    Bingo! It sure is, though an allowance has to be made being it's his first ever race and what with nerves and such ( I should know---I raced in the BSMA and AMCA for a few years ). He's had a bit of trouble with the clutch prior to the event and put a new one in so the clutch action had to be got used to as well. I know he had an enjoyable day though. My brother went with him whilst I was out with you Yanto.

    i raced paddy.......what a tough event hey! dont worry they are not all as rough and technical as that!

    Lost my saddle on the first lap had to rest my bike gaianst a tree and go running down the track 20 metres to collect it lol

    Last but one lap i had a over over the bars incident with the bike on top of me.....it was in the final river bed i was sliding down the very steep entrance slope and a bike had stalled at the bottom, i had no other alternative other than to squeeze the front brake, as soon i touched his back wheel my back end cartwheeled over my head and planted me head first in the stream! cooled me off i suppose! lol
