From MXA . Thats awesome ... I wonder why Dowd never races the World Vet. He would probably clean up there.

Oops , I guess I should look at the homepage here more. The story is there too. Sorry.

That's good to hear. The return of the legend against some stiff competition.

I think , but may be wrong, that to race the vet championships he would have to retire from Professional National MX. Just like LL's. I don't think you can carry a national # and race either LL's or the Vet nationals.

Possibly. It would be cool to see Emig, McGrath, Lusk etc. do the over 30 class .

A class of '96 reunion race would be cool, I'd go see that.

|

Cool. I hope he does well, I get pretty excited for stuff like this.

From what I saw on here about a month ago , the old Dogger had lost a lot of weight and was looking pretty good on a bike! Awesome to see someone like him getting back into the racing stuff again. Always been one of my hero's!

And there goes Jeffro. One of God's own prototypes. A super high-powered mutant of some kind never even considered for mass production. Too weird to live, and too rare to die.

Ezza is Da man!

The only rule for the pro class at the vet nationals is that you meet the age requirement,if you want to race the nationals and the vet nationals there is no rule to stop you and why would there be? Now LLs is a whole different deal.

Unless Ronnie doesn't have the fitness to go the distant, I can't see how Dubach could beat a world class champion like RL? Wasn't Dubach just an average pro?
On the other hand. DD has been racing all this time so RL may be real rusty...but my other hand says RL is one of those guys with soooo much talent the time off will be irrelevent and he will check out. I hope so. Would love to see that effortless stye back in action.

Dubach OWNS Glen Helen. Unless he's been to busy working to ride he is always very tough there. Should be a good test for the new slimmed down Ronnie.

I wanted to go to watch but too busy today. Who's gonna phone in the play by play?

Dubach has won this event like 15 times...he just hauls at this race. And Lechien used to be the man....he was on that cookie diet and lost a lot of weight. He said he has been riding for a whole year to get ready for this race. Should be a good race

Cool!He's still got that awesome style.He's doing some grudge match race with Guy Cooper overseas in early Dec. too.

Always been a Dogger fan , I was at steel city when he broke his femur, i was young but he rode so effortlessly!

|

11/6/2010 3:33 PM

Dubach beat him by a pretty good margin both motos but had some pressure from Gordon ward both races. Dubach, Ward, nicholls, lechien was the order the second moto and I believe the first as well.

If Ron takes it seriously next year, you think he has the speed to beat Doug?

Jack hole!

Nice shot. I Love the old JT stuff.

11/6/2010 8:08 PM

There always one in every post....Weege isn't blonde anyway, maybe Jim Holley?lol
Gotta say the Yamaha's look much better yellow, especially combined with the all white JT gear. Johnson looked great too, sinasalo I think, the pure colorways stand out. I liked supermouth in his time but find him awfully irritating now...times change is all.

The Dogger was the smoothest rider on the track during his motos. Not the fastest, Dubach and Gordon Ward had him covered there. But Dogger's style is pure art to watch, very cool!

Who all is out here? I'm staying at the track tonight; will be running around with cameras and a laptop tomorrow. I'll keep this place updated on the 30+ race tomorrow, if you guys are interested. Ryan Hughes should be quick out here, I was watching him on Friday putting on his riding school.
