I went to Mt Olive AL on Feb. 11th to race the opening round of the SECCA series. I got 4th in moto 1 and 1st in moto 2 for the overall win in the A40+ class. This was my first time running under this format, this series does 2 45min motos on a 5mi trail. I put myself behind the 8ball in moto 1 pacing myself when i should have been on the gas! Moto 2 was a different story. I knew i had to win the second moto for any chance at the overall in my class, so when i got on the line i just told myself to just go fast lol. So thats what i did! I was in a bar to bar race the whole 1st lap and when we came back around to start lap 2 i was able to out brake the leader in a right hander and thats when i put down some solid laps to take the moto win.
