How many Pairs of Gloves, Pants and shirts do Pros Use?

Postby Rice Paddy Daddy » Fri Jan 20, 2006 4:27 am

I read that interview with Thor rep and he said he that for every race he packs 8 sets of new gear for Tim Ferry and Chad Reed.

There are 16 supercross races and 12 outdoor races.
So that's 28 races X 8 sets of riding gear.

Therefore, these guys at Thor get about 224 sets of riding gear per year! :eek:

That's not including any stuff they get shipped to them during the off season.

Does anyone know if guys like Stewart and RC return the gear after the race or can they just give it away?

Just think 1 jeresey lasts me a year or so LOL!!

RC is a has-been.
He'll go through at least a couple pair of underwear alone, just practicing when Bubbas on the track.

hahah...

that's pathetic buddy, calling RC a "has been"!

he's the most winningest rider in AMA history and he isn't done yet. he'd be the last rider to give up without a fight. bubba's absolutely amazing, and this might be his year, but to put any of those riders down (especially RC) is rediculous.

btw, did you check the results from the Phoenix SX?

Ya man, I've got some friends that are "DYE HARD" RC fans, I have to get the digs in when I can.
Believe me, they rub hard when the little bitch gets his way, what ever the cost. hehehe

Dye is to change the color of something, DIE Hard is too be truly committed to something.
By the way why are you looking at my moving moths??

yah, exactly, DYE hard. As in they have a hard time cheering for Bubba because they are playa hata's and its too hard for them to change the color in which they cheer for. And I am not talking about bike color.

That can't be right... The top guys go on the track 6 times during the weekend (now 4 times @ SX). 2 practices on Friday (MX), 2 practice sessions and 2 races and Sat. And most of them keep their gear on between practices...
