Good and bad day for Mike21

The race in Kemora track started good.The practise in friday in good weather and the laptimes quite good...
Saturday during the first qualification it was raining like hell...i had no confidence in my rain tyres (michelin)
So i was in 5:th place..
Second qualification was wet but not raining...i started to trust litle bit my tyres....my time gets 5 seconds better and i was SECOND in starting grid..

The start off the race was terrible .For two times my frontwheel raised to the sky...in the first corner i was in 6:th place...in the last corners of first lap i was 4:th and in the midle of left corner the front wheel slipped.....

Maybe one broken rib.....few small bruses....i am OK but the bike is not.

I might put a pic when i have empty the van...

Damn!!! Sorry to hear about your mishap, Mike. I have only practice in the rain, Miller Motorsport Park, but yet to race. As a matter of fact, I wouldn't race in the rain at most tracks.

Get well soon, Mike!!!

So sorry to hear that - I also hope you're fully recovered soon!

When a passenger of the foot moves in sight, tootle the horn trumpet melodiously to him at first. If he still obstacles your passage, tootle him with vigor and express by word of mouth the warning, "Hi, hi."
