Re: Bajamex 300

TEAM ORC was doing great at about the half way point when Justin got off we were sitting in 3RD place. 23 minutes behind the leader and 12 minutes behind 2nd place. Then it went downhill.....

Had a tire go down between 3 and 4 and lost some time there and had a mysterious misfire. Quad completely dies about 2 miles out of 4 just off the goat trail. After it cooled down it ran fine again for awhile.

Ended up the bold holding the cylinder to the crankcase had backed out. We ended up finishing around 7th out of 12 Experts.

Re: Bajamex 300

Team ORC did well concidering the problems they had. If is wasn't for their problems, they would have beaten us. Congrats on your results in your 1st expert race.

Team Teixeira Tech finished 4th and we know that this year is going to come down to the last race in Las Vegas. Its still anybody's race.

Re: Bajamex 300

Looks like points championship is going to be very close! We are 2'nd, Texeira Tech,1'st, and 3'rd? Not sure whos in third now. All the top places are about five points different. Las Vegas 200 will be a great competition.

Texeira, you guys done the Vegas 200 before? It will be a big change to the last two not very technical races!
Did you guys get caught in the rain storm at mile 203 or so in Mexico?

Re: Bajamex 300

I have never done the Vegas 200. I'm not sure if my partner Shane Strunk has ever done it. I think that he did it last year and maybe the year before.

We did not get caught in the down pour. I didn't even know about it until I was on my way home on Sunday. It must have been sudden cause the skiis looked pretty good when we were racing. Did you guys get any of that ORC?

That last race is going to be fun. There is going to be alot of close competition. Very exciting isn't it? Lots of adreniline will be flowing that weekend. I hope everyone is having as much fun as we are!!

Ed

Re: Bajamex 300

Nah, we didn't get caught in it. Heard about it on BITD's radio at pit 6. Took people off course at like mile 203 and put them back on at 213 or so.
Yes, it is very exciting. Esp. for us to be up in the top three our first full year.

Re: Bajamex 300

Thats about as close as it gets....WOW,,,,,,,This is gonna be a great race coming up in Dec. I cant wait, was just reading on the Teixeira website and ORC,sounds like you guys had your hands full as well Ed! Never a dull moment down in Mexico. This one of the most exciting points races I have seen in quite a long time. We will be in the mix at the Vegas race. Will be riding with Eric Pealstrom so you will have some extra competition. Our bike is coming along and should be finished by the end of the month. Gotta fly back a few more times on my days off to finish it. Glad you guys both finished down in Mex.
