MSR track video up

#1 Post by pstamper » Sun Aug 26, 2018 10:47 pm

Other post has my ranting. Had one really, really close call. Not sure about this track. I think i forget about how a four stroke can slow down so much just by going off throttle. I could not figure out where the safe pass was. This all happens around 7:30 into video. If i went inside and he turned in early it would have been bad. I took the safer route but did not give enough space. I take the blame but still had no idea he was going to slow down that much. But dealing with liter bikes on a race track is hard. They just point and shoot and let the electronics save them most of the time. Learn how to control the bike first instead of letting it control you. Was still fun but looking forward to a few events in September. Biggest lesson learned is I need to get in shape after knee surgery. Was not winded but a bit sore today. Massage in the morn and all will be well in the world.

That was close and I should of not put myself there. Left was the place to go because it is considered my corner if he has not tipped in. I was thinking he was going to turn in on me so decided I would take late entry in the corner because that was the turn in point. I think he just ran in too far in the corner and hit the brakes. My closing gap shrank rather quickly all of a sudden. The track is rather tight and a lot of L2 guys can not carry speed thru corners with the bigger bikes. I was hanging back all day concerned with it. OH EXCEPT ONCE AND THAT IS ALL IT TAKES. That was going into The Carousel.
