Very hot take. Definitely worth starting a thread

Abysmal and embarrassing

Plessinger sure has screwed the pooch... horrible.

Europeans are faster! The tracks are tougher and it has led to more efficient and faster riding styles. Watch Herlings and Prado through the corners.

Ugghh!!!

Tell ya what , The team NDL Dutch guys are who is getting robbed here with what happened to Calvin.

And there goes Jeffro. One of God's own prototypes. A super high-powered mutant of some kind never even considered for mass production. Too weird to live, and too rare to die.

McGregor talked shit and got served a huge slice of humble pie, which I hope some guys on here can chow down on and realise USA doesn't have the fastest riders anymore.

The USA men are doing their best and I applaud them for that. No need to disrespect our finest. I can’t imagine the pressure.

For those who know multiple languages. Does each country talk bad about their country’s riders when there is an off day like the US is having today?

I’m impressed by the Europeans. We have a huge one country continent to pick riders from, where the Euros are selecting riders from countries the size of Texas.

Edit: added a question mark on the second paragraph.

Warning: I support propane and propane accessories, fossil burning two-cycle engines, U.S. beef industry and watching the best athletes in the world go to battle... Yup...

The thread I created has not been disrespectful in the least I’m calling them out for riding like garbage and I don’t feel like they’re even trying close to their best it’s a very uninspiring performance.... this could quite possibly be the worst ride we’ve had in all five years of losses .... 1. due to the fact that we are home so well on the track that these guys know like the back of their hand and 2 “. because we have such a solid team this is just so frustrating to watch

The team is US best but euros are faster

It is what it is.... they were favourites and have stunk it up, even Barcia blew it. Tomac has done ok so far, but Plessinger has been just awful. Everybody doesn't get a trophy here.

will anyone go next year? USA mxdn just may have gone out with a bang..
in the riders side, the others raced last week. just another race. our guys havent raced in 6 weeks and have a lot of pressure

|

10/7/2018 12:37 PM

C'mon guys, we are better than this. Our guys are out there representing our country with an immense amount of pressure and there's no need to pour salt on the wounds. We can win with class and lose with class.

|

10/7/2018 12:40 PM

Our guys are doing the best they can at the moment. They can do better then what we're seeing , but every team out there has to deal with weird shit , bike issues , goggle's , ect.....no excuse , we're just getting beat.

Been a long stretch of losing and on home soil with lots of hype and pre race posturing sure makes it easy to be harsh. Get what you are saying, but fans can't help but be pissed off and mad about it.

Monster cup is more important......

This makes it pretty obvious why the US riders do not race the GP’s. When you get waxed like this on your home turf it makes it apparent that the MX skills have shifted dramatically to the GP participants


Not sure if it makes much difference except to hardcore MX fans. In the US it seems to be all about SX...?

surely no tomac next year, he run out of it a few times, what do you think he will after this year beat by a 250

|

10/7/2018 12:46 PM

ET and Barcia did pretty good today. Not sure what happened to Barcia on the start but he came back pretty good.

What's wrong with plessinger though? I figured he could win a moto against the 450s in these conditions. Even took the lead in the MX2 race yesterday against all the guys that finished top 5 today on 250s...
If Barcia and Tomac go 1-2 now it will probably still not be enough to win because they have to score one of Plessingers 16th or 18th places

At this point we need Barcia & Tomac to come through in this last moto and hope for a podium - and maybe even win this thing.
Never give up on Team USA! smile It's racing and anything can happen...that's why they race.
It's not over until it's over. LOL

Start by eating some humble pie, and show respect where it’s deserved.

I totally understand the emotional investment we have in these riders and this race, especially this year being the home team, but let's not kick our guys while they are down. Its actually incredible to look back and see the past USA dominance because first turn crashes, bike breaks, big crashes, etc. happen A LOT and we somehow missed it those times. This weekend we didn't.

Agree 100%. The USA riders are just going to deep into the turns and trying to point and shoot. It's hard to curb one's instincts, I mean they spend 8 months a year focusing on SX. But when it comes to riding motocross there is nothing left to question that the MXGP riders are now at a higher level. American outdoors are all too similar now in terms of dirt, prep and terrain. Look at the differences between say Lommel and Czech Republic. Those MXGP guys are so much better at track adaptation.

It's ironic, because it was Supercross that gave the Americans a significant leg up on the Euros in the 1980s and 1990s, but now one could argue Supercross has caused American outdoors to become too "groomed and manicured"' and this has led to USA based riders becoming weaker at motocross.
