Full gate of B and C riders. Gate drops and I am
2nd into the first turn behind the B championship points leader. I led the C
class by half a lap until the white (one lap left ) flag came out. I pushed as
hard as possible to maintain and extend my lead to the finish, but as I came over
the big finish line step-up jump, the white flag came out AGAIN!!!! Now I am
exhausted and the 2nd place C rider creeps up and beats me by a tire length! I
get a 2nd. DAMN!
Same scenerio: Gate drops and I get to the turn in 2nd behind the
same "B" guy. I drive hard and lead entire C class and all but 2 of the B riders
to finish in 1st in the C class. 1st Place overall. 2-1
Gate drops and I get the holeshot. Lead all the B
and C riders for one lap, then get passed by a B rider halfway throught the
second lap. Lead the C class by almost half a lap and finish 1st in C class.
Gate drops and one more holeshot. Get passed by 2 B riders over first big double jump, but lead the C's by at leat 1/4 lap to finish
1st in C. 1st Place overall. 1-1
Now leading Championship race by 88 points.
