VURB CLASSIC RACE

This last weekend was the Vurb Classic at Oatfield MX Track.  We took our trailer because we knew it was going to be really hot and I wanted to be able to stay cool throughout the day.  During practice my Dad  worked on my bikes and the suspension and tried to get everything dialed in for me.  The Vurb Classic is different from most races I do.  This event had two separate race days and two different events.  Saturday I raced two complete races (4 motos) and on Sunday I raced another two complete races (4 motos).    So I raced a total of 8 motos for the weekend.

On Saturday I raced two races with kids in my age group and I raced two races with all the kids including the older class.  I was trying to work on my gate timing and my starts throughout the weekend.  In my two age group classes on Saturday I was able to finish both races in first place for an overall 1st place finish in the class.  In the two open classes I finished both races in third place for a 3rd place finish overall.

Saturday night I rode my SMX dirt scooter on the pump track and raced my bike with my friends.  Sunday morning I woke up with two parts of my body hurt…..(You probably remember my older post when I got bite by a spider on my eyelid and my eye was swollen shut, well I am pretty sure I am allergic to spider bites.)  I got bite by another spider on my arm.  It was really swollen, hard, red, super hot, and it hurt really bad.

My hands have a lot of calluses on them but I had a new blister on my finger that had popped.  It hurt soooo bad!  Just to hold on to the bike really hurt but I tried not to think about it while I was riding.

Sunday was time for a second day of racing.  Our generator stopped working in our trailer so we also had no A/C and it was about 100 degrees.  😦  I was able to again race for another two first place finishes in both of my age group classes for an overall 1st place finish.  I had a couple falls in Sunday’s open class races but I was still able to pull off fourth and sixth place finishes with a lot of really fast riders, with an overall 5th place finish.

Vurb Moto did a small recap of some of the races and they mentioned my name in one of the sections.  They put up a picture of me coming in for a pass for the lead in one of my races on Saturday:

Jett Reynolds
Jett Reynolds (above) is the pick of the really small bike riders as he goes up against Ryder DiFrancesco and Hunter Yoder in both the Pee Wee and 51cc Stock 7-8 classes. However he had nothing for Hunter Cross in the slightly bigger 65cc 7-9 class as the #71 took both wins.

I am still getting back into the swing of things after being off with my broken arm, and it was fun to have 8 races in two days.   I have to thank my Mom and Dad and my sister Hailey for all the help and support all weekend!
