2017?

Covington confirmed that he will be racing for Puerto Rico in the Vital interview on the home page.

- Yamaha YZ450F 2020
- Suzuki GSX-R 600 K7 track spec
- Canyon Sender CF 8.0 2018 Downhill
- White GX Pro 20 Gravel

I'd say it's a tad too early to be picking riders for a race happening over a year from now.

2017 on the other hand...

Anyone seeing Deano on Team GBR?

Nobody ever told me, I found out for myself. You've got to believe in foolish miracles. It's not how you play the game, it's if you win or lose. You can choose. Don't confuse. Win or lose. It's up to you!

IMO he should be on the team.
That team is pretty hard to figure out though. Especially the MX2 rider.
Maybe they should put Anstie to MX2. Deano MX1 and Searle/Simpson Open (both are injured right now, so not sure how good they will be at the next GPs).

I think Simpson's new injury will rule him out for the majority of the rest of the season, so that probably rules him out. Tommy should return at Loket, if his return goes okay then he will probably ride MX2 with Anstie and Deano the 450 riders. From what I hear Mewse is the back up 250 guy and Ben Watson the back up on a 450. Both are good back ups and will surprise a lot of people if they are called upon

True, forgot about Searle on a 250,could work too

DRT has a good 250 and Anstie and Wilson both have factory 450's. Makes sense to me

A very reliable source told me that James Stewart will racing for U.S.A. at the MXoN on a Honda.

I heard Ireland has already confirmed their team for the next 5 years. The riders will be Graeme Irwin, Martin Bart and Stuart Edmonds, just like it has been since 1989. Do these guys never get old?

I think chamberlain is hoping to bring some young talent through the ranks for the mxon. I wouldn't be surprised if we saw either mewse or Watson in there. Apparently there could be issue with funding Wilson to get over unless husky put some help forward. We will see but my guess would be searle, anstie and watson. Hopefully tommy will come back strong, he has so much speed on a 250 when on form!

It's one thing focussing on the future, but you shouldn't do it at the expense of the present. None of Searle, Simpson, Wilson, Anstie are 30 yet. Anstie and Wilson aren't even close. I like the idea of having the likes of Ben and Mewse around the team before the event, but we have 4 guys who are all still well in their prime and are world class. I really like Ben and Mewse, I know Ben a little bit and he's a great kid and he's improving massively, but none if those guys are ready to replace Anstie, Tommy, Wilson or Simpson yet. I don't think we will have any issues when it comes to Wilson, he is on a factory team so he will be able to ride one of the GP factory Husky teams bikes.

To me the team should and probably will be Anstie, Tommy, Wilson.

Copius pattern amounts of phrases like “Anyone have”..., “Anybody know?”.... and their variations.

Thoughts?
Any help is appreciated!
Thanks in advance!

The Irish team have confirmed their riders but not what classes they will ride..

There could be a surprise in store as Philip McCullough explains here.

'It's one thing focussing on the future, but you shouldn't do it at the expense of the present.'

Especially when the MXdN is being hosted in GB. We have to select our strongest team to give us the best chance of doing well in front of a home crowd.

Searle was selected in 2006 at the tender age of 16 because he finished 8th overall in MX2, amongst a particularly strong field of riders. Watson is currently our highest ranking MX2 rider, and he's down in 15th in a lightweight class by comparison.

I too like the idea of having the younger guys around to learn from the experience though.

Absolutely. We just simply have to pick our best guys this year. It's 20 years since we last made the podium, we have a great chance at home to end that, you've got to pick the fastest most experienced guys.

The young guys can learn a lot from being around the team, but I don't think they are ready to step in yet

De Souza? Ramos? I figured those are the top2 brazilian guys right now
In the future they will probably bring Enzo Lopes on the team as well

Covington will beat whoever will be picked as the MX2 rider for team USA. That will be interesting.

I think Covington is almost at the stage where the USA could consider picking him, he just doesn't quite have the consistency. Something always seems to happen in one of the moto's, but I think he's proven himself to be one of the fastest in the class and his track knowledge would be good for the USA. Having said that, Osborne is absolutely brilliant this year and he also has experience of Matterley

Is Open a run-what-ya-brung class, or will Sanayei be on a 450?

I'm sure you can run a 250 in that class. People have done in the past

Some slight inconsistency still yes, but as of late he has been one of the fastest if not the fastest every race. He has been getting great starts all season which will help. And I think the track suits him and it will be a pretty much pressure free race for him. It wouldn't surprise me one bit if he takes the overall in MX2 at Matterly with a moto win and another good enough result in the class.
