So you're a Kawi fan-boy and know the team roster. It was Mike Fisher, not sure who the current guy is. Kawi is not the most PR savvy team out there these days. Sure they win races, but I think they suck at PR overall.

You still got your head up your ass as far as some of the comments you make. Unless like I said, you're using sarcasm.

And I am not trying to pick a fight, just pointing out a few things I disagree with.

In all honesty there was no way James was going to jump anything with those bars. It was game over for him.

Plus he races for race wins, not titles. You all should know that by now. Look at his record. A truck load of wins, and only two SX titles to date.

You totally missed the point. I haven't a clue who RV's team manager is.

Actually Dakar and other rally and enduro type rides is where real riders go when they are no longer fast enough to finish at the front in MX and SX type racing. Much better place to be than NASCRAP or Aussie Super V8s. Somewhat different type of race but still requires much of the same skill and talent set, just more endurance and navigation required instead of a closed course sprint.

Team manager? Aldon Baker . . . . . . . Actually I think he's been through several.

Dakar is a complete different disipline and has nothing to do with them not being fast enough to finish at the front at a SX.

It's not like it's a retirement home for over the hill MX racers.

It would be fun to see RV in Dakar. Don't think he'd last.

RD would, I think. Of any of the current crop, I think he'd do best.
