Plessinger Podiums at the First Round
After his breakout performance in Monster Energy Supercross, Slaw will still a bit skeptical of Aaron Plessinger’s chances in Pro Motocross. Yeah, he’s a past 250 champion, but I figured he’s be a bit behind the likes of Tomac, Webb, Roczen, etc. Then Slaw saw this FIRE ASS QUOTE:
My bun raised about 10 notches after hearing this. I’M ALL IN ON AP! TAKE MY MONEY! PODIUM AT THE FIRST ROUND!
Justin Cooper Wins the Opener and Shows Up with a Slaw Dog
Yes, we all remember Justin Cooper bringing his dog up to the podium last year. Look, I loved it. Let these kids enjoy the moment. Well, this year Justin will be honoring Slaw Nation and bringing up some fine Slaw Dogs after he wins the opener. You heard it here first.
Ken is Playing Possum
If you read this quote from Ken Roczen at the opening round press conference, you’d think he is not going to do well this weekend…
It’s been a minute since I’ve ridden outdoors. Honestly, I’ve done this pretty much my whole life and that’s what I grew up on, but kind of felt a bit of a disconnect, to be honest. During the time last year when everybody was racing, I was forced to take it easy. It’s not like I was going out and pounding motos. I might as well would have raced. So I didn’t do that, and then we went straight back into supercross. So I just haven’t really ridden motocross for quite some time. Just been feeling a little bit of a disconnect with it. Trying to adjust to the speeds and whatnot and trying to keep my momentum up. As far as expectation for this upcoming weekend, I don’t really have any right now. To be honest, I kind of want to see where I’m at and then build each and every weekend from there on out. That’s really all I can say so far.
AND YOU’D BE WRONG. Ken is playing some Jedi Mind Tricks on everyone. He podiums this weekend. LEAD SLAW LOCK OF THE WEEK.
Hunter Is The Highest Placing Lawrence Bro
As the great Ralph Sheheen would say “Jett Lawrence’s brother” is going to be on fire this weekend. Hunter is a damn beast outdoors and after a HEALTHY supercross season, not to mention a very successful one, I think it carries over into Pro Motocross. Hunter podiums, while Jett gets fourth.
Cooper Off the Podium
Look, I think Cooper Webb will be fine this summer, BUT, the supercross hangover is real, folks. We’ve seen it too many times. Yes, there was extra time off this year, but I still think Cooper soaked in that championship is a bit behind guys who had extra time to prepare because they weren’t focused on supercross late. No podium, but at least a top five overall finish.
