One 250 SX title in eight years really ain't much for such a technical rider who's a genuine title contender in both SX and MX.
What do you think is missing and do you feel he'll ever get a title again?

I agree. He sucks. ermm

8/25/2018 4:32 PM

Title contender doesn't mean winner... there can only be one. He has done better than most during the past 8 years... He probably won't win an outdoor title, but maybe indoors. Time is running short though.

Nothing's "missing." Tomac exists, is all.

He relocates to a foreign land and is in the mix for all titles. Respect....

I Agree there can only be one champ per year .
But he still has time he could be the 2019 SX champ
He isnt far off just needs a few things to work out in his favor

A cheeseburger. Who decided that a 450 rider needed to weigh 129 pounds?

Holy shit, I wonder if Aldon ever considered that?

You might be onto something with this one Newmann.

Honestly, pizza worked for Roczen.

After he bounced from Aldon's program he bulked up and started kicking it up.... aside from the gnarly get offs.

Would you say the same about Windham?

I'd say Marvin is winning, and has nothing to be ashamed of. He didn't win this title but he made Eli work until the final moto of the year. Marvin is one of the best in the world right now, and just got edged out, plain and simple.

Eli’s factory bike taking a shit had far more to do with the title being close than Marvin.
One thing Marvin is undisputed leader in: most elapsed time of podium interviews. I’ve never seen someone spend that long justifying why getting your ass kicked is okay.

Not saying he should be ashamed. But coming once again oh so close and missing must get real frustrating.

It came down to the last Moto if the year. What more can Marvin do. I’m not even a fan of his. Props to both riders.

Yeah, can't help but wonder if he truly wants it hard enough. Always positive after getting beat, always saying "I tried my best and got some good points" even when his title hopes are fading. He'd have the right to appear pissed every once in a while...

Marvin was once again beaten this year by a better rider, there you go. However, other than Eli Tomac he had everyone else covered - so it was still a solid year for MM also. To get on the level of ET? It's the same problem for everyone having to race against him; they either need more sheer speed or must rely on him having a few "disaster motos" along the way. It's going to be difficult though because Eli definitely looked to make a leap this year in his riding, he was much more convincing in the way he won the title this yr.

He’s taken it down to the last Moto of the year, two straight years.

And you are asking if he really “wants it” ???

I’m not a Marvin fan. But for fucks sake give some credit.

Can't think of a guy this good with only one US title in such a long time, that's all. Yeah, maybe Windham... And it's still one more than DV.

Maybe MM just isn’t as fast as KR and ET. Reference Dungey during Villiploto’s reign....

I do not think that is a negative against Marvin. Wil Hahn had some good speed some nights. Wil just seemed to be too injury prone to be consistent at that level.

I don't know but I think he's done very well for himself. Won a world title, moved to a different country with very little English, won some races, won a 250sx title, still a top contender to this day.

Of all the guys that have won a 250 title whether SX or MX that moved up to the 450 class I'd say he's one of the more successful one's.

A lot of guys would wish to have the same kind of success he's had.

Will he ever win a 450 title? Who knows but time will tell. I wouldn't count him out for SX 2019.

C'mon man, are you serious? I think MM is a great rider but ET had him covered all year and he knew it. Did you notice his body language on the podium when he got his ass kicked at Washougal and Budds?

If it wasn't for the mechanical at Redbud, it wouldn't have been close. There really wasn't any drama. Did anyone really think ET was going to give up 20 points today? Just like last year. That's why I don't go to the Ironman anymore, even though I live less than 2 hours away. Very rarely any drama in either class.

Respect the racers. Eli won. Marvin didn’t give up.

Don’t hate. Just appreciate.
