Obvious Choice:
Ryan Dungey

Second Choice:
Ryan Villopoto

Wildcard:
Ryan Sipes

I'm particularly interested in your wildcard choices.

EDIT: Maybe a better version is: "Who could run upfront for the first 5 laps."

May 19th is 4 weeks away. Whoever is chosen will have to already have been riding and training for a minimum of 2 months as of today (April 19th) to get on the podium or close. RD and RV are probably the only two who could do it since it seems like they are both still in good shape and have been riding.

RD, RV and Townley are probably the only ones that would have a chance.

This^ Talent wise, lots of guys got it, but it's the investment of training/time that puts them on the box..

Carmichael might weigh twice what he did at his last race, but I'd bet a lot of money he'd run with the top guys.

With 3-4 weeks of training, RD would be the only one with a chance at all.

I second this. Plus for you guys saying Windham, you're nuts. He told DMXS that hes 225 and doesnt even think about riding at all right now so even though I like K-DUB just as much as the next guy it would be ugly.

Vital news is 100% true 30% of the time.

The biggest wildcard ever: James freaking Stewart.

Braaapin' aint easy.

4/19/2018 9:38 AM

Canard and Stewart

Never try to argue with idiots; they will only bring you down to their level.....and being more experienced, they will beat you at their own game!

Windham hasn't raced an outdoor National since the summer of 2011.

If this post was made back in January, which would give 4 months to prepare, there would be a lot more guys who 'could' do it. I think RC would be one of them.

No one.

That's like saying which one of us could start training now for a marathon in May and go sub 3-hours.

Some of you are seriously living in the past.

Dungey could llikely do it. The rest? Not so much.

DeCoster could for sure.

Maybe a better question is: "Who could run upfront for the first 5 laps before fading."
