Talking Race Report:My 1st race

Well I told you guys I would type up a race report tonight after my 1st race so hear goes:

I got up about 9:15am this morning..got all my gear,etc together and loaded up in the truck. My dad and I left out about 10:15 to head to Gold Hill NC. Got to the track a few minutes past 11am and watched the PRO and A classes start...walked the track for about 1 1/2 hours lookin over the trail and then headed back to get ready...Got my gear on...warmed the CR up and then rode around a bit. Talked to some friends and then headed to the starting line..Waited for a good while and then the 1st row took off..I was on the last row at the start,10th row. Guy holds up green flag and yells "30 seconds"...."20seconds"........"10seconds"...then dropped the green flag..I kicked the kickstarter down and she lit up 1st kick and I grabbed the gas...shifted to 2nd gear..then 3rd..THEN HARD ON THE BRAKES...I got a decent start. I was about half way back in my class and then some guy in my class in front of me crashed and I went with him...the entire class about passed me but I got going. It was really rutted and I ain't used to riding in ruts at all so I wasn't doing as good as I wanted..Anyways I completed the 1st lap and was in 20th place out of 23 riders..Then the 2nd lap I did better and when I came into the scoring tent after the 2nd lap I was 18th out of 23 riders..my 3rd lap really SUCKED BAD..I crashed so many times...I lost count after about 5..hit a fence post and went down hard..roots got me several times...hit a tree hard a couple times and went down..When I finished the 3rd lap I was in 19th place out of 23..the 4th lap was pretty good and I ended up finishing in 18th place..not to to bad for my 1st race I don't guess but I did want to do better...Thing is though I was racing UNLIMITED class and not HEAVY-C I might would have done better in HEAVY-C...Biggest thing was the ruts..when you haven't ridden much ruts you don't have that experience so it really slowed me down.

Great report, Matt! Glad you finished and did fairly well to boot! You will have better luck next time and work on your mental conditioning (concentration). That may have played a key factor on lap 3 with all the crashes.
