Windham and Bradshaw. The Beast came so much closer, but to me Windham's natural talent was out of this world, even more so than Damon's.

DV was very, very close too. (SX)

Current rides-
1988 RM250

Windham 100%. He had to ride against RC, Stew, and Reed. Bradshaw a close second.

I would have loved to see what a young, (relatively) motivated 377 could have done straight off the PC bike on Factory Kawi or similar. His talent was in the .01% range.

Keith "bones" Bowen - Team Yamaha 84-86
He was the first rider to skim the tops of SX whoops instead of 2 or 3 at a time.

Agreed! DV wins this conversation easily.

Windham.

BTW, anyone remember the race where KW was giving Stew a fit for a few laps? I think Windham eventually went down trying to scrub, but it was a good battle up to that point.

Agreed. Watching him in person it looks like hes on a sunday trail ride, meanwhile hes the fastest on track. Unreal talent, vision, line choice, etc.

Yeah in the AMA it’s Bradshaw. Was a beast at 17 threw away a title in 92 and was never the same after Red Bud of 92. Still no one is close to Bradshaw.

Bradshaw and the DV,
Bradshaw would have won with out the LA riots, he would not have had hte knee injury if the LA SX had happened at the time it was ment to,

DV might have done it without the photo shoot crash,

I remember. I feel like it was Houston or New Orleans? He caught his foot scrubbin the triple and put er down after battlin in the heat race with Stew I believe.

Oh my bad I was thinking we were talking supercross

Bradshaw, Windham, DV, and Canard all come to mind. I honestly think Canard could have won the outdoor title in 2014 if Honda had allowed him to switch forks at the start of the series. Once he made the switch he could run with Dungey and Roczen and won a few motos.

It was Houston 2012 when KW ate shit going after JS7 in the heat race. His shoulder was messed up pretty good but he still tried to ride practice in Vegas.
