Since the USA has won more MXdN titles than any other country, I would say there are lots of riders who saved us from humiliation. I didn’t click on the bait, so I’m not sure of the point you are trying to make here.
On his worst day, I bet Tomac can hang a lot closer to Herlings on the gnarliest sand track in Belgium than Herlings could hang to Eli on a Supercross track.
I started watching it ,I was very impressed he could still narrate with Jeff's nuts in his mouth.
That was a long time ago... And so was this. But it happened. How about we hope some day we get to see the 2 series race together for a couple rounds instead of just hanging your hat on single races???
I agree,2 nationals on european soil,how about this?
Funny how people forget Webb & Forkner smoking the Bullet at the MX2 USGP in NC.
Also Anderson beat him at des nations
He posted this a few months ago.
That guys videos are extremely well made and you can tell he puts a lot of time and effort into them, but saying he is biased would be an understatement. Cool video though, thanks for sharing.
"Added to the lexicon"
Why does this guy hate Americans so much, calls us delusional and alcohol poisoned fans. Says Tomacs 2nd place single handedly rescued the fast drowning reputation of american motocross...WTF?
Also saying Herlings showing up to the line with an enduro tank so he doesn't run out of gas was intimidating to the other racers?
Might as well put a couple races on the moon.
It was canards bike with a regular tank.
Pretty sick video to be fair some serious effort has gone in to that , what herlings done that year as a rookie was insane and he was better than anything the US had to offer at that point , swings and roundabouts when Ricky and bubba where about the tables were turned but currently it is what it is he’s the fastest man out there
The video is well done but in my opinion, insulting to the talents of both Herlings and Tomac, who have nothing but respect for each other and their respective series. Herlings is an animal outdoors and he's proved it time and time again. The American fans love him and want him to come to America to race! He's amazing!
I think the part that bothered me the most though, was trashing on Mike Alessi who is a guy who loves riding a dirt bike. The author of this video was even dishonest and implicated Mike in the laser pointing incident, when Mike Alessi had nothing to do with it.
I would love to see more from this guy, but he should do better with is his facts than what he's done here (speaking specifically about Mike Alessis) since there is no need to bring garbage insinuations into the discussion which are untrue.
Smoking?! Nothing like adding a bit of sauce to make yourself feel better haha
Herlings won the first race which got him his title.. then came 3rd in the second moto 5 seconds behind Webb who won!
American National tracks are smooth and manicured compared to the Euro MXGP tracks.... Herlings mopped up the entire field 6-7 years ago on a track he had not ridden with only his suspension components on the Ktm bike.
If JH84 came to the US again, he would embarrass the field again (in mx) (not fair to compare to sx)
You’re delusional if you think he’d walk all over Chase right now on a US national track. I’m sure Herlings would have a podium shot, but there’s no way he’s going to dominate Chase, or even Jett for that matter. I’m a Herlings fan btw. Just realistic as well.
I don't think current Herlings is strolling past current Sexton / potentially Jett on a good day or if he continues progressing how he has been.
As someone outside America, I get it's natural to compare, but I'm a little tired of the 'us Vs them' mentality. Both series have bad dudes, and the AMA series has bad dudes from all over.
The US has given us some outstanding, awe inspiring riders, and the rest of the world has done the same.
*edit, right there with you MX Guy 👍
Sexton isn’t winning anything outdoors against Herlings anywhere. Period
I'm still waiting for Jeffy the domestic violence abuser to line up for a Supercross night show.... which he probably wouldn't qualify for.
That's like a cross country runner signing up to race hurdles 🤷
I just got done watching this. What a Fucking condescending tone the entire time towards Americans. This dude has Herlings’ metaphorical penis so far down his throat, I’m actually surprised he was able to do the voice over. Very impressive.
Don’t you get tired of adding absolutely nothing worthwhile to any given conversation?
Do some research buddy.
Awesome video! I enjoyed it
Herlings had his tickets booked for Pala. But wasn’t allowed in the end by Ktm. He has to focus on MXGP, which is an understanding. He now races a small 1 vs. 1 race in Holland, what might even be more of a risk than racing in the US.!
Anyway, the videos this guy makes are really cool and interesting. The video is indeed in Jeffrey’s favor, but lets be honest, coming over to Ironman and going 1-1 after crashing in the 2nd Moto, is damn impressive and something to make a video about. I bet if an American does the same in Europe this guy would make a video of it aswell.
Did you miss his interview where he said he cdnt keep sexton,tomacs pace last year outdoors? Ac222 figured out the pace last year. And no the excuse retiring,older. Etc. Doesnt work . He came over to race to win,not ride around.
Jeffy would never line up for a Supercross night show, he would be in the hospital before the daytime program was over.
