Let me start by giving you my MX background. I started riding about 4 months ago. I started on a CR250 and moved up to a CRF450 after about a month and a half. I ride 1-2 times a week at a local practice track (TNT Motorsports Park). I went to a local AX race a couple months ago and decided it looks like fun and that I want to give it a shot so.....I got my AMA and signed up for this weekends Charlotte AX race. I will be riding the begeinner 250/450 race. This class is "supposed" to be for riders with 6 months or less MX experience. So my question is what should I expect? Am I crazy? Do they change the track layout any for Sundays amatuer day or is it exactly the same? The beginner class is not allowed to "double the large catapult", whatever thats supposed to mean. Whats the best-fastest way to tackle this jump if we cant double it (i assume that we arent allowed to jump it at all). Should i expect to get my a55 handed to me or could i actually do well in this class? What kind of things should i look out for or do you have any sound advise for me? I know i asked a lot of ?'s but the nerves are starting to get a little jittery and i want to go into this as prepared as possible. Thanks for any help you all might be!
