I'm just glad to see 7 different guys competing at the front. If Malcolm gets it going throw another name up front.

It's possible Jett will win the championship, but his amount of near misses tells me he might not be able to continue pulling off his amazing saves for the whole season.  He's been avoiding some serious snake bites.

I don't want to see anybody get hurt but unfortunately for us and the other riders that's the only way he's not going to win this championship.  (Just for the record I don't like reading what I'm writing either, but its accurate)

If speed was the only component of winning a championship then JS7 would have a lot more in his name.  Have you not seen all of Jett's close calls?

Is that a fact ?! Lol, psychic are you ? You should probably play lotto or head to the casino huh.

That's why they race the races, good tracks or bad.

P.S. = the season's just getting started !!

Are them saves from luck, bike control, strength or technique?

Obviously from skill, strength, and technique, but also some luck.  Did you see his crash in SD practice?  Instead of acknowledging the fact he's had some close calls that he's been lucky to ride out of, some of you guys sure are setting yourselves up by choosing to ignore it

I'll throw a long shot out there with as back and forth the top 7 have been. I  actually would say the top 12 are still in it to win it. What 11 rounds left. 8-12 is Ferrandis, barcia, cooper, hunter and mookie. Mookie is only 50 back. Yeah its 2 races and thats alot. But everyone of those guys have the abilities to catch fire and click of a win here and there. Most importantly all 4 of those guys can catch fire and easily real off 2nd-5th from now until the end of the year and make up a ton of points if the top 7 keep these up and down result going. Hell i know people are baggin on barcia but end of last year, the little bit of outdoors and durning smx he was a shoe in for top 5 every round if he kept it on 2 wheels.

Man you're really lowering yourself lately, you're better than that, I'm starting to think you're actually Jett's biggest fan on here.

It's like you found your first highschool crush and you just can't get her out of your head.

Blows my mind that more people don’t push him out of the way like Webb eventually did. I get that he’s paid to race and no one can argue his skill but c’mon!!!

Webb had a few very close calls in 2019 and it worked out for him.

Definitely a wide open points race so far.  I’d say AP should have the points lead, but you have to close the deal…. And he didn’t.

I believe it’s advantage Jett, but not by much.

I like what you’re saying, makes a lot of sense. I guess that’s why they race, and not just give Jett the damn Championship because some say he’s sooooo much faster! Lol, people are funny.

Maybe not 25 but it would be much different.  Mudders made a big difference.

By now it’s usually down to 3 but As long as they keep shuffling around finishes and wins keeping the points battle close it will be a great battle to the almost end then toss in the 3 playoffs shuffles the points battle again.

"If it wasn't for the mudders"  lol...come on. Everyone had to race the same conditions. Jett is showing that he makes too many mistakes when he has to play catch up. How many times did he come up short last night? Any one of those could've ended his season. Also, it's not like he was catching Kenny....and Roczen was managing at that point. Perhaps Jett isn't very good at developing a bike either... 

You say that like everyone rides the exact same line. In a mudder, you can have 6 inch deep slop 6 inches over from the line the guy in front of you took. It's definitely a different can of worms than a dry track.

I agree he's had some nail biter close calls. But, each time that happens, it adds to his experience. Will he learn from it? His story would indicate yes. I've seen JS7 do some real rag doll shit that he just climbed back on the bike and kept racing. I think this is a real learning season for Jett, not too concerned.

I think it can be any of them, Anderson has been solid lately too, just a tick off the pace though.. I do feel Jett can get through the pack better than anyone else at the moment though.

Define "Jett can come thru the pack". He can't even win a dry race when he starts in 4th..

I think Roczen is actually being a bit underrated in this discussion. The old Kenny used to come out hot to open the season and would build a points lead, but would start to run out of steam around Daytona and health issues seemed to arise. His 2023 season went the exact opposite - he started off solid but not setting the world on fire as he was figuring out the bike & new team... but as the season progressed, he got stronger and was a podium guy/competing for wins at the end. 

If he's actually figured out how to avoid the mid-season burnout and can continue to build on the last couple of weeks, I can see him staying within 20 points of Jett/Chase/whomever will have the red plate. Take away his first-turn mishaps in the first few rounds and he's probably 2nd in points right now. He also straight-up walked away from the field in Glendale.

Everthing is correct. Until 2023 he had virus Epstein-Barr. The virus has no cure, but its impact can be reduced with medication.
