You going to race or is it just practice? What kind of tracks do you guys have in England? Are the like the Euro GP tracks or more like US tracks kind of a mix between SX and MX.

Im just going to practise It will be the first time ive used a track as up till now ive been rideing quarrys ect... Im gonna get that CR5 on thier and see what it can do, Hopefully the bike wont get the hump and throw me off. Im playing lots of Motorcross Madness 2 and watching Motox vids to gee my self up.

Ive heard alot of good things about his course and its meant to be very big and very popular.

As for the tracks in general the tracks ive seen are normally just MX Tracks but thier are some Enduro tracks around too..

Well In the end it was a bit of a dissapointment.. Within the first few seconds of being on the track Iwas sitting on my arse with the bike laying don beside me..
The track had just been graided and the top soil seemed very deep. I span out on my rear end imediatly on the CR,
I think it was a mixture of stuff I didant like about the track. Firstly it was very small and narrow.. I couldant open the CR up atall. Which was probably the problem, Cos the CR is a bit heavier than most I carnt really Get it into the band on a small track thier for the front end doesnot get light and float over the top if you get my meaning..
Even my bro said at one point he though he was rideing across sinking mud.
I think the CR needs a bigger track cos ive never seen a track as small as this one before.
So we didant stay for too long.
Ive found a nice track about 35miles away from me its more of a enduro track with big jumps but they let MotoX on thier to.
SO were gonna try that one to soon.

For sure, let us know Andy.

When a track is freshly chisled it can be difficult to manuver on at first. Once some lines get cut though you probably would have enjoyed it a bit more I would think.

arrrrrrgh, I wanna come to a track with you Andy. I need a towbar first to tow ny bike 170miles to yours like the good ole days. Towbar will probably be bought and fitted next week.

I badly need to get my CRM on a track for a good thrash.
