May 6, 2008


It rained, and rained and rained some more. We should have taken this as a sign that the weekend was going to be a long one but in true Team Green form we tried our best to put our green rockets out front. The team all worked well together to keep the machines clean and cool with sand getting into everything.

With the rain falling hard on Saturday Kim Emery the lone female on the team, had great consistent rides to put her KX250F onto the podium finishing the day in the third spot. This is a great start to the season for her and we are all proud of her accomplishments. We hope this is a sign of even better things to come.

The rain fell thru the night and made the track a muddy mess and the most challenging I have ever seen it in all my twenty years of racing, with ruts and bomb holes that could swallow your bike whole. Team Green junior rider Bobby Davies put his KX250F down hard in the first Qualifier came back strong to win his last chance qualifier. In the GP Junior class his efforts paid off early and placed a respectable 4th. Unfortunately in his first main of the day another spill took him out early and forced him back to the pits and out for the day.

In the Intermediate class the Team Green riders showed grit and determination well beyond their years as they showed well in both the classes despite the treacherous track conditions. With Ryan Lillie finishing both his classes just outside the top ten, but with this sort of track condition we are happy with the results.

Hopefully over the next few weeks we can reduce our disabled list and come back at full strength.

We could never do this without our great sponsors Two Wheel Motorsport, Pro Action Suspension, Kawasaki Canada, Fly Racewear, RK Engines, Dragon Optics, Factory Effex and Motos For Moms. Thank you all your support. We will see you next week as the OPC series travels to the popular Walton raceway hosted by the Lees.
