Who do we send? Tomac, Plessinger and cooper/RJ?

If Tomac isn’t allowed to go, Sexton?

It would be a shame if Plessinger wasn’t on the team at this point ! He’s got to go, IMO

RJ? God no. If he doesn't crash once per moto it's an achievement. Cooper by a mile

Plessinger, Hampshire and Justin Cooper. Back in our wiining years we put guys who raced 125s on 500s and 500 guys on 250s. If Jmart was remotely healthy he could have been considered. USA has the talent to win this year.

I wouldn’t want to put cooper or RJ on a 450 for this event. Plessinger isn’t gonna go if he’s switching teams. AC, Cooper and Craig maybe? Gonna be hard fielding a team this year. Def not the best team we could send but not a lot of 450 guys to send if everyone’s doing musical chairs this off season

Plessinger may have a team change also.

Will Kawi send AC? They didn’t even want to send ET.

AC said he is going to have surgery after the season, I’m guessing that would keep him out regardless. Maybe not, though.

Barcia, Craig, and J. Cooper… assuming he gets a start without taking out his teammates.

|

7/4/2021 4:39 PM

Barcia, Webb, Cooper

|

7/4/2021 4:47 PM

Cooper, Cooper and Plessinger or Barcia

Make sure you downvote!

Prediction:

Tomac & AP both go on Yamahas. Cooper for 250s.

Team USA wins.

|

7/4/2021 4:52 PM

Webb’s results haven’t been there yet but he’s a dog and I wouldn’t be shocked to see him competitive. Ain’t no way US wins this year though. We don’t have the top guys in either class on our own soil this year.

The real question is which of the Lawrence brothers is gonna step up to a 450 for it.

You like being wrong I guess.

Tomac will still technically be under Kawi control when the race happens. And with AP possibly going to KTM I don’t think he would go and risk injury

|

Plessinger, Sexton, and Cooper would be a solid team IMO. I doubt they’d get the W though

I thought this was discussed in another thread and it was decided that Roczen, Ferrandis and Jettson were gonna be the team.

AP- KTM, done deal. Tomac on a Yami 450 or JMart/Sexton on a 450 and JC on the 250.

Tomac can’t ride the star bike. He’s still under Kawi control until October 1

Tomac is switching teams, AC needs to get his nerves sorted and Webb is way off the pace. Im sure Martin will need something done to him this off season. AP, Sexton and Cooper would be a good team, a win not out of the question if the black cloud gets lifted. Would be about time, we had all the luck for years and now nothing goes are way.

Hampshire could be a wild card and Barcia would be a good reserve.

Barcia is not looking good at all on the Gas Gas.

I'm sure they would let him out early.

I thought it was gonna be at Sandy track for some reason, but he has finished 4th twice so far and has a shot for a podium this next race. But still he would be the best reserve unless Anderson comes back on form.

Plessinger, Cooper, and JA21 (assuming he is healthy by then)

The way the championships were scheduled back then it was common for guys to mix it up in different classes, those days are gone.
Nothing wrong with throwing a great 250 guy into the open class on his 250 though, if you need to. Might be a good option for the Aussie team.

At this stage for the US, I’d go AP, Sexton, Cooper.

|

7/4/2021 5:50 PM

Cooper, Sexton, Barcia/Plessinger

Barcia or Plessinger depending on who does better at Southwick. Mantova is a bit less sandy than Southwick but still sandy. And Barcia has done well previously at the desnations

Ok Sog Dog. You just reminded me why I will never buy a Kawi.
