Jordon Smith...?

First let me say I’m not a hater of Jordon Smith...he’s a North Carolina boy and I always root for the locals. However, with that being said, what is with him with getting so aggressive with JMart the past two weeks? Last week was self-explanatory and then this weekend he gets really sketchy with him on the triple, forcing JMart off the track. I’m not a JMart die-hard either, but I just feel like Smith needs to cool his jets a little...thoughts?

No problem with JS here, but his GF is pretty fan-worthy

She is WAY out of KTM’s league. She needs to be with a Factory Kawi rider. tongue

It's not just Smith, it's all the East 250 riders. They are all super aggressive but that aggression leads to some dumb decisions. Like Ferrandis' past attempt last night on Forkner. It was low probability and when it didn't work it basically handed the race over. And Zacho, jeez he tries to run it in hard on every pass attempt. I know he's aggressive but so far this year he's on another level. I have to say it was good to see him get beat straight up, especially since so many people think he will run away with the title.

But yeah Smitty was pretty aggro on Jmart on the triple. Karma got him in the end.

Osborne isn’t running away with anything this year. I don’t think he has Forkner speed in him. Forkner learned last night he can win a race with a lot of pressure on him. If he gets good starts, he’s gone.

He dove to the inside of Martin on the last lap after coming through the pack following his first turn crash. Overly aggressive I’d say but definitely not a blatant take out. Just a young 250 rider going for it on the last lap. Last night, Martin messed up the section before and put Smith in an odd spot. Should he have doubled the triple just because Martin made the mistake? The angle Smith was forced to take due to Martin’s mistake put him there. If he hadn’t done a slight scrub then he’d have gone straight over into Martin near the tuff blox. The only other option was to double. Martin was the one that made the mistake, so he probably should have doubled once he realized he didn’t have the line on Smith. He didn’t, so he went off the track and crashed.

The move on Martin last week was stupid.

The "move" this week? Nothing wrong with that, Martin should've backed out and doubled the triple.


Overall Smiths start to the season has been a bit of a let down if i'm honest. I expected that he would've been Osbornes main challenger together with Ferrandis. He seems to be quit a bit off the podium pace for some reason.

Forkner is going to be Osbornes biggest challenge. Jordan will do about what he always does. Between 5th-9th with an occasional podium if he gets lucky.

You kidding right? You must have a short memory. Last year Smith had the red plate before he crashed his brains out in Vegas. He had 2 wins and 5 podiums.

It looks like Forkner and Ferrandis are the two guys to do it.

Jordon Smith won multiple races last year, had the red plate and had the points lead in Vegas at one point. He is far from a 5th-9th place guy. That is why the first 2 races have been disappointments in my mind.

He’s going to kill it on a 450.

After one race.....you don't think Zach has the speed that Austin does? blink

1 race? interesting.

And there goes Jeffro. One of God's own prototypes. A super high-powered mutant of some kind never even considered for mass production. Too weird to live, and too rare to die.

Yaa i dont get why Osborne has to make contact with every pass he makes. It literally seems like every oass hes made this year he has made contact with a rider. I was hopin that Forkner was gunna put him on the ground early in the main. Wait till he moves up, the 450 guys wont take that.

Anybody think smith and jmart made contact in the air last night? I wish there was a different camera angle on that. It looked like it was pretty darn close if not.

No, I saw Forkner go down in the first turn, then again in TX and still rode to 5th place.
