Guys - tell me what's happening there at your side of the world - where are all the Yamahas in what we call MX1, and you simply call"motocross" - the outdoor championship? Are the big blue bikes that bad? There must be other reasons I am sure... :thumbsup:

I know in the lites blue colour was fairly represented, but the in the other class the red train is taking over! :ride:

They are either hurt or not riding outdoor motocross.

Anybody notice the Suzuki Vuillemin was riding??????? I believe it was an RM 250..............2 stroke! He finished 17th. I was at the race and think i would have noticed that but i didn't...paying more attention to the lites class....I had 2 friends finish top 20. It was an awesome track and the racing was excellent.

DV was on a four stroke, the AMA had a misprint and said it was a two stroke.

All of the riders currently representing yamaha in the US, are either new to the 450 class, or are now coming back from injury or time off. As we know, Langston and Hepler are injured. I expect Josh Hill to do really well soon though, and Hamblin is doing well already - but he is pretty much doing it on his own compared to the other yami guys with lots of support. Now if you want to takl about over in Europe, yamaha is runnign away over there so far with the excellent results, Josh Coppins and David "Phillipants" are representing well over there.

I was there too. No 2-strokes on Sunday. DV was a little slow though and might have benefited from a 2-stroke.

Hill was literally dragging ass (his cheeks were hanging out!). Red couldn't hang with green or yellow on either MX moto.
