This is how close the battle was in the World GP 2 class this year - a young Toby Martyn from the UK just losing out due to the tie break on total  points. - Now here’s the deal ! - Grattarola was riding the top class up until last year, but decided to drop down this year - obviously this was allowed by the FIM, but where do they draw the line?  the GP2 class is supposed to be for the young riders, coming up through the ranks. - Personally, I think Toby Martyn was robbed of the World Title, as there was at least one clean that was altered to a five, on Toby’s score card - bit of home country help for Grattarolla.
Who knows who else will decide the top class is now too difficult for them and drop down?  - Fujinami - Dabill, - Cabestany ? they are all getting up there in age, as of course is Adam Raga. - A difficult decision for the ruling body.  ( The former class was for 21 or under riders) .  - Check out all the comments from the UK on this link.

There were a couple Factory Yamaha’s in Italy - to me, these look like big heavy lumps with a very strange exhaust design. - (However they seem to fly pretty good)

Just for a change of pace - check out this video of vintage road racing at Goodwood in England - watch how Troy Corser reaches over to the hand shifter on the right side of the tank, so he doesn’t have to let of the gas !! unreal. and all rigid frame bikes.



Sammy sent me this poster for the upcoming WTC National Trial - The Normal poster for our events, is already up on Trials Canada etc - Sam just wanted to let people know that there will be a lot more going on that weekend.

The kids ride put on by the Vernon Off Road Club on Sunday, went over very well, with the rain staying away for most  of the day, and all the youngsters enjoying themselves.
