|Our first race weekend in the exciting new MotoAmerica
Javelin's never actually been to COTA before, and due to
the inclusion of the MotoGP races, our maximum on track
time before the race was 80 minutes.
In various weather conditions, and on the "B" bike which
still had a stock engine, ECU, and gearing Javelin managed
to consistently lower his times and qualify for the race.
|Qualifying 17th out of 21, and finishing in 14th was actually
pretty good for us considering the circumstances and the
There were several crashes in the race, which involved a
switch to wet tires on the grid before lightly raining, drying
out, and then heavy rain with 5 laps to go.

|Thankfully he managed to qualify with only 5 minutes of track time (on
cold tires, too!) because of the delay they faced solving the cooling
issue from race 1 (where he finished 13th).
Throughout race 2 he made more passes than any other rider,
moving from dead last - 18th place to 8th, before running a little wide
and deciding to bring it home safely in 10th!
More importantly, our young resident racer is excited for the next
round at VIR, and we hope to see a lot more of this:

costing him a solid chance at the 8th, 9th and 10th places
despite his race pace.

bent triple so my steering was way off and had some other issues too but
we made it through somehow! Thanks to my team and girlfriend for
suffering it out in the soaking rain to keep me on track! Gave this little dude
a piece of my turn 9 adventure too! Full gas tomorrow for race 2!"

|Race 2 - 11th place!
11th is not where we want to
be, but considering how the
cards were stacked for us
coming into the race, it really
was a GREAT finish.
We were still the fastest MV
Agusta in the race and we
are the highest ranked MV
Agusta in the championship
point standing, so I know
Javelin's game is top notch
and it's my job to get his bike
up to par!
