There is another clip of a chap taking a swim after falling off a small cliff.

Did anyone see the insta post Wade made. Just saying its due to politics that he is not doing WESS.
Anyone with more details?

AFAIK -

WESS is a KTM run series, and Sherco doesn't want to support it.
Thus Wade and Mario not participating in some WESS rounds.

I found out from Nigel (Wades dad).

But Mario Roman did race???
He did, but as he is a Spaniard, I assume he did it because its his home soil.
Maybe Wade had another reason to not do Hixpania, that hasn't got to do with the Sherco/KTM politics.

Its probably something internal with Mario Roman vs him.
From what I have seen they are friendly with one another, no issues.
Have heard plenty that Sherco does not want to support WESS cause its KTM fest.
But find it so dumb, they have an opportunity to win this thing, that would be the ultimate fuck you

Also, must say that WESS has fucked events like the Roof and S2S etc.

I don't think there is a personal issue but rather a contract making him second rider to Roman.
Guessing how fucked up team politics can be, riding for a French/Spanish team.

Ok, so plenty up and down on this subject.

Sherco is not competing in the entire WESS Series hence them not participating in the entire KTM series.

Mario was granted to race due to his history, either based on a previous victory or his origin . . .

Can there really be such kak, surely they compete in other races head to head too.
Sherco win is a sherco win, not matter who pilots it i would think

spanish rider wins on sherco in spain will probably boost sales more than a saffa winning on a sherco in spain ... maybe?



Talking of wade i saw a watsapp clip of him cutting off travis in an unsportsmanly way with a few c and f bombs dropped in, anyone else see it? (maybe sherco treats its riders like i treat my kids ..."you misbehaved with travis so you not going to the next event ... now go to bed!!"

If you're talking about the below - then it was Blake, not Travis.

That was at ICE in PE this year.

At the risk of being an armchair commentator.

Watching the riders interact with each other I can understand that move. There seems to be a very definite Blake camp (by himself) and then everyone else.

Agree, not much love for Blake from the other riders. Have heard some reasons from some of the riders themselves, which actually justifies their actions.
Apparently the move Wade pulled on Blake is one that Blake will do on the regular. So fair play it seems.
