I forgot about Roger D. He would be the Euro-Goat

His day was pretty long too. First to win every AMA MX class, back when there were 3. 125(1), 250(x2) and 500(x2). Won two SX titles, and won two Supermoto titles!

Point being I'd prefer he was a little more humble and came out and stated the title of "GOAT" is too lofty and his achievements were made possible by everyone who collectively swung a leg over a dirt bike/dirt track/board track etc. etc. and he is just glad to be part of it. Most people who know him as the GOAT never heard of Maldwyn Jones. I'd love to see RC ride a board track bike @100mph on oily wood with no brakes. If he wants to come across as the GOAT he might want to find and old DeCoster jersey, wear it on TV, and pay homage.

I still say his advantage over JS was the age/experience. I still say JS would beat RC now.
blah,blah,blah...

It'd be better if he just said he didn't like him.
Obviously he never saw him during his dominate years.

I meant his car racing was better than GOAT.

Flug, do you realize how much you have in common with RC?
1)you're both redheads
2)you both love mx/sx
3)you both are the best racers that your respective parents produced
4)you both may or may not have indulged in drug use for whatever reason

For those wishing for KDub in a broadcast booth he was on the "Supercross Live" streaming (Supercrossonline.com) of the qualifying practice. And just as we thought he was great! Intelligent commentary, polite, some light humor. But he was just visiting, hopefully he will get some on-air time on the race broadcast.

Tomorrow, CBS
