How did nothing happen to RC for 2 years?

Recommended Posts

The more I watch motocross lately the more it blows my mind Carmichael went undefeated for 2 years. No debilitating start (even RC might not have been able to come back from 40th) no mechanicals? No wrecks?

With all the variables it really seems impossible now.

That said Tomac really lives by the scientific law of "If it can happen it will"

Although RV never went undefeated does anyone recall him having a mechanical in the 450's?

Only thing I can think of is wrecking and running the straight pipe

Yeah I was thinking the same.  RC broke a shock in SX but I don't recall any mechanicals outdoors.  He had one of the best mechanics ever though in Goose.

Its amazing how in racing, it's so much more than just being fast.

Guess that's why Carmichael and Dungey were so impressive.

I'd give some well deserved credit to their mechanics too.

Team Kawi looked like a pack of @$$holes staring at the bike. They should have swapped the wheel Not cut the line

the reality is that Kawasaki will probably never release the info to tell us what actually was the problem with the front brake and Pro Circuit will not tell us what happened to the 250's....buyer beware...

I think this more than anything. At least Roczen salvaged a good result on a blown fork.

Is it true that since RC raced there are fewer all-purposes mechanics and more specialists: "Suspension Technician", "Powerplant Tech", "Goggle Bro Tech"", "Cold/Wet Towel Chick Tech", all that?  Matthes was talking about it on a podcast. Factory Kawi needs to hire a "Front Brake Technician".

 RC has 4 guys attached to his bike at Honda and Suzuki but Goose was the mechanic at the races.  

 

RC had a goggle bro and  gear bro too.

Somebody should page Mikey Williiamson and ask him whats up or is he still to busy deleting his instagram posts about KTM cheating after an insider called one of his riders out for cheating in the comments?

Mike Williamson. 

14:1 50 HP 250s spinning 14000 rpm is what happened.

It was funny to look at Kawi "tech" talking about the front wheel instead of doing anything practical. 

It would have been faster to swap everything.
