It was one of the most accident ridden races that I have been to on the Peak. We were scheduled to run around noon and probably got going 2 hours late because of all the crashes on the course.

I got a bad start and had to fight around one guy and then by the slimest of margins avoided crashing into another racer who spun out on the asphalt in front of me.

The bike ran well and handled great...the fat rider didn't do so good...my thumb started giving out about the halfway point and towards the end I was using my left hand for the straights... :thumbdown:

Anyway...got to the top...good clean run...finished the race and that was about what I was shooting for...

Finishing Times

GREAT group of guys in the 450 production class...had a TOTAL BLAST!!!!

Some pics from the staging and the top...









Plus a little eye candy roaming around all day...needless to say...I didn't get an "umbrella girl"... :banghead:



I want to thank Mixxer for the great head and Eric (tersejr) and Cory in CO springs for the help tuning...I will be back next year for sure! I have a goal of eventually making it into the top 3...that may take a couple of years....

Congrats Clutch! Glad to see you made it through the race and finished. I think it would be a blast to run that race. Maybe someday...

Thanks for all the cool pics... and have a safe trip home.

John Stallworth has been running that for years... He used to build some wicked banshee hybrids and walk away with the wins.

All you can ask for is to finish and not crash...Sounds like fun but nah.

You're famous Blaine, they had a big picture of you crossing the finish line in todays paper. Now that we've both made it to the top (don't ask me how I made it) we can let it all hang out next year.

Stallworth separated from Nmotion, he has his own company now. www.bigboremotors.com

Troy,

Which paper? Can you send me a copy (link would be fine too!).

Thanks!

Great race BTW!

Far be it from me to impose...but maybe you should get some straps on your loading ramps! :thumbup:
