That absolutely blows for Simpson, I'm gutted for him. England can still do ok in the results overall I guess.

I hope Denmark and Canada get up there and dice it up at the front. Excited for some good racing tomorrow!

So sorry for Simpson.
I truly hope Italy wins it, simply for 222. What a class act for his entire career. Feel free to disagree but anyone who does can kiss my hairy redneck ass right in the balloon knot.

He's still going to ride. As long as he can control the pain he should be ok. It's surprising how little you use thumbs to ride. I had a bad injury to mine and had the joint removed (it's now an inch shorter) and it never affected my riding.

BTW apparently Herlings didn't use his start device in his qualifying race but I don't know if that was deliberate or an oversight.

Looking for Italy to make a run at this!

I was fast... But being fast is relative to who else is on the track with you.

With ZachO retired, it's JA21 and AP for me...

TG243 fan!

Looks like most wants to see Italy win for TC send off. But France will likely win again as every other team has bad luck. Maybe not with lucky charm Paulin retired from MXoN?

Not so sure about that. If the Dutch give Coldenhoff the first gate pick and anticipate a scratch result for vd Moosdijk and then Herlings second gate pick in his races (he’ll get to the front anyway) I see no team getting near the Netherlands.

Imo it will depend on Lupino. Today he didn't look great but he didn't have anything to gain in that race either unless he got a 3rd or better
Cairoli > Coldenhoff
Guadagnini > v/d Moosdijk

Coldenhoff is likely to finish 2nd or 3rd behind Cairoli and then one of vd Moosdijk’s results will decide it imo.

So first you don't buy their submarines, and now you want them to lose the Nations? Give them a break!

This race always has too much variables and strange luck and fastest team doesn't always win. Thats what makes it greatest and roller coaster. I hope to see Italy win with Tony winning last moto as GP champ is too far for him to win now. It is my hope anyway but Dutchies have to be favorite right now with Herlings in form and FMOTP with 1 good race from Moose

B-Final riders are doing their warm-up. Seems like Morocco, Silva from Portugal and Nerush from Ukraine aren't lining up today.

I guess it's between Finland and Ireland for the last spot in A-final.

Count me in as someone rooting for Italy this year. Everts got a great send off race and I’d love to see Tony get the same.

Are you smart enough to buy a bike that costs less, weighs less, makes more horsepower per cubic centimeter, can be rebuilt for recycled aluminum can money and is giggle inducing? It is hard to believe that the American riding public flunks this test en masse. How stupid are you?

9/26/2021 12:11 AM

Come on Italy.. That's coming from a brit 😊

Well it's not raining yet but looks cloudy...

I think the track could use a drizzle to make it a little softer. I've never seen Mantova so hard-based as this weekend.

It's going to rain and rain hard this afternoon. Typical.

Ya can't beat a mudder.

Oh, dear.. It's already very onelined right now when it's dry. Starts will be even more key as usual. And I hope the Belgian crew takes plenty of goggles with them, as 15th and 30th gate pick will cause a lot of tear-off use laughing

9/26/2021 12:58 AM

its raining now.

9/26/2021 1:06 AM

A-final group 1 warming up now!

|

9/26/2021 1:10 AM

No Alvin Ōstlund today so that ruins Sweden's chances on a good result, as they'll register only 4 results instead of the needed 5.
