#395 MRA Race 1 weekend recap:
Baby steps.. was my motto for the weekend. I worked on getting a better feel for the R1 pushing limits and adapting. The track has not changed much, except for lack of grip to get out of the corners. That being said I ran my fastest laps around PPIR to date, and not working as hard on the bike.
Saturday: Open endurance started perfectly for me and I shot out in front of the field from the front row, it was short lived as the #1 bike (Ryno's R1M)... gobbled me up under braking and started managing a nice gap. Ryan went on to win and I came in second. Earlier in the day in Open supersport I managed a great start from the 12th grid spot and found myself directly behind the leaders Ricky#12 & Oleg#57 I got watch these two duke it out from the best seat in the house, and definitely got my learn on watching some racecraft. I ended up loosing a bit of ground on these aliens, but I still hung on for third and even snatched up the small bag of #bLUcRU nickels.
Sunday: Open Superbike.... this was probably the most adrenaline pumping fun I had all weekend, I got another great start from the second row on the grid and shot past some baddass (#3 this season.. but he has NINE previous #1 plates!) Mr. Dan Otis! I was once again sitting behind the leaders for a few laps, anyway I could not keep the pace going and Dan got up the inside in turn 4 to take the spot (wish I would have had on my GOPRO it was a slim window and great pass) Race of the Rockies was much of the same, I struggled with grip and #717 Ray Thornton got past me on his R1M in both races.
OSB: - 3rd, OEND: - 2nd, OSB: - 5th, ROR: - 6th
Overall happy with the progress on the new bike, and I am excited to see where I can end up once it all comes together. Big
