Update- 6am Friday, and it has been pouring rain most of the night here at Hangtown, we had a bolt of lightning strike about 300 feet from our motorhome.

Track looked great before the rain, but if it gets muddy Rick lives for this condition.

I gotta say. It's a bummer how this story hasn't been covered better by US media, almost a bit embarrassing for the media people to be honest.

Anyways, Hangtown can't come soon enough. Lets hope Rick gets to put in two solid motos!

Yup.. really weird since the US media typically is all about privateers but when a kid from a small country on the other side of the world comes over, funded by a very, very generous fan it’s radio silence. 😕

I have to say to, there’s even almost zero attention from Dutch MX-media.

Yup I've gotta throw my hat in on that too... not even a quick mention on the broadcast, disappointing at the least.

Weege did a cool privateer edition of the Weege show at Pala. Hopefully he does it again and gets Rick in there.

Yeah man that'd be sweet, this seriously deserves some light shed on it, Rick's a badass but Brent and anyone else who've done anything to contribute to this effort of theirs are the heart and soul of racing,

So we did. Mayson from “A little help in Sacramento” and Brent. Had a great chat and told Brent he should let Vital chip in like you did with Mayson. It’s not charity it’s participation for Photo the greater good.

Could b the same storm as thurs n of San Bernardino it started raining. Then at i40 aprox 80 mi from needles 80 mph winds with strong rain, hail. Just b4 the storm to my rt was sunny and 2 very long lightning bolts hit the ground, to my left it looked like rain was coming. I hope nothing like that happens at the race Saturday. Good Luck on race day.

Best of luck Brent, amazing effort on your part. I’m sure Rick is fired up for tomorrow! Let’s give’em hell boys 👍👍

He's a relatively unknown kid from the emx series and he's not being brought over under a big team. At first glance people just assumed the north euro kid melted under the heat and can't hang per usual.
