Woodland, Washington Vintage MX
From Danker in Portland, Oregon.
Thanks for issue #4, beautiful. You were looking for vintage MX? Just went out and did my first vintage MX today on my $75 DT250 at Woodland, Washington with the Hammer & Tongs series (great photo from their site below).
Had about 2" of rain and it was complete soup. Also it was Awesome--completely hair-ball!
I crashed in the first practice and stripped my counter-shaft in the first moto; pulled parts to get another bike going; still got a second place plaque; Result!
Patrick (of the Broken Bone Patches) rode the DT that he rode from the Portland, Oregon to Tennessee this summer (see the 555:Jackassery), to 1st place.
Lots of beautiful bikes; great racing and mud--a very good day.
Cheers, Dan, Sang Froid Riding Club
