Sounds obvious I know! The pace at this weekends Triple Crown was intense - mix that in with SX Obstacles (and real whoops) and I feel that this the most challenging form of Motorsport - again, obvious to some .

I have read a ton of back and forth between the MXGP faithful and the AMA faithful as to who the "fastest" rider is.

I have to say this as unbiased as I can manage. Given what I saw at Detroit I have a hard time thinking that the best MXGP rider on the circuit currently would even finish top -ten...and I am being generous. To even qualify for a 450 main might be a stretch.

Lets be fair Kenny and Marvin have been long acclimated to the US scene (cant really call them MXGP riders anymore) - and maybe we should give Covington and Lawrence a mulligan?

Your thoughts via a simple poll.

p.s. feel free to make your digs at me all you will. Its what Vital is all about.

How does Cairoli, Febvre, Gasjer, Herlings etc. do at a Triple Crown event?

If they had from the time till they were 16 to 24 to practice sx like we do, they would probably be contenders for wins and titles.

As-is, they would need 2 years to get a foothold. And thats assuming they can pick it up. Ferrandis is still struggling with consistency and covington is barely making it.

the funniest thing about this particular signature is that by the time you realise it doesn't say anything it's to late to stop reading it
