I saw RC race a 125 at Unadilla when he was a young pro. A gear higher and WFO everywhere, I was amazed.

If it's a blue engine RM does that have the linkage Hannah's USGP winning bike did?

I've reconsidered. On reviewing his career titles it's pretty hard to argue with. Though I think the sport is too sacred for one man to claim that title.
And I think he may have been juiced.

But that's just me.

If he was juiced do you still think his title of Goat is deserved?

there are reason's why he was and anyone who's never seen him ride would do well to do so. when he "returned" to Unadilla in 2011 and finished 3rd in moto one and they packed it in early in moto 2 he was rusty or whatever you want to call it but he still did the most amazing thing I've ever seen done on a motorcycle in the short span of about 75 yards and no he didn't crash. when you can carry those kinds of corner speeds it makes what follows a whole different world, in his case Bubba's world pun intended. lines are open that mortals can't even comprehend and that includes most of the current pro's. see him before he's done because the likes of him won't be seen again for a very long time.
I saw him at Hangtown and he was impressive,flat flying through the roughest parts of the track and kept anyone else at bay easily,he is a real talent indeed.
I hope to see him smoke everyone again this year.

How do you know or why do you think he was juiced?
Just a hunch?

please do expound on that list which comprises the host of others who spank James Stewart on a dirt bike every weekend I must be missing something.

After following the while LA debacle and pro cycling I wouldn't be surprised if 1/2 the pro field is or was doing PE drugs.

I know in the last few years there are more strict tests being done in MX/SX so hopefully it's being cleaned up there as it is in cycling.

Bottom line is you still have to pilot the motorcycle around the track and pedal the bicycle up those climbs.
Performance enhancing yes,but it's still not going to turn you or me into the athletes these guys are.

his facial features during his peak for one.

his ability to dominate for that long during that period in time when sports medicine was getting ever more advanced is enough to raise suspicion given his results.

I did say he MAY have been juiced, if I had to bet my life on it....I'd have to say....

It's a can of worms I don't care to open.

I'll leave it at that.

The year before he turned pro, he would have been 2nd or 3rd in the 125 pro class at Mammoth,





on his KX85.
