Rider Updates

It’s been a while since an update so here is the 2013 year in a nut shell. This year has been a roller coaster ride to say the least. Cambridge was the first race and the bike was having a problem since we went to Arkansas 2 weeks earlier. I ended up replacing the stator, coil, plug, tps, and coolant sensor and running the codes before Cambridge. I was in second when the bike died and would not restart for the life of me. I had the next weekend off and ended up finding another bike to swap parts and found out it was the fuel pump that was failing after 1hr of running. Millville was the second race and ended up winning Open A class and taking 2nd Overall in A! Carver was the third race of the year and it was a mud fest. I ended up winning Open A in Carver and taking the Overall for A class. Stone Lake was the weekend of July 4th and it was hot. The race started off good and I was leading the class and overall until the last lap when I got rear flat and the tire came off the bead. I ended up 8th in class and way down the Overall ranks. Hill City was the 5th stop for the year and I won Open A and took 3rd Overall for A class. I was excited for the 6th race which was Millville #2 and a long course with new single track. The bike back fired on the start and sent my knee into the bars and I was last off the line. The course was the best one of the year but I just never got into my groove all day for some reason. I ended the day 4th in class and 8th Overall for A class. I’m looking forward to Staples in two week and looking for a good race to finish out the year.
