They charged head first into the fire this year and deserve a parade for their effort. Thank you boys!

“The guys did awesome. Yeah, shit happens in a race but the commitment this team put in this year, racing in conditions completely alien to US riders, these guys did great. Cooper waxed everyone in his qualifying race, pulling a holeshot while lined up in the parking lot and both JA and ZO were great working their way through the field. These guys are super competitive so I'm sure they're bummed about the bad luck the team had, but I'm fucking proud of our guys this year.” – Fourth Floor

“Yes, thank you to Zach, Jason and Justin. Appreciate your effort and selflessness in making it a long season to represent our country !!!! You may feel like you let us down after today and all 3 of you expect more from yourselves but you are all heroes in my book” – Bob_Ryan

Agreed. Love the effort, and sorry to see Jason and Justin tangle in that first moto. Sh....tuff happens.

They put their hearts in it, no shame in the results.

"It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat.”

Massive props to Team USA.

It was great to see the journey and it's a bummer it didn't work out!

It wasn't for a lack of effort and they deserve massive respect for stepping up at an unappetising Assen!

Thanks for the effort guys!!!

Great post, JustMX, was thinking the same thing. Proud of our boys, and I’ve never been a JA fan, but he brought me over to his club with this effort. Much respect to all 3, thank you Jason, Zach and Justin!

Thanks for stepping up and going, Jason, Justin, Zach. Great effort!

I have so many down votes my down votes have their own down votes.

Regardless of the circumstances, I hope they all had the time of their life!

9/29/2019 8:11 AM

Great team, gave their all and didn't give up despite everything. Couldn't ask for more.

I no longer regret my username.

I hope they hit it in Amsterdam before coming home if they haven’t!

This!

Can't fault their application and individual performances on an incredibly tough and unfamiliar surface. They'll be one of the favourites again next year no doubt.

Thank you guys. Glad to have you representing USA. Appreciate all your efforts.

I'm goin' off the rails on a crazy train

9/29/2019 8:19 AM

Really disappointed in Zach's performance. Obviously props to him for representing the USA and giving it everything he had but I'm shocked at how poorly he did

Perfectly fitting. It's not from a lack of effort, passion or talent. Unfortunate events happen. A podium was definitely attainable. In adverse track conditions the Euros outperform the AMA riders for now. WE WILL PREVAIL. Thank you, Zack Osborne, Jason Anderson and Justin Cooper .

Agreed. Great effort, dedication and heart. Thank you!!!

I'll add another fitting quote from Teddy Roosevelt that I think fit well here.

"Go fuck yourself"

I'm sure he's said that at some point in his life.

If you don’t think he gave it everything he had then you haven’t been following this sport for very long. Zach-O’s got a lion heart.

Because the teams best moto finish was disappointing?

I'm sure if it wasn't for the flood they would have gotten a podium, but the effort they put in, I'm sure there is a fire burning in each of them to go back again and show what they are capable of.

Embracing the event and inviting the fans into their preparations with the video series they made was unbelievably cool to see. Couldn't ask for more effort.

|

9/29/2019 8:29 AM

I have never been a fan of the Des Nations until last year when I went to Red Bud. Saw how the fans were fanatic for there country. I get tired of riders not wanting to go or teams not wanting to put effort into it. But to see 3 riders like this year that took interest in and prepared for it was very cool. Thank you Anderson, Cooper, Osborne for putting time and effort into something for free.

9/29/2019 8:31 AM

Proud of these 3 Americans for the effort they gave for their country. Thank You Zack, Jason and Justin. Come SX and MX season, I now have 3 racers I'll be cheering for weekly.

Yes, thank you to Zach, Jason and Justin. Appreciate your effort and selflessness in making it a long season to represent our country !!!! You may feel like you let us down after today and all 3 of you expect more from yourselves but you are all heroes in my book

9/29/2019 8:35 AM

They did pretty good. Nobody expected them to beat the Netherlands in the sand anyway.
Cooper went 27-25 with a supposedly broken arm. They would have needed one 15th from him to land on the box

Here here! Easily a good pick for next year. Thanks for the effort and great showing fellas, every American fan should be proud.
