SBK2 Supermoto @ Road America 8/17

Hey all,

Since SBK2 Round 4 is just over a week away, I thought I would put out a little reminder (since some seem to have a short memory - Geo), and see who was going to be making it up there.

Roman, did you get some superglue and get that thing pieced back together?

Matt, is the move all done so that you can get back to racing?

Bill, it's the last round of the DRZ Cup, let's see if that pig can fly!

Geo, is the wife going to let you come play?

Rob, are you going to be able to make 2 weeks in a row after LOL this weekend?

Anybody else?

---------------------------
Colin.

I'll be there for sure. I just need to change the gearing back from a July outing with the Harlow's at Autobahn and I'm set.

1st moto vet 35+ i got 2nd, 450sm i think i got last, i stalled it last lap trying to get Harlow. 2nd moto 35+ i was running 3rd and 5 laps to go front tire went flat in the chicane at 30mph i went down. End of day for me. I didnt race the 2nd 450sm race. No time to change out as the races are back to back. The dirt to asphalt transfer section blew out 2 other guys tires also. I was pretty pissed.

I ended up getting two 4th's for the day. In the first race I battled with Cole Walsdorf the entire way. He was on a 250, so he made up huge time on me in the last few corners, then I would blow right back by him going up the straight. I ended up beating him by about 1 1/2 bike lengths.

In the second race Cole had a better start and I tried to chase him down, but couldn't quite get to him, then Paul Buetner caught back up to me after making a mistake in the dirt early on. For the whole 2nd half of the race, we were no more than 2 bikelengths apart, and I ended up getting him at the line by 1/2 a bikelength. It was definitely a fun day of racing all around, even if I was hoping to be a couple spots higher up!

Tony, you were definetely look good out there. Too bad about the luck, the end of the dirt section was pretty rough for sure, and the square edge of the pavement isn't too helpful.

Any word out of Roman? How's the arm?

Thanks Colin, It looks like he fractured his wrist and dislocated a few bones in his hand, He said they popped the bones back and put a cast on him.

Get well soon Roman.

I must have been in front of you when the crash happened. I saw a few yellow flags and looked back to see you getting up from the table jump. I don't know what happened but I think there is something in the rulebook prohibiting soil samples on the cool down lap.

I second Colin's comments regarding Tony yesterday. You looked great out there and should share with us whatever new speed secrets you have found.

I hope to see everyone up a Shawano in September. That track is the best supermoto track in the midwest and is definitely worth the trip.

Sad to hear Roman got hurt. I hope he is doing ok. I hope for his sake its not his preferred wrist.

Here ya go Matt, Friday nite Module class at the Club57mx compound, Brad Being the Sadist that he is watered the track and made a mud pit out of it. It was painful but effective. Mud and slicks dont mix, I think id rather get sodomized then do that again!

Werd.

The first time I went to FVOR, they were being pretty dlligent about watering the track, which ended up creating mud puddles. Mud+front slick = 95% chance of falling down.

How fast is Shawano? I'm planning on making this one and I'm wondering what gearing would be appropriate.

Gearing for Shawano is very close to the other tracks. If you really wanted to be prepared add 1 or 2teeth on the rear from what you use at RA.

A strong 250F is a really potent weapon there.
