Race report THE Wick 338 05/26/2019
« on: June 02, 2019, 04:47:22 PM »

When a six week layoff ended with OP the day before it was time to get serious and represent M.I.R.A. in some MSC (http://www.mscmotocross.com/) vintage race action!


MSC is cool due to the fact that they have Two-stroke specific classes (125 and Open) and vintage classes. The uncool thing about MSC at the wick is you get three laps. This puts a premium on starts and we all know Im a holeshot artist. Yeah right. 

My plan was simple, race the venerable 1990 Honda CR 125R in both the vintage 80's and vintage 90's get the holeshot in each moto and wax them NY bums! well it didn't exactly go to plan.

Moto 1 vintage 90's: last into turn one, made quick work of all but the top two by end of lap 1, had a dog fight with ol 97 and this little rippa snappa 209. 209 got by 97 and the dude held me up a bit. by the time I got around 97 and made time on the rippa snappa the race was over. Man, I needed that 4th lap.

Moto 1 vintage 80's: Another patented Noshot. luckily the class is made up of burn outs and dip shits so it was no issue getting into P2. The issue was with some of the spodes in the Y2K class talk about outta control, I bet there is a picture of these guys in the dictionary next to the word dangerous. To say the held me up is an understatement, but you have to be cautious around these types. I did close on the leader but he had a good straightaway on by the time the checkers fell.



Moto 2 vintage 90's: Alright, I was focused and I knew that these chumps were gonna pucker "cause of how rough it is" pffft , rough, you New Yaka's aint seen NESC 2nd Half rough so quit ya crying, the track is like after NESC practice OK boys. with that in mind I knew the start was going to be important. I did better, at least I got to the inside with no one in front. I knew there was a smooth line approaching the drop off after the first turn cause The Prez told me about it the day before. All i had to do was wheelie over this hump and it was full gas up the inside. This line set me up to close the door on the all but one rider a the top of the hill, ol 97.
 I was nipping at the heels of ol 97 like a Dingo on a wounded Roo and once this Dingo starts, best just let him finish( Christmas vacation reference there). It was after the camel hump where ol 97 made his fatal mistake. After hesitantly choosing which line to take and me behind him eager to go where he wasn't, he chose the outside. HHHHMMMM fine with me, I put the front wheel to the inside berm and wound the ol girl up and into the drop off I had 3/4 a bike on him, coming out I moved over on him and put the hammer down. By the time the checkers fell, I had built a massive lead and I represented M.I.R.A. well. Victory in vintage 90's!

ol 97 " has no idea whats behind him" ( The Prez )

Moto 2 vintage 80's: Scratched- I had enough for one weekend.


Well this only one of the many good times we Brethren of TSM had this Memorial day weekend, hope you enjoyed yours!
Till next time TSM!
