    Wouldn't be a good sx season without him. He has become my favorite over the last couple of years.

    Power of the mind. He Might be the most mentally tough motocross athlete currently on the gate.

    It doesn’t matter if 10 Roczen’s line up for A1, it only takes one 7 to clean house!

    Somebody new riding the #7? All I've seen Stewart due is either crash or get lapped and leave

    I just saw the Honda intro and Kenny looks fit. I think he will do great this year. It always starts off with a lot of excitement but the cream always rises to the top. Even J. Martin is riding 450's the first 3 races. Eli, Marvin, and Anderson are going to be ready. I hope they all stay healthy.

    Look, I wish Kenny the best. I am not his family, but even I have serious concerns if he falls and injures that arm again, as extensive as the injury was to his arm. Being off the track for almost a year, and seems like he may ride with a bit of hesitation. Not going to throw money on it, but I just have my doubts.

    Many on here always yelled, kicked and screamed every time I said anything negative about Bubba...but usually on Monday mornings, I was on here telling you I told you so.

    099....I heard a rumor Bubba is showing up in a Seven paid for Semi, racing a Honda, sponsored by Rockstar Egg Nog Flavor Energy Drink. Mookie is waiting for the AMA to change the rules again to go back and race the 250 class again.

    Roczen is still young enough that he won't hold back due to "possible" long term effects of reinjuring the arm. He's one of the few guys that has the "other" speed that takes to win races at the pro level, so he will be up there, if not right off the bat, within a few weeks once he gets back to racing. The early advantage I think goes to the KTM / Husky crew who get to ride together at the Baker factory and all train with him. Seems all the guys team up with a group of people to ride and train with, and if you have some of the top guys riding and training together, that should push all of them more. Never hear about Tomac riding with anyone else near his speed, which may be why he is either on or off............ doesn't have a way to judge how he is compared to the competition, until the races actually happen.

    I'd like to see a competitive season where there is more than 2 guys in the hunt, but if there are two guys battling, that is still better than a run away for just one guy. Hope they all stay healthy and we get a good season for the fans.

    They say Anderson has been training in California and not down at the Baker factory that much

    Tomac has been training with Jeremy Martin.

    Roczen will be up there...I fear a crash for him too...but I think he is more than willing to lose his arm for a chance to win again. These guys risk life and limb...they know that. Awesome comeback for him, even just lining up as a formidable opponent.

    I really hope JS7 is racing!!!

    Roxen will come out on fire winning the first round for sure and just hope no nasty crashes for him this year...kind of think he should have stuck with KTM as it worked very well for him.

    Honda has awesome support though. Can’t deny that. They stand behind their riders for sure. Look how long they gave canard bikes! He was wearing that collar shirt with a cast on more times than jerseyed up mounting a Honda on the starting line....

    I don’t think hamburger arm is going to do well, that thing is mangled.. I lost all respect after hearing him whine on a documentary that Bakers program was “ to hard “ and “ to much work “ so he quit him.... hmmmmmm, maybe thats why you can’t stay on the bike. Wasn’t to hard for RV, or RD and they are retired with multiple championships..
