No excuses needed. Not only was team USA not competitive, they were irrelevant. I'm sure the boys in red white and blue tried their best, but they aren't even in the same zip code right now as the MXGP'ers - even on home soil. Hell, they were dropping anchor in the third moto. And look what riding the US Series did to Roczen, he wasn't all that competitive either.

Bitch slap of truth.

Herlings said "hopefully people will stop talking about it, we smashed USA"

Agreed 50000%, they indeed did smash USA. What a great event though. And France was FANTASTIC.

no excuses. The usa clearly doesnt have the talent to compete at this moment.

Kinda tired of comments like "not as good as the MXGP riders". Kinda hard stats game with 3 riders vs everyone else and if they underperform its so noticeable. Really they'd fit super well in the GP series and make the racing even closer.

IF Searle's bike had not broken... Oh wait. You mean for the USA team. smile

Nice avatar pic, hanging out with your bronies.

Piss poor starts for sure. It just doesn't cut it at an event like this in those conditions. I still believe that the US has legit world class mx riders but today wasn't the day that could have shown it. No excuses. Hats off to all countries that showed up and raced and more so to France for their streak. Don't those frenchies like supercross too? wink

What’s your excuse? MXGP riders are better in motocross so no surprise the US got smoked. Great Britain can’t even get on the podium, though? Those riders from convict island even beat your team.

I’ll grab a Victoria Bitter...

I thought you were referring to the excuses Team GB would have for failing to make the podium more than a single time in the last 21 years. Maybe not.

Four wheels move the body, two wheels move the soul.

Sometimes you win, sometimes you learn.

Probably, but with Musquin and Ferrandis the French have a good Supercross team as well.
Team them up with Soubeyras or even Paulin and they have a chance.
In a few years Moreau will join them.

To people in Europe, it's not their country against the USA. It is the whole of Europe against the USA (besides keeping them from becoming part of Germany a couple of times). It's like beating your bigger brother at SOMETHING.

Let them enjoy it for a while, then go back to using:

the internet
light bulbs
telephone
TV
etc.

Euros, be sure to come on here talking about MEC on Saturday. Most of you WILL be watching. (just not rooting on many Euro riders)

I think this was a better result than USA getting a podium. It shows beyond reasonable doubt that our program is not as good. Its not the Euro tracks, it's not the schedule, its not the time change. Something must change.

Jeff Emig announcing is what ruined MXON, and what could have been....

Speaking of bad starts, Cairolo went from last to 6th place in the first moto...

Lol all the things you listed were invented by Englishmen apart from the lightbulb

But honestly, the only really bad performance today was Plessinger. Not sure what was wrong with him but that's not the guy from afew months ago or even yesterday where he went down in the lead.
Had he only equalled Ferrandis scores the US team would have been on the podium. He was equal or better than Ferrandis more often than not this season.

No excuses, the Euro MXGP rider's are the real deal.

At least Team GB (5th) with a Dnf for Searle with blown bike still beat Team USA (6th). Like kippers, your boys got smoked!tongue laughing laughing

I am NOT trying to be a douche, but do you really think USA would not have done better on normal Red Bud dirt than the sand that was used to save the event from being a mud bog?

Henry Kullats or whatever his name is beat Barcia twice. He's a no fucking body if it was dry.

To those looking to gloat.

Hey fuckheads, we didn't do it this year, so what.

Congrats to Team France.

We'll be back next year, see you then

Emphasis on SX in the US these days definitely is hurting MX skills. Supercross has become more of a freestyle MX stunt show rather than racing. Outdoor tracks at the nationals that are groomed way too much. Lack of depth in our rider pool. There are only a few elite riders anymore, whereas back in the 80's and 90's there were many elite riders. Team USA could send a B team and still win with relative ease, now an A team cannot even podium.
