You did good . The first race is the hardest , kinda of a steep learning curve and then some. The more you do the easier it gets and you don't walk like "John Wayne" on Tuesdays. You will learn alot about yourself and the 700xx in a race.The track was very tough but im sure it was better for the am race. There was a lot of deep whoops and ruts. The motocross track was awesome with elevation changes and gravity cavity, I think they used the whole track but not sure, wasn't really paying attention to that. I'm surprised how well the 700xx did on the track plus it was my first time on a real track. I was able to drift the turns and air it out like the 450's. However, I am definatly feeling it today. The handlebar hit my right thigh pretty hard when I hit the tree and got a small limp. My arms and shoulders are just as tired but my back hurts the most partially from previous football injuries. According to the gncc web site, I did three laps in 1:14:37 but can do a lot better without a bent tie rod.
