This month’s feature includes race reports from Tim Hammond, Chris Bailey, Natalie Kane & Frida Östlund and Cory Texter.

Tim Hammond

EBC Brakes are pleased to welcome our latest enduro racer into the fold, Tim Hammond, who is making terrific progress this season competing in the RaceXC Championship.
Here are his latest race reports:

Round Five – RaceXC Championship – 29th – 30th July 2017

I travelled down to London for round five of the RaceXC Championship, it turned out to be a very muddy weekend and conditions were very slick.

I was first off the line and managed to grab the hole shot, the race was pretty uneventful as I led the entire race in my class, catching up with a lot of the class above, I really enjoyed the conditions and felt like I could have kept going at the end of the two hours.

Photo: Tim Hammond in action!I finished first in class, extending my lead in the Championship in the Clubman Class, whilst also finishing 3rd overall out of 70 riders.

I was very happy with this result and will keep trying to improve my overall results. I really liked the brake pads sent to me and felt that they gave a little more stopping power over stock, while also giving a soft feeling.

Round Four – RaceXC Championship – 24th – 25th June 2017

Another win in the RaceXC Championship at round four, had really good battles with a few fast riders but managed to pull through in the end feeling really fit on the bike, even got 4th overall which was a big bonus, absolutely living for the weekend.

Chris Bailey

Here is the latest news from Chris Bailey who is gaining impressive results and climbing the overall score board in the highly competitive Enduroland RaceXC Series.  Chris has EBC “R” Series ATV brake pads fitted on his KTM 150 XC-W 2017 bike.

 

Chris’s latest race report follows:
Round five of Enduroland RaceXC – 29th – 30th July 2017

Photo: Chris BaileyThe Championship was held at Potters Bar, or better know as the Fast and Furious, our first race here this season. This track is a more open cross country style, with a lot of fast flowing track.

After the torrential rain through the night, we woke to clearer skies, but the rain had taken its toll and made the grassy venue very slippery, so we were in for a good race. 9:30am on the dot the flag dropped. Chris had a good start and again secured another holeshot, so a case of beer for Dad. But closely followed by rider 175 hot on his tails, after the first few corners, Chris had already started to pull 8 -10 bike lengths, good job as after the next few corners he dropped the bike trying to pass another fallen rider and this broke his clutch lever, luckily it broke close to the end so he was able to carry on.

Chris rode the next 60 minutes with some of the best bike control I’ve seen especially so as this was the first wet race this year. This had given him a good 4-5 min lead over rider 175, but part of the track was a bog and on the next couple of laps some poorly chosen lines caused Chris to get stuck and lose the advantage he had gained. The last 30 minutes of the race, the chase was on, with ride 175 now only five to ten seconds behind.

Photo: Chris Bailey in action!Chris, on the last few laps just seemed to find the speed and grip he needed to shave almost two minutes off his lap times, but was also pulling rider 175 along with him. Chris kept his cool, made no mistakes and kept the lead all the way to the flag and finished with an 18 second lead. So again Chris took the class win, but more impressive finish 12th overall out of 68.

Also this month Chris entered the three hour Hare and Hound which is run by Enduroland and held at the Ivinghoe track. Chris also took the class win here too, but again more impressive, he finished 3rd overall, his best overall placing to date.

Natalie Kane & Frida Östlund

Natalie Kane and Frida Östlund, the Team Honda MX Sweden Girls, have recently been competing in round five of the MXSM Swedish Championships, which took place at Varberg in Sweden on 14th – 16th July 2017. Natalie & Freda use MXS Series Moto-X Race Pads and Moto-X MD series rotors on their Honda CRF250R bikes.
Here is Natalie and Frida’s race report:

The 5th round of the Swedish Championship is complete with another up and down weekend for both girls having mixed days. The event was held at another new track in Varberg, Sweden. Saturday was very warm and sunny, but the weather changed for the worst on Sunday as it rained nonstop from around 9:30am.

Natalie qualified in 1st  straight away. Frida had taken a break from riding for a few weeks with her knee injury, but despite the time away from the track she still gained 6th pick of the gate, so was a good start to the weekend for Team Honda MX Sweden.

Race One

Natalie started inside the top 10 and achieved some quick passes, found some sneaky lines on the course to take the lead just at the end of lap one and never looked back winning pretty easily and was soon on equal points as the championship leader heading into Sunday’s 2nd race. Frida started good and battled hard with the top four positions, but half way through the lack of riding was beginning to show when she made some silly mistakes which resulted in suffering arm pump making her drop to 6th position.

