1 Levi, 2 Wyatt Liebeck, 3 Deegan. At the pro nationals. Wyatt shot wide in a corner at the end of the last 125 all star race. Rode with pressure on him, got 2nd. He runs up front at the amateur nationals, but no titles. These are the riders that do well at the pro nationals.

See what he does on the 125 this year but generally if you can’t win mini cycle races than it’s hard to put too much stock in him

It’s going to be interesting to see how Haiden does. He’s been lucky enough to have the best equipment and training you could ask for, but that’s not always the right path.

It would be interesting to go back 5 years and 10 years to see who the amateur riders were that "ranked" as being the next future stars and see what they actual did. I'm guessing it's a mixed bag. A few became super stars, some never "made it", and there were other riders you'd not really heard of who became really good.

Anyone have any idea when these guys might make pro debuts? I'm not in the loop much on amateur racing but I've heard enough to be excited for more fresh racers in the 250 class.

I was stoked and a bit surprised Vohland made the jump this year, unfortunate what happened though with his injury. I'm all team green but I definitely was rooting for him.

I think Kitchen & Reynolds are the only two "names" moving up after Loretta's. I don't think Ryder D or Ferry have enough time on 250s yet, so they probably won't go pro until next year. Hopefully Deegan gets off the super mini soon, because I'd like to see if the charge he put in at Freestone (crash to first) will translate to a bigger bike/four stroke.

Not true..... Mike Alessi was mr Mini rider dominator........and then......

ferry's kid could just be getting warm man! Can't judge their whole life based on what they're doing in amatuers. Everyone thought alessi and millsapps were gonna be the dominaters to the likes of McGrath. They were very successful, but not GOATs. And they killed it on mini's for sure.

Dunge didn't kill it on Mini's.......and look at him....

Just a few names that come to mind when talking about top name guys that it didnt really work out for.

This is my thought on most ppl succeeding though. It will be easier for someone that doesnt have money to succeed when times are tough. Nothing against Deegan and he could be that small percentage that really accels regardless of his parents money but I think people with less money have more of a desire or just something about them that helps them push more.

Example, where are MJ's kids? They didnt materialize in basketball. Same can be said for many top athlete's kids. Dont want to single out MJ there but its a good example. Even if they wanted to pursue another sport or passion they would have every opportunity at their disposal. Maybe they became successful at things outside of sports but we certainly never heard about it.

I second this it does seem like people with less money have more of a desire. Just look at Cairoli

I'd like to see him put the pressure on Deegan when they both turn pro, I feel like he'll have a chip on his shoulder from all the times Deegan edged it out over him at the majority of the amateur races lately.

Unleaded tastes a little tangy. Supreme is kinda sour, and diesel tastes pretty good.

Forgot about Ferry, another fast Fl. Rider is Jack Chambers. There is a lot of really fast kids. I would pick Levi and Wyatt for the best finishes at the nationals. A rutted or sandy track , Wyatt is my pick. Watch Ironman 125, Sypes is a crafty racer. Ironman has a lot of ruts. Wyatt sees race line really good, rails the outside passing Sipes. sipes then turns it up and applies pressure. Ryan I think could qualify for a national and finish well yet. Wyatt is on a yzf 250 now, ClubMx .

Could be I'd like to think not, I'm not well versed in how Alessi was as a kid but Deegan definitely has a clear desire he wants to dominate everything he goes into, and has proved to dig deep when needed, however it is just the small bikes atm.

Alessi was very dominant at the amateur level. Practically winning everything he lined for. You don't win as much as he did without having the desire of being the best. Once they went pro, Villopoto just hit an extra gear and the rest is history.

Success at the amateur level doesn't really mean much to be honest. AC is another one that was very successful as an amateur, but that hasn't exactly translated to his pro career. He's had success at the pro level, no doubt, but he hasn't racked up a whole bunch of championships like a lot of people thought he was going to do. He's been at it since 2013 and has 1 pro title to his name.

He's still young at 24, so he has still plenty of time to win more championships.

I think the last dominant amateur riders that continued on that path once they turned pro were RC and James.

Who knows, maybe Deegan will one day be added to the list of greats in our sport. One thing is for sure, nothing is guaranteed. Will be interesting to watch.

I was thinking about it, when was the last time a successful amateur continued their path as a pro. I'd say Webb is the last one, of course sometimes kind of overshadowed by AC but he still won a bunch of titles as an amateur.
Really excited to see Kitchen. I think in one of the swapmoto videos he said he might do the nationals even before LL?

Kitchen might be moving up for the start of the nationals. Craig riding the 450 and Kitchen taking the vacant 250 spot would make sense.
