Loser!

Racing has a winner, and several losers. After that, dnf's and dq's.

It would be much more impressive to me had they started in their appropriate class.
It is obvious that the rider is an above average skilled rider.
So why start with the noobs? I guess to make the vid better, had they started with the regular bikes, all you would have seen is dudes blowing by them left and right.

Alright, start the flinging, I can take it.

sucks that everyone got lumped into the same track with wildly different levels of skill, (especially kids) but the one thing i keep thinking of is when i was new and starting to race, even though the fast guys scared the shit out of me when they passed me by stuffing me in the corners, roosted the shit out of me, made blatantly dangerous passes, and just treated me like shit in general, the one thing i came away with at the end of the day was that i could always pick up little tips on increasing my speed & skill by watching what they were doing and trying to up my pace and hang with them.

even though i'm a lot faster now than the scared kid i started out as, i wouldn't have gotten there if i didn't have the "trial by fire" routine i had to go through back when i was a lot younger. if you have the will to hang in there and up your pace to that of the fast guys, you'll eventually get there. it would take most riders an eternity to get to that pace without racing. just my two cents, no poop flinging required.

Typically classes are determined by engine displacement and also age.
Let the big bikes start with the other big bikes...

I didn't even think twins were allowed in amateur competition like HS.

The guy/gal is a great rider I'm sure.
Plenty of personal opinions on this, but I'll keep them to myself.

Opinions aside, when there's not enough riders to form a class, they lump other classes together. It seems that was what was done here.

The undeniable fact is that this guy rides a 950 se like a crazy man. You're all just jealous, face it. . I don't know a single person on this thread that could hold a fart candle to this guy, except maybe Bundy ( not to mention a few who don't post here) give this guy his well deserved props.

Looks like a high school kid picking on the 6th graders, not very impressive. He can ride the beast though!

RIDE ON!
