If there is somebody « unclassifiable » in the History of Motocross and Supercross worldwide, Ron Lechien is certainly this one..
A Legend is built with stories and facts but with Ron everything is awesome..
He rode during a golden period when you could get at a Supercross race without any preparation….. and won this one..!
No training required when you are one of the Biggest Natural Talent of the History..
Jérôme FARAILL / MXVOICE.RACING : You were for sure the first « Mad Dog » in the history of Modern Motocross, You were able to come to a Supercross without any preparation and won this one (!!) .. Did You know that You had a Real Pure Talent or You think that was just a question of luck..?
Ron « The Dogger » LECHIEN : It was for sure Talent and I knew I was as good or better than all the guys I raced… It was just a matter of if I could make it to the finish without getting tired… Some night I was good and other night I would not make it…. I rode a lot, but not much else trains..
Jérôme FARAILL / MXVOICE.RACING : Today everything is controlled by the sponsors, all that a Rider « can say » is written on paper, no fun aloud.. Do You understand this kind of situation to force riders to be always « clean » with the cap and the goggles around the neck..?
Ron « The Dogger » LECHIEN : Yes I understand it with all the corporate money and television we have with SX/MX these days… I still like the days of say what you feel and if you win the race you get to kiss the trophy girl!!!! (Smiles..)
Jérôme FARAILL / MXVOICE.RACING : In one month there will be the GP of France at Villars-sous-Ecot, i know that You remember everything of this Famous MXON.. How did You feel it inside, as a Moment of Grace..?
Ron « The Dogger » LECHIEN : This was a very big win for me and Team USA and I was very proud to be the team leader and win both of my moto’s…. At this time we were the leaders in world MX and to be part of the 13 years win streak twice was awesome…!!!
Jérôme FARAILL / MXVOICE.RACING : What do You think You would be if You hadn’t find the MX on your way and without the Company of your dad (MAXIMA..), definitely a Bad Boy..?
Ron « The Dogger » LECHIEN : Hard to say Jerome… Maybe I would be a Oceanographer or something to do with animals.. I think the whole MX thing is what made me into the bad boy I was… I would not have been this way without the money and fame that was MX..
