motocross Official 2018 MXoN Smack Talk Thread

Recommended Posts

We are 5 weeks out, so lets hear it. The Nationals are over while the MXGPs continue to roll. 5 weeks of our USA boys not racing. Can hurt us but does allow the team to get into full on MXoN mode. The USA team is the strongest I've seen in many, many years and being on USA soil, we have a huge upper hand. 

Everyone is anticipating the show down between Tomac and Herlings but let's not be too hasty as there are others who just might joint that battle. Cairoli, Febvre and Desalle are all MXoN veterans and though not as fast as the the other two, all it takes is one or two of them to separate ET and JH to make it really interesting.

Watching the team USA press conference and our boys are fired up already. Tomac plans on racing the new 2019 Kawasaki and will be getting it dialed in over the next 5 weeks. Barcia seems to have a chip on his shoulder and just went 1-1 at the Iron Man race. Plessinger is the 250 West SX champ and the 250 MX Champ and said he's going to be "riding really aggressive" and only sees Ferrandis as a real threat. He's not giving any respect to the current MXGP2 racers......including Prado and Jonass.

This race that "doesn't matter" according to some in here has quickly become the biggest race of the year. All for pride, not for money. Even Tomac said he was given a lot of crap for not having raced the last two and that he had realizes he was wrong in that. I respect him for stating that truth. 

So how will they finish? I predict the top 5 as...

USA

Netherlands

France

Germany

Great Britain

Never Never Netherlands might steal the Chamberlain cup from France this year due to team France snubbing MM. Our effort will come up short only because of Tomac and Plessinger’s starts.

Loved Plessinger's grin in the presser. The thought behind the look is, "We're going to kick ass!" Of course Plessinger is a rookie and really has no idea, but it's still fun to hear from him.

Is October typically rainy or dry in Michigan? Or is it random?

Our guys have five weeks to practice starts on their new '19's.

I hear the 19 Kawasaki 450 is way better than the 18. But even with that, I myself don't like the idea of Eli running it in this race. Stick with what you have set up already Eli! Your about to face the Bullet!

Herlings stated he had around 3 seconds a lap extra speed if he wants it at mxgp ,he did just that in the qualifying race by going 3 seconds a lap faster than his best and anyone else ( on the last lap ) tomac needs to bring his A game

True.... But more than anything, he needs to keep a level head and know the overall points is what brings home the Chamberlain trophy.

What track was that? The flat Swiss track?

If Herling's spanks our boy Eli, then he does. This duel is one of the highlights of the race - the one measly meet-up for '18. I think most are expecting Herlings to be faster. But boy oh boy, if Eli is faster, Mog we will never let you forget it!

If they battle, they could push each other to fall. That's a real possibility. For both Tomac and Herlings this summer, the battles they've had are really drawn out passes. They've not had equals that can truly challenge them. But that's all part of it - racing flat out and not falling.

Earlier in the GP season Cairoli gave a few good challenges.

Tomac is going to end up in a dog knot with Herlings, as they compare sack size in turn one.....

Plessenger is going to go for broke and he will cross jump Cairolli...

Barcia will throw another massive whip into Roczen's face  and then stuff the landing...

Marvin is going to through beer cans at Paulin and shout something nasty in French...

Irish will win by attrition....

 

Still gunna root fur Merica !

The race will be on grates so ET may not get his usual mid pack start you all think he will.

Tomac gonna drop the hammer on those flat track specialists.

Once the race is over I'll start the "why Herlings lost" excuse thread
