So you have 25k for a bike, but no money for racing?

Good luck to everyone racing this year. The CMRA is a top notch organization and the camaraderie is awesome. You'll enjoy it for sure.

This is a totally serious question.
Not poking fun or bashing anyone.

Other than a competitive sport and fun as , what is the benefit of the CMRA licence? Is there opportunity to win cash at the races or is this just purely for the love of it and it cost bucks to play hard?

Yes but you have to win to get money. I am sure you have to pay when you get to racing the guys that are just as fast as you are and on better equipment.

Floyd, you'd be like Will Z, Dave 1FC, Jose, etc. that kick some pretty major as a Novice! Especially at MSRH. The trick is to get equally fast at all the local tracks! Even Will went up to Hallett and kicked !!

And I agree with Irak.. How are you going to have a $30k BMW, brag about it all over this board, and not have enough money to go race a few times?!?

Personally, I'd love to be able to get back out on the tracks with CMRA. Still trying to figure out how that's going to happen.

For me first and foremost its the Fun. Why the heck would you ride and do it if not...Also the friends we make and riding next to. I love Riding, and this is a place where my riding doesn't get me in trouble...paying for a layers to get things dismissed and other tickets and fees is just as expensive. It is about the same as a season of riding. With some hard work all my riding has turned into some best personal challenges and now I have set those as goals to meet those challenges for myself. I like the way you have to put in so much to get the feeling we feel when riding at a aggressive pace. What I mean is it's a feeling I haven't had anywhere else. When you bump elbows around a turn at an apex passing, you'll know what I'm talking about...sure you can do it out on the street and I will always ride it... but for some reason having an ambulance right there, and a closed circuit allows me to push harder... If anyone knows of any road races in the US, I would love to hear about it... Imagine one of our forest runs sanctioned for a race!! how bad would that be.....I wonder how much it would cost and what approvals you would need to close off the forest all the way to Navesota!

#1 goal is to have fun with all the friends I've made riding track days or racing. I have a lot to learn and lucky for me I get to see some very good riders with CMRA that are more than willing to offer help. Not crashing is always a goal because it's not cheap but it'll happen at some point and all I can do is learn from it. Last but not least I want to do good by my sponsors and do my best to put a good product out for the spectators, family, and friends.

2005 CRF100 Motard (Race)



The 2013 season is gonna be fun. I'm racing on a big bike endurance team with 4 of my best friends (WTF Racing) and racing against many of my good friends in the sprint races.

My goals for ther 2013 season is to make every race on the CMRA schedule and make a few WERA races this year.

I plan to be at every Fastline & LSTD track days.

I've set fitness goals for this offseason as well. I started training a little over a month ago and so far I'm on track to meet my goals for the season opener at MSRH. My long term fitness goals should be reached by Aprtil.

Lastly, I hope to race well enough to make my sposors proud..... And a few podium finishes would be nice.

if you want to end the season with $10,000 in your pocket you need to start with $20,000

At this level of racing it "for most" is for love of the sport and just having that competitive drive.

The contingency part of it is to help racers with some of the cost involved in this sport/hobby.

Racing isn't cheap. Period. However, you don't need a suitcase of cash to have fun. Now when you get to the expert level even in Cmra it cost MONEY to compete with the front runners.
