Short went from being a average rider on a good bike to being a average rider on bad bike. He probably won't do to well this season.

he will be fine. i do not see short as the kind of guy that will blame the bike anyways. he will just adapt and try harder.

calling him an average rider is kind of rough in my opinion. championship, no. top five threat no matter who is on the gate, yes.

short seems to follow the basics and it works for him.
-finish the race
-stay on the gas
-elbows up(his form is textbook yo)

dont get me wrong i like short, wish he would have gone to a different manufac than ktm(or ride the 450) i dont think that 350 has the nuts to run with the rest of the every race. hell alessi had what 2-3 decent finishes and that was it(could be wrong on that but hate him anyway)

and now you have pourcel(still waiting on a ride from what i heard), wiemer(didnt he move up?), canard and more to contend with in the 450 class. there for putting Short even more middle pack.

Where does the 350 fit in supercross? Are they trying to make a new class? I'd like to see KTM build a really kickass 2stroke and see if they could make it competitive in that arena.

ktms thought is that the 450 is too much power so build a bike with a 250f platform with a "450 power" 350 motor. but you could see last year that on many tracks it lacks in power.
