rallymoto rules

This is Matt I was the Tech Inspector and driver of the COMBO car for Sandblast this year. I wanted to acknowledge all of the riders for the way you handled the crash on Stage 2. Jenna I am glad you are OK. Dave and Ari I am glad you guys are feeling better.

I picked up a few triangles on stages that had fallen off bikes on-stage and I heard more than a few opinions at scrutineering about the usefullness of the safety triangle. I would liike some suggestions on an alternative to the current safety triangle that would be easier to carry and deploy while still meeting the needs of the current rule.

Predictions for this years SB....

1) Mike Gilkey
2) Bill Conger
3) Kurt Weigand
4) Luis Fig
5) Bobby Wooldridge
6) Scott Dorrer
7)Jack OConnor
8) Jim Roth
9) Braden Childers
10) David Jansen- Trasalp Dave goes like hell but tends to have a problem along the way. Will this be Dave's year? I hope so, He deserves a break.


No offense to anyone, just having some fun and taking a few educated guesses
2013 Overall
1 Michael Gilkey KTM 950 Adventure S 1:07:29
2 Robert Wooldridge BMW G450X 1:09:32
3 Bill Conger BMW HP2 1:11:44
4 Kurt Weigand KTM 530 EXC 1:13:28
5 J. J. McCarthy KTM 500 EXC 1:14:14
5 Braden Childers KTM 450 XC-W 1:14:14
7 Thomas Jarret II BMW G450X 1:15:06
8 Ken Anderson KTM 530EXC 1:15:53
9 Aaron Gibson KTM 690 1:16:19
10 Jim Roth KTM 400 EXC 1:17:00
11 David Charlton Honda XR 650R 1:19:11


Tight race!

Scott Dorrer caught me a few times before his tire went. His 390 was pulling away from me. Very nice bike and he was literally riding the wheels off it.

Aaron, Why'd you have to jinx Dave Jansen?

Dave Charlton and JJ Mac both were faster on smaller bikes!

2012 Overall
16 J. J. McCarthy BMW HP2 enduro 1:30:52
19 David Charlton BMW R1200GS 1:37:00

What kind of mods does Bobby have going with that BMW 450 besides the brass balls mod?

Thanks for volunteering Matt! We all appreciate that!

Maybe something like this would work for the bikes.





They fold up like a little pop tent. It would fit in a pocket and be easy to deploy. They can be had without the writing and with reflective material but I couldn't find a photo easily.

My thoughts... BC, kudos for going out of your comfort zone, that HP scared me. Boats, ride of the event. Kurt a close second after stepping it up after the first stage.
Now, yep, everyone could go faster on a little bike BUT this is the ONLY event I know of where normal people can choose to stretch the legs of the big bikes! Too many twins were left at home.
Jack, bring the big bikes down if you wish to compare, I'll gladly go there but until then quit taking money from people to ride big bikes in sand, that is purely hippicritical! Sorry, that pisses me off.
Anders, great event! Work allows I hope to volunteer for next one!

Good to see you again

Anders, this is WAY better than a Red Bull Arch, by far

AND Dave- always great to see you, too... You will think about the GS but you lie! Its so much nicer on an XR

Sorry You Feel That Way!

Mike: Sorry you feel that way. You mentioned my bike choice 2 or 3 times to me at the event too, get over it.

I've done more to promote Big Bike Riding over the last 12 years than anyone on the East Coast. FYI, my Hip issues prevent me from racing a BB these days. Not sure how much longer I'll be able to ride at all.

Good Luck in Mexico.

Jack

More than racing...

Discovering an oil leak on shakedown and working til midnight at the hotel the night before to fix it. That's rally apparently.

Waving to the cops that patrol the hotel parking lots to keep our gear safe at night. (seriously they come by every 20 minutes...all night long...) That's part of rally.

Discovering the missing TDC bolt rolling around in the pool of oil inside your skid plate when you stop for gas on the ride to the start line. I guess that's part of rally too.

Sharing parts from your back pack to help another rider keep their bike going long enough to get to service so they can keep racing. Yep. That's rally.

Bringing a friend and for his first ever race on a bike....and sqeaking his trail bike through service with bicycle blinkers and a radioshack horn... Also rally.
