Love what you guys are doing and the OSU football game coverage is brilliant!!!!
Could anyone imagine what they could do if they put up lights? That would be cool.
I should be healed up. Hoping for this one to be my first race weekend back.
We tried doing night races and they were very popular but the light plants weren't that great and created dark spots and they were very expensive to rent.
Yea, well what if you put up pole lights. How expensive is that ?
I always thought Pyma and malvern are well lit.
So Quads and PWs are RACING on Saturday? Sunday is only bike racing? Similar to the Battle races.....
Correct, quads and pw classes on Saturday. Sunday bike classes only.
Can we try and not run the 50/65s last when the track is at its toughest. I get it. It's motocross and some people love it. But when the bikes can't make it through the ruts and the braking bumps are throwing kids left and right. That's not fun.
Our goal is to run them around mid-race order but due to running so many 50 classes we have to give and take a little. We will do our best to accomodate if possible. This was one of the deciding factors for running PW's on Saturday with the quads.
Could try early on in the format for first set. Like motos 1 2 3 or 4 Then run them again just before intermission. Then they're done before 2nd motos start.
...breath in... and out... going to remain calm...
NO. Kids need practice on rough tracks. THIS is why Ohio riders go to LL and get smoked.
CTMX is one of the few places that actually gets ruts and rough. They need all the REAL race time they can get.
PW's on Saturday is great. Keep it smooth for the true beginners. Once they jump on a big 50, it is time for them to race.
I'm sorry. Don't know who you are. But running 50's and 65's after the open pro class is bullshit. For the love of got. That isn't practice. That's horrible. The open pro class ran 15-20 laps and beat the hell out of the track. Then the 50's and 65's ran. That's not fun. That's miserable. And my son was injured at malvern and chillitown. When they ran like this. I'm not saying I want a smooth flat track. But if you like crazy ruts and gnarly track then run the A ,B ,C and all the other big bike classes later. Let the younger kids 50's 65's and 85's have fun and run a track that is a little less torturous. And avoid injuries. For a race that should be fun. If this were a qualifier or lorettas fine. But it isn't. It's a fun Halloween race. Let's keep it at that and not get Anyone hurt please.
Get a freaking clue, they are on PWs.
Alot of good 50 and 65 riders have gotten hurt this year. Maybe that's normal, I'm not sure. I am very new to the mx scene.
Not all kids start on PWs. My oldest started on a 65. My youngest only raced 4 months in the jr class before jumping up to the sr class.
I will be just getting back from Florida and have a work issue on Sunday. I am out.
Learn to read. I said pw Saturday is great. 50 jr and sr on a rough track is fine.
I am a 50 parent. And tired of watching the results of Ohio riders continue to decline in a national level.
Rough tracks make you a better racer. FACT
Love Chillitown. Can't wait for this event
Love chillitown also. My kids not going to be pro. Don't care about ruts and tough tracks. Care about having fun. And safety. I would rather see my kid come in last then end up in a cast. Thanks.
