Who ya got based on what we have seen out of Jason, Chase and Eli? If I had to pick today I would have a hard time choosing 2 of the three.

Let's leave that out of it and just debate who you'd pick. Two weeks in I would take the hungry Sexton and then flip a coin between Jason and Eli.

Eli and Sexton

Yeah and Kawi refused to be on the same headset communication with the team and used the race to test the 2019 bike...hopefully if Jason goes they will be more of a team player than they were before....

Yep. Still best usa rider results that day. I would wait til. August before making any choices. And who wants to go, who is healthy. Etc. .

Jason and Chase.

|

6/8/2022 10:36 AM

I'd put Sexton on that Honda 250 that's been winning nationals, a la O'Mara '86. Then with Eli and Jason on their 450s just go out and collect that big trophy.

Bingo. If all are healthy and want to go.

At this point in time , how can you not put Anderson on the team ? He has won a MXON moto before , just won the last national and was running hot in SX … if any of those guys are on a roll it’s him . Any way you slice it , it’s going to be a good team 👍

Hunta has already been putting time in on a 450. That's a no brainer.

|

The older I get, the faster I was.

6/8/2022 11:30 AM

Anderson, Sexton and Craig on the 250 would be solid.

At the MXON , the 250 guy needs to be able to move up from the back of the pack . That’s Jett’s wheelhouse .

Anderson and Eli, then. Cooper on the 250. Love sexton and his speed, but would want someone that’s been there Before and doesn’t crash so much

|

Chuck Norris is the reason why Waldo is hiding.

6/8/2022 11:44 AM

Would be cool to see Anderson getting his revenge after what happened in 2016. But this is gonna be real close, Cooper is pretty much a safe pick for the 250, but 450.. What a strong team this is gonna be this year, damn.

|

6/8/2022 12:06 PM

Sexton Anderson JCoop

|

Don't ever let facts get in the way of a great story

6/8/2022 12:09 PM

I want guys that want to go and not convieint to them. So Eli can go kick rocks Anderson and Sexton and Cooper would be my picks.

Depends which Tomac shows up the rest of the year. The Tomac we saw moto 2 this past weekend would be picked for sure. Sexton has to be picked (as of right now) purely based off of his starts and current success. Anderson has to get his starts figured out. Other than that he’d be a good selection. Justin Cooper appears to be the only good option on 250s right now and he should get stronger as the year goes on. Maybe Mosiman will find a little more consistency and we’ll have another solid option.

|

6/8/2022 12:32 PM

I'd go with Tomac and Anderson..... I don't trust Sexton to not front flip at some point.

First time I have heard it put that way before

The team manager needs to sort this and I’m not sure with Roger’s position now it’s possible

I think you offer the 450 spots to Tomac and Anderson. Offer the 250 spot to Sexton on the factory Honda. Craig would get a chance at the 250 spot if Sexton/Honda declines.

They might play nicer if we had a new team manager.....

All these picks are great but I would just about bet my paycheck that regardless of results either Dungey or AP will be on the Team....Roger gonna Roger so Team Austria will be on Team USA if at all possible......

|

6/8/2022 1:20 PM

anderson, sexton, cooper if ready.

|

6/8/2022 1:29 PM

Throw Tomac on the YZ250F. Chase and Jason in MX1 and Open.

|

6/8/2022 1:37 PM

Too early yet. Will we see beast Eli emerge now that he has a bit of wind under his sails? Chase looks pretty dang good. Jason still has to prove, at least to me, that he can be a consistent top 3 guy to get a nod here, and I'm sure hoping he does-he is on the gas for sure. If Cooper can stay healthy and run the series and get his fitness back 100% he looks like the obvious choice for the 250. I would love to see Eli put the hurt on the field at the MXON as he winds up an amazing career.

Roger's not the problem...Kawi management is, and if they don't want to be part of the team and play by the rules then the hell with them...

2 sides to every story I suppose.

Hopefully for all our sake they play nice together this year so we can have the fastest team possible.
