Welcome to the 2023 Slaw/VurbWes/Troy Dog Combined 250/450 Top Ten Power Rankings! Slaw, Wes, and Troy each have created their own list of who they believe carry the most power in the sport. They each have created their own categories and have weighted these people accordingly, whether its speed, following, SX skills, you name it. 

Each week these rankings will be updated so that you guys can argue about how wrong they are in the comment section! Feel free to tell us if we’re right/wrong/or completely dumb.

Troy’s Rankings:

A lot of talk this week was on the random teardowns of the PRMX team as well as the Bar X Suzuki bikes. I checked in with everyone I could to get the story and they were just random teardowns. Which means, they actually were random, or no one wants to tell the truth. No one that I talked to, including PRMX owner Julien, had seen this before. 

The GOAT, Ricky Carmichael, gets second because I want him to know what it feels like to finish here for once in his life. He’s been finding my tweets lately and it’s been a pleasure to interact with him. Sorry Ricky, maybe we can bump you up to the top spot on this list soon. 

Derek Kelley finished a career best 6th place in Glendale. He’s come a long way from the off-road racer he was just four years ago. I talked to him about that this week. He’s got some big goals set for himself. 

Can we get Grant Harlan the Rockstar Husqvarna fill-in ride please? Oh, and can we get him in the PulpMX LCQ Challenge race as well?

Eli Tomac isn’t human and took over second on the all-time 450SX wins list. 

Hunter Lawrence is riding the best he ever has this season and the East is back in action this weekend!

I don’t know man, RJ Hampshire will literally do anything to win and I love his attitude about it. That’s power. 

Clinton Fowler, formerly 3LapsDown, and currently Fowler’s Facts has been a friend of mine for over three years now. He has incredible insight and this sport is lucky to have him. Feld, pay this man whatever he demands because he is worth all of it to your production. 

World Mini is awesome.

I’m still not counting Cooper Webb out of this championship.


Taking the week off. I was not at World Mini, so I’ll let Spencer and Brad run with it this week.
