Anyone else catch that while Ralph and Ricky were talking before the gate dropped?

Anyone hear how it worked/if it worked?

I think it would be some hard to see let alone how awkward it would of felt.

I didn't hear if it worked but I was blown away by how surprised they were by it. Trey Canard did it in SX a few years back and then this year during outdoors a ton of guys did it even Ferrandis.

Definitely a good concept, take the second pair off right after the first lap chaos and you have good vision.

I personally have never heard of it before or even considered it being a possibility. I guess if it has been done in the past it’s not as interesting as I thoughtlaughing

Strategically, how many tear offs do you run on the second pair. Maybe 3-5? Just enough to get you through the first lap I would guess. Any more than that and you risk seriously limiting your vision assuming you use the maximum number on the first pair.

Two pairs of Just1 goggles = 1 pair of Airbrakes or Scotts

Ferrandis tossed these in the second turn at Unadilla. Creative using tape on the back for easy removal. Photo

I use oakley laminates and could stack 14 on there and have clear vision

I think the biggest issue is water behind the tear offs. No matter how many stacks of laminates, it still gets in! That's where the second pair helps lol

True. There was a significant amount of riders running roll offs probably for that exact reason.

Lol yeah that was really weird. I think there even has been interviews/segments about the double goggle setup the last couple of years.

I like how in the broadcast where RC was straight lying himself saying "ive never seen double goggles used in motocross, ever"

Race horse jockeys wear like 5 pairs over the top of one another, crazy shit, they have never heard of tear offs.

I'm pretty sure I saw Canard do it on TV one time, and they were talking about it.

Didn't he go down in the first corner with Webb? I'd imagine he'd have tossed them right then and there, not sure the idea is to ride with them, just get through the start and toss em.

Sometimes I come on here with my beer goggles to stir up some funlaughing

Yeah, and look how that worked out for him?

It's all just unicorn farts and fairy dust untill the gate drops. Those who are faster will always find a way to excel and get to the front regardless of whatever "tricks" people want to use...

Personally I would have gone with Screen Goggles...

I thought it was pretty standard now, not sure why they were so surprised by it... I’m pretty sure that one manufacturer... poss 100%... makes an over goggle, less foam etc for this purpose???

You can made a mudflap for your tear off goggle with sports tape. Like this:

It prevents water behind the lens and tear off's.
