    First holeshots?

    by krisrtch » Mon Apr 28, 2008 1:18 pm

    Ok well this weekend of racing went pretty darn good. I ran the 250 Beginner and +30C. But, sigh :cry: I ran it on my CR250 but hey still a Honda!!! Sorry guys! The last moto of the 250 Beginner I pulled my first ever holeshot. I was in complete disbelief. I held it for about a half a lap then gave it up.
    My question is who else got that kind of feeling of (Did I just do that?) When they pulled their first holeshot. I'm completely pumped now knowing that I can pull it off now. That has always been my biggest fear was the first corner pile up. Now that I have done it the fear has gone away a little bit and has made racing that much more fun.
    Just wanted to see if anyone else had the same feeling after their first holeshot.

    Old topic- but in April I got my first ever holeshot. It was awesome! I'm pretty sure I laughed out loud under my helmet, especially since I was racing some kids that have done well at Lorettas! I haven't gotten another one yet tho. Usually 3rd ish out of about 10..

    I ran my first MX race on my 150R two weeks ago. The third and fourth race I got the holeshot!!! I wanted to try my luck at running a Hare Scramble in Merwin MO this weekend. This race, unlike most, used a motocross gate and live start. I knew this was an advantage. Yes, I got the holeshot, but lost it shortly thereafter. In fact, I finished 10th out of 11, but I had a great time for my first Hare Scramble on this bike. Holeshots on the 150R are easy when racing 85 and 100 cc two strokes to the first turn.
