G-Man, How did you do at Washougal?

29 posts in this topic

I just thought that I would put in the word that I live in Washougal and the races were awesome this year. Windham really ate up the track.

How does washougal treat begginer riders? I am new to racing but would love to try washougal. I practice at albany supercross and race at clarks branch. I can double sand lake and come close to the buddy jump at albany. The max air I currently do is about 70'. I have built a track at home with a 50' table top and a step up double that is 30'. any info would be appriciated. :)

If you want to try a super cross style outdoor track you have got to try skyland raceway in ritzville. They have jumps up to 100 feet. If you like to jump you need to try this track out. Anyone who needs any info or race dates email them at skylandraceway@hotmail.com.

Really Washougal is one of the safest tracks around, no big jumps (just Chuck son jump)The downhill only makes you pucker the first couple times you try it, about the only thing they have tough is the big whoops. The track is just "FAST"

This weekend is the Oldtimer Natonals there, if your over fourty this race is for you, if not you can race the support class, just get there early were expecting a "BIG" turnout.

Really I can say that Washougal is a boring track for me. I'm a jumper myself and the track just doesn't fit my style. You can make the downhill an enormous drop if you want to but other than that theres not much. The Hillsboro 5 can be a little tricky buts its not too bad to rythm through them. The funnest part of the track is the whoops. They are different almost every time I am there but its fun being able to use different methods to go through them. At the nationals they were doubling the first four whoops and then just using front wheel placement to get through the rest. Overall it is a pretty good track to learn how to corner on and basically have a lot of fun. The only thing that sucks is that they are very stingy on when they let people ride. They have almost no practice times so the only practice you get is on race day. It would be awesome if they would open it up more.

Motojunkie,

Been out of town all week. We were thinking about going to Speedworld on Sunday but we are going to America West for the Freestyle MX tonight and will probably take it easy tomorrow. We are planning to race at Speedworld on Aug 12 though, the AZOTMX club will be riding this "Beat the Heat" event but it's open to anyone, as you probably know. The AZOT'er have a race at Air Surival on Aug 26th also, planning to go to that one also...

Just got back from Washougal. Our OTHGMX club joined the Oregon Old Timers. It's a great track for 30 year olds too. It's Fast and Safe. Had alot of fun. If you want big air and lots of it look elsewhere. If you want a really long track with lots of track time and enough room to pass, high speeds, and the best scenery for a MX track then Washougal is it.

Racer X,

Yea my puter caught a virus and the hard drive is toast. It's taken me days to even want to get on the Internet, those bastards who get off on sending virus's to people they don't even know, real sicko's!!

Anyway Washougal was awesome as usual, had a killer time especially with my buddy Josh there with his new killer RV trailer. We were partying and having a good ol time pulling chicks in there. The lies that were told I could write a novel with!

As far as my race on Sat, after it rained ALL FRIDAY NIGHT, you can imagine the conditions. They had a riders meeting and said we would only race one extended moto and the B & C riders would not run the big hill, which turned out to be a good thing. Guys were getting stuck on the small hills and the whole "race" was just to try and keep it on two wheels. 40 rider gate was in about 9th place on the 3rd lap when I approached the Chuck Sun Tabletop. There was a rider stuck on the ramp face, went to the right and the next thing I know he does a 180 and is heading right towards me!!! We tangled in a heap and it was so slippery I could not even get my bike up! LOL Oh well that's racing and I'm still in one piece so all is good.

Sunday racing was epic and watching

KFade-no-more, reel in RC and pass him BOTH motos was cool. Don't miss it on the tube.

Can't wait till next yr.

Never mind

MaicoMan,

I would luv to post some pictures, but the last time I posted pics of my "friend" riding her CR500 in her thong, they got pulled very quickly (btw did you get those?)

:D and I received a warning....

Guess this is a "G" rated site.

Did any of you Oregon OT'ers see any Arizona OT'ers at your International?

The only OT International I have been to is our AZOTMX International back in April. I was really looking forward to it and possibly going to other Internationals until I raced our race. Call me a wuss but five 20 minute moto's in two days turned out to be more than I was looking for. I asked our club president to consider recommending a four moto format at the next national meeting. Any thoughts from other OT'ers...
