Anybody else have the feeling that this kid is just wayyy too over hyped and if he doesnt consistently stay up the front all year round everyone will just write him off even though he is only 17. Hope he does well but honestly i can just see everyone getting disappointed when he starts to make heaps of 17 year old mistakes...

Plot twist, Hunter out races him in 2021 and everyone jumps ship onto the hunter train!

He does seem to be extremely hyped. Hopefully he can save the money he is getting this year, avoid the track snacks, stay focused and stay healthy. Basically do the opposite of Austin.

Could’ve/would’ve/should’ve won his what(?) 3rd sx race ever entered and won the last national this year. Barely turned 17 yrs old and won the national, got on the podium in sx at 16 yrs old. The last 16 yr old to come out and win was AC I believe. Before that I think was Millsaps and before Millsaps was Bubba and Pastrana. I’m not a fan of all the media super hype, but I think it’s deserved. He had a solid summer and was way ahead of any other rookie this year too. I wonder if Honda can get that bike up there or if he would’ve been better off signing with PC Kawi, Star Yamaha, or Factory KTM for a better bike but Hunter would’ve probably had a more difficult time finding a ride?

If the kid can go half as fast as the hype, he's a gold mine.

Kid is fast, good looking, good personality (funny), has that strange accent.

I'd milk the kid like some teenage Tiger Beat heart throb.


Sometimes, you don't have to win, or win championships, to sell product.

You can’t deny the absolute talent he has. Many people saw it already in Europe. Didn’t expect him to grow so fast, but he did. I still think people underestimate his brother though. He has a perfect technique and riding style. I’m glad that I’ve seen Hunter ride on tracks like Valkenswaard and Loket. Made it look incredibly easy.

What is “over hyped”? Look at his age, results thus far, riding style and then factor in marketability...He’s one of the most exciting stories in the 250 class.

In a perfect storm, Geico shut down and allowed him to create his own brand and capitalize off it. Good for him.

He’s already delivered some results after a summer of racing, and clearly is naturally suited for SX.

You’ve got some weird jealousy issues if you interpret this as overhyped IMO.

Such a fickle sport.

Look at Ryan Villapoto v Ben Townley.
Some great racing, with Ben the faster pleanty of times.

The difference in career trajectory down to a few lucky/unlucky breaks.

If Jet wins a championship, then breaks his arm it might go a very differently than an injury before a title.

I’m a big fan - go Jet.

Jett is the real deal. Hunter needs to stay healthy for a season.

100% agree. Jett is the real deal (generational talent), it was obvious back in Europe. And Hunter is definitely underrated at the moment.

Villopoto broke his leg so bad he should have never been racing again, I’m gonna say Kawasaki’s were the reason he won everything!

My wife and daughter both said the same.

He was described as having a "Harry Styles" look and swagger. Now, whether you like that guy or not is irrelevant, the girls swoon.

If young guys want girls to swoon over them, then need to be more like HIM

Remember hair bands?

They don't have hair commercials like they did in the 80s. Probabley cause the PERM faded. But its been a while since we had a prince charming on the box.

He was giving him a complement. Think Icey is a fan not a hater.

The crf won the championship last year. I think it is fast enough.

Fast and marketable. Bright future ahead of him. As someone mentioned earlier, as long as he doesn't make Austin's mistakes, the sky is only the limit. If he wins the next two SX championships, would he be the youngest premier class prospect in the last few years?

Jett is the whole package, 100% marketable! That’s where the money is!

Granted Jett is fast, hype and popularity isn’t just based on results or championships. Get a charismatic kid that has speed and it’s a win-win. I hate the term ‘influencer’ but he’s marketable as fuck. Handsome young dude with an Australian accent and has speed, it’s tough to not lean into him as a marketing platform.

I think popularity is often confused with “hype”. He is a race winning athlete and is entertaining off the bike. Tough to ignore.

I'm an Aussie, so I am cheering for both of the brothers.
The popularity or hype for Jett is deserved because of his early results, although we can look at Hunter and see the opposite side of Motocross fate.
Hunter had some early results and is just as talented, although due to luck and mistakes he is now almost a year behind in development.

Go Aussies.

Depends if he stays on 2 wheels or not. From what I heard his SX prep is going very well and most of the guys that saw him ride I've talked to told me he will be the man to beat in the 250 class.
