If I can find some one to endurance with and do it for cheap I might be out there. I doubt it since I am trying to do CMRA this year.

what do you mean, when the classes start? are you talking about the riders school for TMPG? If so not a problem...the first trackday of the season the events are reversed... so you can do the riders school saturday morning, race your required sprints that afternoon and start endurance racing the next day... and you only have a two hour corner working requirement... they try hard to make it easy on you to get started... if you miss the first race weekend it gets a little tougher because endurance is on saturday... so you go to riders school on saturday morning, do your sprints the next day on sunday and have to wait until the next race if you want to endurance...
if you are asking about cmra you will have to get someone who knows about that to answer... but TMGP has a riders school on saturday morning each race weekend. I forget the cost for sure, but i think it was around $30.
oh, for those who have a cmra license, you are exempted from having to do the TMGP riders school, you can just go race.

most folks forming an endurance team will want the team members to be able to commit to the whole season, including the denton races... not many teams are going to want members who can only do the katy events... there may be one or two that just do katy, but not too many. that would mean funding for at least 3 or 4 trips to denton, motel room if you do not camp and meals...cheaper than any other type racing but still some bucks. so if you are thinking about endurance keep that in mind.
sometimes the winners and those who place are not the fastest guys out there, they are they guys who show up at all the events and have decent runs. 160+ laps are hard to make up when you miss an event.

Yeah as long as there are no conflicts with CMRA... I could probably commit to a whole season ... I would just have to drive up late friday night to denton. I also have a place to stay in Denton anytime I go up there... soooo housing for me is covered.

imo the xr/crf 100 fits that bill better... but rob and vaughn might argue that point. i would say the two most common are the crf100 and the klx110... when guys use the klx, they put a 4th gear and clutch on it...either is a good solid platform

interesting. I'm trying to find a good bike to ride that has a lot of parts available and generally performs well with such heavy people on it haha. I've mostly seen the klx110, but looks like I should check out the crf100.....

Last years races were only at two tracks, Katy and Denton.

I am in the works of getting a bike from a friend. Hopefully TMPG will come out with the schedule soon.

Any one plan on practicing next week?

If I had the money to build up a bike it would be the CRF100. Easier bike to ride a bike that size but the KLX might be easier to get through the turns because of the wheel base and wheel size. The CRF, you just wont be cramed on the bike.

there are a few guys that race 50 based bikes, so bike's that are "big enough" for adults is erelevent it really comes down to what ur gonna be comfortable on.. Im 5'7 165 and the klx is fine but then again we have a guy that races a klx the is over 6'0 tall and pushing 300 and is fast!

klx has a huge aftermarket but will cost alittle more to get the basic preps to race, the honda wont cost as much to do the basic preps to race but there isnt much aftermarket for it

We took my stock CRF150F out and Rob78 and Sid raced it on 16/19 harley street tires. I was on the fully prepped KX65 BiPolarRacing bike. Rob passed me towards the end of one of my sessions, despite 5 less HP, and 100 lbs. Fatigue on the minis is a real factor.

A slightly larger frame, like the ttr125, or CRF100, or even the almost full sized CRF150F gives you room to move and be comfortable.

Doesn't matter what class you run. Just get out there and do it on whatever you already have. TREY
