I was watching the live timing earlier today and was impressed with his ride of course. I didn't know anything about him and learned he was a top amateur; won the 250B modified class at Loretta's in 2011. Pro rookie year was 2013.

When I picked up the MXGP game for the PS4 and raced this track I thought what a horrible track. Is this actually just like the real track? From watching that GoPro footage it is exactly like the game. Or should I say the game is exactly like the real ... more »

I have to admit I didn't know anything about Thomas Covington. 7th place, 1:51 is pretty impressive. He was racing the B class at Loretta's in 2011 and pro rookie in 2013.

The latest MXA mag actually has an article on how to organize your tool box. They suggest what tools to put in the top tray and in each drawer.

From all I've I've read the wrist strap hrm's are great for checking your resting heart rates but lose accuracy when working out. Including the Fitbit Surge. So if you need accurate heart rate monitoring for the purpose of working out I would definitely ... more »

I just got done saying her laptime is the same as a Florida guy who is a top 3 450B rider and midpack A rider in the results I saw. And I'm doubting she has more SX experience than he does so I'd say she's pretty damn good and I'm not sure there are ... more »

I was curious what her speed is so I looked up the guy who had the closest lap time to her. Colangelo...he was a top 3 450B and midpack A rider in Florida.

Well I just didn't want that super mini dude's jump downplayed. What a leap on a super mini!!!

Added reply in a thread 180ft jump on a supermini 2/6/2015 6:54 AM

This jump is way way bigger than 100ft. 180 could be a stretch though. I'd say 160-180ft. If you youtube search pala insane jump you can see a dozen or so people jumping it from a bunch of different angles. It's gigantic!

Where's RJ? According to Racer X vault statistics he has 100 starts and 27 wins in 250SX, giving him a 27% win %. 6th overall in wins and 6th in win %. Against this group of riders anyways. Guess there could be other riders with less starts not listed ... more »

Hey all, I found a 2011 YZ250F locally that was in a nasty wreck. Needs subframe, seat cover, bars, tires. 4 hours on top end with receipts. Full Yosh exhaust. But the guy will let it go for $2300. Is done riding and wants it gone. Seems like a great ... more »

Sounds like you already answered your own question. 450 hampering riding skill development...250F too much maintenance...125 underpowered. A 150 or YZ144 is significantly more powerful than a 125. That could be an option. 250t's are a lot of fun too ... more »

I've been going there off and on since the late 80's. Actually pretty significant elevation changes. Like someone said, hard to see with the GoPro. Awesome track!

I'm somewhat guessing here but I'd say if you're finishing around 8th place out of 30 or so riders in C you'll be around 20th place in B. I agree with the other guys who suggested forgetting C and B and doing 30 C or the regular vet classes. If you want ... more »
