1. Dismiss Notice

1st Malvern race of the year

Discussion in 'Race Updates' started by yamadogyz, Mar 11, 2011.

  1. So who's gonna be there? March 27th, first race of the year. Anyone who is gonna be there stop on by and say hi, might help with the pre race jitters. My plates are the only ones like it, white on blue #55. This should be my first real race in my life, quite frankly I can't wait. I've been counting down the day since January! Anyhow, just throwing it out there!

    Oh yeah...motocross fever. Ray, welcome to the motocross family, like Pitracer said...learn the ropes and enjoy mx. My first race was a harescramble when I was about 8, first time really around alot of riders, I pulled over and balled my eyes out on the first lap; I was so scared, ended up being a quick first race.

    As for the track...no practice this week, dirt is soft and we are putting all our effort into the first race. Our first practice may be the following wednesday, we will have the finalized schedule completed soon and will be posted on our website, on here, and flyers available at the track and Kames Sports for now.

    We have not made any major track changes yet...but it will happen, it's just hard this time of year ya know with the dirt. The track could be different between now and Sunday with high hopes to run the day course which is looking like a reality, but not making promises other than the track will be in the best possible condition we can make it. Looks like the weather is going to be dry and colder on Sunday for Malvern Racing and Area 330.

    Personally, I am fired up for the season to start, for everyone; all riders and tracks, just the sport really. See ya there! Brap!
     
  8. Ah yeah man! I'm there for sure! It's alright about the practice, my mom wants me to head out to apple cabin or battlesburg before the race but I don't think they will be open during the week. Anyhow, thanks for the info faith, will I be able to get my CRA at sign up?

    Yee Haw! Hope the weather holds. The boy is stoked, I on the other hand I shall sit this one out. Practice your starts Yamadogyz, don't try to be a hero and remember once you race one you are hooked forever! My first race I came in 14th, my dad thought that would get rid of the itch, wrong! Thousands of dollars worth of plastic and marble now grace his home, because I refuse to take them. LOL. That was 1986. Now Jack is begining to collect the marble and plastic, jokes on me! Matt.

    Yes Yamadogyz, you can purchase your CRA membership at all CRA events. Just go riding your first race, everyone has ants in their pants at the beginning of the season, no sense in trying to topple the field the first race in your case. Its shaping up to be a great day of motocross, I hope atleast.
     
  11. Sure looks like it, I plan on taking it easy through this one, for sure. Thanks again!

    I won't be to the track until tomorrow, the other guys have been down there. We will give an update tomorrow. I am thinking it will be good for Malvern and 330 because we haven't got as much bad weather as they were forecasting. Carrolton is a little further south than Waynesburg so I can't say for sure. It's been dry for the most part, the sun is out and the wind is blowing, so that will help dry things up. For this time of year, I am really happy for 330 and Malvern, as these are good weather conditions. So go race!!! or ride!!!

    Mr. Baker, we're good on announcing at Malvern. Thank you for the offer. If ever a time comes up, you will be contacted first.

    So yamadog, is racing what you expected now that the day is over? how was the day for you?
     
  20. welll, they sooo wipe the floor with me. Although I avoided wrecking which is better than most in my class. One guy must have been carried out to the hospitial. 17 people in 250C. I had one of the worse starts of my life. I hesitated and it put me straight to the back. I was told there would be 3 and 4 laps 2 motos. They didn't tell us which order though. I raced through, and it looked to me like the flagger was flagging me off the way he looked at me and seemed to point to the staging area. About a dozen people saw why I got confused and and saw me go back to the pits thinking the race was over, the other 388 didn't haha, so they must have took me as a dumbass. After that I went back to the truck, poped my bike up, grabbed a cold water and headed to watch the pros. After about 2 classes I started feeling sick and really lightheaded. I went back to the truck for awhile and then found out I wasn't racing my 2nd moto for another like 3 hours I went to wait it out but didn't feel well so we loaded up and went home. Am I disappointed in myself, yes, because I quit under my own free will, I forgot my techniques that I have been practicing for years, and picked a bad gate. On top I didn't make any outdoor practices and expected too much of myself for the first race. Did I regret going? Absolutly not, I raced and have that much to say for myself, more than most people. Now I have a month to get stronger, smarter, and faster. I can take advantage of this and come back better than ever May 1st. There will be many races this year and I screwed one up, all I can do is get better for the next. Don't whine, Don't blame, and Don't make excuses. I just have to work harder to be faster and nothing more. Although I did meet some real cool people along the way in addition. Anyone who is racing their first, you will lose most likey so ride smart and safe and treat it like a practice. Don't try to be a hero, and most definatly no matter what, don't quit, DON'T! that was the biggest flaw I ever made.
