DR tech helper Scot Gustafson offered yet another interesting perspective: “Dungey and Baggett are a given but the 3rd rider is not. Normally, we would take the 2nd placed 450 rider as the MX3 pick and that would be Alessi. I would say no to the Alessi pick, not because of the Tony and Mike show, but because they are on an unknown privateer bike. Even though Weimer has experience at the MXDN, I would choose Barcia. Unlike Alessi and Weimer, he has won races this year, has Jeff Stanton in his corner, and has won on a 450 in 2011 at Southwick, and Lommel is a sand track.” Gustafson brings up a great point about the conditions the team will meet in Belgium, but perhaps the deepest insight from the DR staff came from Senior Editor Adam Booth, who claims that we should definitely “send Barcia and his mustache to dominate the world!” I don’t even know what that means!
