Tried finding something on their website and no dice... Know there's a handful of US riders there.
4 Americans made it through to tomorrow!
I didn't get selected, I think it's my age and skill level! Bastids.
Daniel Costilla, Gabriel Hernandez III, Anthony Mazziotto III & Josh Serne made it to the 3rd day
Did Ashton make it to the try outs?
I dont think he got there.
I'm hearing through the grapevine that Gabriel Hernandez is the only one who made it through.
Full announcement of all riders:
They only took 12.
Can someone find laptimes? I want to know how Mazz actually did.
SO we have an American in the cup....
Not the first time. Looks like Beach won it in 2008 and Gagne in 2010. Unfortunatly, actually winning the cup doesn't seem to open too many international opportunities, at least for Americans
Yeah. What's up with that? Looks like the cup has 24 riders competing each year. Guess they fill the rest of the 12 spots with pre-chosen Spaniards and Italians
They usually keep a bunch from the previous year.
I know and also Cameron Beaubier also got in and was teamed with the MM93.
I'm just happy the US has another rider in, IIRC last year we did not have any one get in.
The Buzz on Facebook is that some of the other Americans are not very pleased with the situation. I'm gathering that the choices didnt have much to do with lap times.
Kelly what are the times? I can't find them anywhere
I have no clue. Just been reading some posts from folks who were there.
Not putting much weight into any of it. Theres no "rules" or anything that the judges are looking for in that deal. Its like the Olympic gymnastics of motorcycle racing. I really REALLY hate to see these kids judged on anything but laptimes. They have lived and died by laptimes their whole lives and know how to deal with that, having a kid go out and ride his ass off and be fast and told no for an unknown reason or opinion would be hard to process.
