He looked really good that second Moto. Didn't see a thread on him and was curious if anyone has any news on him for next year?

Worked at a local dealer in Brighton mi his hometown. Know him since mini d14 days. Kids stuck to it and has earned it. Moved down south to grind down there when he was a teenager. Goes to show you that anything is possible and you want it bad enough you can obtain it. Great family great work ethic. Can't think of anybody more deserving of it. Wish him the best.

I'm surprised this hasn't been talked about more also. That was a solid ride - under serious pressure from the contenders pretty much the entire moto and never lost his composure. Very well done!

He didn't look like a guy that lucked into a start and finish either. He was seriously hauling ass and looking composed doing it.

That kid is on his way up, he was a top amateur that had to switch to an entire different platform and is getting it figured out. Believe what I say it was for the better and he will continue to build till he's a major factor. I'm a big fan of him.

Old thread, BUT.... His 'team' CERTAINLY LOOKED like the Three Stooges at 2019 A1..... I'd fire them ALL & get a crew that knows what they're doing! How embarrassing!

Clutch problems while leading his heat and a broken bike during LCQ. Poor guy, he was really on it!

Yeah, fire everybody and start over with a completely new crew at round two, because mechanical failures are always everybody's fault.

That makes sense.

Just like Eli did after a front brake issues. Just like anderson after his spokes got ripped out.

How do you compare racing battle damage like ansersons spokes breaking to two engines blowing up in supercross? I would be looking for a new engine guy for sure

Watch the races... In race 1, when the clutch reportedly failed, he rode up to his team & their body language looked very suspect to me. Then, race 2(LCQ), his bike immediately started smoking, on the line. The TV guys said the crew had swapped out the engine & possibly left a hose clamp loose..... I certainly would not have swapped out an engine for a failed clutch, if that's even what the problem was, which I doubt. Looked more like a broken transmission to me, since, in race 1, he skidded to a stop, shifted down, then rode away with no apparent difficulty. I believe I'd be more inclined to swap the race suspension onto the backup bike, not the backup engine into the #1 chassis. Anyway, leaving anything loose & leaking on a top ten national competitor's machine is worse than rookie level performance, and, in professional level sports, you rarely get more than one good shot at the big time. Those 'mechanics' who fumbled should not be allowed another chance to fumble his career. IMHO

I think they can only tech 1 bike.. so they have to swap parts in order to race.. they don't have a choice.. its not like the GP's where I believe you can tech 2 bikes..

There are no back up bikes in ama racing except for triple crowns which is a brand new exception

They also mentioned that they had problems with the clutch during practice. The team must have thought they had it sorted but didn't. That's why everyone looked so upset, and that's why they knew they had to get back to the truck and immediately begin the engine swap.

It sucks that they probably just didn't have the time to cinch everything down properly, and that must have led to them locking up the motor. Bummer for him, but he looks fast this year.
