Beta in racing

Recommended Posts

Here's an attempt to have a unified topic for any form of motor-sport that involves Beta, and anything related that you want to post or talk about. 

 

 

Season of 2014. is just starting for Enduro World Championship and some other Hard Enduros around the world. 

One of the sites I visit is: http://www.enduro21.com There's not much to read over there but the pictures and videos are usually fresh. 

Post your sources for information about Enduro if you have them.

Interesting prolog:

I know a few people that did this race last year and it was so muddy that you couldn't even call it extreme enduro. Completely unridable with most of the bikes overheating.

Nice pics and nice start!!  There was a Beta thread but it didn't seem to stick with racing.. The EWC is starting with an exciting season with great riders.. It should be fun to watch and it's starting April 5, 2014..

British Sprint Enduro 2014
McCANNEY'S ON THE PACE
McCANNEY_medium.jpg?1395997318

 

Daniel McCanney got his Enduro21.com ACU British Sprint Enduro Championship campaign off to a great start this weekend with an impressive display to secure 2nd overall behind World Championship Contender Pela Renet, at the opening 2 rounds at Canada Heights. Round 1 saw the Beta mounted manxman locked in battle with Frenchman Renet from start to finish with Danny even topping the test times on the penultimate test. Made to work for his win, Renet finished the day 13 seconds clear of McCanney after 8 tests.Building on his opening round result, Danny came out swinging again for Round 2, finishing the opening test just six tenths of a second off the pace of former World Champion, Renet. This battle continued throughout the day with little to separate the riders. The pair would finish the day with a clear margin between themselves and the remaining field.

Daniel McCanney, Beta “I came here this weekend expecting to do well but I was not sure how close I would be to Pela Renet so I put no pressure on myself. I was pleased to see how close I was after the first test and from there I knew I could push and try to keep with him for the remainder of the weekend. I’m happy to come away with second and knowing my pace was good. I feel good on the bike and I’m happy with my riding and to be back racing once again.”

RESULTS Round One
1. P.Renet
2. D.MCCANNEY
3. T.Sagar

RESULTS Round TWO
1. P.Renet
2. D.MCCANNEY
3. T.Sagar

Not at all, mate.

When you register on the TT you have to select some country, and I guess the country list is a bit out of date. Yugoslavia disintegrated into 10 new names over the past 20 years. I was born in the original Yugoslavia, for what is worth. I live in Montenegro now.

 

As for the Romaniacs, it's not that close (about 1000km) and more importantly, I'm not nowhere near that level of riding.

Last year a few guys from here competed, and they say that the whole event became too big and too expensive for amateurs. There are quite a few events in the region where you can get just as good riding with less pressure. You're probably not racing with Jarvis anyway. 

 

Not to stray too far from the topic, here is Cody Webb riding trough an unusual forest:

They just find the hardest stuff possible and ride it until they're worn out. Unbelievable talent.

Like they say on Red Bull Romaniacs when choosing your class. "The sections we will present to you will be impossible for " Humans"

Cody Webb's bike for the next season.

I wonder if it's completely new bike or only new components.

Cody Webb wins the opening round of Endurocross. Hopefully there will be video soon, I wasn't able to find anything. He apparently pulled a sizable gap over Colton Haaker and Taddy.

      Down here in mexico, land of the miracle and home of the weird, ive seen people use the same mousse for over 2 years. They claim that though it has become softer, it remains in place and performs well. How long have you used the same mousse for? 
      Rubber side down my guys,

      I am pretty sure my buddy posts here, FX! I have lurked for a couple years. You all have answered so many questions via search, since I started riding. So thank you!
      I really hope you enjoy this video. I plan to be active here, making an account was the hardest part... 😛

      Anyone have any unbiased opinion if they were buying a new dual sport.   Would you go with the new Honda CRF450L or the Beta 430rrs?   Why

      I just noticed that Matteo Cavallo’s bike has a kicker and estart like how Holcombe runs..
      I guess lightest bikes aren’t everything.

      As the title suggests, I've been debating the idea of throwing in a high compression piston. It will bump the compression in my 2014 KTM 350 XC-F from 13.5:1 to 14:1. First and foremost my main question is, because I live under 1000 ft and usually run 97 octane REC gas, will I have to change the fuel I run or not? Also, will I have to change out the cams to aftermarket and re-time the whole motor and ignition? I guess I really don't know what to expect so any advice will definitely help! Attached below is a photo of the bike I plan on putting it in.
