Thumbs up My first weekend racing

My last weekend was so much fun I can’t stop thinking about. My first endurance race on Saturday and Sprint on Sunday F-40 which I started on the very last row and I finish 8th on my very first sprint race ever. If it wasn't for me swapping my tires to Bridgestone I wouldn't have had this much fun. I felt more feedback of bike and I love it. I'm no expert here but let me tell you about my experience...

The V shape on the front tire makes the bike dive left and right real quick with little effort. Like the bike is asking for the next turn:-D
OMG they grip like glue. It took me only 3 sessions of practice to give me the confidence needed to run 1:47 laps like I was doing with my old tires and them worn out evenly side to side without any tearing issues but what I was not expecting was a PB during the F-40 race of 1:45:9 J whoooot! I’m still doing laps in my head… Can’t wait for the next round ;-)

I would like to thank Alan “Whoop” with Racersinc.net and Whoopies Race School for the awesome service, free suspension set-up help, race coaching and track instructor for making this switch as the easiest upgrade I've ever done for my bike. His expertise and knowledge makes the perfect foundation for his ability to critique and that give you confidence to perform your best! I trust Alan with my life when it comes to tire info, there are not many vendors out there like that… plus he’s my friend.

Since there isn't LW endurance for the next round on TWS (Texas World Speedway), I’ll be sprinting my 600 and the 250 in all the classes I can. See you all there!
