Andrew Gross - WNYOA round 6, Thunder Ridge
June 26, 2013
This weekends race at Thunder Ridge was a lot
of fun, but hot. The temperature was in the upper 80’s and very humid.
I love the Thunder Ridge race because it is
rough terrain and a lot like home. I think that is why I always do well there. It is located just a couple of
miles down the road from the famous Unadilla motocross track, but it is very different terrain. Much steeper
and not as open.
It was hot and dry at the start, but the woods
were extremely muddy, with a lot of off camber turns and there were deep ruts from the skidders when they had
logged the property last year. I got the holeshot but crashed when my back wheel went out going over some
whoops in the woods. I recovered, but by the time I did, I was in third place after the first
I caught up and made a couple of passes,
rounded the second lap in first and held that through the final lap. Results- 1st in the Supermini
14-15 class and 1st overall.
My tech tube foam tire inserts have been holding up well and I am very glad to have them. Thanks to W.E.R. for
their support with my suspension and tire inserts.
Next week is round 7, Ithaca Dirt
