Man, what a season we're in for after two races. The only thing I'm missing so far is a fast ginger dude by the name of Ryan Villopoto.

With what you've seen in terms of the current riders performance, where would you have played RV in contention? Do you think he'd be as dominant as past years in the 2016 field? Wish he was racing? Or happy with what we have already?

I wonder how Mcgrath would do if we threw him in the mix?

If everything were still the same as it was (trainers, team, etc.) I would have him as a slight favorite. Of course I would like to have him still in the mix. The more the merrier.

If RV hadn't retired he would still be dominating and Dungey would be a lock for 2nd

I think RV would be up front for sure. McGrath would be interesting

This Dungey is defintely better than the 'During-Villopoto-Era"-Dungey. I don't know if it was the lack of confidence or no Aldon, but Villopoto defintely had the upper hand. Nowadays I would rate current Dungey and prime Villopoto very closely.

Villopoto would be dominating.

Not so sure, those Ktm/Husky bikes are working!

Dunge would have him covered

|

Considering that he was never faltered or lost speed in his final season, he'd still be dominating. RV would not get slower while RD got faster. It'd be the two Ryans at the top as it has been.

Every time Aldon is brought up in a thread only about racing, the culprit should have to donate $5 to GuyB and vital. Can Aldon even start a motorcycle?

rickys james mc hannah 469...ama pro career wins...and counting
which means these riders have an average of 92 wins ea...
which is equal to over 3 years of winning every single sx and natl each...
15 years of absolute total 100% domination ...just sayin' ...

1/17/2016 12:41 PM

The RV that dominated called it a career. He did what he wanted to do racing and retired. His reasons are his alone. The whole 'if' thing is pointless and weak. I understand that you don't like the guy winning now but, the guy you prefer decided to quit. Pull for somebody else now. The end.

Mmmm, yea dungeys electric start haha

I don't think RV would have beat Dungey in 2015 with the way Dungey was riding.

while we are playing make believe in fantasy land, how would Bob Hannah do if hadn't retired a hundred years ago?

|

1/17/2016 1:02 PM

Really? Last time I saw RV racing he ended up on his arse

Probably not very good. I doubt his bike would pass homologation

You didn't at first. You edited it

While I agree with you, your first post didn't say that.

Edit: RG1 already said it

Why would I say it after you edited it? Anyway, it was a joke, relax

|

1/17/2016 1:20 PM

why ask why?

he is retired, so is MC, RC, RJ, Hannah, Bradshaw.... let it go

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

You can't be serious. RV dominates Dungey in SX for four years and now you think the year RV retires and Dungey reclaims the championship that Dungey would beat RV? Come on dude.

1/17/2016 1:24 PM

RV would certainly be in the mix if he was still competing and training as he was ...would he be dominating? No, I dont think so.

Sure he can....it's all speculation anyways....

Just like Roczen, Villopoto is a raw talented guy. I would say more talented than Dungey for sure. Would the 2013 Villopoto beat the 2016 Dungey on a 17 races supercross championship ? To soon to say as we haven't seen what this year's Dungey can do, but it would definitly be a close battle.

Dungey and that KTM have made a big step forward, with the consistency and speed that Dungey has displayed I think Dungey would have every chance on beating Villopoto, of course we'll never know
