So with the ridiculous conjecture floating around here about Dungey returning and JS7 still being "not done", The interview TWMX did with RV2 got me thinking...He mentions that had he changed colours during his time actively racing it may have even lengthened his career...and with Cooper Webb's train all but derailed who thinks we see RV2 suit up and give the youngins' a hammerin'??

Mehhhh, from what I've heard it sounds like his relationship with Kawi wasn't the best before he jumped over to the Blu guys. Pretty sure I directly recall RV2 throwing Kawi under the bus re: lack of support for misc things in his post-career.

Pretty sure RV2 is loving life way, way more than he did when he was racing and racking up championships. I chalk the comments in this video as both a little jab-jab at the former employer and washing the balls of the his new employer

Yeah - definitely some jabs at Kawasaki which must mean Eli has got some seriously pissed off Kawasaki Execs breathing down his neck because he has crashed more times than I think they were used to with RV2.

With Tomac and Marv's troubles....you have to think it has crossed Dungeys mind. This would have been another championship year for him.

Funny how people throw Webb under the bus after two races.
Probably the same guys that said Tomac is a 4-8 place guy after A2 last season. Then he went and won 5 in a row

NO, NO, NO, NO, and then just a little more NO.cool

Vital is smoking something stronggggg lately. Dungey is not coming back I won’t even mention stew, and RV2 is not coming back. Now I don’t really have facts behind this because I haven’t spoken to them directly but it’s just common sense guys

And the same thing goes when RV2 retired. He could’ve won another who knows how many more championships I mean he already won 4 in a row before he let RD win

Maybe not if you expected him to win and beat Dungey/Tomac/Roczen in his rookie season.
I never understood why people had so high expectations on him. It's not like he dominated the 250 class like Roczen and Tomac did. Well he did dominate in 2015 in SX but not exactly against a strong field...

Especially because in Houston he was down in the first turn and broke his clutch lever. Still made it to 12th. Not a bad ride to me.

Sounds like RV is content with doing the hooligan flat track thing. More power to him.

Having seen it firsthand a few times, I'd suggest that retirement for the pros is lot like getting on the other side of a bad relationship.

There's a phase where they enjoy not racing. They can back off on the training, eat what they want, relax, and have fun with the family.

After a while I've seen a few get bored and miss it. That's the phase where they question, "Hey, was it really all that bad?" There they might actually toss around the idea of a comeback, even if it's just selected races. Windham considered that for a minute, before the team talked him out of it.

Do I see that for Dungey or RV? No. But that's just my opinion.

It's: "woulda, coulda, shoulda, hadda, oughta, kinda, sorta." Update

The only rider that needs to comeback is a fit RC, so he can show publicly how little intensity there is now, minus tomac and anderson, they are very intense, but none the less the sport is all about consistency and its a breed of aggression and consistency that really only charmichael and rv have had, that makes a hands down dominate champion

I think the whole field getting smoked by an old(but in shape) RC, would really light a fire under everyones asses

In racerx Destry Abbot said he went to Yamaha from Kawi for what seems like similar reasons as RV.. interesting...

I agree. For some they may consider it. I just think there’s no way RD and RV comeback. Yes it would be great if they did but I just don’t see it

No it wouldn't light a fire under anybody all they would do is go on and complain about their stupid bike setup and how it's off because they couldn't beat RC excuses these days are so retarded it makes me sick to my stomach to hear some of them
