Lebron James responding to "Mookie worth every penny" Star says he's right.

I wonder how much money is Yami saving after the changes that now they can afford these many riders.

Awesome news, the only bummer is that it is SX only. I really want to see Mookie do the full season! But you never know, injuries happen and he might fill-in for Plessinger or Ferrandis.

Fantastic! I so hope he does outdoors.
This time last year nobody would’ve tipped Osborne for the 450 outdoor title, but look what happened!

Just shows that with a little luck and combination of things Piecing together magical things can happen and I truly believe Malcolm isn’t that far away.

The above may be fact or fiction, I may be serious, I may be jesting. I am not sure, you have no chance.

Tomac ain't gonna have an easy job backing his title if he doesn't get a handful good starts.

I’d say a better goal for Mookie would be to finish the 450 supercross series in the top 10 for the first time. Championship hunt is quite a stretch there.

Maybe Vitards should rethink bashing a team that supports so many riders in the sport we all love. What a cesspool of BS that thread was.

I'm happy and excited to see what Mookie can do on this team. I too would love to see him racing outdoors as well but unfortunately it doesn't sound like he's going to.

Is that his first time in his what is it 4 years on 450’s?

Edit: went ahead and grabbed the data. Sorry I like Mookie too but he needs a better work ethic to become a title contender. 2020 was his fifth season in 450 and his first time cracking a top 10 championship finish. Dude is lucky he’s getting a ride of the caliber he is. Bring on the thumbs down.

Wow...this is awesome. I am a bit surprised they will be doing a 3rd 450 and it was not Mcelrath.

The only thing I can think of that Mookie has benefiting him is time in the 450 class & a 250 SX title. McElrath has more wins but he starts going backwards after the first couple of rounds. Mookie's gotten hurt so that can be attributed to not always getting good results (best finish is a 4th I believe). Mookie is 28 vs McElrath is 26. Mookie may have only wanted SX which is easier for Star to provide a bike over McElrath that probably wants a longer-term SX/MX Deal. But who knows

If we're talking great starters, Vince Friese needs a mention.

Don't let facts get in the way of your bullshit...

Mookie is one of the fastest guys out to the gate, and attacks the whoops better then anyone in the class... but its his long game that needs work, he appears to get tired in the middle part of the main, and struggles for the rest of the race. If he can work on his endurance then he will be fighting for a lot of top 3s.

Eh, like Dallas Cowboys. Want to be America's team but when the owner flaunts his $$ and thinks he can buy a championship it turns people off...Glad Star can employ all these people, great for the sport, hope it doesn't lead to a crash and huge let down in a year or 2

He's good at riding a wide bike too. Dude always looks like he's hard to get around.

Unleaded tastes a little tangy. Supreme is kinda sour, and diesel tastes pretty good.

Great news, MCR is going to regret letting him go! w00t

Good on Malcolm...and on Star for making a way for him to be on a bike worthy of his talent. I know Star is sponsored by THOR, but I just saw a fresh ad for Seven gear with Malcolm's picture on it.

Did Mookie get to keep his Seven deal? Hope so. Family first, and all that...

Im sorry but McElarth and the Star Yamaha 450 should never be mentioned in the same sentence. #1 he just got let go by that team. #2 He underperformed greatly on the 250f which is one of the best bikes on the gate.

Do you promote an employee who doesnt deliever? I doubt thats the idea they wanna give their 250 guys. They got future 450 talent in their 250 lineup to promote (ex: JMart and Craig).

Mookie is worth the results gamble all day (imho). His raw speed and high amount of exposure brought to the table is second to just few.
