Fixt for you!
Thanks for that explanation Dubya. That was good to read.
Its always the rider more than the bike, but in a mud race some riders just excell in these conditions and others struggle. Its hard to really judge how a 350 will stack up against 450s when there is a foot or more of soup on the track. Its just survival at that point.
Not taking away from Marvin, but he would have had more challengers on a dry track. Its a better test of the performance of the bike on a normal conditioned track, we all know 250's can put up lap times simliar to the 450's in the stadiums. And Caroli is beating 450s on the GP tracks. So the 350 should be an excellent bike on a longer/ faster track like Daytona, as opposed to a tighter track where the 450's torque would kill it accelerating out of the corners.
It will be interesting to see how the 250, 350 and 450 lap times are with 3 top caliber riders on a track that seems best suited to the power delivery/ weight ratio of the 350.
So you are saying that some riders are better at certain stuff? Who'da thought
Alright, looks like I have to retract my comment after reading Dubya's link.
No, that wasn't the point at all.
2 days left...sweeeet...Daytona is always a blast to watch..
Yes it is and everyone is still healthy so far. Should be a good preview for the outdoors.
Except outdoors is longer/better racing.
I never understand why people say that (you're not the first one). How is Daytona SX anything like a National track?
Much of it is loose and full of ruts, and the back straight is 3 times the length of any stadium track.
It has been getting more like a SX track the last few years, but weather and sand make for a definite difference on setup and endurance.
Just clicking your timing marks doesn't work there like in a more typical SX.
Wasn't it a fuckin' swim meet last year?? :huh
FYI, weather forecast is for dry conditions.
Sand requires power. 450 is the bike to be on.
Dont tell Cairoli and Herlings!
Pretty sure Roczen passed quite a few 450's on his 250 in Lommel as well.
Anyone been in the Indianapolis pits before the races? They inside or outside?
Just curious if its worth going earlier.
they did not have a pit party at Indy last year :huh
