I wonder if Bogle will be back or JS17 is going to Gas Gas.

Seems like a good signing. Hopefully he can stay injury free and put in some good showings.

I sure hope they bring Bogle back. I was never much of a fan of his until I started paying attention to him more recently. He’s one hard working kid. Hope they keep Savatgy, and Bogle actually.

Hope he gets paid in cash. Hope the tracks have a straight rythm section.

Shane is a great kid, I'm happy for him.

He works hard at the track during the week, and I get the feeling he is still hungry to race and do well.

At least he and his wife can live at home back east now, instead of some shitty one-bedroom first floor apartment in Murrieta like he had to when he was with Star.

…because Jeremy Martin likes his nice 250 contract, they are not offering as much to ride a 450.

A 250 race winner is worth more that a 7th place 450 rider.

Happy for him.

This. Jeremy is definitely making more from Star in salary than he would at RMATV. There’s a reason Shane didn’t move to the 450s until he had to. He was cashing those same checks.

This is a good choice for Shane. The bike there is basically a factory bike. Better than an MCR, HEP, etc situation. Plus he’s getting to train back East where he’s comfortable. Next year is a prove it year from him. I’d say he needs to be a top qualifier a couple of times and probably land a top 5 finish in SX. The guy has insane SX speed. He has beat AC, Dylan, and Sexton straight up multiple times. This makes the 450 class even better next year.

That's exactly why.

He's a 2x Champion and a handful of SX wins

His ask is much higher and he's earned the right to ask or hold out for it

Unless I missed it, there has been no official announcement on JMart's future?
