RC on Wind Tunnel Last Night

Not sure if this was a repeat, or just a tape-delay because there was no mention of the torn knee. Straight from RC himself:
  • 250 for SX, 450 for MX
  • Bubba is the next big thing, just like he was after MC, and racing him will be fun
  • Not going to pursue a SX-only contract-too much fun riding both indoors and out.
  • Supermotard will probably follow the SX/MX career
Anyhow, this interview seemed to show a much more mature RC. It makes a huge diff when you're being interviewed from your own home (amid a mountain of giant trophies, at that!) while you're relaxed as opposed to immediately after a race while emotions are high. Nary a disparaging comment was made toward any of his fellow riders. Nothing but praise for the group. Sounds like the kid is growing up at least a little bit to me.

Now, bash away (Pred:p )

I'll begin with the bashing. You mean he wasn't in anyway looking down on us (everyone) as lowly, unequal worms?

 :silly:  

Ahh, did RC hurt your feelings with something he said once?  Poor baby.  There, there.  It'll be all right.  

So RC doesn't always say what you want him to say. And he is not the best interview or the most handsome spokesman to ever walk the earth.  Get over it.  

 BTW, RC has improved a lot in front of the microphone during his long and very successful career.

Who cares about an MX snob? Real men ride in the woods! Until RC wins an Off Road title, he is nothing but a jumper.
Settle down people, I am just playing around. Just yanking your chain.
LOL.

Hey man I am a big Hannah fan. When Bob rode Yamahas I had a yz 80, When he was on Hondas I had a CR125, When he rode Zooks I got a rm 125. The guy was my hero. I even got to go a Tony D school at Etown, Hannah and Ronnie tichnor were the the instrutors, talk adout a cool day!!! Thats why I don't get your hate for RC he is cut from the same cloth as Hannha, without all of the smack talk. RC is all Hannha was and more. But I'm over getting all worked up over the RC haters, if you want to hate the kid go nuts.

I'm a big Hannah fan as well.

As for the RC haters, I'm just trying to figure out if there is a consensus as to why.

Maybe we should start a poll.

The REAL reason I hate RC is:

a)  He's short.

b) He's got red hair.

c) Not good enough looking to be an MX superstar.

d) Doesn't say what I want him to say during interviews.

e) Someone told me he's not nice to kids and/or dogs.

f)  He rides a red bike/used to ride a green bike.

g) Doesn't smile bright enough when signing race day autographs.

h)  Beats my favorite rider like a rented mule.

i)  All of the above.

j)  Other.

 

So which is it, RC haters?

he never has had the stigma of the happy-go-lucky wonder boy, it isn't that they dont like him but wonder boy pastrana stole his thunder and then bubba burst onto the scene, he isn't the crowd favorite, but he wastes the crowd favorite at every race, that doesn't sit well with the fans.

It seems like everyone has a story how RC beat thier kid out of the free pair of goggles and autographed poster that they are entitled to when they buy their SX ticket.

I'm a big fan of RC. I have never seen him treat anyone poorly at the events I have been at. I still remember how shy he seemed when he won Daytona on teh 250 for the first time.

He is a great champion in my eyes and a great ambassador of the sport b/c he just loves to go out and give his all on a dirtbike. You can't really ask for more than that.
