    Tried finding something on their website and no dice... Know there's a handful of US riders there.

    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
  5. Red Fox Racing

    Red Fox Racing Age is only a number

    Did Ashton make it to the try outs?
  6. TrackStar

    I'm hearing through the grapevine that Gabriel Hernandez is the only one who made it through.

    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.

    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.
