I've been out at 3palms before on the KLX110(134cc) and received funny looks from the guys who sit in the back of their trucks next to their bikes and only ride a few minutes an hour(posers for sure). They lose the funny look real fast when you're smoking them through 80% of the track and going bigger than them on the doubles/tabletops. Rider ability definately comes into play!!!

he would probably be pretty fast on any mx bike. . .i think the size of the indoor arena comes into play more than anything in that video. The powerband of that (built) 110 is perfect for that track while the 250F's are pretty limited in what power they can use.

exactly what i was going to say.. The rider has to be pretty nice but if you look at it long enough the bigger bikes can't use all their power in the straight to overtake the smaller bike because it's not enought track (right as he twist his wrist on the bigger bike he has to slow down again for the turn)... Also on some of the jumps the little bike doesnt get as much air so he is traveling on the ground a tad bit longer than the bigger bike as well..
