2018 Silly Season Discussion

Postby DBRider251 » Mon Sep 03, 2018 2:48 pm

We always have a MX and SX discussion, time for a silly season one.

Surprise to see Martin go to Suzuki... interested in seeing how he does on it. Also seen that Taft got an AUS SX ride with Penrite!

Webb to Red Bull KTM with Marvin. Guess Alex either got paid or he just is constantly "almost" there, just sacking behind.

He's surely going to be impressed with that RMZ engine after all his time on the KTM!

Only reason he left KTM was due to them having too many riders and all the others still being in contract, Alex unfortunately just pulled the short straw as his contract was the only one ending this year. TLD team for next year - Smith, Cantrell, Falk, McElrath and then Drake is meant to go pro at dilla next year. Then the same with Brown the year after. Big problem when you are wanting to develop younger riders but also go for championships.

Webb to KTM I just don't get hasn't shown any speed like he did on his 250. IMO a lot more riders out there who deserves a factory ride over Webb.

450s
Monster Energy Kawi
Tomac
Savatgy
Bowers - Test rider, will fill in if either rider is out injured

Red Bull KTM
Musquin
Webb

Rockstar Husqvarna
Anderson
Osbourne
Wilson (not been confirmed yet I don't think?)

JGR
Peick
Hill
Reed(SX only contract maybe?)

HRC
Roczen
Seely

Yamaha
Barica
Plessinger

RM KTM
Baggett
Bloss

Motoconcepts
Brayton
Freise
Mookie (Was testing the bike last week, nothing has been signed)

Hep Motorsports
Cunningham
Bogle (rumored he is going)

Rock River
Alex Ray

Weimer and Grant both without rides, do both of them retire?

250s
Pro Circuit
Cianciarulo
Forkner
Marchbanks
Davalos

Geico
Lawrence
Hampshire
Sexton
J Martin
Craig

Star Racing
Nichols
Cooper
Oldenburg
Ferrandis

JGR
A Martin
Decotis
Lopes
Peters

TLD
Smith
Falk
Cantrell
McElrath
Drake to go pro at Dilla

Rockstar Husky 250
Covington
Bailey
Nicoletti (possible 250 indoors, 450 outdoors?)
Michael Mosiman or Mitchell Harrison? - Neither have contracts, so between those to for the last spot.

Traders
Renzland

Soubeyras is talking with teams to ride in US on a 450 next year like he did this year, not sure which teams tho but could probably be HEP since he end up the season with them this year

Is it him there's a lot of clips on riding suuuper dirty/aggressive in AX?

Also think Webb lacks some speed. Was blazing fast on 250's, but never really seem to do well on the big bikes when he moved up. But then need a 2nd tier rider that has a lot of potential to get better too, in that sense, Webb is a good choice.

Weird to think that Bogle's injuries have set him back this far, two years ago he was riding extremely well on a honda. I'm interested to see if Mellross signs with cycle trader. I question the kawi move with joey but maybe he has showed he is a 450 rider with a high ceiling, personally would take mookie or bogle over him (250 title winners) Webb to ktm is smart, worst case you get a consistent top 5 rider, best case you get a dominant indoor and outdoor rider. Chad on a suzuki interests me, if he trains he will probably be top 7 but i doubt he gets the deal as he is getting old, plus webb could take the spot which could explain jgr not resigning bogle.

Joey is a on a 1 year deal before AC moves up. Webb isn't even a consistent top 5 rider atm. JGR would love to have Reed especially if he is top 7 every week. Problem is nowadays publicity that is all sponsors want. Chad Reed will get the longest autograph line and I bet you he will get at least one mention every week because he is Reed. Sponsor will love that without a doubt.

Bogle needs to get a good solid year without crashing, doesn't matter what team he goes to. Just like Deano did, if he gets a solid year in he will get a factory ride without a doubt.

He was signed to just do the over sea races here in Europe. Not sure how he has been getting on.

If his MCR deal works out he will be at every round in SX.

Rumor is that its Anstie to fill that spot.

Completely forgot!!
