hot shots better get used to it.

Same as the Aussie kids had to swallow Nick Schmidt, Brayton, Blose, Faith, Decotis, Enticknap, Tonkov, etc. etc. etc coing to Aus and stealing their rides in recent times

Jetty is going to be faster than Hunter, I am pretty confident in that assessment. Bummer they are on WMG though

There's 2 moto's at the Nation's where Hunter finished 1st 250 overall and 2 races at the USGP where he finished 2nd overall. On a Suzuki RMZ250 !!!!! That's 4 and this kid is only starting to hit the big time. And if you look in the series results he raced in, you'll see his name. Better get used to the name Lawrence. There's 2 coming your way. Both with big talent. And yeah, they are taking your jobs. And money. Because they are better.
