just wanna thank all you guys that showed up, and extend an e-vite to everyone else for my next race at adams track on september 15th.

i personally think this was some of the best racing to date, with everyone battling it out, no matter what place they finished.

congrats luke, who took the ultimate final, and to will for taking the 50cc/ slower bike class.

i hope to see more of you guys at the next one!

Great video, and GREAT win!! Sounded like an electric tram pulling out of the station after each curve. Glad to see the sportsmanship of the Tomahawk bike rider after your win. That is what it is all about! Great run, and sincere congratulations Luke!

Dave,
You funny man, my wife doesn't bath me when I'm broken up. If left turns in the car pain me, she whips a 270degree and says, isn't that house a pretty yellow? OwWWW! Trust me, I never have to protect her. And unbelievable advances in technoloty, ala Misty Mate! More seriously, Luke professed a 58celcius running E-motor, cool :!:

Hey, how'd ya do in the 2 stroke main, were you one of the 3 that lapped me? Some guy on long low bike feebly tried to pschye a bit as we chatted on deck. He ran just ahead of me, I pedalled hard wanting to gain and tangle with him. I probably shouldn't of been so respectful at the start, lining up 10' behind.

And thanks Tyler, I thought NoStyle won by inches, but looks like a foot, haha!

Chris, outstanding vid, you're such a sportsman. That ought get some others jazzed about getting out and racing their mopes (Tomahawks). Take your bunch, then our e-bunch, Farfle, Stevevil, and Zombiess' hubzilla crowd, ouwwhhh weee, have us a good time :!:

Looks like I missed a good race. I didn't think many ebikes would show, so I didn't go. Looks like I screwed up.

Congrats Luke. It looks like you've got the bike dialed in. Thud, Farfle and the rest better watch out now. :mrgreen:

I give you not a picture of the boot blisters but a picture of a picture of the boot blisters being taken.

I had the most insane weekend of my life with you guys, thanks so much you all rock.

Mr. Etard- next time you have the opportunity to ride the deathbike you must not turn it down. It is magic. Throw out everything you know about riding with infineon controllers- the torque delivery is butter smooth... and... endless

I vote for september at Adams. Bairdco is a great guy and the track is quite sweet. There is utility power available also. I had more fun at this event than before, even without racing myself.

"First finish! First win!" -Luke

And I'm sure it won't be the last!

That was awesome and inspirational. The guy on the moped was crazy fast through the turns but I thought I saw the deathbike do a little dorifto around 15 minutes in so good job to LFP for keeping the rubber side down. The acceleration into the straights was sick!

:twisted:
Turn it OFF!!!

I finally got some edited video of Luke's Qualifying Race (earlier in the day)
It nicely shows his power wheelie's on the straights.
Also shows his minor problem with the pedal chain loose and rattling.

And of course here's my video of Luke in the Ultimate Race (final race of the day).
Luke did well and stayed out in front of his best competitor on a gas bike, Christophe. Luke's powerful ebike would unleash in the straights and quickly openned up the gap but Christophe was better in the turns and would consistently reel Luke back in.

Pure Bucket List stuff. Light EV, CG that forward, and the torque to do a power mono. Can't believe Etard passed on the chance for a ride.
