Out of curiosity, I've taken a look on Osborne's results in sand-GP's during his GP-career.

Valkenswaard '08: DNS (injury)
Lommel '08: out - 8
Lierop '08: 24 - out

Valkenswaard '09: 4 - 7
Lommel '09: out - 21
Lierop '09: 19 - out

Valkenswaard '10: 10 - 13
Lommel '10: 17 - 10
Lierop '10: 11 - 6

Valkenswaard '11: 6 - 8
Lommel '11: DNS (injury)

Valkenswaard '12: DNS (injury)
Lierop '12: 7 - 8

Obviously a couple of years ago, but the longer he raced GP's, the better he got in the sand. Especially in the deeper sand of Lommel and Lierop, where he had a lot of troubles in the beginning. Since he got better (and more important, more consistent) in the US, and with the "two week bootcamp", I see him battling for top 3 in the qualifying race of Open class, and top 6 in the combined motos on Sunday.

I think Team USA will be ready to get on the overall podium.

Look at what Jason Anderson did at the 2016 mxon. El Hombre is an outlaw and he's dangerous on any soil anywhere. Zacho is tough as nails and fast. They will be in the fight up front. Justin Cooper is gonna be better than a lot of people think. I can't wait to see the brawl that is gonna ensue at Assen.

I have a feeling Anderson will step up big time. His loose riding style will work well and he’s not intimidated by anything. He will rise to the occasion.

I think this team might do some serious damage...like podium damage, and with a little luck maybe even a win.

Either way, i don't care if they don't score a single point, i'll be rooting for 'em! #TEAMFRIED

This is my favorite USA team in a couple of decades. Great attitude and motivation. Win or loose these guys have won my heart over and it will not be forgotten. You guys have finally brought back the right attitude and spirit this event deserves

IceOne I guess. You can see Antti Pyrhönen in the clip and one of the F1 Ferrari's of Räikkönen at the team's headquarters.

I'm just getting more excited for this event by the day. Like many of us have said it's just awesome seeing the effort these guys are putting in knowing full well what is facing them. Remember to keep supporting these guys for their effort regardless of the results. They're giving it the best shot they can no matter what the end result. You can't ask for more out of riders representing your country. I feel like a top 5 is realistic and with a lot of luck we may have a shot at landing a podium.

Are you smart enough to buy a bike that costs less, weighs less, makes more horsepower per cubic centimeter, can be rebuilt for recycled aluminum can money and is giggle inducing? It is hard to believe that the American riding public flunks this test en masse. How stupid are you?

If nothing else, this team (Anderson in particular) looks like they are reviving a part of our sport that has been missing for the past decade or so...FUN. There's a time to be dead-set focused to win and do the best you can, but we all do this dangerous sport because it's fun. I also appreciate Team Fried for bringing this DIY, have fun while "suffering" aspect back into the MX psyche. If they win, awesome. If they podium, great. But if they don't, they've still brought back some personality and mindset that is truly lacking overall right now with racing. Work your ass off, but give your all, but also allow yourself to enjoy it.

On a secondary note, the production and media aspects of how we portray our athletes is so outdated and boring when it comes to getting the general public interested and involved with these incredible athletes. We need more content that captures who they really are, what they are like off the bike and show their individual personalities outside of "here is this rider training, here is this rider practicing, here is this rider doing forced interviews in his riding gear, here he is doing a shoutout to the network". Shit is tired and so unauthentic.

Props to Team Fried for bringing fun and spirit back to the game and the MXON!

Those guys are living experiences that will better them and they will remember for forever. We constantly hear the broken record on here say, "would you work for free??....yada yada...." sometimes the gain isn't always monetary.

I always like to search for opportunity and these guys have it big time here... get your ass kicked and everyone has a laugh and leaves.... somehow pull off the win and be crowned moto gods forever.

Some of the industry insiders and media members should take a hard look at these guys and their effort towards this race.

What's your point? If you train in Florida you're also used to cold weather (close to freezing) and rain? I think it can be usefull to get used to that...

The weather will be perfect the coming 2 weeks.
Around the 70s, with partly cloudy weather, a nice after summer perfect for MX.

If you judge by the rental Kia Picanto, it's obviously out of their pocket and El Hombre wants to keep his cash for good weed.

Just 3 friends Jason Anderson, Matt Rice (photographer) and Tom Journet (film) having a good time in the summer. Team Fried just stands for having a good time.

Tom and Matt have been filming the journey since May this year (all the nationals). The vlogs give you a look behind the scenes of Jason Anderson and his friends, all funny stuff with the shit cam and some good mx clips. Thats basically Team Fried.

Here is there 'best of summer'
