Time for the blistering fast track of Orlyonok (if it's dry). Additional classes: EMX250 and EMX2t.

Simpson is out after a crash at the British round in Blaxhall last weekend, he will miss a couple of GP's. Vlaanderen is on the list, but it's uncertain if he will line up. Nagl probably will come back in Germany in two weeks time. Herlings will probably be back this weekend.

Not much entries in the Euro-classes, due to the far and difficult journey.

can Desalle do it again ?

|

the funniest thing about this particular signature is that by the time you realise it doesn't say anything it's to late to stop reading it

6/4/2019 10:59 AM

No Tonkov unfortunately.

6/5/2019 1:04 AM

Confirmed: Herlings will line up.

He said he is aiming for places 5 to 10. Sounds realistic, although if he suffers severe arm pump it may be lower.

I dont get why they have the emx2t race in places far away from where the majority of the entrants come from.

That calendar is a list full of bullshit events for those guys. Russia,Latvia,Turkey and Portugal. Who can pay to go to all those races? Only a hand full of guys with big sponsors or daddy has some.

To let that class grow to something better they should have 6 or 7 rounds central in Europe and getting riders interest.

This is to be honest a shitshow IMO, while it can be an amazing class with 40 2 strokes...

DeStouwer, wondering if Jeffrey will wear #84 or #1? I know it's mandatory now in the U.S. for defending champions but not sure about MXGP?

He never ran #1 in his mx2 days so I presume he’ll run the 84. Never thought of that to be honest.

He did when he was at Glen Helen one year but maybe that's because he had just clinched? Like when RC did it his last race with Honda (also at GH)



Just curious, very used to seeing him #84, just like Antonio is always #222...

They can choose if they run the #1 plate or there own number.

JH always rode with 84 except that GH round when he wrapped it up the week before.

Tony also rode always with 222

Prado won the title last year to and is with 61.

The last few champs who rode the big #1 where Jonass last year and Tixier a few years before that.

I like the number idea of the US more, defend youre title with the big #1 plate..

Looks like 2016, no neck brace.

I’m sure he ran the #1 plate in the 2nd race at Assen after he clinched the title in the 1st.

Thanks, I like the idea of #1 too, but I did get used to seeing RC as #4, Reed as #22, etc. And Jeffrey's #84 and Antonio's #222 are now just as familiar...

I couldn't agree more, but also for MX2 and MXGP we have races we shouldn't have. Obviously i understand the position of Youthstream. Does anyone know if the teams that run the full season get their travel expenses from the organisation for races like in Indonesia?

i dont understand how they dont run the #1, they have worked there ass off there whole life to achieve it. theres no better number as a kid looking up to mcgrath running it nothing looks better

6/6/2019 1:39 AM

I guess there is some superstition amongst the riders. Last #1 in the GP field was Jordi Tixier in MX2 in 2015 and he never won a race since.

As far as i know the teams don't get compensated for the travel expenses. It's the reason why we have so few riders at far away places.

But i don't really mind it for MX2 and MXGP, i mean it's a world championship and they are professional teams and riders. But for the EMX2T (and WMX) even the topriders are amateurs.

It is nothing to do with superstition and everything to do with money. It is a marketing and merchandise strategy for the rider, something to sell to the masses - like the whole VR46 yellow brigade nonsense you see in MotoGP. Marc Marquez running his number 93 instead of number 1 or Lorenzo running 99 instead of 1. It's is utter bs this is allowed and shows disrespect to the other team members that helped the rider to his World Championship win. Jonathan Rea seems to be the only rider in a major world motorcycle championship who shows the honor to run the number 1 plate, as it should always be for the World Champion.

It is good that the American championships make the winner run the ultimate number that every competitor is striving for.

VR46 Brigade probably makes as much money with merchandise as with his salary.. These guys have their reasons. But I agree for MXGP, would be cool to see the champion with nr 1 plate

6/6/2019 6:23 AM

Oh it's clear that '46' has enormous value. But is really has turned into a brand and not much to do with being a number. Imo if he in 1996 would have started using a logo of a teddybear with 'VR' on his belly and 'market' the **** out of that in stead of ''46' that teddybear-logo would be just as popular as 46 is today.

At least in Nascar i get it with the numbers having such a prominent place on the car, but it's impossible to recognize 46 on Rossi's bike when he is at full speed.

EMX250-rider Rubén Fernández is out with a broken vertebrae, sustained at the Italian National round last week. It's unclear how long he will be out.

I think 5-10 IF he has armpump, if not probably 3rd place. Don't see who could keep up with him besides Tony and Gajser, if the armpump stays away

Desalle beat everyone straight up at thisbtrack last year. Its a very different track. Very very high speed at som places

|

6/7/2019 3:06 AM

Yeah cause it is a shitty track to pass. Both Herlings and Cairoli were faster in race 1, which Desalle won. But Cairoli couldn't pass Desalle who took the holeshot and Herlings couldn't pass Cairoli.
Looked like there was a three way battle if you see the result but in fact it was a boring train from start to finish. Start will be key here.

I’m also a fan for the reigning champ running a big fat #1 on their bike like they do in the US.
