2004 GNC TT Round 3 - Amature Pine Lake Action
Exrider member mjnova (Mike Novak) and "part-time" GNCC racer decided to do some TT racing this summer. Since I had never been to a TT race and Pine Lake was one of the closer races and was known to be one of the better TT tracks, I decided to go to the race as mjnova's pit crew.
With both his TT YFZ450 and XC YFZ450 down with broken/bent mainshafts, mjnova was forced to buy a third YFZ450 last Thursday. I helped him pull the motor and put into into his TT quad Thursday night before heading to Ashtabula on Friday morning. mjnova had not raced a TT event since 2001. Since he normally races the 4 Stroke B class in the GNCC's and struggles to run in the top 10, he decided to race the 4 Stroke B, 265B, and Vet classes at Pine Lake.
When not performing pit crew duties, I was "allowed" to take some photos. I am sorry that I was not able to take more photos of the amature races. What follows are some of the better amature race photos that I was able to take. For obvious reasons, many of the photos will be of mjnova.
Here mjnova is seen giving tips to his good friend and pro rider Harold Goodman.
