Motocross

April 6, 2003 — There are some crashes that are just plain annoying; for instance this one, where not only does the rider find himself lying on the ground but he has to watch all those guys passing him. #067

051-2007-06-03_1191 June 3rd, 2007 — John Verdonk stalled his Yamaha going into a corner while leading Lee Coutts. Lee should have had an easy pass but he made the mistake of running into the back of John which unfortunately for Lee, kick started John’s bike at the same time dumping him onto the ground. #051, #523

Bad line

April 1985 — This was not the best line through the sand whoops at the old Mission track nor was it good technique to ride with your feet off the pegs but novices will try anything once. #202

Where’s my bike?

April 1985 CMA motocross at Mission
April 1985 — When a rider was crawling around on his hands and knees looking for his bike after a crash you know the landing had been hard. Luckily in the days before insurance companies became very nervous there were lots of spectators and riders lining the track to help. #053, #084

Berm

April 1985 CMA motocross at Mission
April 1985 — As I said in a previous post, the sand whoops at the old Mission track were nasty, and berms when you found them, were soft and in the wrong place, so fallen riders had to be taken advantage of whenever possible. #053, #241, #230
