Haha, the journalist refuses to believe any of those motors are bigger than 100cc!

You were really the only racer in the lower class (<4 HP) of the Midrange so
you kinda won.

You also could have raced against the Novice China girl class like Nashmoto
did on his little 50cc 4 stroke.

Did you remember who the guy was who wrote this article? He didn't talk to me.

The motoped was under 100cc or the rider was lying to me.

Gilberts bike is now a 212 cc but only supposed to make about 8 hp up from 6.5 hp stock.

We only had 4 ~ 200cc bikes but a few more should have been there.

The majority of the race bikes are under 70 cc.

the journalist didn't realize that just because a bike was in the pits didn't
mean that it was raced on the track. Lot's of people bring a bike just to
putt around the pits or play on Friday.

One bike he said didn't have front brakes had V brakes which aren't too
bad with the right pads.

I was gonna try the china class, but missed the second practice due to some crap sticking in my carb's needle and it overflowing, so I figured I'd stick with the midrange class.

That race was more of a test of the bike for me, anyway. Should be dialed in for next year, and I'll race it in whatever class it keeps up with.

I don't recall who the guy was that did the article. A lot of people talked to me about my bike, but no one mentioned anything about posting it up.
