Before the outdoor season starts just wondering who should be in running for Team USA? Is Roger up for the job? Do the riders who have manned up against the odds and participated it before or the ones who are hot at the end of the season? Reward for the guts or glory

Serious question, not sure if I missed it or forgot, but has Anderson won a 450 national O/A or Moto? I can’t remember honestly

He won two motos last year. One at Glen Helen and the other one at Muddy Creek.

Tomac
Baggett or Anderson. Whoever is having better season.
Osborne or JMart. Whoever is having the better season.

There's a few 250 guys who could make the push such as Forkner or Plessinger. Honestly, any combo of the listed guys will be a very tough team to beat on home turf.

The best team would be
Baggett
Tomac
Jmart
What I think might happen
Baggett
Anderson
Jmart
Roger might still be mad that tomac did'nt want to go last year but baggett tomac and Jmart would be hard to pass up

Most important was his win at the mxon. Beat JH straight up.

I dont care to see tomac represent the US.
Send Anderson, Bagget, and Osborne.

Plessinger could be a great pick for a 450 ride if too many guys are injured

I'm not reading a statement into your question but it does bring to mind how well he did on the 450 in his moto at MXdN last time. So I'd be willing to pick Anderson if he's riding well this summer over several other guys.

Anyway, the outdoor season (results / injuries) will undoubtedly change my mind, but I would say these guys are candidates:



Osbourne (He wants to be there bad and he's one of the best in the sport right now).
Baggett (The guy is an animal outdoors when he's on... If he can ride like he did last year, he's a good pick).
Anderson (He did great at his last MXdN showing, right up until he was landed on).
Barcia (Bam Bam kicks it up a notch at these races and so far he's having a decent year excluding the injury).
JMartin (The guy is great on both 250 and 450 and he's a 2 time 250 champ).
Tomac (He didn't want to do it last year, he'd be my last pick for that reason... Kick rocks guy).

That's six guys who are solid picks in my opinion. I don't want Tomac on the team (for spite), but I still root for the guy when he's racing.

LOL, Not tomac because he refused to entertain me last year .

You're right. You and Roger. Morons.

I'd almost like to see Tomac say no again, mainly because I think it's funny to see how mad a bunch of grown ass men get over a decision that has absolutely no effect on their life.

If you don't think they pick Tomac if he's not injured you need to stop drinking.

perhaps you've missed the last couple years?

I would like anderson to be able to redeem himself. Im still heartbroken over that...

5/8/2018 9:01 PM

Tomac Anderson Martin or if tomac doesn’t go Anderson Osborne Martin

He wasn’t picked or didn’t go?

A 350 is always the solution.

Oh I’m sure they’ll all flock and beg to race for Team USA now that it’s on their home soil and they’ll be huge favorites. I have zero respect for anyone who has bailed for non injury reasons the past few years and then wants to race this year.

450 riders: Tomac + Anderson or Baggett
250 rider: Anyone of Osborne, Plessinger or J Mart

Any team assembled out of any combination out of those guys will be unbelievably hard to beat, especially on home soil. I can see other Nations winning moto's. Roczen, Herlings, Cairoli, Musquin are all capable, but winning the nations overall will be very difficult.

I should hopefully be there and I can't wait for it. It's a track I've always wanted to go to

Starts are 50-60% of the race in MXoN due to the tough field.

So Tomac, Bagget/Anderson. Osborne i think no one will touch. Average 2sec per lap quicker outdoors, decent starts (same as Jmart). Did well in last MxoN and has the experience from MXoN and really wants to be there. Gona take an injury to stop Osborne from being selected.

Bagget/Anderson. If Bagget is not suffering from injury, or easily triggered injury again and starts are on point he is a candidate. I think he will have issues with his hand.

Anderson did well last time he was there, gets good starts and he wants to get a new chance and they are not going to deny him that. Only injury or a placement outside top 5 in outdoors will disqualify him.

Barcia i cant see unless he just dominates Anderson and Bagget, which he will not.

So my prediction is Tomac, Andersson and Osborne.

Tomac Bagget or Anderson and Zacho. Nobody can beat this team.

So it's De Coster's fault guys like Tomac, Anderson etc don't / didn't / can't race it huh? When USA won year after year I didn't hear complaints about him. I spot some double standards.
