Tot Fest 3 Races

Tot Fest 3 was this weekend. It was great. I got a lot of photos that I will upload in a day or so. But right now I do have a video of the open class race. 

There were two single speed races and two variated races, the top three winners went on to race in the open class combining single speed and variated bikes. 
I rode my white maxi N and got first place in the single speed class and second place in the open class. 

To make my Maxi competitive I geared the bike to max out at 49mph with 13x40 gearing. The gearing was just about perfect for the track. 

I did have an issue with my bike on the first of three races. My exhaust chamber cracked at the rear mount and then the header snapped off. I was able to finish the first race with it hanging off. Between the races someone had a welder and I tacked it back together but there was still a 2mm gap half was around the circumference of the pipe for the next 2 races.

The race starts at 8:00
