Sounds like a friendship gone sideways :think

From RacerX online
Racer X: It’s like you and Ricky have traded places for the 2002 season. What’s your take on that?

Ezra Lusk: Well, I’ll tell you how it is — the change has affected our personal relationship. We used to be practice partners for years. There were days I wouldn’t even put my leg over the bike unless it was just him and me riding. Now he’s number one and he doesn’t care to ride with me anymore. It’s a touchy subject. Once we’re done racing and retired, we’ll be friends. But right now, we’re not tight. In fact, I’ll say I’m a little disrespectful to Ricky right now. He doesn’t ... [long pause] … if he thinks he can come in and do what I thought I cold do [at Team Honda], he has another thing coming. He thinks I wasn’t good enough to get it done at Honda, and that I didn’t put the effort in. We’ll see how he does.

I don't know if I'd call them fighting words, definetly a warning to RC to be ready for Honda and thier attitude. Honda is trying everything they can to buy another championship, RC is just the latest.

BS! Those ARE fightin' words!

I love it. That's the first inside line we've had on Ricky and his 'tude. I'm with Ezra. In fact, he's my new HERO, for speaking up and telling the truth about him despite the fact that it's slightly unprofessional, politically incorrect, and ill-advised. I love a good rebel. :p

Supercross will be interesting, and I think closer competition than most think.

Go Ezra. :)

Ditto. Maybe the added motivation is just what Ezra needed. Hope the green bikes suit him. I would love to see somebody rise up and take both titles from team red next year. Its gonna be a tall order

This is great. I really hope Ezra can step it up this year. I've never been a big supporter of him in the past, but I really hope he can take RC off the top spot. I also like a good rebel. His words in this interview sounded like they came from the heart.

I've also felt that RC's head was really starting to inflate too much. His recent interview sounded pretty pretentious to me. I really want to see him humbled.

Was that the one where he stated "I deserve Honda and Honda deserve me"??

It does seem to have gone to his head.

I kinda feel like RC has earned the right to say just about whatever he wants(too an extent), he has proven to be one of if not the best MX racer ever. I'd also say its a proven fact that Honda puts alot of pressure on their riders they have a bunch of history they're trying to live up to. Ezra is one of my fave riders and I hope that this move to Kawi works out for the best for him and he can get back to where he was in 98 and 99.

hmmm . . . I guess so, if you differentiate MX from SX. But to me, nowadays MX equals MX plus SX (in the old days there was no SX). So by my definition, he has a long ways to go to get into the "best ever" category.

you guys must be in heaven. the two biggest hate groups in mx have now united. the honda haters and the rc haters. just think, you will have something to complain about for at least two more years. ezra must feel left out now.

Before you can be considered the best you have to last loner than a couple of seasons. The "Best" will have to win more championships than MC to ever have that title.

i put decoster, hannah, and rc above mc. there is no doubt that mc is the best supercross rider ever and will probably remain that way but i don't think his outdoor results are good enough to justify the claim of best ever all time.
