    25 miles apart, hang town usually over well before the racing starts at the mile. also probably not A LOT of crossover fans.

    Ferrandis didn't even need to show up today, but he just goes out there and kills it! Damn impressive.

    Sure enough,it is a rare deal to catch a National MX and an AFT Mile in the same day.

    Kinda gotta be tough though,once a spectator has put in a full day hiking around in the sun at a race,it can be hard to pull it together to head to the Mile.

    Yep, good for Ferrandis, wasn't a fan before but I give him props for the grit he showed over the season!
    And although I would have liked to seen Cooper with the title (actually wanted to see Jeremy with it) but Jett rode great as well and I think he is good for the sport, someone with some personality is great.
    Congrats to both!

    Jett and AP bringing personality to MX/SX is exactly what the sport needs.

    Hey not just personality and heaps of chutszpah......But Jett also brings the Donuts too!

    Well done to both Lawrences! And to all the Family for backing their 2 sons.

    Been following them for 6 yrs since they sold up most everything - packed up what remained into a shipping container. Parked that with relations and left Beerwah, Quennsland, Aust. (Note:Not Landsborough as stated in AMA results. Thats 15km up the road) and went off chasing their dreams via Europe!
    It was an eye opener to listen to both Hunter and Jett on a recent edition of Whisky Throttle as to just what challenges were thrown at them along the way. And there was many.

    Jett is a natural,he truly enjoys hanging with the crowds of enthusiasts that come by to say hey and have a donut.
    Hes funny,hes real,he has a good time doing what hes doing. If he gets a start winning usually follows.
    Hunter is much the same. They appreciate they have made it so far.

    That episode of Whiskey Throttle was very eye opening. I liked the Lawrences before, but I gained a huge amount of respect for them after hearing their detailed back story.

    Saw this on Peacock the other day.
    Jett said he took up 'dancing' for 2 years. That might explain why he appears to be very 'natural' on a bike.
    His body moves differently when taking and anticipating shocks. Makes him very smooth.
    Almost like Ken Roczen... but he's even smoother.

    Need Help. Im not good on Utube etc.

    Trying to find the video/ close up pic of Jetts rear tyre When it was completly bald -no knobs left.

    Certain I saw it on Weeges post race report. But it wasnt the 15:19sec episode....
    there was a longer episode that included him wlaking behindKenny Roczens motorhome as it drove out, And where the MEchanics where drinking champagne blown out of the exhaust fumes !

    Damned if I cant find it now
    Anyone got a pic of the knobless rear tyre on HRC #18 post celebrations???

    Funny. Well, Triumph gave him money, and he says the bike is great. Good enough for me! I'm buying one! But wait, Chris Birch said my KTM was better. Guess I gotta wait for Ricky and Chris to race.

    2024 JGR Factory Triumph SX/MX Team?? They say they are working on MX and Enduro bikes.

    I do love how in most promo videos showing big ADV bikes airing out big jumps, you rarely see them landing...

    I've been watching MXGP on CBSSN. I'm hoping they'll cover it. Theres always offroadvideos.org. CBSSN just has the second MXGP motos, so I've been watching the first motos on the computer, and the second on tv. But the offroadvideos ones are better. No commercials and the full show with podium interviews....EDIT: just looked at my tv schedule. Direct tv. CBSSN has MX of nations on sunday at 10:00 pm
