Fast Thoughts: Ryan Marmont

JDR/KTM Factory Racing's Ryan Marmont sounds off on a number of motocross topics.

A new section we have been looking at introducing to MotoOnline.com.au for some time now is ‘Fast Thoughts’, where we corner a rider and get their opinion on a number of topics that we might not often hear about.

To start, here’s a few that we did with JDR/KTM Factory Racing’s Ryan Marmont a little while ago, but this is just th etip of the iceberg – the topics will get tougher as the feature gains momentum.

Marmont is one of our greatest ever domestic stars, a multi-time Australian champion who is recognised as one of the sport’s nice guys. We ran four topics by him to get his Fast Thoughts.

JDR/KTM Factory Racing's Ryan Marmont is our first 'Fast Thoughts' subject for 2012.

Social Networking…
It’s definitely brought the world closer together and it’s a great way to stay in touch

I think we all miss the sound of two-strokes, but competitively four-strokes are quicker around a track

Mud supercross races…
Should never have been invented [laughs]. They’re terrible!

Practicing starts…
They are key. A lot of riders forget to do them, but I swear by doing lots during the week
