Season 2 what??? Yup, I'm back at it, racing again. Didn't catch season 1, find it here -> 2017

I'm not Vital blogging this year (blogs are dead), so I'll be using this thread for everything. Thanks to the users that interacted/commented in my 2017 thread, much appreciated. I hope there was a benefit or entertainment to some users of the vlogs I posted last year. Same idea this year, but with more content. I will not only be racing the Northwest Motorcycle Association (NMA) Off-road Series, but I'll also be competing in the Team Tortoise Northwest Off-Road Championship Series (NORCS). I'll be hitting up some other races here and there, but no other series. 17 races total so far, maybe more.

I'll be racing the same bike (2014 KTM300) again this year. The NMA bumped me out of the B class, so I'll be racing both NMA and NORCS in the OPEN A class this year. Other than that, nothing else new this year. These races are addicting and fun! I went from basically "sitting on the couch" as they would say for 10 years, to purchasing a bike and going all out racing with ZERO racing background. Much respect to everyone who races weekend to weekend, its very exhausting, costly, but very rewarding.

Feel free to interact! I'm light years behind in bike technology, so if you have suggestions or recommendations, lets hear them. Got questions? Ask away!

See you at the track! Enjoy

The infamous Desert 100, where more than 1200 racers gather every year in the small town of Odessa to compete in the 100 mile race. By far the largest off road event in the PNW.

It was a blast, better than last year. They actually ripped the track so it was very tacky, there was a new back section to the track that was fun as well. The trails were the same, fairly tame and a few tighter sections. It was a hot one for sure and I experienced rear brake fade for the first time, so using a front brake only for 1/4 of the race sucked, but other than that it was a good time, fun track.

Wow - Super cool, as a long time OMRA racer it's nice to see what the Washington folks are racing. As our series only overlaps with Eddieville and Starvation Ridge. Might have to get myself up to some of these events. Nice job on the editing too.

Thank you! I'm not sure what's harder, making the videos or the racing.

If you follow my videos, from here on out is trees, trails, and a mixture of motocross tracks. A total of 10 more races I think.
