Simply speculation, I know...but after the smoke clears from the lawsuits he's reportedly involved in with his former team, and if he gets the help he apparently needs for his wrist...do you think Blake Baggett will return to professional racing?

I know he seems to be selling (or has already sold) his property/ranch/compound...so does that mean he needs the money, doesn't need the upkeep while he's "down" from his current situation, or does that mean he's over it all?

idk. He can walk away from mx tomorrow while holding his head high imho.

Outdoor champ and 450 SX main event winner. He might not get SX title but a lots of guys won't get that neither. There is life outside of moto for Blake if he wants to go that way.

I hope he's not done, especially Outdoors.

Motocross is better with El Chupacabra in it.

His wife posted on IG that she was "coming out of retirement with the gear carrying duties."

Whatever that means.

He was the 250 fmotp for a couple of years.... he made guys like tomac and roczen look like C riders at certain times..... Baggett can certainly hold his head high at retirement

Not sure of particulars...but from the vague information that was shared around here, Blake and his former team had a disagreement regarding them honoring his contract where pay is concerned, during the pandemic shut downs. Maybe someone else here could comment further...but he's been noticeably absent this season.

Wasn’t he rumored to be blood doping back in those days though?

Maybe a fill in for HRC this summer when KR94 sits out again.

WTF? Was there a rumor about you being a pedophile?....see how that works?

He really became a solid sx rider on the Suzuki, go back to RMArmy Baggett bro!

|

4/21/2021 1:15 PM

Would love to see him sending at the great outdoors! His late moto charges back in the 250 days where epic and one off the best thing I’ve ever seen.

If he retires, good for him. Got a amazing career and beat the worlds best straight up.

I definitely recall reading about how his repeated late race charges were raising some suspicions.. Don't ask where or by who because I can't remember. But I 100% read it somewhere.

Sports fans across the globe have been duped for decades, so I won't Blame you for keeping faith.

The above may be fact or fiction, I may be serious, I may be jesting. I am not sure, you have no chance.

If you watch her stories, the helmet she's carrying appears to be for their son and Blake was carrying the strider/stacyc and they were at a track. Just what I took away from it.

There was lots of suspicion about his second moto performances, remember everyone calling him “Mr. Second Moto”? A family member was a mechanic during that era and told me the rumors. Rumor was he also had a nurse with him and Aldon every weekend, which added to the blood doping suspicions

Rumors are going around that he will be racing outdoors only for BETA in 2022. Van Horebeek also said in interviews that the brand is really pushing towards the American market in 2022.

If he’s healthy, he can beat anyone. Grab the popcorn.

4/21/2021 8:03 PM

I hope so...

baggett on a 250 back in 2012 was probably the most entertaining thing in moto-x in the last 20 years for me. I enjoyed watching him slice apart the pack to making incredible comebacks. that was good racing and exciting to watch. miss those kind of rides. tomac's before he ripped his shoulders off were in same category.

|

4/21/2021 8:25 PM

I sure as hell hope so.
