per DC on FB-

"Team USA has been picked, and now so has Puerto Rico: Luis Grana in the MX1 Class, Zach Osborne in MX2, and Jimmy Albertson in MX3. That's two Americans on the U.S. territory's team (and yes, it's legal for the MXoN)"

I have never heard Luis Grana and I usually keep track of the local (PR) riders. Might have to do some research on this kid. Hope he can hold his own.

There is a good chance that their MX2 rider finishes in front of Team USA's MX2 rider!
Zach is pretty fast on the St.Jean track!

The MXdN isn't supposed to be just a 3-man team race; it's a race where you go to represent your country.

Pretty sure Albertson and Osborne are not Puerto Rican and I'd be willing to bet that they've never even been there.

It's a joke that they're allowed to do such a thing and it takes away from the credibility of the event.

If you want to race at the MXdN, earn a ride for YOUR country. Don't finagle your way in on a technicality.

I think that this is ilegal because Puerto Rico is not a Country, is a commonwealth state of U.S, i think is a joke!

i have to agree. its a loop hole that doesnt make a bit of sense at all. if its part of the US, then why are we sending 5 guys over? we already picked our 3 riders. why does the US get 2 teams?

did they even make the mains last year?

Seems to me that being from Puerto Rico has little to do with being on the Puerto Rican team. Shocked

I have no idea, but would there be enough funding for them to have a true 3 man team?

I think calling it a USA "B" team is a huge over-statement. If USA had a "B" team, the team would be different.

Maybe you dickwads should petition a rule change rather than bitch about PR working within the rules and rounding up some serious talent.

Tough would be challenging you to a fight. Citing you as a dickwad is purely an observation.

I don't know about you guys, but I'm rooting for the Costa Rican team of Josh Coppins, Evgeny Mikhaylov and Akira Narita.
