Such a dumb thing to say... Good thing is that cliché can work for EVERYTHING. Well done, you're officially the King of Vitards.

Just for the Racing model.

Yeah, right?

Started new thread Serious question about AMA SX championship, "an FIM World Championship" 5/28/2020 7:44 AM

First of all, i am super stoked the championship is back like most of you, no doubt. BUT... As it is, as stated anywhere officialy, "an FIM World championship", how come is it possible to run it without fronteers being open ? Joan Cros, for example, ... more »

Added reply in a thread Tell Us About Attending Your Very First Outdoor National (or GP) ? 5/22/2020 5:14 AM

French GP at Thomer la Sogne in 1985. Strijbos, VDB, Pekka Vehkonen... I was 9, but i remember the speed still. Next year my father brought me to the 500 GP, and the top riders opened a big double, i was in awe.

Added reply in a thread Motovision are putting some cool oldschool content on youtube 5/18/2020 6:26 AM

Malin was great, no doubt about that. But Seb was just a beast that year (and many others too, BTW). I've watched the 94 MXdN several times, i was also at Foxhill when the two battled in 1996 (i failed to qualify...). That year, Tortelli won 10 out of ... more »

No way. Tortelli was most of the time untouchable that year. Like, really above everyone else.

Added reply in a thread Looks like Beta is about to Release a/an MX Model/s 5/11/2020 2:31 AM

Sherco had a MX bike in mind maybe 5 years ago, developped by French riders Anthony Boissière and Michael Maschio, but the project has been stopped, not sure why.

Part of the problem is a giant pandemic worldwide.

Added reply in a thread PulpMX vs Whiskey Throttle 5/6/2020 8:07 AM

PulpMX, not even close, even if some WTS are good, depends heavily of the guest. I used to like Electronic Ping back in the day, but his recent behaviour is just too much to take for me. That said, he does OK on his show, compared to GL. Each time a ... more »

Liked a comment on the item @PING 5/4/2020 1:39 AM

Matthes must be living rent free in pings head.. On a real note has anything good come out of ping moving over to vital? The guy talked shit about us “vitards” for years on various videos and pods. Now he relies on us to click on his weekly segment to get a paycheck. I’d bet this is his most viewed only because he talks about PulpMX...more

Added reply in a thread You're stuck at home. I know you've got the time to send Ping a Question. 4/20/2020 12:51 AM

So Mr Pingree is explaining the MX community that Brian Moreau is a liar ? Because there, we don't speak about "folks drawing conclusions from from the sidelines." Extract from Brian's RX interview : "I remember everything, how they took me off of the ... more »

Added reply in a thread Anyone have a Sherco or experience with the quality and reliability of them? 4/16/2020 7:02 AM

Wade and Mario Roman are full factory riders... Sherco are very good bikes, no problem about that, but it's like saying get a Honda CRF, Roczen does fine on it.

Added reply in a thread New GASGAS pics? 4/6/2020 1:18 AM

It's expected, yes. GG will have pretty much the same range as KTM and HVA.

Added reply in a thread This blows my mind! 3/10/2020 1:28 AM

Hey, it's Toni Bou, what did you expect ? Toni is like RC, JS7 and Dungey combined. 26 world titles indoor and outdoor, 14 Trial des Nations. He won for the first time in 2007 on the world stage and NEVER lost a title since. Yep, true story. And he's ... more »

Added reply in a thread Most injury-free riders in history? 3/4/2020 7:26 AM

Fred Vialle, Tom's dad. He was a fierce competitor in the 90's and early 2000's, fighting for GP podiums and never had a broken bones. Amazing. Especially with his wild riding style.

Added reply in a thread Mitch Evans.... 3/2/2020 2:50 AM

Actually not very close. Pichon won all the races but one, that Chad won.

Added reply in a thread Greg Albertyn on the Whiskey Throttle Show. 2/21/2020 8:00 AM

I'd say he was the King of weirdness. But like you say, when he was in a good mood, he was a pleasure to watch. And he's a great and funny guy also.

Added reply in a thread Greg Albertyn on the Whiskey Throttle Show. 2/21/2020 6:28 AM

He's got 3 MX3 world championship, actually. 2004, 2006, 2007. And he won the MXdN en 2001. When Demaria was on, nobody could touch him.

Trust me, they battled plenty of times. Not so much on big bikes, i agree ;-)))
