TMGP Rd. 2 Results

1st - Team RideSmart
2nd - Mad Season
3rd - Que Paso

First of all I would like to thank my sponsors - RideSmart, Andy @ Metric Motorcycles, VISA/MC/Amex , my pit crew & most importantly Tony aka HouseofPain with Tom's Paint & Bodyshop (without whom this feat was not impossible).

Usually within a couple hours of the race we have the scores up (on MH) but since our team finished first and was also protested they had to withold the official scores (just for F7) and trophies and wait to tear the motor apart before giving an official report.

Well I'm pleased to announce that we came out clean and were totally legal for F7N. We just rode faster, longer & better. That's it. I'm ashamed at all the teams (yes teams), that doubted our motor and won't accept that our riding has improved.

I would also like to thank the team(s) that chipped in to protest, thanks for the $100. You all paid for our endurance fee (literally) maybe next time you all will believe me when I tell you "Yes, it's legal." For those that were there, you saw the whole drama, those that were'nt - both Denny (TMGP official mechanic) & Billy Weise (indenpendent) both measured the stroke and piston size, before giving the official thumps up. I'll just say it was a painful experience watching them tear it apart, but it was worth it seeing people's faces in dismay! So thanks for the $100 - for next time, first go practice riding in the rain and upgrading your skills before protesting "me" or a faster team.

Enjoy the pictures -

By the way - I was riding with an injury, had it not been for this, I would have been able to put in much longer stints and put in faster laps.

And to all those that protested us! Thanks for the $100!

Easy there, killer. You guys only won by three laps.

If it makes you feel any better my motor is torn down and sitting on a bench at the moment. :/: Needs a new top end and new clutch springs.



This may be the reason for the protest (not sure, just guessing) ...

"BBR 120 Big bore kit (2 hours on it, oil changed twice since built)"

Anywho ... Congrats on the win.

No need to be ashamed on anybody for doubting you.
Were you or were you not running a 120 in F7 sprints last race?
I coulda swore that was you that came dive bombing across my nose in turn one during last months sprint races.
Glad to see that you are legal now and congradulations to your team on the win.

You have to pay money when you protest?

Anyhow, I am glad you've now won a few trophies, now (IMO) it's time for you to learn a little about class. There's no need for the middle finger, as It would have been a far better picture without it.

Yea when your own friends (so called) that you freely would help around in the pits turn around and protest you they all pretty much gave me the finger at that time.

So that's just my response, but asusal I know where this will go.

Best of luck for next month's race!

Mo, what displacement are you running now? Is it still 100cc?

I've got some video from the last 30 minutes of race. I'll post it up as soon as I get it edited.

If you can't handle racing then maybe you should not do it. Protests are in place to keep everybody legit but, instead you continue to discrace your team and sponsors with your lack of tact. Come on dude. A simple thanks for the cash would have been fine.

FWIW ...

Due to popular demand, TMGP is now randomly tearing down one endurance motor after each race. So make sure y'all buy extra gasket sets.
