Anyone got the scoop on the JGR team for outdoors?

450 -
Peick is in. i think he will continue to ride well and get some top 5's.
Bogle - is he ready to race??
Mookie - is he staying?

250
Hill - good to go or is he moving to 450?
Peters - out - getting surgery after SX
Decotis - not sure of his health
Phil - is he healthy and ready to ride?

And is the an amateur JGR team?

Any news would be great.

I think they will have only two 250 riders, Hill and Decotis.

But Decotis is hurt, so they might have a Phil in rider....

They need to get Phil on an outdoor bike!

There are open spots at Factory KTM and Yamaha also. If I was JGR I would make sure Mookie stays.

I'm pretty sure Hill is SX only. I could be (probably am) wrong.

I'm not sure either, but looking at hills instagram he was testing outdoors this weekend.

So far, it looks like anyone except Phil. Can’t wait to hear the story behind this...

I thought the Phil-in was Phul-time factory already unsure

Definitely not SX only. That, along with the 450 spot for 2019 was a big reason for leaving PC. They wanted him SX only.

With outdoors coming up, Phil is the best guy for any factory job hands down. His phone should be blowing up from these guys wanting a bike up front.

That is so weird.

Phil has been with those guys for years and he is a top 10 450 outdoor rider and they wanted to put Decotis on the 250. No offence but Decotis is nowhere near Phils level on a MX track.

Well i'm sure Phil gets something, he has to be the first guy a team calls for a 450 outdoor fill-in ride.

Phil on Tickle's KTM makes a lot of sense.

Why wouldn't they keep Phil? That would be stupid of them.

On the DMXS podcast with DeCoster it didn't sound like they were going to fill Tickle's spot.

Maybe someone can call PULP on tonight's show and ask. Seems strange, there must be a good story behind it.

They discussed this on the Pulp Foxborough SX review pod that came out this morning... Weege said it sounds pretty certain that JGR is bringing up an amateur rider and having him on the line for Hangtown 250 class instead of the kid doing another year at Lorettas... not sure who it is though..

Bogle will not be ready to race Hangtown, neither will Jimmy D or Peters..

Sounds like the 450 ride will either be Mookie or Phil. My money is on Phil...
