Is Jesseman or Bentley the most forgotten regional SX champ ever?

If Reed hadn’t come back to Kawi, many would forget he rode one in 2010.

I sometimes watch races from a few years ago and somehow I’ve completely forgotten Barcia rode a Suzuki until I see it.

McGrath on the KTM a lot of people forget.

Canard on the KTM I never remember.

Mcgrath on a KTM has an asterisk though, no? He raced it what, once? Otherwise if memory serves me correctly, he just did opening ceremonies for his farewell season on a KTM
