  5. Before we review the five most common mistake that a rider needs to avoid, let’s take a brief look at the physiological demands put on a rider during riding and racing. First, a rider has to “teach” the body to conserve glycogen and burn fatty acids as a primary fuel source. Note, the higher the riding intensity level, the more glycogen (aka stored carbohydrates) your body burns. The downside to higher intensity and the utilization of stored glycogen, is that your body only stores about 60-80 minutes of glycogen within the muscles – not enough to finish strong, hence the need to prepare and train properly (which will be outlined below). With this in mind, it is imperative that the racer focus on maximizing his or her aerobic capacity, both on and off of the motorcycle. When this is implemented properly, the following physiological adaptations take place (which results in better endurance and overall speed): - Improved delivery of oxygen to the working muscles - Lower overall heart rate due to the increased stroke volume of the heart - Improved elimination of lactic acid (a by product of burning carbohydrates) - Increased number of mitochondria (remember in school: “The power house of the cell” In my opinion, one of the most beneficial by-products of endurance training is that it prepares the rider for the psychological demands of racing – especially late in the race when mental focus can make the difference between 1st and 5th place. When you teach yourself to stay mentally sharp, you the rider will be able to make the necessary decisions that will build upon themselves throughout the race. Here’s how. When you don’t mentally drift off, you will consistently consume the necessary fluids and calories (ideally every 15-20 minutes) which will result in stabilized blood sugar levels. When your blood sugar levels are optimized, your brain has the necessary “fuel” to implement the proper techniques that you have worked hard to incorporate into your riding. These proper techniques lead to faster speeds which your brain has to process efficiently throughout the entire race. If your brain runs out of fuel, you will find yourself missing your important lines, resulting in slower average speeds and ultimately more work and fatigue on your body as it fights the non-optimal lines. You can see how this becomes a problem quite quickly. Here are few things you want to avoid to enjoy your riding and/or improve your race results: Mistake #1: Deviating from your regular routine When it comes to getting the body warmed up sufficiently and properly, it needs to be subjected to the same exercise protocols that are used in training when away from the track. For example, it doesn't make any sense to expect a bicycle to be a sufficient warm-up tool if you're using something like the Concept 2 rower in your every day workouts. You also need to consider intensity levels. We don't want the intensity to be so high during the warm-up that is that it ends up leaving the body tired, but we also don't want the heart rate to not rise to a level that starts to produce and activate the lactic acid shuffle. What we see is either riders are using the wrong tools to warm up or they're warming up at too high of an intensity. Mistake #2: Coming to the starting line dehydrated or under nourished When you sleep at night; your body pulls the necessary glycogen (which is sugar) from your liver to sustain your brain functions during the night. Then when you wake up in the morning and put demands on the muscles, the energy necessary comes from the glycogen that's been stored within the belly of the muscle tissue. The challenge that we have on race day is the duration of time since your last meal - sometimes between 12 to 15 hours. Think about race weekends: you're going to be racing on Sunday morning and practice or racing begins at 7:00 am. Let’s say that you ate dinner at 6:00pm Saturday night and you wake up at 6:00am Sunday morning, that's 12 hours since your last meal. To put it in perspective, imagine that if you ate your morning breakfast at 8:00 in the morning, but then you didn't eat dinner until 8:00 pm and you had no snacks or any meals in between that timeframe, you'd be extremely hungry. But for some reason (whether we chalk it up to a nervous stomach or we're afraid that we're going to get cramps) we don't take the time to eat a good-sized meal early enough so the muscle glycogen is already at a deficit before the gate drops. When you add high intensity racing, which tends to drain the glycogen from the tissue very quickly, and you can see why riders have a tendency to fade quickly or miss simple lines – all because the blood sugar levels within the rider is too low. Frequently this fade or silly mistake syndrome is blamed on a lack of fitness, but rather, should be attributed to low blood sugar levels. Mistake #3: Lack of a post-race recovery routine When you come off the race track, there's an enzyme that helps you replenish glycogen within the muscle and the liver called the Glycogen Synthase Enzyme. You've got about 20 to 30 minutes where that enzyme is at its highest level, so when a riders comes off the track, the first thing they need to be focusing on is the replenishment of depleted glycogen. For example, if you took a bit of oil out of the engine after each lap, you wouldn’t expect the engine to still be running strong at the end of the race. The idea here is that every lap depletes some level of glycogen (the exact amount is based on the duration and intensity level) and it's the athlete's responsibility to get the body replenished to perform at an optimum level. Whether its 20 minutes later, 30 minutes later, whenever your next race is, you have to understand that as soon as you come off the track, priority number one is to get that body replenished and to get it rehydrated. Failure to do so is going to manifest itself out on the track as you start to fade and go backwards. Again, we're right back to an empty gas tank within the muscle. If you want to be able to perform optimally, moto after moto, day after day, it starts after each race or workout – so plan ahead and implement consistently. Mistake #4: Racing at an intensity that is not familiar to your body This mistake is not a misprint – many racers fail to race to their full potential by riding too hard - too early in a race! It is obvious that on race day you're going to be pushing a pace that's difficult to emulate during training, but training at an intensity level that's much less than the demands of race day leads to a culture shock to the body. It produces more lactic acid than the body has been acclimated to and the physiologic process of absorbing and diffusing lactic acid shuts the muscles down. The end result is that the contractions of the muscles are slowed down, you begin to focus on how bad your body is hurting and instead of focusing on racing the course, and you begin to make errors on the course that begins to negatively affect your confidence. To offset this negative effect of lactic acid, you want to try to incorporate a couple of workouts a week that is held at an intensity level on the motorcycle that will accurately emulate race intensity. Additionally, you need to make sure you are testing and training at the same intensity levels off the motorcycle with various forms of cross-training. If you want to race at a higher level on the race weekend, incorporate similar conditions and intensities when you're practicing on the motorcycle along with your cross training off of the motorcycle. Mistake #5: Not racing the track The final and biggest problem that we see on the race day is racers shifting their focus from preparation and implementation of a normal routine to who is on the gate. The rider begins to size themselves up against somebody else and then pulls in a past performance of the other rider, and then immediately dumps that information into the race at hand. Your goal is to make the least number of mistakes, carry as much momentum as possible and charge the course. If somebody else is jumping something, they think they need to jump it. My question is why you don’t just focus on racing your race; race every section as hard and as fast as you can, try to optimize every single section of the course and your goal is that you would do it faster and better than everybody else. It's not that you can't learn something from somebody else, but when the gate drops, the only thing that you can take control of is yourself. So, what I want you to be thinking about is how I can get through this section faster than anybody else. Frequently, this requires thinking outside the box. When another rider is doing something through a section that nobody else has thought about, and probably not even willing to try, the results speak for themselves. Be smart, but creative and you will be surprised at the outcome. If you really want to optimize your fitness and preparation, you want to create the mindset that you are racing the course - minute after minute with your pace falling off as minimal as possible. We don't want you to come around the course on the opening lap with a time of 2:00 and then fall off to a 2:15. Ideally we are looking for less than a 2 second deviation from your first to last lap - you've seen this emulated by the best racers. The only way you can do this, is to race the course, minimize mistakes and make the best of something when it goes wrong. Allowing frustration and anger to sidetrack your focus, doesn’t fix the fact that you've messed up a section. Re-establish your timing; get back to charge mode and carry as much momentum as possible to create the fastest lap times on the course. Remember, practice doesn’t make perfect.

