Mosport Supersport race#1

Ooops, whatís this?



Motor dropped a valve during Friday practice. What to do now? Oh, thereís a street bike just parked over there.



Crew worked till 4:00 a.m. Saturday morning doing the swap. Hereís the bike after morning practice, what a sweet sound it makes.



Michael had to start last. He picked up three positions on the first lap. By about halfway he was in sixth place. Unfortunately by that point fifth place was almost five seconds ahead and running similar lap times so he back off a bit. No sense in thrashing the new motor, eh? Well, seventh caught and passed him back so he had to push some to regain sixth.
Iíd say from last to sixth place in 14 laps was a great result.
Maybe tomorrow heíll get a better start, dispatch the slower riders sooner and be up fighting for a podium spot.

No, it was not my Mollyís engine they used. I did not discover whoís bike it was but I suspect itís the red one that Iím seen sitting on in my avatar. MV Agusta Canada brought two early build F3ís into the country, the aforementioned red / silver and a white. The bikes were show cased at all the dealers and other events prior to the first shipment of F3ís arriving in mid July 2012.

Hereís a great shot of Michael at speed.
