Exactly! The 10, 12 and whatever age kids have zero problems passing you like you're an old man on a walker!

yep, the little know that you would be embarrassed as to run into them, so , combined with no fear... they will take out your front or rear with no concern about it at all...and they will change lines on you in a hearbeat...
no mercy, those little pricks.

I wouldn't be embarrassed. I'd be if one made me crash for some dumb . Racing is Racing, and I had no problem with them going around me or whatever. I was a 230#, 6' tall man on a 40-something horsepower Ninja 250R trying to outpace or beat a 50 lb, 4'10" kids (or insert whatever small kid's size here) on the same bike, or better! LOL... Not happening!

In truth I love racing the kids, it is a blast...but then again I am a grand father and I love seeing happy kids. Most of them are very good kids and ususally come to my pit and spend a few minutes talking with the old man...the wife always enjoys when they come and talk to her too...when they have the kids only races I am always in the stands or up against the fence watching them...those are the ones that will be racing when i am not around anymore...this is all TMGP of course, I have not been to a CMRA event
