Not specific to Moto, but David Knight... When you start looking at what he accomplished offroad, no one today even comes close...

I don’t think he’d be considered off the radar in the off road world. I remember him winning the last man standing back in the day.

Stroup when he came out swinging.....he wound up being the fastest rider on the track. After all was said and done....i thought he flew under the radar a bit

Eggens on a yz125 in 99 I think it was. A duke video that covered all the rounds. How he attacked corners, going threw them and his sling shot on the exit. Was so unique and awesome.

I always like Billy, good guy.
Thought he'd be the man
I rode Cahuilla last week and Billy was out there spinning laps looking amazing. The quick moments I followed him while he was passing me he looked flawless on the bike. I was actually stoked to be getting passed by Billy.

Who's one of your favorite current or past pros that never got the RC, Dungey, Bubba, or Reed status? I'd probably pick Darryn Durham, even in his PC days he still had a good personality and wasn't a robot reading off sponsors during interviews. Plus, how can you beat the picture of him passing Rattray on a privateer bike while waving goodbye to him? Seems like he isn't as active anymore, but still like to watch The Viewing videos from a couple years ago, was nice to see content creators step out of the norm for a little bit.



I agree, what a natural on the bike. I weaseled my way into a pit crew position on the Grim blades team at the Pastranaland mini bike races in June and ended up hanging with Durham, Stank and Rookstool. We had a blast and Durham looked so smooth even on the 110. I had him picked for the win but he unfortunately took a pretty bad digger and hurt himself. Super mellow down to earth guy, Stank as well, what a cool talented guy. Rookie can ride a scoot pretty well too.
