The scrub was not invented recently, just taken to another level. Riders have been absorbing or sucking up lift on jumps since at least the 70’s

Oh, Hell NO!
That ain’t a scrub.
That’s a “Magoo”.

And like TLC sang...
A scrub is a guy that thinks he's fly
He's also known as a busta (Busta, busta)
Always talkin' about what he wants
And just sits on his broke ass

Did anyone-else...
Ever...
Win all their TdN -AND- MXdN races in the same year?
EVER?
Hmmmmmmmmm?

Nobody ever told me, I found out for myself. You've got to believe in foolish miracles. It's not how you play the game, it's if you win or lose. You can choose. Don't confuse. Win or lose. It's up to you!

It could be, but the I don't think this photo can prove it. To me, a scrub is defined by the takeoff. If the sidewalls of the tires are "scrubbing" the lip of the jump, then it's a scrub. However, the rider/bike can take off straight and produce a similar or even same aerial position.

Watch this in .25 playback to see what I mean:

This is the first scrub known to man

I saw Danny race many times and he was an amazing rider. But, I never saw him scrub a jump. He appears to be doing what was called a "turn down". Which for the most part is done after a rider leaves a jump. A scrub starts well before leaving the jump.

Not a scrub, it's a brush.

I think he is whipping to the left... or is that right? 🤷‍♂️

Don’t piss off the old people - the older they get the less “life in prison” is a deterrent for them!

It’s a scrub, but this is a Bubba Scrub. Notice the lack of air between the rider and ground. Photo

Not knowing where he is coming from and where he is going. Yep looks like goon riding to me.

That's the double-jump behind the starting gate at the 1982 or '83 High Point National, which was before David Bailey first turned it into a triple. He's not scrubbing, he's turning down, but still amazing what Magoo could do on a dirt bike!

Technically you are correct, he is a Goon and he is trying to ride but my definition of goon riding is a good rider trying to look like a squid, and this is DDs real style ,slow and low. cool

Tommy Benolkin way back. Looks scrubish to me.

Been going on since 1979 that I know of. They called it shaving speed or staying lower or similar.
The above old school pic is bad ass.

Accidental "scrub" followed by the dreaded dirt induced nap... I've done it countless times
