Default Ride Report: Cahuilla Creek May 7

     

Well Tracy went up to Cahuilla Creek today with the new CRF250. At first I could see she was a little frustrated with the suspension, so I new something had to be done. I backed a few clickers (hi/low comp) on front and rear to get the bike to soften up. After about 10 laps of some testing we have it about %60 dialed in untill we get the suspension done. I had her run some laps at slow/med/WFO. She did really really well and smooth as butter..like always. After 5 sessions of this (about 15-20 minutes at a time) I had her run consistant and I took some lap times. She dropped from 2:35's (2-15 minute sessions) to a very respectable and her fastest 2:17 (3-15 minute sessions). She maintained around 2:19's after the first 3 sessions. I'm very proud of her right now. She looks like a total different rider now that shes on her 4-stroke. Tania Satchwell (womens pro) was riding with her and giving her alot of great advice. Next week I think we are hitting Glen Helen but I'm not sure yet. Heres a picture of her and her bike from today.

Sounds like a blast to go out to a local track and ride with such fast riders!

I am pretty sure Tania Satchwell is from NZ? I always thought she from Aus but I am sure read in mag she's from NZ. She sounds like one friendly and down to earth pro.

It's awesome to get advice from pros! It's cool that Tania was friendly and all. I've talked to a few pros over the years and some of them are humble and some of them are WAY above the common rider like me. You just never know. It sounds like Tracy is pretty comfortable with the CRF.
