Dave and his friend Luke chose a nice Sunday to do another Race Pace day. This time it was at the Appin National Track and was quite different to Illawarra. Thats Dave in the red helmet and orange/blue outfit on the black Honda CRF250r bike. Next to him is Luke dressed in Suzuki colours of yellow on the Suzuki RM 125
Below is a video Luke put together and its a great way to see what the boys got up too. In typical fashion Dave led the way in the Race starts and you can see him get the wheel up in the 2nd start. The boys also got plenty of air on the double up too, Luke only being limited by the horsepower of the 125.
No, the photos are not photo shopped! Thats Dave getting plenty of air! they basically get into the air on the first jump land on the top of the second and launch again, getting higher each time.
Below he is pondering his race start. I have to say Daves riding is nice and smooth, which is a relief as the amount of air they get continues to raise my blood pressure!
Again I was astounded that some of the boys did not listen to the instructors, and again two boys were injured. Surprisingly on the 6 "Whoops" as they call it. In the video they are the lumps in the track, that don't look like much but if you don't time it right they bounce you off. One lad was only winded, the other suffered a broken arm.
After 6 hours of riding the boys had certain worn themselves out. and a great day was had by all! well, almost all!
