..boy's.

Come on James, get your outdoor settings lined out and show up at Glen Helen for the GP on May 30th! Here's your chance to show the GP fans/riders what you can do when you're not riding for the team and your not trying to acclimate to an 8 hour time difference. This is your chance to exact a little revenge, if you will. Tony Cairoli and company need to be shown the fast way around GH, although they probably won't be close enough to see you.

Don't look for James or any of the other top Americans to race the GP at GH.

They would have noting to gain and everything to lose.

Yeah, but it'd give us bench racers at least two weeks worth of material.

You can't put a price tag on that!

Years ago when there was a USA World GP of motocross EVERY factory rider tried to find a way to compete in the event. If you ride for Roger DeCoster you already know you are racing the event. If your name is Ryan Vilapoto or Chad Reed you have sent your entry. If you want to win yourself back into the graces of the American motocross public then this is your chance James. Welcome back home.

You mean with home track advantage he should win... A GP series in different countries is another thing

James has never beat the GP boys before so maybe this is his only chance.

I'm assuming the loss/gain thing refers to reputations.

The best way for most of the top U.S. riders to stay the 'Best in the world' is not to put it to the test.

E.A.S.S.C. - as fun as it gets.............

Against a whole field of GP riders (well those who can afford the extra travel costs) who are all suffering from an 8 hour time difference?
Enough excuses, to be the best in the world JS has to win on BOTH sides of the Atlantic

I bet that in less than five years Youthstream will prove you wrong. Probably sooner than that.

A race on a free weekend on one of the most traditional mx-tracks in the US, close to the home of the "mx-industry" and with hopefully most of the top riders from the FIM championship. I think some of the teams and their sponsors will rank that just as high as an ordinary national.

Wait..maybe they don't want the bigger and better exposure on tv and internet, press from all over the world, a really nice paddock. The interest of the whole mx world outside USA....No you are right of course.

I a near future they will find out they only have to sponsor one outdoor championship that runs all over the world(Europe, N/S America, Asia, Australia)

Yeah, so did Steve Everts. Did he ever come over and contest a National? If so, how did he do? btw...Everts coming to the states in 99 to race the Budds GP doesn't count.

James can't even beat RV outdoors....

The message posted above is most likely my opinion and shouldn't be taken as fact....

ohhh and you're absolutely correct !!!! Sort of like Everts had at the Des Nations.
For once you made a proper statement.

Well 69, JS said he was the world's best on Bubbaworld, not me.

Everts may not have won a National, but Bubba hasn't won a GP in Europe yet. ( I hope he does though some time). Everts has 101 GP victories.
We all know what happened when they last raced each other. Everts made Bubba look amateur, Bubba had to take one for the team. (And rumour has it he couldn't sit down for a week wink)

I didn't mention Everts, but seeing as you did I'm glad I had the chance to set the record straight. smile

Will Bubba be ok with Californian food though? I'm a bit concerned he may get poisoned with all that Mexican influenced cuisine. 8(

Wrong! Everts was a BELGIAN sand rider.
The MXDN was at Matterley Basin in England, a brand new SX style hardpack track. It suited the Americans perfectly, I spoke to RC on the day and he loved the track.

Everts had rode that track once wink

Let me tell you what, if you think Everts didn't have an advantage due to location, you're a fool. Even if your opinion of the Matterly track suiting the yanks is correct, it pales to the fact that James' travel experience is limited at best. Everts racing in England would be comparable to James leaving Florida and racing in Texas. Give me a break.

As for Everts dominating the GP's for 10 years....big deal. He wasn't racing the best in the world. Your best all left the GP's to race in America. Even The Man, Decoster said Everts wouldn't have had all those titles if the Alby's, Tortellis's, etc would have stayed in Europe.

Everts is an extremely talented rider, but the fact he hid in Eurpoe all those years diminishes his sucess. THAT IS A FACT!!!!!!

HAha, Its not a FACT at all, just your biased opinion.

You have a seriously narrow view of the world if you believe Belgium and England are the same. Distance wise they may be similar to Texas/Florida, but you've forgotten the different language, culture, food, terrain, track style etc etc. We eve drive on the other side of the road.

However, I brought this on myself by posting about Bubba in the first place. What is great about this GH GP is its just like a second MXDN already! The transatlantic mudslinging has already begun! Shall we start on the fuel/noise/drug issues yet, or wait a few weeks? wink
