Canada MX rounds

Recommended Posts

Did you watch this week when JSR on his slow Honda 2 stroke motored by Huffman on a huge powerful crf450 on a straight away. 2 strokes must be faster in Canada :thumbsup:

Yeah, I saw that too. The 2 and 4 stroke bikes are still very similar in power, JSR just wanted it more I think.

I was surprised to see how many of those Canadians are still riding 2-strokes as compared to the US boys. Interesting.

We'll see how many 2 strokes are out there this coming season though. I hope there will be at least a few. Its nice to see them in front of a 4 stroke.

Those announcers rock. We need them here. Lots of enthusiasm.

Remember, this was last season so that's why you see more use of two-stokes in the big bore class. I know it's outdoors, but these Canada tracks are kinda supercross style with whoops, tight turns and big jumps. Some of these guys are racing supercross this year. Weimer and Willard to name a couple.

Oh yeah, JSR is friggen awesome. He should be back contending in the states.

We didn't adopt the stupid fuel rule that the FIM/AMA did last year. That helps BIG TIME. Still, I'm surprised so many of our guys ride 2 strokes too. I guess training with RC all winter really helped JSR out.

I've watched a couple of them and really enjoy watching it, the tracks are fun to watch and the announcers are excellent. Now if it just wasn't so cold in Canada.

I see you're from florida.

:thumbsup: Not all places in canada are cold. It usually depends on the place and time of the year. Right now in Vancouver we havn't really had any snow. One fall that lasted about 2 days and thats it, other than that it's been a very mild winter.

      Garrett Poucher and Skyler Howes of Garrett Offroad Racing are headed to Dakar!  These US privateers are headed there for their first times but Skyler is fresh off a victory at last week's Baja Rally, won the Sonora Rally in March and this team placed third in the Baja 1000.

      They have a fundraising link set up and could use your help.
      I raced with Garrett at Baja Rally last year and then both of them at Sonora and was honored to pit with them as well.  They're both super guys and work their assess off.  I think they both have good chances of not only finishing the 11 days of Dakar but placing well.
      They're doing some rally training events this Sat, Oct 20 in Santa Clarita, CA and then another Oct 28th in St. George Utah so if you've ever considered learning rally raid navigation, this is your chance!  It's a lot of fun too.  More info on that at the link.
