If he wins championship, he`ll be oldest champion in US MX history. So far it`s Mcgrath with title at 29 years old (I think). Osborne will be 31 in 20 days.

Yep, and i've been on the Osborne wagon since he came back from europe. all those years ago... he's a modern day junkyard dog!

Yea ol Zacho has paid his dues no doubt.

He's on the short list of Americans who was not scared to leave the comforts of home to go overseas and represent the United States on foreign land.

Any rider that does that whether it be on the Road Race circuit or Motocross and deals with all the many pitfalls of traveling to many countries and has to adapt to different languages and food, EXTREME weather, currency, travel and fans who might root AGAINST you (Lackey had fans hit him with sticks!) is way up on my respect list. 👍

I REALLY miss the days of getting the weekly Cycle News to see how our boys did each weekend. Where have the good times gone, I can only think of TWO American Roadracers doing it right now....sad

Watching Zach ride yesterday you can't help but notice how solid he is, there is nothing flashy or amazing that he does. Just being a great starter and hammering lap after lap mistake free.

He's a bring your hard hat and lunch pail to work type of guy and gets it done.

Tip of the visor to him. smile

I was actually wondering last night about this very topic. Anyone have any idea who the oldest Outdoor champ on record is? As far as Zach goes, I'm pulling for him, he's a fighter.

|

Zach is definitely steering the ship so far.

Any of you guy's remember when he used to post here? I think a lot of his posts were from when he was still in Europe , if I remember right.

And there goes Jeffro. One of God's own prototypes. A super high-powered mutant of some kind never even considered for mass production. Too weird to live, and too rare to die.

It is sad on the road race scene how shunned the Americans have become. Gerloff is still learning new tracks but is doing a good job and You gotta love Joe Roberts! who is still learning tracks too but has raced on more of them than Garrett granted ones in WSBK and one in Moto 2. too bad ben Spies walked away, He had alien potential, i think the politics ran him off. sorry to go off moto topiccool

Yup... love how he gives credit to The Lord!!
I hope he puts a stamp on the cship and clinches early so he can celebrate/enjoy a round or two with his team/family without the pressure!

Just finished watching the motos and Osborne was on rails. They got that bike dailed.

As ever, thank goodness for the fact that DC and MX Sports have not adopted the utterley cretinous 'age out' rule that Luongo The Drongo has in place.

It gave Zach the opportunity to continue his career in 250s, instead of going into the 450s and, perhaps, having an early end to his career. He was able to do things at his own pace, through US Motocross' sensible rules.

It's great to see what he's done back in the US. I hope he keeps it together, and gets another Championship. Between him and Troll ( and his brother) I'm perilously close to being a ''fan'' of both. Well, as close as a bloke in his 7th decade could be..........

What impresses me more is it will be his first premier class championship! I say that in a good way. Who says you can’t teach an older dog new tricks?

He’s a late bloomer who loos like he has aged slowly too. Wouldn’t be hard to mistake his age for early mid 20’s

Agree. Good to see him getting some props. He reminds me of the old school riders from the 80’s 90’s.. A no nonsense kind of guy who can grind & get wins. It’s the blue collar mentality with a never quit mind set, never make excuses or complain. I can relate..

I've said it before Zach Osborne is a damn American hero. That guy has more fire in his belly than any of the other guys for MXdN we need more just like him.

And just like everything in life, I never been a Zach fan due to the one thing he repeats up on the podium every time.

But regardless of that, he has certainly worked hard and his speed has developed.
He should "thank Aldon" for that!

No one can explain how 'we' are even here in existence.

There is something well beyond human understanding going on.

Zach is grateful for life and all the things he has been able to accomplish. His comments are totally appropriate.

If he wrapped it up early, he could run a TC250 for the last round!
On second thought, it's probably not homo'd.sad

Zach gonna win the title. I'm convinced.

No, walent215 brought it up.

Just because I am not a fan of Zack, doesent mean I'm a hater or don't appreciate the effort he has put in to get himself to the pointy end of the field.
It looks like this will be his year.

9/5/2020 4:13 PM

I met him when he raced over here, all the attributes of a decent human being with no sense of grandeur. He’s my perception of a true patriot of the USA and steps up to represent his country when given the opportunity. I hope the “ good things happen to good people” adage applies to him and he brings that title home and even if he doesn’t he’s still a special person.

When Zac arrived from Europe I quickly put him in the washed up basket, and I wasn't alone.
But with the Husky signing and Aldons structure who would have thought, or maybe becoming a family man changed his focus?
I can't see him retiring soon due to his age.

I'm not on the bandwagon just yet, but he sure made a statement yesterday. If he beats Eli in both motos again on Monday, that'll just about be it.

Sexton and Cianciarulo sure looked good late in the 2nd moto, too.
