I think we are in for some big changes this up coming silly season. Sounds like Ac will be moving to 450 on a kawi. I imagine savagty will be on a Honda. I'm curious if tomac and roczen stay where they are at. I also think marvin moves if he doesn't win the sx title. What are all your guys thoughts.

Marvin isn’t leaving Aldon which means he’s staying orange

Nothing would make me happier than Ken and AC on Honda together

AC stays at PC or goes to MEK with Eli.

Kenny and Seely re-up.

Joey replaces someone at JGR.

KTM doesnt change.

Let's see wins the sx title this year! That may sway riders one way or another.. but AC and Kroc on a team would be sick!

Adam stays down at PC, Joey stays on at the green claw team, and Seely goes to MCR on a SX only deal. JGR might not be around next year if they can't get a title sponsor.

No way Davalos keeps the PC ride. I wouldn’t be shocked to see AC stay on 250s unless he wins both SX and MX this year.

The only way Adam stays down is if he doesn't have a good 450 offer....and I think he's going to get that...

Savatgy will only stay with a multi year deal...If Kawi goes after Adam you'll see Joey on Yellow...

Davalos is done.

ET to Honda probably. No good reason to stay with Kawi. Needs a change. That opens the spot for AC on Kawi.

Seely out at Honda.

Some spots may change based on who wins the SX title. If MM does not win the title will KTM really want a 30 year old factory rider next year?

KR94 is still young. Someone will still pay him big money if Honda won't.

Next year is ET's last big contract. He will retire in 2-3.

I'm the first to say that it certainly seems like Eli needs a change of scenery, but I can't quite see who'd be keen to pick him up. Honda would rather have AC to team up with Kenny, as they're good friends; KTM has no room; Yamaha has no room; and Suzuki is a great big question mark that he would find no amusement in, I'm sure. Am I missing something, or does he stay put simply because there's no where else to go? I mean, except MXGP, of course, which would be EPIC.

Antonio Cairolli, ever heard of him?

3/28/2019 8:37 PM

Antonio Cairolli does not race SX

3/28/2019 8:39 PM

This is not a trhead about who races SX and who doesn't. It's about silly season. And he pointed that KTM wouldn't want a 30 y/o guy in their rooster, when their current top rider i de GPs is above that age

3/28/2019 8:43 PM

MM will be “demoted” to Husqvarna next year
Tomac to KTM
Seely our and Savatgy in at Honda
AC to MEK

Some of you people are fuckin high

3/28/2019 9:33 PM

Eli to GPs

|

3/28/2019 9:33 PM

Totally Guessing but my Gut is Saying that Eli wants a change, not that he us Doing Bad , i think he is doing fine and just has been nursing injuries, but because he hasn't resigned yet.
I Really think Marvin will Stay at KTM and with Alden.

Before random speculations, stick to the contractual facts. What are they?

From what I guess to know - that is pretty much nothing - my question marks:
KTMFact, Musquin?
Rk Mount, Bloss/Bogle?
HRC, Seely, even Roczen?
KawaFact, Savagy and Tomac?
YamFact, Pless and Barcia, do they have 2years deal?
HusqFact, Anderson contract? Osborne, I guess signed 2years deal?
Mo.Concept?
And huge question mark about JGR.

Tomac to KTM (along Webb) or comeback to Honda? IMO more chances that he stay Kawa.
I'm a huge Roczen fan, but each week, unfortunately, he seems a little bit less likely to be again a strong title contender. Pretty sure that he will not be ever again an "Alpha" (...). How he will manage that to agree on a new contract with a team.
Musquin stay? or to Rk Mount. or anything else ? For sure the last few SX races will be crutial (as first few MX races). At least he is on a good dynamic.

Which 250 are likely to join in?
Adam? Sure? KawaFact or HRC?
Who else? Not that much. Ferrandis? Where? Yami? Maybe Husq, it could be suit well to him?

You really thought about this. Some good points there though. I would love to see what Tomac is capable of if he went to KTM and trained with Aldon, probably be a boring season though.

It would be a crime if he never wins a sx championship though, like it is that Bradshaw never got one...

Funny thing about this thread is what people quote as a rumor from reading it on vital. Lol

Webb, Barcia, Anderson, Osborne, Plessinger, and Baggett are all under contract already with their respective 450 teams for 2020, these are well known. So Yamaha and Husky are already set for 2020.

As for JGR, from what I was told they will go racing in 2020 but things get questionable after that.

The following riders need to sign contracts:
Tomac (rumored options: Kawi or HRC)
Roczen (likely to re-up at HRC but under lower price)
Savatgy (rumored options: Kawi or JGR)
Cianciarulo (rumored options: Kawi or HRC)
Seely (could go to MCR with HRC support)
Reed (JGR or retire)
Hill (no clue)
Stewart (likely to re-up with MCR)
Musquin (likely to re-up with KTM)

Questionable:
Bloss (I think his deal at RM KTM is up)
Brayton (I was told there is an option for a second year but I’m not sure if it’s going to happen)

Any chance AC stays on 250's with PC?

Hey ML...There is a couple Kawi or HRCs in there...ET3 and AC. In your opinion, and the rumblings...who is the hotter commodity? e.g. which guy signing is going to dictate where the other goes? I would think Eli, just because he has proven he can win on the 450, but stranger shit has happened.

3/29/2019 9:26 AM

Could you imagine Brayton, Stewart, and Seely all on MCR Honda?!

Damn... that is a super strong "B level" team.
