Race Tomorrow. SUGESTIONS?

Recommended Posts

I have a race tomorrow and it just down poured and the track is under water (exaguration) anyways it is going to be muddy tomorrow and I raced my last race in the mud but this weekend I'm on a bigger bike and I don't have any skills on the wet jumps with this bike and when i say this track is wet i mean it's wet. Can anyone tell me if anything will change in the mud besides sliding around i was wondering how i'm going to clear the doubles if I don't have traction and I can't get enough momentum to get up them what should I do? :thumbsup:

Should i sit as far back as i can to get good traction because there is a double that has a 50 foot gap and you have about 30 feet out of a turn to pick up speed to clear it and i barely get enough momentum when the tracks dry to clear it I need some help bad.

Well if it's that wet and that tricky of a jump when dry I would think not too many people will be jumping it. Just my thought. Erick

higher gears for better traction. if its a real mud bug tomorrow stay away from low gears and high revs. keep your momentum up and try to keep the revs a little lower(ie: sometimes I will feel like I'm going 15 mph in the mud but I will be in 4th, not bogging, but not hitting the rev limiter like a mad man). also stand up as much as possible. when slop hardens up and makes cross ruts and all that good stuff, if you're standing you can barely feel most of it. also bring something to scrape the mud off you're bike between motos. :thumbsup:

Oh yes there will be people hitting it that's why I want to be one of them but i'm afraid of coming up short or casing it.

Well if you just barely have enough speed whe it's dry then if I was you I wouldn't try it after it monsooned, but if you think you can make it giver hell and go for it!

First of all, youre at a huge disadvantage being on a 2 stroke in the mud, especially one that hasnt been using the last 10 years of new technology. In the mud, you cant lean into berms like you would normally. You have to keep the bike pretty much straight up all the time. Also, mud tires really would help in this case. Lug your bike a gear up all the time that way your engine wont rev out too quickly and your tires wont spin. If possible, add a flywheel weight for even more traction. Do not be using the brakes hard because that is what will make you fall. If there is a 50 foot double and you have 30 feet at it forget it, that is a 450 jump for the mud, and I'm sure even they will have a hard time doing it.

nooo I can make it I just need to hit the turn right and not look back and I should make it I've seen 125 2-strokes jump it in these type of conditions I haven't though it's a new track to me and i've only raced on it once before and it was as bad as it is going to be tomorrow but I was racing my CRF230f and they woudn't let me hit it in the first place because of the class I was in

CR - how'd you do in the race? My advice to you would be to take your time and get more practice before trying to clear 50 foot doubles in muddy conditions (especially on an old 2 stroke). Based on your questions/comments, you are obviously a beginner and need more experience. It's admirable that you have the courage to attempt muddy doubles but don't be foolish, you'll end up getting hurt. :thumbsup:

Well I did clear the 50 foot double but it was muddier than I anticipated and i wrecked in the last turn and broke my clutch lever so I was out for the race i was mad but i'm having the pics developed and i'm going to absorve my mistakes so i will be ready for this weekends race.

i dont race but i have quite a bit of experience on whoops...one of the first places i rode was full of whoops and my friend who races in the expert class tought me how to do them pretty good. make sure that u r straight going into them and that u r going pretty fast but still in very good control. lean back, not too far but hang ur butt over the fender and try to keep a steady throttle going through the whoops. a key thing that u need to do is to squeeze the bike with ur legs (this really helps) or ur going to get a lot of swap and maybe fall.
