im sure alot of people missed it,or didnt know it was airing tues.
i cant remember where everyone finished but laconi had a 1st in r1 and a 2nd in r2. kagayama won r2.laconi 2nd corser 3rd,im pretty sure corser got 5th in r1.
bboz didnt look very settled in r1 and crashed out of r2. i hope he can pull it together this year.
im sure someone has the results to post i am just going by memory.
whoever was running 13th in r2 set the lap record about halfway thru with a 2:01.633 (if my memory serves me correctly,drugs are bad mkay).
i like the track. once it is broken in and gets some decent lines established im sure the lap record will drop a 1/2 to a full second without a problem.
im not sure how much of a factor sand is there.most of the country is sand so i guess it has to play into it some.the announcer said it had rained the last 3 days in a row,and it usaually olny rains 3-4 days a year so the track should have been pretty clean(in theory).
3/4 of the way thru r1 the rain started and a couple lads had to stand it up and ride out into the gravel. red flag and back in for rain tires and they were off again. the rain let up quickly but left a puddle in one of the corners that made for some scary wobbles and the end of race1- 3 bike crash (nothing serious).
r2 had about 5 wrecks. most of these were off camera but the one that was not was a back of the pack kamakazie who dove on the inside going way to fast(overcooked it by alot!) and took out a guy who was running 9th or 10th.
im sorry this is not a better detailed report of the race but i watched it with some friends who do not ride and are not really fans so there constant babbling thru the race made it hard to here the announcer and concentrate on what was going on. i will be watching it alone or with fans the next round.
