THOSE KIDS AND THEIR FLYING MACHINES
It was cool to see the kids out on track in the 85cc class at round one. During qualifying only one or two from memory hit the finish line double, I watched I‰Ûªm pretty sure Kingsford and Towill hit it to start with.
By qualifying, a couple more were sending it, and by the time the final came around 70 to 80% of the 85cc riders we launching the finish line double.
They actually looked fast all over the track, and out of curiosity, I checked their final race lap times against the SX2 qualifying times.
Considering all or most of these kids were only one week past finishing the week-long Australian Junior Motocross Championship; they had all quickly adapted to Supercross and were already up to speed; a pace that had them posting faster lap times than the back end of the SX2 qualifying times!
