Harescramble at a (somewhat) local MX track yesterday. The YZ250F did pretty well for me. I was 4th out of the gate, pulled up to 2nd in the first lap, and then took 1st somewhere on the 2nd lap. Things were going well for the first hour until I stalled my engine around an hour in. Couldn't get the thing started, and lost almost 2 full minutes. Finally got back up and going after dropping back to 5th place. Pushed as hard as I could until the end, and managed to pull back into 3rd place.

Overall I'm quite pleased with my results. The engine stall took almost 2 minutes out of me. I also had a nice crash on the 2nd to last lap, but that took almost no time out (despite the wonky post crash bars ).

Right now its looking like I'll have plenty of time before the next race. In the meantime, I'll surely be aiming to revalve my suspension, as after 2 hours of racing, it was beating the snot out of me.



PS - I'll see how long the GoPro captured footage from the race.
