1 down and 2 to go...Mike Brown has been getting great starts and he hangs on for top 10, but is not competitive, Sean is not a factor at all and seems to like getting lapped. Ryan never had a chance,and "Blisters" is not considered a injury over here. He had a problem even qualifying for the race, couldn`t cope with the timed qualifying for race positions. I think that I`m going to win my bets that no American rider would last half the season over here.Only 3 races into the season and 12 to go, looks like sure money :boss:

Not to mention he was pretty much washed up over here and struggled just to finish. Doesn't say a lot for the rider depth if he is finishing top 10s

In 2006 he went
no results races 1-6
race 7 = 13th
race 8= 11
race 9 = 5
race 10 = 10
race 11 = 6
race 12 = 35
So maybe washed up is a harsh choice of words but he still struggles here in the US to do much of anything

sure money

Mike is in his 30`s and in his last seasons and shows some spark for 4 or 5 laps, then just hangs until the end. Still plan on pocketing my dough and waiting for a competive US rider to make the journey over here, but it ain`t going to happen...too tough :p

Or the money just may not be enough to pass up the US series. I doubt any of the top 5 would even consider leaving the money to go live abroad but it would be interesting if some of the real heavy hitters here decided to go over

Winner race 1 MXdn-Stefan Everts, Winner race 2-Tony Caroli,
Winner race 3- Stefan Everts, Winner by overall points-USA.
There is no doubt the fastest riders are in the USA, But it is still not a proven fact that they can endure the 16 races of the GP`s over here. 1 race they can do and almost win a moto,16 races...... :fft:

The reverse is what GP champs have come over here and what did they do here?
Both series are completely different as far as track set ups and conditions. I wouldn't say the GP is so much more brutal as a style that we are not used to just as our series are not that brutal just not what the Euro riders are used to

I agree..the GP is a brutal series and puts more value on adapting to different and extreme track changes and finding a true winner with the speed and ability to survive the series rather than pure speed and being able to recover between races, there is no real recovery time here and a champion over here has the right to be called the World Champion,they race all over the world and not so much the same tracks every year, maybe the same country but not always the same place or track, a lot of adjustments when you have to travel 3-4 days and race the next weekend, indeed a completely different type of Motocross...here`s Brown`s interview from after the race

Enjoy.... :cool:

Dangit Lynch, I wish you'd just stayed the lead guitarist for Dokken.

Looks like the AMA boys set us straight today about who's series generates faster riders.

7 out of 9 podium position in the three races were "AMA" racers. AND the winner of the MXDN "B" race was as well.

Villipoto was in a class of his own based on lap times..AND race wins. He won the first and second race going away on a "lites" machine. Cairoli crashed trying to keep pace....twice.

RC won the last race. (RC-Ferry-Langston)

SO based even on the LAP times...who's from the FIM who can run an "AMA" class pace??
