Default First HS WOOT

     

Well, Sunday was my first HS. I raced my 125 in the 86-200 C class. I raced at Dutchman MX in south eastern PA (formly Flying Dutchman) I was quite nervous at the start, and unsure about the track. What a race.....I was tired. I learned quite a lot from it and plan to do most of the races in next years season. For all of you in the general Penn area, you know what i am talking about when i said you got lots of rain. The track was FILTHY. I had loads of fun any way with my dad, brother, and some friends. I think my dad was a littly jealous.....maybe a YZ 250 in his future?? Back on topic, i should of taken some pics of those ruts, they were HUGE, a good 1 1/2 feet deep. I had lots of fun and showed me the difference between motocross and HS's. I was going to put this in pics/vids, but i figured it was kind of general as well. Here are a few pics; enjoy.

Looks like you have some stamina if you finished that mudfest.
Nice job!

I ended up 13th out of 17 finishers (not dnf's). My goal was not to do amazing, but to get out there and see how it is and to finish. I accomplished both, and am very pleased. It is hard to say which is harder, moto or offroad, but they each have their strengths and weaknesses.

Thanks Woody. Thats great news motoman. If you are serious in getting prepared, i would suggest some roll offs/ a good amount of tear offs. Also, a lot of back/core workouts would help to prepare you for the race (if you exercise regulary). Oh, one more thing; if you are on a 125 or smaller, do some left hand finger exercises, you will need it.
