You only posted the words "road racing". That's what I was replying to. I was speaking in general terms not specifically novice racing. That clear enough for you?

Maybe you should stick to the Taking it to the Track section
Average grid size in a novice CMRA race is 15. There are 10 big-bike classes on a weekend. There are 10 events in a year. So that's...1500 starts? And you know of TWO starting incidents.

Yea...I love those odds.

I hate to say it, but I'm actually impressed. The level of arrogance displayed when you, a non-racer, claims that the tiny morsel of anecdote you're aware of (not even participated in...just aware of) holds any kind of water in any discussion is epic.

Too bad I don't have more time and too bad the start for every amateur race held all over the country is not posted

I didn't start this thread. You must feel threatened by thoughts and opinions. The video in the first post speaks for itself.

No, in your case it's a good thing because it wouldn't support your anecdote...at all. Considering you're now up to 4 ever, I'm still in love with my odds. You'd have to find 746 more events to even make this look like Vegas odds vs just one year of novice racing in one part of one country.

Wonder how you'd feel about your odds if you started in the poll position for every first timer mock race.

Dude, I'm not picking on CMRA and I'm pretty sure none of the videos I posted are mock races