Race Two

This race was a complete change as it was raining nonstop leaving the track heavily wet in places. Natalie didn’t have such a good start this time, but yet again pushed and muscled her way into 2nd by lap one. This time the championship leader was out front but Natalie quickly caught up to the back wheel and was pushing for a pass. Unfortunately being so close when the leader made a mistake ended in a crash. Natalie couldn’t avoid hitting her bike which was bouncing around in front of her. This ended in a big crash and it took some time to get going because the gear changer was twisted and Natalie couldn’t get it out of gear to start the bike. Finally, back on the bike and almost last she pushed again, never gave up and raced back inside the top 10. This was when the biggest problem occurred that involved Natalie jumping on a yellow stationary flag, which you are allowed to do in all other races but not in Sweden. This led to her being disqualified and a heart breaking end to what should have been a great weekend leaving as championship leader. Everyone makes mistakes but Natalie was very disappointed in herself as the other girls repeated the same mistake, but only got put down 10 positions and didn’t have to face complete disqualification.

Frida took the holeshot at the start and rode a great race keeping it steady with no mistakes, only at the start with her goggles, so she lost some positions, but rode smartly to end up in 2nd and 3rd overall on the day. Frida also competed in the Nordic Championship on the same weekend and won the bronze medal. Frida is now joint 3rd in the Swedish Series with Natalie still in 2nd and five points down following the chaos that happened during the weekend.

Natalie’s thoughts:

Photo: Natalie Kane in action!My riding is getting better again so I was happy with my performance in the 1st race. I was in the lead by the end of lap one and was riding my own race really which felt good. Sunday was a complete turnaround in all ways, I still felt good riding wise, but it was raining non-stop and the conditions were not easy. My start was OK when I made some good passes to make it to 2nd on lap one.

Then it looked like it was going to be another fun battle with Emelie for the lead, but unfortunately Emelie crashed pretty hard in front of me and as I was right behind her trying to pass, I could not avoid her bike, so we both went down bending my gear lever, so it took me some time to get going again. When I did I hit the real problem as I made my own big mistake to jump on the yellow flag as I thought that when it is stationary that I could jump with caution, leading me to be black flagged and disqualified. After the news of the disqualification I could not understand why as it had truly never crossed my mind that I couldn’t jump as you are allowed in all my other Championships, but yes I accepted I did wrong and approved of my disqualification.

Frida’s thoughts:

Photo: Frida Östlund with bronze trophy for 3rd in the Nordic ChampionshipsThe weekend went pretty good for me considering that my knee was still not 100%, but I kept it steady and did nothing crazy and managed 6-2 for 3rd overall and was awarded the bronze medal in the Nordic Championship. I am very happy about this. I’m also joint 3rd position in the overall standings in the series, so I can ride better and still have much to work on, but all in all a good weekend for me.

Cory Texter

Cory Texter is continuing his busy season in the American Flat Track Nationals and has just competed in the Harley-Davidson Black Hills Half-Mile, Rapid City, South Dakota on 8th August 2017. Cory also raced in other rounds of the AFT in Lexington – Kentucky, Oklahoma City – Oklahoma, Elbridge – New York.
Cory Texter’s race news follows:
Harley-Davidson Black Hills Half-Mile, Rapid City, South Dakota – 8th August 2017

Photo: Cory Texter's Harley-Davidson XR 750I had a lot of fun tonight on the Harley-Davidson XR 750. It’s been 5-6 years since I have ridden one and the smile never left my face.

We qualified 5th-6th every session out, but we had some transmission issues all day long. I couldn’t get the bike to shift which made for some pretty horrendous starts.

We did what we could, I passed a few guys and finished with a p13. Looking forward to the next race.

Red Mile – Lexington – Kentucky, 3rd June 2017

Lexington was a new facility for us. Well, at least new for me. I think they raced there back in the day, but way before I was riding a motorcycle. It was a big and fast mile long race track.

I rode a borrowed bike for this race, since mine was still getting fixed. I felt solid all day, but it was a really hard track to pass on and I ended up with a p14 in the main event.

OKC Mile, Oklahoma City – Oklahoma, 17th June 2017

Oklahoma was one of the only race tracks last season I failed to make the main event at, so I was determined for a better result this season. It was 100+ degrees all day and I felt a little under the weather.

I tried to conserve energy as much as I could by taking naps during every intermission, but I just felt off all day.

I take a lot of pride in my training program and feel I can hang with the best of them, but even the 4-lap qualifiers were wearing me out. I made the main event with a p6 in my heat race. I was going to sit out the final because of how crummy I felt, but decided to “man up” and go out there and make some laps. I was off the pace, but I finished with a p12 and earned some valuable points.

Rolling Wheels Half-Mile – New York 8th July 2017

Photo: Cory Texter in action!I was really excited for the next national in New York. We went up a day early to do some testing and to try and work on getting my confidence back on the bikes. I rode another new bike at this race, just to try a new setup. I felt solid all day and finished 4th in my heat race.

In the semi, I got a great start and went into the corner in 2nd/3rd place. One of the Indian riders bobbled and they bumped into me, which forced me off the track. I went from 3rd to 15th in one corner. I tried to be aggressive and made a couple of passes, but in an eight lap semi on track like that, there just isn’t enough time to be a hero and I again didn’t make the main event.

Thanks again to all of you for continuing to believe in me and support me. I will continue to work hard for you. You all are the biggest reason I keep putting on my work boots and lining up each weekend. A lot more season left!
