Well it finally happened. TVRC had the
first race of the spring series on April 12th,
2015, no April Fooling. It was at River
Valley Motocross Park near Newark, TX.
There had been four other scheduled races but they were all
cancelled/postponed due to rain, rain and more rain.
However, this Sunday was different.
The clouds started gathering above River Valley and
began to hang low as racers started to arrive Saturday.
The more attendees that came, the more clouds
came too. The clouds were determined not
to be out-done, though. By Sunday
morning, a total of 96 racers signed-up and the weather
worked up all the precipitation it could.
It wasn�t much but we all got spit on
for about a half an hour during some of the first motos.
It was like the weather knew it
couldn�t beat the old-school motocross spirit of run what
you brung-blood, mud or shine. So
the clouds parted and nearly disappeared.
The rest of the day was glorious! Every
racer was a winner that day because they finally got to
There were a few more nice surprises Sunday. David
Lux� track was run in reverse and about 3 sections were
re-routed to be more vintage friendly.
The dirt was beautiful. It wasn�t
too dry or too wet.
It was primo-braaaaplio loam. The
track conditions just could not have been any finer.
About a half-dozen new riders to TVRC raced on this
beautiful track with us. The riders came
from nearby and afar.
The long-distance racer award goes to
Greg Davidovich�s friend, Chris W.
He came all the way from the Chicago area.
He earned himself a 1st place in Vintage
B. We hope he returns and races often.
Another surprise in the air was the 100 bumble-bee
buzz. Randy Owens brought his newly
purchased 82/83 YZ100, and Michael Keating arrived up from
Houston with his 79 RM 100 he just finished building.
Keating punished the track for no good reason other
than his own personal enjoyment. I bet he
was the first PVMX racer to basically clear the finish line
table-top on his old school 100. These
racers and others should make the 100cc race in Jefferson
very fun and noteworthy for both rider and spectator alike.
The throttle grip fore-arm syndrome plagued several
people. That�s what too much rain will
do to a finely tuned athlete. I heard
about every third or fourth person mentioning tight muscles
or pumped up ones. I was no exception.
Luckily there were no serious injuries.
I�m not a very good looking trophy girl but I enjoyed
passing out trophies last weekend for Tony.
I met a few more new members/friends which is always
cool. If you see me, feel free to
introduce yourself. I�d appreciate that.
Monday morning most of us were back to work and the
downpours returned. Let�s hope for the
best for Diamond Don�s race and see you soon there!!!
