Yavapai Action

Arizona yesterday.
Your winner, Joe Kopp on the eni-supported Lloyd Brothers Ducati 1000
Wiles, Carr, Pearson, Schnabel. All on XR750s.
Cheza (star of Sideburn 5), Bryan Smith (who made the main on his 650 Kawasaki) and Matt Weidman. The official results say Weidmann was on a Wood Rotax, but I'm pretty sure that's the Wood-BMW 800. And that motor is made by Rotax for BMW, so I guess it is a Wood-Rotax. He made the main but DNF'd, don't know why. (Tead more about flat track chassis genius Ron Wood in SB3).
Coolbeth and Mees finished third and fourth.


That's what 24-hundredths of a second looks like. Kopp from S. Halbert. Sammy won the Dash for Cash (and its bonus points). He was also fastest qualifier and lap leader, so after one twins race that he didn't win, he's leading the championship. Interesting...

Look at the difference in height of the footpegs on Henry Wiles bike.

I'd love to hear the soundtrack for the Duke down the straights. That fence don't do much for me though...
