Dang I wanted to start this thread. :)

But is Langston going to be riding a Yamaha? His roll there was for promotion and mentor to Hill and Hepler.

It's awesome that he is well enough to come back and race.

yeah i'm pretty sure Langston we be back on a yamaha. saw his bike at his shop that he rides and its still blue unless he picks up a new sponser until the season starts which is still a ways away.

yeah Jason been racing the bigger bikes. he's made the transfer much easier than any of the other prospects and is really fast just doesnt have the endurance yet (as seen at daytona) so this could really hurt him in the outdoors where speed isnt the most important and endurance takes over.

There's still a month to go before it gets underway. I'm sure Lawrence is in full outdoor training mode and getting testing the 450 for it too. It's definitely going to make it more interesting since Reed and Stewart are wussing out of the outdoors.

yeah, from what i've heard Stewart is still going to race some outdoors b/c he wants to still race on the US team for motocross des nations (think its in italy).

Anyone know how many races exactly or about he's going to race?

if u actually live in newport the 2 weeks leading up to glen helen u usually see pros out there. langston is out at elsinore during weekdays sometimes just because his shop is literally down the dirt road before u get there.

on a side note too the weeks leading up to supercross a lot of pros hang around perris, elsinore, and milestone. i actually rode with Tickle and Durham (both lites riders riding the east coast) a week before the second round of the east series. they were wicked fast too.

I would not advise riding Glen Helen on a Thursday just before or during the Outdoor season. It's like being in a National race there are so many pros out there. The are training at race speed and don't need anyone that isn't 75% of their speed out there getting in the way. I know by experience. One of the gnarliest days riding a track I've ever had. I was just a moving chicane to them. I went down in one spot and Roncada was cool enough to stop in front of me and wave everyone around.

He won a fan that day. :)
