This turn? Shit was so deep I took a pic and sent to my son saying WTF??? I should have caught a video of the turn before this on top the hill. He was absolutely railing it at the same speed as Justin Cooper and Vohland.

Hey Brent, are you wrenching for Rick? I tried to find you guys at Fox but couldnt locate. I talked to Rick a little bit through Instagram. Send me a DM on our IG @motoxxxofficial If you see this

Is it wrong, I have not replaced a clutch in 40 years, and seeing those clutch plates brought back that smell!🤣🤣🤣

Great job helping that young man out.👍

Oh God no, I suck as a mechanic.

If I was wrenching the bike would fall to pieces the first lap. Rick has his pro KTM mechanic Robert Fobbe in from Holland.

I'm just the team manager/errands bitch/ Van washer/ check writer...blink

Props to you Brent and also to Rick.
Thought you both did great- shows some guts swallowing fuel and still going out there- tough kid.

Rooting for your Team and super effort you have all put together for the last race and this next one .... top Ten I am hoping!

~Stuff like this really makes the races so cool and interesting to see a newcomer get in there and do well- go Rick!

Always was an excellent rider ...... at crashing usually

So cool Brent that your helping Rick out. I,m sure he knows english , but it’s fun to speak another’s language. Here is a few words - motorcycle motorfiets, that,s hot dat is heet, super fast super snel, map kaart, fuel brandstaf, pretty women mooie vrouwen. Lekker is a popular word basically means nice, cool or hot. Like a hot bike, chic or song. Nice dirt Lekker vuil.

Yeah, my wife and family have been getting Dutch lessons at dinner from Rick and Robert.

They teach me these Dutch words, and then I mangle them on purpose just to piss Rick off silly w00t

In all honesty these kids are great, so respectful, grateful for what they have, and hard working - they are like family now to us.

After this is over, it will be sad to see them go, but in the long run, hopefully Rick's performances will catch the eye of a USA team or OEM. He for sure has the speed.

He Looks stylish and fast. Someone posted a 100k of prise money east coast racing series on here. Rick should race them . Then Florida gold cup then mini o,s and the winter nationals in Florida. I think he would do very well in the sand.

Rick is practicing for the final time at Cahuilla creek today- no more track days after today. Off to Hangtown first thing Thursday.
Found this on racer x. According to DC, Rick will be in A qualifying this weekend.

How is Rick liking the USA? Is he staying here a while after hangtown? Hopefully he gets to experience a little of California and the surrounding area besides just the tracks

Good luck guys for Hangtown!!

How is Rick handling the bad air quality it’s 122 in Ontario Cal. Right now. He may want to get the cardio in inside Thursday. All depends if it bothers him. My sinuses blow up pretty bad.
