Race Report - Brian Piccolo Training Race - 4/23/09

I am starting to get behind on the Race Reports. There are so many cool things to report on (and I still have to train and race). I have to update everyone on this non-FPS race because it was soooooo amaZing. Every Thursday at 6:30pm there is a Training Race at Brian Piccolo park open to Category 1..4, but I can tell you that this last Thursday there were not too many 4's there and it was basically a Pro 1,2 race. There was BIG money on hand with 6 - $50 primes, a first place prize of $300 including a monster huge trophy.

The course itself is a 1K course that is shaped like a capital "B" and is very technical and super fast. The starting line-up was almost 50 guys and looked like a who's who of South Florida racing. Within 1/2 lap we were already doing 30mph and it didn't slow down. ZMotion had great representation with 6 racers.

The field was strung out for over 30 minutes until a slight gap happened. Being a super smart racer, Jody helped make the gap a little wider and around 10 guys were off including 3 ZMotion riders. Coming into the final lap, Juan drag raced for 500 meters with Hector on his wheel. Hector came around his wheel to win yet another race for ZMotion. Great racing guys.
