Absolutely fantastic radio listening to Mathes JT and Weige talk about an incident which happened after the races on Saturday on the Pulp review show. Mathes said he went over to the truck after the race and Max and his Mrs went crazy at him telling him to get out of the awning and that a certain member of the HEP team Was trying to get physical with him. Was anyone at washougal lucky enough to catch this unfold?

For the people who need filling in, basically Anstie's Chick a couple weeks ago took her frustration about Max's team out on Instagram by saying a few things along the line of max is risking his life riding this piece of sh!t, before hastily deleting the post.

Mathes obviously saw this (like a lot of us did) before deleting it, and called her out and said she cannot say those things about the team, also saying that the team don't do a post slamming max when he does crap. A few other bits were said but that's the jist of things...

What is it with Washougal and Mathes getting in to drama... #lasergate

How bizarre! Especially when Matthes was defending the team by saying that wives shouldn't post negative comments about the team.

So Matthes is now concerned with, and critiquing spousal social media content? That's journalism now? Sweet. Ask her what her favorite Pinterest recipe is while you're over there. Maybe "just moto" is too boring for people these days.

We went from Dave Despain reading us the news in a suit mid week to all these dorks with cellphones, cargo shorts, and worn out one-liners so quickly no one had a chance to go, "wtf"

Max should be mad at his wife, not Steve.

TMZ Matthes calls out someone’s chick, then goes over to their rig? Weird.

She probably shouldn’t have posted the comments but at the same time I get it. Obviously he’s not comfortable with the bike and for whatever reason they aren’t fixing it.

She also wrote, that max is risking his life riding the bike. If I was the team I would tell max don't ever bring that chick around here no more...

When did it become the norm to have your chick with you all day on the job anyway? Only team personnel at the rig solves the issue.

Wives/girlfriends are going to be extremely biased towards their man and whatever their man has to say. That's just how it is. Whether I'm happy with my employer or not, I don't want my wife going on social media and telling everyone how shitty they are. There's 0 to gain from it. The point Matthes is making is that she shouldn't be out there bashing the team with one side of the story. Just like the team has no right mid contract to get on social media and say their rider is riding like shit out there. If he doesn't like the team, then don't ride.

C'mon guys, it was "just a f*cking joke".

That's what she said.

But she's good looking, she improves the teams "presentation"

I hate saying this, as the father of daughters and someone who's all for women's rights and equality, but wives and girlfriends of racers need to STFU.

Clean his goggles, clean his pipes, keep your man happy and ready.

Team has its job, you have yours.
Sexist? Yes.
But you're part of the team. We all have our part to play.

These are highly tuned and mentally jacked race horses. I do not care what any of you say, they're mentally fragile with pretty much anyone but another peer racer.

Negativity festers and grows. If your partner (woman) is feeding that cancer, you won't get better. Have to provide positive reinforcement. Establish their concerns, but do not feed it, help find resolution together.

Public complaining helps no one.

I guess I can't say its especially the bike's problem. Maybe he isn't gelling with it right now but last season he showed good speed in multiple races and as everyone knows, Suzuki hasn't changed the bike on him. He also had a great start in one of the moto's, like 4th I believe, and couldn't hold it.

It seems the thing to have the chicks involved so much more with the euro riders. Look at musquin and dylans chicks, they are so involved they might as well be riding shotgun on the back of the bikes.

Max and/or his wife not wanting to talk to Matthes... who cares. A team member wanting to fight Steve for defending the team is dumb. Only this sport…

Actually, Milly Anstie should let her husband do his own PR. He's interviewed by Lebig and is very good at remaining positive while saying his bike is not where he thinks it should be, concluding "We need to work"...
BTW Jamie, he actually says that his bike is pretty much the same as last year while the others have progressed quite a bit.

I surely believe others have progressed. It's just a little hard to believe that Hartranft is on the same machine and is improving his results almost weekly now. Bikes are not magic wands. Power, weight, technology, handling, all helps but at the end of the day if the rider can't make it happen the easy scapegoat is the machine.

Both Dylan Ferrandis' girlfriend and Mathilde Musquin support their rider boyfriends/husbands...and they do it in a very positive way, from what I see. That said, I've never seen either one of them spout off on social media about anything at all...and certainly not anything derogatory regarding their significant others bike or team. Frankly, Max's girlfriend should be told to STFU. She's not the rider, she's not under contract, and she has ZERO to say about any of it.

If the bike was that bad, Max would not be riding it. If he thinks he could do better on another brand of bike. Go out and buy one and put your own thing together and prove you are worthy of a better bike. It worked for barcia and wilson.

Couldn’t agree more. It isn’t about just the motorcycle, it’s the team around it making it work.
There’s a reason a rider didn’t get an offer from a better team. If the current one isn’t good enough, go fund yourself what you think is good enough and show us the results.
