My bike is pretty much totally stock. Like I said i'm just starting to get into racing and i plan to do some mods as soon as i get some money. From what i've heard, for XC it is more of the rider than it is the bike that wins those races.

my best friend races the mid south series and would be 1st in points in the 16-24 quad C class if his 250r didnt break down, he has had 3 dnf's this year because of it. most people around here are into XC, or atleast everyone i know. my local shop is the quadshop, so naturally jeff turns everyone onto XC. iv seen 400ex's with stock suspention win XC races, so yes its mainly the rider, not the bike.

I race XC, hence why I'm trying to get a soft ride and usable power. The bike is alot of XC, cuz if it beats you up, then it dont matter how big you are.....oh... OCCRA and ATVCCS

I race the GNCC xc series. I was racing a 400ex until I got the 450r, now I am racing it. I have 3 races on it now. It is quite a bit different than the 400ex. I won two races last year on the 400ex and it was basicaly bone stock. Still getting used to the power of the 450r.

I know quite a few people that run the GNCC series

bradley morrison 300ex or blaster sport class
Dan brafford predator c 33+
Steve Britz cannondale first year racer
Jess hamner cannondale C
Rico and his pissed off 416
Spincr4hire and his built Z
and hopefully me as soon as my bike is back running.

and of course Jeff Stoess at TQS running his dale.



How well are you all doing in points and finishes? What class do you all run?

I saw Jeff Stoess race in Florida, he was in the lead and was smoking the first couple of laps. Then he had trouble, too bad. I know alot of faces without names.

I am in second in the class points. On the 450r I have placed 6th, 3rd, and 5th. Still getting used to the bike. I run the super senior (old man class).

Here is a few of the guys I go to the races with that race quads. There are a few of us that races on sunday also.
Tie Hooton runs the 4 stroke stock
Josh Beavers runs the Open A
Sean Beaveres runs the Open A
Tyson Helton runs the 4 stroke C 16-24
Jeremy Stuckwisch runs the 4 stroke C 25-32
Daniel McCory runs the 4 stroke C 16-24

When you get your bike together and go to one let me know and we will hook up and compare notes.

The last two races I have earned contingency money from Honda. WooHoo. Its not much but it helps. I think that its great that Honda has finally stepped up and is rewarding us for racing the 450r.
