DIRTQUAKE . (But here is a Swedish chop anyway).
This Triumph chop was built and owned by a nice bloke called Rod.
It was bloody scary to look behind and see that front wheel rite beside my leg during the first race.
this is me and Rod lining up for the first chopper race (practice).
There were races for Street Trackers, Roadbikes, Classic speedway and Choppers. with one practice and 3 races for each cattagory. Then the Choppers got one more race then a Final at 9.00pm.
I supprised my self and came 1st in race two and 2nd in the final race( after two Guinnes's)
I can only put my blistering performance down to a sticky throttle cable (every time i went into a corner i couldn't slow to a more comfortable pace as the the throttle was still a bit open, so i just held on and somehow made it round..)
He got the hang of racing and became really quick untill in the final he fell on a corner, which was lucky for me as his crash slowed the chap in front of me and allowed me to nip through into 1st place (untill i got taken metres from the finish flag.
I had an AMAZING time there and now i want to race more.....
Thanks to all the crue at SIDEBRN MAG for putting on a brilliant doo,
