    This thread has been started by the moderator solely for the purpose of not hijacking a positive thread about the Briarcliff Battle race. The posts were moved here and this thread WAS NOT started by any one user.

    This was my issue. Anyone who ever raced a pw or is a dad of one should understand. I don't see how pushing him off the starting line is teaching him anything.

    Looks to me like he was simply keeping him up. Clearly not pushing.

    Guy in Orange had hand on fender too. Nobody freaked on that guy. Daves kid is real small. The gate can hang him up and he would flop over.

    I get it from other side too. Nobody should touch the bikes but he wasn't blatantly pushing off and his kids real small.

    I'm not sure if that "push" would have given any kind of unfair advantage.

    Pitracer faithful out in full force to support their own. The kid is a good rider. He doesn't need daddy to help him from a dead stop. Dave does this all the time. That's why I was ready for it.

    The rules state to be away from the rider. If not how to we decide how much of a push matters?
    I don't think he liked it when I told him to find Ryan Dungey and cry some more for an autograph.

    I didn't start this thread. Not sure why it was turned into a thread. I posted the video in the Briarcliff thread because the situation was brought up.

    I don't know either of you so I'm not picking sides but I guess my question is did the kids have fun? If so just squash it and be happy you got to spend time with your families doing what you love. All good!

    From a referee stand point, no, neither father should have had hands on the bike.

    However, im a realist as well. From a real world stand point as a racer who once was kinda serious but now does it purely for fun... Did that make one bit of difference or make any sort of clear advantage? Was it worth bitching about? Uh. No. As someone said, did the kids have fun? That's all that really matters. Takes a real special person to make a big deal on the starting line of a pw50 race.

    I have hardly been to a race that it wasn't mentioned in the riders meeting for parents to back away from their kid once the card turns. It is how
    It has always been and anyone who has raced very much knows to back away before the gate drops. I don't even have a kid that rides and I know that.

    Is that a Shoei helmet?? What happened to Airoh?

    That last sentence I believe would play a large roll in your stance on the matter..

    I'm gonna have to give my wife the controller to my dogs shock collar that I'll be wearing if my daughter decides to ride at that age.

    "Babe, if I'm touching Dakotas bike when the 2 card comes up, hit the warning. If im touching it when the 1 card comes up, hit me on high mode. If its sideways and I'm touching it, get the 12 guage with the bean bags n let me have it."

    Vargo, my guess is the airoh is crispier than a bag of cheap dog jerky.

    Not sure really what you are after by posting a video. Disqualification of the rider? Maybe mad due to possibly in your eyes getting away with something? I'm not a PitRacer faithful out to support anyone! Just don't think you needed to take a video to try and throw anyone under a bus!

    If you can't do everything by yourself the kid has no business on the track. This goes back to whole my kid deserves a participation trophy generation. I bet dungys dad didn't help him start when he was on 50's.

    If it doesn't matter then why do it to start with? And Hershey is the one who came up to me and did the big chest bump intimidation move and I kept my cool.

    He's also the one who yelled at me and asked if I was mad because his kid was going to beat mine? I wasnt willing to touch that because I wasn't going to roll around in the mud belittling little kids.

    Like I said, his kid is a good rider and he doesn't need daddys help leaving the starting line.

    It's no wonder that the guys at the races talk about pitracer like it is a bunch of crazies. Bunch of guys on here saying I'm taking it too serious. My kid went dnf and 7th, so we're obviously not there to prove anything. I had my days racing at Loretta's......we don't go racing unless my son says he wants to go. If he doesn't we find something else to do.

    In my opinion, this guys history speaks for itself. Same guy who tried to make Dungey out to be a villain.

    But you have time to post in a thread about 50 riders. Like I said, the crazies are loose.
