Can someone give an update on his team? I haven't really followed but I know Jimmy had been hurt and the results are not what everyone hoped for. Is there a weekly video series for the team? Which riders are hurt?

I think one of the biggest problems the team is having is Suzuki's 250 is just slow compared to other bikes right now. Im interested too because I'm a Top Jimmy fan but results haven't looked to good and I don't know who's riding for the team besides him and Osby.

Cunninghams also riding for that team. I like jimmy and think its amazing that hes always been able to find funding and keep doing this for as long as he has. That said i dont see how much longer this can keep going on with how much money is probably being spent with no results pr 2 or 3 solid top 10 riders. If yosh does indeed take over as a 250 team i wonder who theyll sign and if jimmys team and mad racing will still be around. All i know is that besides when hewitts team was on suzukis and whem factory suzuki haf a 250 rider, whens the last time suzuki had a competitive 250 team.

The video below is the latest update. Don't write these guys off just yet. I'm sure the team and its sponsors are realistic enough that they're not going to be a podium threat but I don't see why any of these guys shouldn't be a top 10 regular if they get their stuff figured out.

Sewers bike is fast. But more can be done to GP bikes engines maybe a small change like Valve angle might be the key to unlock that RMZ motor.

I think it can be made to work better. Seewers motors are done by a dutch guy.

Yeah I just meant I think his bikes are probably better supported and setup than Jimmy's. Hes a smart guy and I get the impression he knows money is just as well spent getting them to more races than building top of the line race engines. In terms of results it probably doesn't make THAT much difference and you have to get to the races for any results.

EDIT: My thoughts... I don't know jack sh*t.

I was at Lakewood watching at the uphill double. Other brands were scrubbing while the suzukis cased the jump. Heck, even stank dog got over it better. That bike has got to be a 150.

I think Jimmy would be doing much better on a 450, after riding the 450 for so long I think he's finding it difficult to hang it out like it like you sort of have to do to be competitive in the 250 class. I know he's dealing with some injuries and that is probably making it that much more difficult.

Rarely do I side with "stock that bike is slow" to start with in the pro ranks but with a limited budget like I assume MSS Team may have. I have to believe the team and Merge Racing would have struggles going toe to toe in the HP category with most teams. Def. a challenge in my book...

Jim Lewis normally builds some really fast engines, not sure what the issues are but I doubt the bikes are that bad.

Sewers bike is a works bike, possibly a 2018 production bike?
Or not?

It would be a far cry from what top jimmy has access too.. maybe he should trade it in for that dudes 167cc...

That was probably because they didn't prepare for the altitude....
