Modena New, York

Results & Pictures:  Sunday, June 3rd

The big "mud race".  Track was looking good during signup and it clearly was going to be in perfect shape by the first moto. But as practice began a violent thunderstorm rolled in (soaking the track for over an hour).  The mudfest had begun.  But nothing compared to the mud that filled the first left turn on the holeshot.  If you didn't get the holeshot the left side of your bike & bod were shot with high speed mud roost.  Honestly, the feeling was one of being hit with a heavy, "flying" substance.  The most pronounced feeling was that of "heavy things" hitting and sticking to you.  By the 2nd left turn you weighed 30 lbs more than you did 4 seconds before.

The first women's race at ACE! 7 riders braved the mud and it was bar to bar action at the end of the first lap.  Great competition and some wild riding in the mud.

The Following Action Shots
were taken by Mike Hoensch: expert rider #58

Here's what the first holeshot had to go through

Imagine being "axle deep" on YOUR bike !

Out of control was the order of the day

Sometimes you just couldn't take it anymore

There were some great jetski berms

Women's class had a strong turnout and exciting bar to bar competition

The double-double before Murphy's

Air Time was rare during the first half

Bikes were really heavy to lean and jump

Finish line rockers

Lake Oooze (after the last finish line rocker)

Blackwell had a great day.   Here's his holeshot

Bottom of gravity cavity

Straightaway after the holeshot

After a few laps you just wanted to SCREAM

Almost every muddy bike told the same story:  Seems that the left side of almost everybody's bike was on the clean side.  But the right sides were wiped out with mud.   It was the first left turn during the holeshot that did it.  Shelled your exposed left side as you banked into the left handed turn (if you were not in the lead).
#878  left side
#878  right side
