Great ride last night by Mookie IMO. The result itself wasn't outstanding but he seemed to stay about where he started which I don't think would have been the case for him a year ago. Great to see and I hope we get to see him at more than just two rounds.

I was on the Mookie Fever Train last year. Got off and took the bus about mid-season. Looking forward to A2. The Mookie Fever Train has announced a new service. Top 7 at A2.

He stayed on the lead lap which was a plus. 11-15 is where I see him unless he can come up with a bit more endurance. Let's see if he does a bit better with the short mains a bit more time on the bike.

The triple crown format should suit him
So yeah I'd agree with a top7. Maybe even a top5 in one of the races

On Main Event Moto, Blair said Mookie ran a baseline suspension setting and never tested suspension last week. Another interesting thing Blair said was that he heard Bogle will be out the rest of SX. So Mookie may be on GJR for the rest of the year and this will help him big time!

I hate to say it, but JGR has got a bad rap for setups. Now that Barcia turns into a podium threat it really smells like something's not right over there.

I think he looks slimmer and in better shape then he did this time last year. I hope that is the case so he will be more fun to watch in the mains this time around.

Seems like it fits certain riders. Peick clearly has it down. Was hoping to see how Bogle would do

If it looks like a duck, smells like a duck, and sounds like a duck....

There were photos posted of him testing Wednesday or Thursday with a showa jacket wearing guy on site. Absolutely not dialed in but I wouldn't call it an off the shelf type base being he is very familiar with it and had some adjust time with an expert. At least they had a little tweak time anyway for such short notice.

Looking forward to seeing what Malcolm can do at A2 with more time on the bike this week. The dude is undoubtedly talented and I can see him cracking the top 10 some weekends, but I don't think he (yet) has the fire/fight/confidence that is required to run near the front.

I'm of the same opinion.

I ripped a start from Egypt and I was happy about that.

Love seeing him out there. Hopefuly James shows up at some races to watch him.

Solid ride lot of fun for show.
Others say Bogle is riding at farm, others say he is out for whole SX..
If Tomac, Marvin or Wilson will end surgery.. JGR is lucky to sing Mookie so fast.

I could see him with peick like results with more practice and conditioning he's super talented.

He was one of my Pulpmx fantasy picks thanks to the 6 handicap he had. The double points were a plus. Considering how they are doing handicaps now, he will probably have 2-3. Not as enticing yet, but as his endurance improves and others keep getting hurt, he may blast open a huge points night one of these saturdays. So from a Fantasy point of view, he has big potential.

He did exceptionally well all things considered, better than I thought he'd do.
1.how long it's been since he has taken a gate drop.
2. Guessing he hasn't been doing a ton of riding and training since his last race.
3.The track was tough, even a bit sketchy.
4. New bike.
5. Little testing time.
I didn't expect him to crack the top 15 and if got a top 5 start I thought he'd slide back by mud Moro....but he held his own.
If he got hardcore with training and riding he could easily be a top 5 guy....he beat coop.

Did better than I expected.
