Would RedBull KTM want an SX-only rider?

No and there's better prospects to choose from.

So besides Ferandis and Barcia who both seem signed already. Then who would you choose just curious ?

I voted yes, because I'm on the cutting edge of factory moto news here in New Jersey Bro.

Hes definitely deserving in the sense that he's good enough. But not doing mx sends the wrong message. Guys are gonna come and say he shouldn't have to prove anything. Well, if he wants a ride like Red bull ktm then yes, he does have to. If he's fine with what he's doing then keep doing what he's doing.

And Malcolm hasn't done anything on a 450. At least with McElrath theres potential. Your ceiling with Malcolm is a top 5 once or twice a year.

I dont wanna sound like a negative Nancy because I like Malcolm and I want him to do well. But theres a reason why he's scrounging every year to find a ride, and it ain't his speed. We will be having discussions like this one every single year until he calls it quits.

Yes Mc Elrath who pulled out of the 250 class to get a ride this year. The same Mc Elrath who is trying to get back in the 250 class again next year. Whoosh he is setting the racing scene on fire for sure. Hope he gets a ride on a 450 but him over Mookie in supercross is comical.

Red Bull KTM probably won't hire SX only.

mxb2 and agn5009 aren't on board with Mookie, who could have guessed laughing

I'm on board with him. I said I like him and hope he does well. Looking at it through a factory team perspective, I want to see him out there proving he wants to be a full time racer. Lots of other very talented guys had to do it and it paid off for them.

Boy vital just never changes. I had to check this thread to make sure it wasn’t from 2017.

Malcom is good. Picking Shane over him even hypothetically is idiotic

Idk about this, but on a side note James is definitely coming back on an electric GasGas. I've read it here several times.

I would hire Malcolm to ride over Jmart and Mcelrath any day of the week. Just based on whoopspeed, genetics and flair alone! I would like him to stay with motoconcepts but dang.. If the stars would align for this kid it would be an incredible story!

|

10/6/2020 6:34 PM

Mookie is the top SX points finisher from last year without a ride right?

JMart may turn out to be better than just his 2nd at Daytona on a 450 over time..

Genetics? That makes less than zero sense.

Maybe see if Pastrana is available. Fastest whoop speed speed ever and flair for days.

What's idiotic is asking for a lot of money to race half the year and sit on the sidelines during summer to go fishing.

Mookie has grown on me but Mav is correct with Mookie wanting to sit out the summer-he doesn't have that kind of pedigree (MC, JS, CR). And JMart is a warrior, a year round racer who is good indoors and out. Mav I'm a little suspicious of Shane M though....I dunno, my spider sense tingles when it comes to him and I'm sure I'm buying what he is selling. His best rides have been Mookie like at times, straight up fast, but he has thrown in a bunch of eggs too so I don't know.

Since you’re clearly sitting at the negotiating table with Mookie care to share any other details?

No one seems to hate on Hill or Friese for racing half the year

Redbull KTM. Not enough promise to chance him Roger wants a complete rider and one without baggage (nothing wrong with family but)
RMATV KTM, gear issues


If he is on KTM, the only team i expect he could be at would be Tedder with Davalos. Its SX only, factory parts are obtainable and he might keep Seven.

or he goes private again in which case parts accessibility is a key factor

Malcolm's 450 career has been a trainwreck in management. Starting the series late 2x, no desire to ride outdoors, leaving MotoConcepts while we are in the Covid tank come to mind as bad management examples. He's talented, but I've never understood the Mookie fever for a guy who has never had a big bike podium in his chosen field of play (SX). Ironically he has a moto podium on the big bike in the field of play he doesn't like to partake in.
