So just the three for the year.?..small venue, probably what keeps it so nice. How long are the motos.

Exactly. Enter C 200 at an ECEA enduro. There frequently aren't three racers in it.

MSC has a race almost every weekend but it rotates amoung all the member tracks. Typically 4 laps. It sounds short, but if you're racing hard, you'll be looking forward to the finish.

True, I raced C Open at Curly Fern, had bike problems and DNF'ed but got a 3rd. SO yeah light classes work as well

See you there. Bring your kickball trophy.

NECC in Eastford, CT this Saturday. The C-Open class was sparse last time I raced NECC.

Top end wont be back on the 200 till at least friday night and thats only if base gasket i got is the right dimension.

Is it rude to show up at a race with your own trophy and ask them to present it to you after the race?

Totally suffered through moto1 today. Redeemed myself (after a crappy start) in Moto2. Tired, stiff, and sun/windburnt in the face. Feels so good.
