I think we see a new guy next year

Yep he's coming. Got to remember he was beating all the guys on 250s so if he keeps it upright his talent is too high to not kick ass again.

Deano will be a top 5 guy next year with podiums indoors and out. Id like to see him get some wins but idk if thatll be in his cards just yet. Hes definitely had a very solid year, hoping his rise back to where he belongs continues.

Hopefully he's just been trying to have a healthy year and will be ready to push a bit more next year. He's so talented, but there were times where it looked like he wasn't willing to ride on the edge, and understandably so after his prior injuries. I hope he comes out swinging next year.

I'm a fan, but I don't think SX is his specialty. He's more of an outdoor guy.

He'll have a new look as well next year...

I assumed he'd probably end up with a different gear deal. Any word on what it will be?

I also remember reading back before A1 that if he did every race he would get $100,000 from Oneal so good for him if that's true, but he'll no doubt be getting more
next year.

Yeah, come on man. You don't have to stamp it or anything. What's the word you've heard about Deano's new look?

I thought it was iron man pitbits.. they said Wilson, was gonna be in fox head to toe for 2018, or that was the rumor at the time.
If I remember correctly that is, bumped the head a few times.. (too many)

Didn't used to be a fan of deano, but he put in a solid 17. He certainly has the talent to be a top 3 guy, hope he keeps improving, and stays healthy, for 18...

Bit of a shame he couldnt stay with oneal after they helped him when no one would. But money talks these days

There are two kinds of people against dirt bikes, those who never tried and those who weren't good at them.

That’s what I was thinking but at the same time he earned the money that shift is paying him which is likely quite a bit more than o’neal.

He was previously in shift and I think he got along with that family quite well

Dean is not going to be a top 3 guy ever in the 450 class. If Roczen comes back at or near where he was that means MM25, ET3 and KR94 will be the top 3. Then you have Baggett coming back healthy and better at SX with something to prove., Bogle getting stronger with Ricky's help, Tickle, Anderson training with Baker. Webb on a new Yamaha. Hell Osborne could probably beat him on the 250. People love Dean, he may be a great guy, but he isn't a consistent top three guy. I wish him well and hope he does great this season.

It will be interesting to see how they all go

MM25
-Will he be pushing as hard as he has been with Dungey not being at Baker's Factory? (fulltime)
-Is he burning out/getting old? He'll be 28 once the SX season starts. His time might be limited, not to mention he won his first world championship 9 years ago. He's been doing it for a while. Not to mention the thought of retirement might be hovering over his head.

ET3
-Will he be able to handle being "the man"/championship favourite.

KR94
-He's going to be doing a heap of catch up this season. If he works over the christmas break, that would be his only edge.
-But he's probably the most talented.

BB4
-Who knows. He's had a strong 2017.

JA21
-Who knows. He could be the best if he focussed on being fast and less "steezy". In saying that he has the best style and love watching him.

All these guys are animals and the favourites. But the dot points I've listed are serious factors.
Every year we go into the season with 10 guys who can potentially get the championship. We write off 7 of those guys in the first 5 rounds. And there's always someone getting in the top 3 mix that no one suspected. I will go out on a limb and say that your top 5 at the end of 2018 will be:
Tomac
Roczen
Baggett
Marv
Wilson

Expect 1 or 2 to get injured then you'll have either Seely, Bogle or Anderson to round out the top 5.

I’m puzzled by Dean. Honestly I see him being 4-9 rider next year. Hopefully he can pick his speed up a notch.
