Man, that sucks for all of them. I was really hoping Tim would be right there battling with JH and TC.

Let's just get this done and over with. Tim, come to the USA and race the outdoors please tongue

So this is shaping up not to good, and along with the sx , it might be a record year of outs.

Heal up guys

the funniest thing about this particular signature is that by the time you realise it doesn't say anything it's to late to stop reading it

Bummer so many riders get injured those days. But to be honest, Tixier Guillod Petrov and even Tonus wont be title or top 5 contender. That will not change much at the front off the MXGP Pack

Tonus looks like the Europe version off Josh Grant. Really Nice riding style and having some days the speed to beat everyone, but always and every year a injury and setback.

Gasjer is a really big bummer, really looking forward to see him battle for the title, but most likely he will be out off it.

You're probably right, but with the turnouts at the fly away races, almost half the field is out already tongue

Sorta like saying its okay to have a 8 person race, and if it were the 8 fastest it might be worth watching but thats never the case.
Losing 5 out of the top 20 before the season starr isnt good for the "spectacle" because even if the guy from 'your' country is 'only' an 18th place guy, you still follow and support him..
and that might apply to 3 or 4 riders from various countries

Then as it often happens a couple more get injured early on, theres a whole drop in peoples interest.....the rv case study a prime example..

see it as you like , at the end most people are interested in the title chase. Tim is one of the title chasers and can win Gp's , others can win a moto maybe ..true and everybody has their own "champ" youre right ...

but the first race in Quatar is always a weird race with a smaller starting grid as smaller teams opt out because of budget

in SX you have Roczen , Barcia and before Musquin and Tomac injured ... thats 4 out of the top 5 ... bit different in my opinion

the funniest thing about this particular signature is that by the time you realise it doesn't say anything it's to late to stop reading it

Has Tonus ever had one season/year without injury/illness ever? Geniune question.

in 2009 he missed a race ,2010 and 2011 he raced all races in MX2 .. 2012, 2013,2014 he didnt and got injured , so its been a while he raced a full season

Yep thats how i see it. Last year i was more interested in where lawrence was finishing than the title. Of course i still followed it.

Anyway i know what you mean and that the top tier are the draw cards to attend a race and to pay for tv, and promotion wise, people who ride here know ac222 jh94, etc. and their english is next to zero and they live in a bubble essentially..for lower placed guys theyd have no idea...nor care........but if one of their guys was competing and doing okay, like in the lower half, the interest would go off the scales.

As far as I remember he was injury free from his debut in 2009 until 2011. From then on he didn't have a year without injury.
He didn't miss Brazil 2009 because of an injury. That was the last race of the season and many guys didn't do it because it really made no sense.
