For the first time in 40 years, the second day of the amateur race was ran on the “official” pro track.  Usually the back section of the pro track is not raced on by the armatures and a different starting gate is used for each race.  Because of the rain delay, they decided to “make it up” by letting everyone race the whole track.  I was so excited to try some of the lines I watched the pro’s race the day before.

30 KTM 65 bikes signed up to race the armature race on Sunday and  I had two pretty consistent races.  After passing for third I was taken out coming down the hill, I was able to get up and going fast enough to stay up front.  In both races, I was able to start in the front of the pack and battle for the front spots.  I was able to finish one race in 3rd and one in 4th for a 4th place overall finish.

Below are a few pictures from practice and the races:

The pro start has a huge sweeping turn that wraps around and goes straight into horsepower hill

This picture of horsepower hill was taken in practice.  You can see that several riders had a problem at the top of the hill and I had to dodge people down at the top.

After horsepower hill the track wraps around and drops back down into the middle

A few sweeping turns and a couple of larger jumps

A few more jumps leading towards the back pro section of the track

After several up hill jumps and winding left and right, it was back down the hill and out of the trees

A right turn and into a long section of large whoops

At the end of the whoops is the finish line…

or the track continues through more turns, a few step ups, a rhythm section and back around to the start

The track was really long and soooo fun!
