Has any rider had worse luck with mechanicals? Seems he has one every year now outdoors! Poor guy.

I was so gutted for him. He was riding so well then for a mechanical to happen just plain sucks for anyone. I thought I heard the announcers say something about the gear box.

I’ve been pulling for him the last few years and it’s unbelievable the bad luck he’s had. Maybe he just rides the bikes too hard they can’t keep up with how hard he’s ripping out there lol I believe he’ll come back even more fired up and really start dominating the next few rounds

That was my first thought as he was looking at the rear of the bike. Figured it lost drive somehow, but he says it just cut out and he did appear to be trying to start it with the button at one point.

We can only hope, even the year he won the title he has bad luck at glen helen and had to pull a dungey style southwick comeback.

christophe pourcel had mechanicals in 2009 and 2010 that cut out huge points for him in the title chases. had he not had these he mightve been a 2 time mx champ

Like someone mentioned above, all you can do is ask.

I’m sure if you’d have asked the result would have been much better. ?

they're not obligated to anything.

but if they want to garner fan goodwill or whatever theyre after by posting it to begin with, it behooves them to not assume their fans are morans and don't remember every other time a team has fallen on their sword solely to protect partners.

being open with fans gets you more fans. and thats what this is all about isnt it?

You’re welcome to that opinion. I didn’t interrupt that post as falling on a sword or to gather goodwill. I simply took it as personal accountability and letting us know it wasn’t a supplier/sponsor/partner. I don’t recall anyone else ever admitting they just pushed the limit. I liked it and have more respect for them which makes me more of a fan. Mission accomplished.
