He's a bit of an enigma. Great talent!

Nope but who knows for 2021

I’m going to say no but I have no inside info. He just doesn’t strike me as someone who would be willing to put in the effort to do the privateer thing. I’ll be happy to be proven wrong, though.

No.

If he doesn’t take one of the things he is working on, he will be the first phone call as soon as someone gets hurt for a replacement ride. There is no one else available with his credentials.

I saw a post from him showing that he is Riding the post said staying ready I think it was on Instagram, My guess would be waiting for a fill in ride. I don't picture him going at it as privateer.

Um, Baggett.

If he wasn’t motivated to train/ride on a team, I doubt he will be off of one.

If I was filling a roster I’d take Alex Martin over Justin Hill. Yes, Justin has a championship and flashes of speed but I think Alex would be more consistent and easier to work with.

I think the Mav's right. Baggett would probably be first up if he doesn't get something else going soon.

I don’t see him going back to a Suzuki which eliminates HEP. Very little talk about the team Amart is on, but I would think that would be a realistic solution if they are doing a 450 effort.

What about ML512’s team? Keeps him on a Honda and a great way for team exposure until a fill in ride comes available which we know will. FXR “backed” though so maybe this wouldn’t be possible?

All this is just speculation. I’m sure ML will shut this down pretty quick if I’m completely off my rocker here (laughs).

I thought the Amart team thing isn't happening anymore? I thought that is what Steve and Weege said on PulpMX this week.

I'll take who the hell knows for $500 Alex.

News to me. I never listened to the podcast though. His post is still up on IG as well.

I would bet on him riding the couch in 2021, but possibly picking up a fill-in ride once the injuries begin.

|

11/20/2020 4:43 PM

...depends on how many zeros are in his bank account...

|

11/20/2020 4:59 PM

He doesn't have the heart for that.....kind of like when Hansen tried it. Deano on the other hand? Chiz? Albertson a few years ago? Reed? even Mookie? They had the heart for that to prove what they were capable of.

He could barely find the motivation to race as a factory rider with a nice salary. I’m shaking my Magic 8 Ball as we speak and it’s telling me “Outlook not so good”.

I thought he was going on tour with his Pearl Jam cover band! Like him or not, hopefully he ends up on the track...at the very least, he is 1 more guy that can mix it up in the top 10 and add some more entertainment to the series.

Alex has a 250 ride with the Manluk Rock River Yamaha Merge Racing team. That's still a go.

Where to place him. Top 5 or 10.

I say about the same as this year. I don't think he'll be worse.
