So, um, now what?

Peick and Reed sidelined, and I don't think Hill has an outdoor contract?

Deano?

Reed is JGR’s SX only guy. Did something happen with Hill between last summer and now?

How about Josh Grant ?

Hill in for outdoors and hopefully jimmy too. Would be pointless to have 1 250 guy

I believe the team is contracted by Suzuki for two 250 riders in outdoors, A-Mart is one of them and I think the send might be Lopes.

That’s a shame jimmy deserves it he’s the quickest 250 rider they have in sx. I don’t think lopes is really better outdoors

Have you seen Jimmys outdoor results? Lopes would beat him no problem, and with a years worth of experience, a better bike, he should be pretty good

Team said this weekend that it’s just two guys confirmed at this point, Hill on the 450 and Martin on the 250. Reed had expressed an interest at doing some of his favorite Nationals, but nothing was set and that’s likely off the table now. As for the 250 class, that seemed uncertain still.

Not having a title sponsor is the issue. J Bone said they have come close, but at the last minute the companies have decided against it. They are still in the process of pitching companies, with more proposals set to go out soon.

Move A Mart to 450 let Peters and Lopes run 250 outdoors.

In the post-race interview Deano indicated he is likely staying with RS/Husky for outdoors. JGR could look at Chiz for the 450 spot, if he is not too injured after Saturday night. I don't think HEP has outdoor plans, and Chiz is already on a yellow bike. Also, on MX Vice they were indicating that Dean Ferris' deal for Febvre is only for a few races and that Ferris may still end up stateside, presumably on a JGR 450.

For 250s, I think Lopes is the obvious second choice as he's still progressing. As much as I love Jimmy D his outdoor results are pretty poor considering some of the equipment he's had over the years. It's been a while since Peters raced outdoors seriously, but if he was fit, he would be a better choice than Jimmy D as well. Sorry New England!

If JH46 is for sure riding outdoors his results will be spotty at best. Past history shows that. I think brringing Chiz (SX only with HEP) to JGR would be a good fit for outdoors. Consistent rider and veteran. Let him ride the bike after Nashville SX and finish out SX with JGR and go right into outdoors with them.

A-Mart is a legit title contender outdoors, def want to keep on the 250 and go for wins

JHILL and Chiz Add in Alex Ray on the 450 leave the 250 guys on 250's
JHILL will post spotty results at best unless JBone lights a you need a contract fire under his ass
Suzuki needs more yellow on the track

Jeez wasn’t tryna tigger you guys I’m aware of jimmy results outdoors in the past but he was also battling lime disease too, which I’m sure his program is more dailed now. Has Enzo been top 10? No . Honestly wish they would have them both on the team because injuries happen, all the other 250 teams will have 4 guys

Deano said on Matthes post race podcast that he will stay with Factory Husqvarna for the outdoors.

Current fleet of two wheeled vehicles:
- KTM SX 250 2020
- Suzuki GSX-R 600 K7 track spec

- Canyon Spectral:ON 7.0 2019 EMTB
- White GX Pro 20 Gravel

Keep Martin on the 250, keep Lopes for another outdoor season, then give someone a shot like McAdoo or Cunningham a shot on a 450.

|

I could have said JimmyD has been way better outdoors but those results are not that great. His Rippah videos were so awesome that he was just next person after JS7 in my mind. Now he seems best he been so sure outdoors would go much better if he gets bike.

|

3/25/2019 11:23 AM

Put Kyle Cunningham on the 450 outdoors and let him ride it. I guarantee he places better then Hill for the series.

Call me crazy but can we get Adam Enticknap and Alex Ray both on Factory Suzuki for a season?

At this point fighting for wins and a championship is out of the picture, might as well get as much publicity as possible and those two seem to be doing a hell of a job.

|

3/25/2019 3:02 PM

Broc Tickle......

|

3/25/2019 3:05 PM

Maybe they should just focus on 250s outdoors and run three guys this season. A Mart, Lopes and Jimmy D.

|

3/25/2019 3:27 PM

I vote for Cunningham, also. And I guess they can probably stop looking for a title sponsor with Reed out. Tough break for the team.

Yup...crazy with 722 anyways. Ray would be a good fit.

No need to worry though, JS7 is taking the top step on the team in his announcement (LOL jokes).