    KTM 85 powervalve disassembly

    Hi, I was just wondering if anyone knows how to take the powervalve governor out of a KTM/Husqvarna 85. I’ve bought a new spring for it and I don’t know how to fit it, I’ve heard the spring is in the same spot as in the bigger KTM’s but after I take the cover off the bolt underneath (pictured) just keeps turning. Does anyone know? Thanks heaps.

    Kickstand Mod

    I have a 2002 KTM 250SX. This bike does not come stock with a kickstand. However the EXC and MXC do. Can a full stand assembly be purchased and installed on the SX model if it is OEM for the EXC and MXC? Stand diagram: then go to sidestand at the bottom. Top diagram.

  9. Hi I recently bought a KTM 250sx 2005 and my bike leaks a lot of oil. I made a topic recently asking how to fix this and got amazing answers from everyone! And I asked this question on the other topic, yet to be answered, but I felt it was a different question wholly due to the paragraph it took to ask the question. And if it is answered there, this one can be deleted, but I wanted to know how do I tune the carburetor to run 50:1. It currently runs 32:1 and I believe the carb is tuned for that. I don't know jet specs but I will try to find out. I know you can adjust the jets via the air/fuel screw... I was told to turn it all the way lean and run the fuel, and I understand to adjust accordingly. But I just want to know what I must do to know if I should turn it richer or leaner based on what the bike does. What are the signs to tell to tune richer once I turn it all the way lean? And is there only one screw I must turn? or are there many? someone please explain all of this.
  10. Happy Moto day !!!! Houston's stadium makes for one badass track
  11. i recently bought a 2002 ktm 520sx the crank was gone so i had to split the motor. while its split i would like to add the 5th and 6th gears in there just the wide ratio for top speed.i have seen the parts list for about 250 but when i called someone just quoted me 700 for parts. not sure why such the big difference. looking for any help with this. also if anyone has directions for this would be amazing. thanks again for the help

  15. Hi I have a KTM 250SX and its a nice bike, a 2005. The problem I have is it feels kinda slow compared to other bikes, like my friends 4 stroke 250s. I don't know the exact speed of it. It is definitely a fast bike for what it is, but there is a "spare" tire with a large sprocket on it. Maybe the bike feels slower because of that, and I don't have much experience with sprockets and gearing in that way. That might be the problem. I don't know the exact difference in sprocket teeth between the two sprockets, but I never had the normal sprocket on. It pretty large in comparison to the other, from what I know. I didn't know sprockets would make a significant difference in speed. Is this why?
  16. Anyone going? We'll be there w/ ThumperTalk Contributing Editor @Scott Meshey 141 Dealer ship said they'd be kicking things off 4:30 to 5pm tonight. Hope some of you can make it.
