Clackline 2009- best VMX race meet of the year for me. Talk about a dirty weekend 🙂 Somehow our sidecar was the only chair that managed to get enough traction around the track. Winning every race was a definite plus to the weather conditions =P
Most memorable (funny or painful) Motocross accident Narrocorte SA Sidecar Spectacular: obviously on the sidecar…
Robert: “Sarah you can afford to take it a bit quicker over those jumps out the back”
Sarah: “ok”
…So I take those jumps out the back a bit quicker, but Robert just happens to not be in the right position on the chair and so of course we go over the handlebars and land on my right shoulder pinned under the sidecar.
Sarah: “quick, quick get up let’s go first aid’s coming”
Robert to First aid: “Nah we’re fine”
(i made the mistake of going to first aid in my junior days when I flipped the 60cc on the start line and they told me I could not ride for the rest of the day!)
We kept riding for the rest of the meet and managed to achieve 2nd Place. We both had sore shoulders for weeks…and still have dodgy shoulders.
