Question trivia question

Has there been any other brother combos capable of top 10 finishes besides the Stewarts? Maybe Gary and DeWayne Jones or Bob and Billy Grossi in the 70s.

Chad Reed still gutting it out.

13/10 at Red Bud for 12th. He was SO close to RV's speed prior to his crash in Dallas SX 2012. Hasn't been the same since.

Mike Brown also makes top 20 at RBud with a 15- 35 for 19th.

The Wankets but I don't think they were top 10's.

Internationally there was Derek and Don Rickman; and Eric and Sylvain Geboers.


In the US, Jim Pomeroy had a brother Ron that was pretty fast, although I'm not sure about placing in a national top 10.

5+ years ago Mike and Jeff Alessi. I don't know that they ever did, but they were CAPABLE of it.

Saw DeCoster's comments post moto1 about electronics failure, but my question about the starting is "did they remove the kickstart?" Or do the KTM MX bikes only have e-start now? I was confused by him resorting to pushing, but if there was no kickstarter then I'd understand.

Miller Motorsports new track. Looks like fun! The dirt looks weird though. It almost looks like gravel/sand.

As far as I've seen - estart only and no kickstart. The estart has probably saved him more times when everybody else is kicking than it's failed.

Shock failure in SX and now starter failure on the best KTM in the country?! Doesn't say much for orange reliability!?!

Shock failure was due to an experimental air shock KTM has been testing & electronics... I've known more than one bike / vehicle over the years to have one. It happens.
