Lets just say someone asked you this question,"Name the top five best American riders who would have a chance at winning Dakar in the next three years given the right opportunity?"
Rider must be American.
Rider should be capable of winning after a year of learning.
Does not matter who or what the rider is currently doing or riding.
Anyone want to list off five names?
Jonah (yeah I know he's retired but IIRC, in his resignation letter he was crystal clear that one of the main reasons for him pulling out was the lack of top-notch factory logistics, support & machinery)
I can't think of two other names that can achieve victory in just 3 years, no matter how talented they are at other racing disciplines.
