Maybe I missed it. I know he didn't do too well, but no thread about it? I haven't even seen an interview

For a dude that hasn't raced SX professionally since 2014, I think he did well enough.

I’m impressed he lined up. Physical fitness is such a major factor at this point, and he’s deservedly off the horse. Can still ride a dirt bike real well though.

Especially on a bike he has never raced. I mean how many races has Yamaha won in the 450 class in the last 4 years anyways?

I'd say he did a great job, it's good to see him still in the industry enjoying it.

He looks familiar, but he seems totally different.

Done some cool things lately. Go Dung, braap

For a guy using Coors Light to re-hydrate (or whatever he drinks) I'd say he did spectacular.

Riding for the fun of it and it shows. That’s why we do this right?

The hell with RV! There is a thread running right now with a dude that has a fetish with cleaning gear that's about to explode. RV will have to wait.

According to Matthes, RV was complaining about lack of power on the high-speed track. (His engine was basically stock). Makes sense, he still looked really good on the bike.

It's a shame he had bad starts. I'd of love to see him up front.

I would have never opened that thread if not for your post. If he ain't trolling he's the fucking weirdest dude on Vital by a long shot.

Thats kind of how I feel, but then again that guy in 2014 was at the very top of the sport, with 4 straight championships. I didn't expect him to win, but thought he would still be higher up. He still seems to be in good shape compared to others who have retired.

Chock me up as another victim of curiosity...agree 100%. WTF...

Personally, I'm super stoked when these guys come out and race just for fun and are realistic
about it. (Like KW and Travis at MXdN) Particularly with RV who was so over it even before he retired.
Awesome!

Anybody check out RV's latest insta response post to Jordan Smiths interview with Matthes.

Geez he didnt miss him with that one hahaha. Quality banter.

|

10/16/2018 8:21 PM

At least he didn’t have too big of an ego to not line up after 4 years without a professional race. Very very few riders who were even half as dominant as he was would have ever done that.

He beat Webb.

Oops. he was beating him before the last moto.

10/16/2018 9:24 PM

Dunno. He went out on top. His reputation is one of the baddest dudes in the sport. Now he’s fooling around and getting out of the top ten. Smart ? Well that’s just a matter of opinion.

He's not as worried about his reputation as you are,he's having fun racing his dirt bike.

He is living life, not just existing....and he is having a heap of fun along the way.
I would say he is smarter than most!
And going by all of that, I would say he is still winning!!!

Your response suckered me in. I was trying to avoid clicking on it. OMG! I think I am ready for a few more pages of MXoN whining and "Let Eli Bye" threads.

Jeez, some of you guys need to tighten up. I'm not saying he didn't do well enough, I'm just surprised to not see anything on vital, that's all. But I agree with the poster who said it took big balls to line up, no doubt! I wasn't a huge fan during his racing days, but I'm a fan now after seeing his relaxed personality.

I'm guessing his four year doping suspension is up???

Come on, bro! There's some quality material in there! Especially if you're into sniffing boots.

I don't think anyone was arguing whether he was GOOD ENOUGH for you bro. I mean, vital blows up for a guy who wants to clean boots for free, and nothing on RV racing again? christ

I heard this......Lack of power on a 2018 YZ450 with a hi-comp pc piston a pipe and ignition??????

A bike that is already heads and shoulders above the rest in terms of power?

Im sorry that just not an acceptable excuse.....

I bet if we were to ride the bikes back to back, we might understand.

At their level it makes a big difference.
