Round 2 - Clay Pigeon race report.
Our visit to Clay Pigeon didn't go to plan , bike trouble and the weather did not help.
Junior LC40 Elite
Ryan struggled all weekend to keep heat in his front tyre on his LC40 Elite Mini Moto which sadly led to him crashing in both qualifiers , losing the front and bruising his side and wrist , he was absolutely gutted , he was flying in warm up before the race and was the fastest but still his front type was lukewarm to touch , Ryan got bogged down at the start but managed to overtake a few and was catching up but on lap 2 he crashed with his front end giving way , and a cold tyre , cleaned him up and put a wet tyre on the front to see if that would help for race 2 which it did but was only warm not hot like it should have been , race 2 bad start being on the corner but improved on his lap times and no crash , Race 3 boxed in on the start giving away places again but finished with no crashes again and tyre only warm again .
RACE 1 : DNF front end crash
RACE 2 : 8th Improvement in lap times
RACE 3 : 9th Battled hard
Overall Ryan finished 11th for the weekend
A bit disappointed but Ryan still smiling and that's what maters.
On the Mini GP50 no crashes and improving lap times but the bike had a few issues with power , tried everything but it was gutless and everyone passing Ryan on the straights , his corner speed was fantastic but its lacking something . Ryan still has work to do on it but he doesn't get much track time due to the cost . Ryan never gives up and always positive , as long as he's still smiling it make it so worth while .
RACE 1 : 15th
RACE 2 : 15th
RACE 3 : 17th
Overall for the weekend Ryan finished 17th .
Had the bike on the dino and only pushing 4hp so yes very gutless , its getting stripped down and there going through it with a fine tooth comb and fingers crossed will be back up and running for the next round in 2 weeks time at Tattershall .
