I've heard the "career 125 rider" comment flying around here but I don't really know what that means. Did he race nothing but 125s overseas? I don't know what his history is and I pay no attention to the MX anywhere else in the world.
The first time I ever heard of the guy was when I went to the Indy Supercross race (this year) and he was in the lead for a few laps and my son and I said "wow who is this guy?". He's ahead of (veteran 250 rider) Larry Ward in the points I'm sure he would competitive in the 250 class.
I don't have a problem with Mike Brown running 125's. I hope he gets the championship. He's a profesional trying to maximize his returns. Its a business. These guys can have career ending injuries at any time. I can't blame any one of them for going where they can do best. Its a tough business.
Plus I like to see those Kawasaki's whooping on the choosen bikes of the marketing media. That Kawasaki chassis has been around for a long time. Still a good race chassis after all these years. I hope James Stewart continues the tradition. So far this year..250 supercross Championship, 250 Nationals maybe?, 125 nationals maybe? A clean sweep against the tide possible? That would be awesome and hopefully eye opening.
