Many thanks for the videos everyone. Making jury duty somewhat enjoyable
I talked to a couple of guys from the CVOTC around sections 2 and 3 I think on Sat, they suggested I come down to the axton event. I asked them if this was at Lake Sugartree or whatever Gary Baileys old motocross track was called and they said it was at a members horse farm and it would be a really good place to check it out. I have a followup interview for a job thursday morning, so hopefully I get a job offer and if so I will be able to have a little cash for a trip to axton
LineAway !!!, Nice meeting you, that event was the cats ass !!
It was not such an easy task being a checker, there is a fine line between stop and what we had allowed, so anyone who says that some stopped or some did not, well I hope they step up to the plate and volunteer next.
we kept our section as even as possible, I only had 1 minder give me shit, but I also had the crowd behind me on my call...........
Sorry, I won't be checking at any no-stop event. Apparently, I don't understand it.
NW Cycle, you did quite well as I watched. The most positive thing at your section was the change between days to take out the hopping and make the section BIGGER! I could not believe my eyes as it was Bou that failed at the change!!
Yes, I saw one score you gave that should of been a five. I too called one later in the day a 3, when it should of been an easy 5 to call. Hard to take them back afterwards!
I thought scoring turned out to be quite easy. And I would do it again!
Are you serious?
You witnessed two easy bad calls at a World Event and then say that scoring was easy!
Cripes, we complain when a ten year old kid blows a call at our meets!!
Other than one of the last sections on Sunday, I thought the scoring went well. I was a bit worried that maybe the international crowd might have thought it was too leniant, but as lineaway and nwcycle have stated, they were calling it as instructed. After searching out numerous news stories I dont see any trend of referring to the scoring at the USA event being suspect. I am clearly just wondering out loud when I bring it up as this was my first event of any level to witness, so obviously I am totally without any merit to judge the vets who stepped up and checked, but was curious as to what is the norm.
Thanks to those who stepped up to the plate, and hopefully by the next time the FIM comes over the pond I have enough experience to volunteer my time
Both calls went to the riders! When was the last time you saw a rider protest a sold break in their favor?
I never complained. The 10-year-old kid is rarely if ever really paying attention, so when he askes me at the end of the section "What did you get?" I always reply "What did you see? Nothing? Then that's my score!"
You trained me well on that one!!
Cleans for everybody!!!
Ha! Ha! Only for you Gordy. They both actually had a three instead. And to add to your confusion, you can actually give out three fives per loop in one section! One for the section itself, one in the corridor and one for pissing off/ignoring warnings of the checker.
See how easy this is. Just as soon as we gave out one yellow card, every rider all of a sudden knew the rules and followed them exactly as they should.
What is one in the corridor? When either the minder or rider get caught in the section?
The corridor is a set of gates three bikes long at the start of the section. Once a rider enters he is committed to ride that section. If he pulls out it is a five, also at that point no one else can work on the bike. I think it was Cabby who fell while in line Saturday, pretty sure it was a no score crash!!
GG, Think that was section 11 in your video. 10 had the big undercut as the second gate.
WB, Axton is a blast. We'll be in Skipwith next weekend, which may be closer to you. Log onto the CVOTC website and check them both out.
We stayed and rode TTC all day Monday. Had 6.5 hrs of engine time on the hour meter. What a crazy nice place.
Thats awesome you guys stayed and got to play around there.
I very well may be at Skipwith as I got a job offer today so my 5 month run of being unemployed is almost over .
I am hoping to get my fork seals replaced and get the front suspension back to square as well as find a way to haul the bike down there so I can participate in the NOV class. I was trying to recruit one of my buddys for a ride along tonight
I laid out 6 sections at Skipwith with the Trials Master of the event a few weeks ago. TM is laying out the last 2 this weekend.
Come on out...You'll have a blast. There's even a stadium section.
...and most importantly, congrats on the new job!!
