Does this guy rock, or what?!?!

After two races he's already got a 28 point lead in the series!

Big test this weekend as the series moves back east. Will Pastrana finally wake up? Will Brown have a better weekend? Will the 250F's not blow up?

It's going to be a great series......GO GRANT!!!!

4 out of the top 7 - 125 riders at Hangtown were on KTM's. Do you think that bike is fast?:think Sure, they are all great riders, but I think the bike is beyond proven!

I saw Langston at Hangtown. A very impressive performance. Bonds was pretty darn impressive, too. Bonds was serously challenging Langston when the two tangled off of a downhill tabletop and Bonds went down hard. The KTM seems fully competitive with him on board. It was also interesting to see Fonseca's 250F and his chances disappear into a cloud of blue smoke. The Honda 450F seemed competitive but suffered two stalls that relegated it to the back of the pack. LaRocco put in a consistent and very solid performance: he really makes us old guys feel good.

Grant Langstrom is cuuuttee. :confused:

Seriously, I do like watching him ride. In addition to my weakness for orange bikes, I like watching the young guys who make it look so easy and fun when I struggle just to get my bike unloaded.

The red bull jerseys are virtually imposible to get... I talked to Grants mechanic and was told that due to an agreement with red bull (something about their logo rights) That it is about as easy to get a ride on the space shuttle as to get one of the team jerseys... BUMMER:p

The one thing I hope KTM does with Langston is not rush him. This kid has the potential to be the one to put KTM over the top and fully into the mainstream. He looks like a potential champ and a quick learner to the american racing scene. Lets hope KTM doesn't get anxious and try to push Grant up to the big leauges before he is ready and burn him out, like what has happened in the past, with Bradshaw for example.

Langston is not just a potential champion - he is the world 125 champion. I'd say he is ready for the big leagues!:D

The trick is keeping him....

Instead of worring about KTM rushing him you need to worry more about KTM keeping him. If he dominates the outdoors this year (and he is well on his way) he is histroy next year as a rider for KTM.
