well the season is over. Im really curious to see how I stack up after everything is tallied.

I probably only did about half as many races as I did last year...but I can see a massive difference in my riding. Im not sure how it happened, but somewhere along the line I completely forgot about the whole "just finish" mantra. Im not saying that Im fast now or anything but I think that my progress toward being faster is more linear than anticipated.

I have a lot of toughening up to do as far as riding goes. I just need to ride more and unfortunately I just dont have the time or money to ride much between races. I need to find a way to have my ass kicked in a Bikey way between races...suggestions??

Your expectations for yourself have risen. It's not about surviving now, it's about beating people.

Mountain biking. That is my favorite training method. Alot of the skills transfere over to the MC and you build strength and stamina. Oh! It's fun too!

Great thread !

Just cruised over and read a bunch of your posts in this thread. It seems we both started
Very similarly. My first offroad trip was on a 429lb Buell Ulysses. The next bike was an xr600r I bought to ride in colorado where I keep it.....I also got a xr650l to ride at home in Fl at the same time. I took the xr650l offroad on all kinds of trails
And thought it was a dirtbike until I rented some real light powerful race bikes at
A resort in Georgia last year. I also ran around a harescramble track during a fun- run last year on the xr650l.... It overheated and I had to stop a bunch of times. ( pinging) the air cooled pig just didn't like going slow in the woods.

I sold it and got an 05 Yammie 250f I found a great deal on. Now I'm racing for real like yourself.

I'll be checking this thread in the future..... It seems that I'm following directly in your path!

My race season is just starting here in Flatistan. Be good!

Steve
