#WORCS RND 3 LAKE HAVASU ARIZONA
I absolutely love riding and after my second #WORCS race at Lake Havasu know that I need to put more time in preparing for the race. It is amazing how many riders come out for the races. My first race was Open C. I had good practices on Friday and felt like I knew the track but when you take off and your class has seventy riders it is a whole new game. Rocks bouncing off your helmet, your goggles and pelting your body was the norm. A big thanks to #FlowVision Goggles and their laminate tearoffs. Even though I was struggling a little bit with my new #Torque1Racing bars and grips I actually came in 32nd out of the 70 riders. Yeah, I had a crash that set me back but I did manage to make up some time. I felt pretty good with the 68 minute race but I need to get some more work in. I hadn’t had a chance to really adjust and fine tune my new wider bars and had some throttle problems that cost me. In fact my second race I ended up having no throttle control at all. I jumped off to a great start; second on the hole shot around the first really tight turn to start the race and battled in second for the first lap but ran into some problems. I think I got sand in my throttle control and it cost me a ton. I ended up with a DNF; really a bummer. Even though I’m still new at this it is really disappointing to not finish a race. After I went down I got ran over and if it wasn’t for my carbon #ASTERISK knee braces I would be nursing a knee injury. Thanks GUYS! The new #FMF exhaust system performed as expected and yeah, I love the new sound and of course the boost it gave my bike. The new exhaust combined with my #SLATERSKIN air box and #NOTOIL SUPERFLOW AIR FILTER KIT really makes a huge difference. I’m bummed but I came out of it in good shape except I’ll need to put some time in on the bike to get it ready for the next race. Here are some pics of the event. I want to send a shout out to everybody who helps me get to these races like my grandma and papa Thomas, #ASTERISK KNEE BRACES, #SLATERSKIN, FLOWVISION GOGGLES, #ONEAL CLOTHING, #ACERBIS PLASTICS AND PROTECTION, TORQUE1RACING BARS AND GRIPS, FMF EXHAUST and just proud of my 2021 #YAMAHA YZ250F MONSTER EDITION dirt bike from #FACTORY POWERSPORTS OF ST. GEORGE, UTAH Oh yeah, thanks to the great people at #WORCS as well as Rocky Mountain ATV.
