So a fun weekend of racing, I raced the +30 vintage 80's class and came up with a 1-1 in that class. They run multiple classes together and although there might be only 5-6 riders in your class the gate is full with 30+ riders so you might be racing against 250's or open bikes while I was on my 89 CR 125. I finished 2nd overall in the first moto but second moto I got the holeshot and ran away with the race, there was a CR 250 behind me by about 10 seconds at the finish. I have never done that before and it was more exhausting than playing catch up because of the pressure of being out front. To make matters worse I had a flat front tire, I had one earlier in practice so I threw a tube in quick without checking to see why it went flat and turned out there was a staple in the tire so the front went flat midway through the race just to add to the pressure on me! all in all the best race of the season for me.
