  1. the bro club here is just as strong here as it is there.
  2. does your hand cramp something like a crab claw with your thumb and index? I'll get that at the end of the day sometimes when the track gets choppy.
  3. Don't worry about what class you are in, if you want to race go race. You can race vet classes, they're fast but most that I've met are beer drinking guys who just love riding. it isn't that serious to them. It's for fun, you want to have fun, get the 250 two stroke (they are super fun). Do a couple races, see where you stand. Spend some time dedicated to practice (consecutive weekends are better then consistently riding IMO. I'd take 5 weekends in a row over riding every other weekend for 10 weeks.) . Find friends to drive/ride with. Hit up some trails. Do a couple more races and see if you've improved.
  4. Double bump
  5. took 5 minutes on google earth. 90 feet max
  6. still smashing
  7. that rider was shredding
  8. yeah it's 100% situational, and instincts take over. Unfortunately to get good at crashing you have to crash a lot over a long period of time. You learn when to bail, when to hang on and ride the bike into the ground, how to roll out of stuff, when to let go, to not try to brace your self with your hands. It also comes with bike skills, if you are numb to the bike and don't know whats happening until it's too late, there is nothing you can do. But if you're good, and you know your bike and how it reacts, the majority of the time you can make snap decisions that can completely change the outcome of the crash.
  9. bump
  10. You look good, your body position is correct for the speed your going. When you can enter faster, you will be leaned more, the front tire will be strait so your elbow will come up.
  11. It was alright. There were local turn tracks that were better imo
  12. 1, 2, 3, will eventually be 6, probably 7
  13. If you are running a paddle go a tooth smaller on the countershaft or 2-3 larger on the rear sprocket
  14. there was definitely no seat bounce involved in that endo, it was the complete opposite actually. He soaked up the face with his legs which also drops the front. If you look really closely his front tire left the ground further up the lip then his rear. I would guess he carried more speed over the step on step off, jumped closer to the transition on the face of the triple which caused his rear to compress more, less throttle up the face because he carried more speed combined with the rowing motion soaking up the face and he got bucked because of the uneven rebound. The rear end put him up, he held on as long as he could and threw the bike away to try to get to his feet. He ended up slamming into the landing of what would have been a quad, so he definitely has some speed/distance.
