Well... we got a 39 second time on the Hitch from Netherlands.

I'm scratching my head trying to comprehend how to even get close to that time...



You can find other times and videos here:

Ow, cool.
I didn't even know Kristian was trying the Hitch...

Just to fire up the competition spirit, I posted (in dutch) something like this online:

Quote:
Good work Kristian & Peter, congratulations.

I would like to see the entire top-5 to be filled with people from The Netherlands and Belgium, who is with me?
I think, Kristian is also entering the first Dutch Gymkhana competition starting this year.
It will be quite something for the other riders to compete with him.

When will the Hitch be closed and will we continue with the next one ?

Those exercises do not have time limit on them. You can still post your time (if you beat the current fastest) even a year from now. The point of those is for people to learn and improve. Of course as the times get faster and faster it will be tougher and tougher to beat those, so the submissions will naturally slow down, and people will be battling on another obstacle.

The cool thing about these competitions is that as people try it, and post their results, a nice spread in times and skills develop, which builds up the database for that exercise. This way, when a new rider tries it, they should be able to find time closer to theirs, to try and beat. After that, they can move onto a faster time, and so on.

I personally found it frustrating at first, looking at sub 30 second times for GP8, while I only could manage around 40 second runs. I think it is also much easier to progress by analyzing and trying to beat people closer to your class, rather than trying to go for fastest rider from a get go.


We'll be posting a new exercise each month, hopefully in the first week of that month.

It's just for the fun. Good point about different classes of bikes though. I like picking apart my mistakes and fixing them.

Indeed, eventually you would like some filter options.

I can imagie a filter on CC's, type of bike and/or specific bike.

but the more specific filtering you want, the more data you need.

I had a small informal Gymkhana session on Sunday.

Pictures and video are courtesy of StokedSteve, who came out to ride Gymkhana for the first time.

Really fun and challenging to do quickly. I took out a few cones...but did pretty well. Certainly upped my low speed cornering a good bit and got my newish tires scuffed in good.

Cory was draggin' the hell out of that little Star, poor thing...it wasn't meant to be ridden like that. He was way faster on that POS than I was on my bike.

It was a V-Twin day. Cory on his Star (??) cruiser, 2 newer VStroms and an '07 SV650.

No drops and I saw at least one wheelie..no names.



The figure 8 course behind us...



Cory making her seem like a bike that can handle. How he does it I do not know.





And here is the video Steve put together:

Nuggets.


We also got a clip from Japan for our Hitch obstacle. Unsurprisingly they absolutely smoked it! 33.75

Yesterday, at Lelystad - The the very first Dutch national Gymkhana competition was started. There will be 6 competition day's this season. 14 riders compete for the national gymkhana title.

each competition day, each rider will get 2 heats and the best time counts.

It was a great event with a very challenging, but fun course.

More info, pics and a movie will follow.

Like I wrote in my previous post, we had our first competition day.

Kristian Eekhof put his bike down in the 2nd heat. This, in combination with exellent driving from Richard van Schouwenburg gave him the first place.
On the 18th of may, he will defend his current first place.

New obstacle for our Remote Competition Series!

Pretty fun little thing. Technical with a little bit of "flowiness". Lets see what you all can do with this!

Great thread. I cannot understand for the life of me why this has not really taken off outside of Japan. Local races should be as easy to find as auto-cross!

Can anyone say how well the $50.00 infrared timers have been working? I would like to hear some pros/cons before pulling the trigger.

Best of luck to those of you who I see are regular posters in this thread. In my opinion you are in process of lighting a nice, fun fire!
