The Editor’s Beat

voted in my first presidential election this year, deciding that I could finally make an educated vote after nearly 10 years of being eligible to, and so I made a decision. What a relief! oting is not just a privilege; it’s an act that passes down from one generation to the next. My father voted in FTR elections. He was also elected as Enduro Chairman at one point and served as the VP of CFTR, and I admire him for giving back to this organization. o, I hope you don’t miss your opportunity to vote in the FTR election this year. The ballot can be found in the back of the magazine, but these days, all you have to do is send an email. Because, as a member reading this, you belong to something great, and you should honor this organization by taking a few minutes to vote. hope you enjoy this magazine as it’s packed with content from the members. Keep those letters coming and check out my article about the Croom Enduro later in this issue. A big thank you to everyone who posts pictures on the forum. You guys make my job easier! See you at the races! - JS

“Just Thinking”

,

ello amily This has to be the weirdest race seasons I can remember. Here we are in November and only have a few events under our belt. No doubt this rain has put a crimp in our racing.

However, though I was unable to attend the new motocross venue called Mesa Park, I did hear that round two of the Florida Trail Riders Motocross Series was fantastic! They had a large crowd not only for the racing but also for the free evening concert. Rick Dreggors (our FTR Motocross Chairman) and his committee are doing a great job. Keep us the good work, Rick!

The next race is round two of the FTR Hare Scrambles series, which has already been rescheduled once due to the weather. The big question is...will it happen this weekend? I think it will. If you have never been, the Daytona Dirt Riders always do a great job. I look forward to seeing them soon. Speaking of Hare Scrambles, I want to say kudos to the club members of the Central Florida Trail Riders (CFTR). That first event was spectacular. I don’t know if one could have ridden in a more diverse Florida off-road event. That Sunday I rode in a little mud, whoops, deep sand, up hills, off-cambers, roots, fast long straights, flowing paths, ruts... everything you could possibly ride in a race. CFTR did an incredible job. I absolutely loved it. I could have gone four laps but my knees were saying no. The heart was willing but the knees were weak. Nevertheless, I was wearing a smile the whole way. Great job, folks! Photo of Andy blessing the racers in 2011

G2 Lastly, we are in the month of November. It is that time of the year where we take one day, the fourth Thursday of this month, and celebrate what we call, Thanksgiving Day. My earliest recollection of the Thanksgiving season is learning to draw a turkey by using my hand. The thumb and palm would serve as the turkey’s body while my fingers would become his feathers. My second recollection was performing the “First Thanksgiving” play at my elementary school. Everyone would participate. You would serve as either an Indian or a Pilgrim. It was our opportunity to be “super stars of the stage” by reciting our four or five word sentences. Those were the “good-ole-days.”

Today, many schools tread lightly around the subject of Thanksgiving. Some say it is too controversial. It has Indians, (which is politically incorrect to say), and “God stuff” in the story. Nevertheless, though our culture may change, and even if others attempted to rewrite our history, the famous story of the long, hard struggle of those who came before us is and will always remain true. In the next few weeks, let me encourage you to read the story that has been long forgotten. How those 102 individuals, in 1620, landed on our shores in the dead of winter struggled to survive. How over half of them never saw the spring of 1621. And, even in such distress, they were thankful. When I think of that, I cannot help but see myself pale in comparison to them.

When I pause to look at what I do and what I have, I have no right to complain. Lord, thank You for my blessings. Thank You for my family. Thank You for my friends.

I’ll see you on the line, Your friend, Andy Dickson, FTR Chaplain, Super Senior A #121


The View FromBeat Row#8 The Editor’s A column Kayla Vawter, #331

Over the last several months, I have had the pleasure of working out at Clear Springs with the Sunrunners Club to put on the best Hare Scrambles this year and let me just note that I am exhausted! But what a course and many surprises they have in store will pay off in the end. Let me just say to those who are not in a club, go out and join one. If you are unsure of which one is a good fit for you, touch base with our Area Directors or the clubs and go out and lend a hand. It is definitely a rewarding experience.

H

ello All! Race season is finally here and it’s crazy to know that by the time you receive this, we will have only three Hare Scrambles in. I had to change up my column title due to a rule change that came into effect this season, which moved me a row back from 7 to 8 But, have no fear, I will still be here!

*

Along with our races being spread out and working on a course, I am planning on running for the Secretary position again. So please get out and vote for not only Secretary (VOTE FOR KAYLA) but the candidates for President and our Area Directors. Well I gotta run but until next time, keep those chains tight! Kayla is a two-time Quad Women Hare Scrambles Overall Champion and Hare Scrambles Quad Rider Representative. She also serves as FTR Secretary. Her husband, John, races Quad AA. They are both #331.

Military members Paul Ladouceur:

Our family has been racing FTR since 2001. Justin started racing in 2004 on a KTM 65 and racing a Honda TRX 90 Quad in the Quad Scrambles series. After the 65, he concentrated more on the quad side from then up until last season where he rode Quad B Open. He decided right after high school that he wanted to join the Navy where his job will be a CTT (Cryptology Technician.) He is very excited, although it was hard on his mother and myself. We could not be more proud of his decision. He left Oct 22, 2012 for Boot Camp in Great Lakes, IL. Thank you, Justin, and thank you to all of the men and women who serve this country. Happy Veteran’s Day!

A race report by Lydia Greiner

C

losing my eyes, I dreamt of the gate drop, the sound, smell and feel of racing my dirt bike, the rhythm of hitting a set of whoops, the pulling of my bike out of a corner, the intensity of the first turn. When I grew up, I wanted to race. There are tons of kids who have the same wishes and dreams; at some point, I would argue, pretty much every 65 or 85 rider wants to go pro.

of our close friends and competitors on the track due to racing accidents and at Mini O’s another one of Florida’s finest, Nick DePalo was paralyzed during a race. Ernesto Fonseca, a professional Supercross racer too was left in a wheel chair following a crash during training. These accidents woke many riders and families to the dangers of our great sport but it also signaled the need for a change in the world of motocross: kids need a back up. In an interview after his accident that I found, the first thing Fonseca planned to do after recovering from his accident was to get his high school diploma. No matter how good of a racer you or your child is, accidents unfortunately happen, most not this grave or life changing but regardless, the human life is so delicate that it can be rattled and changed in the blink of an eye. These accidents shook the motocross community and it was soon after that everyone began wearing the Leatt and other neck braces.

For the life of me, I didn’t understand why some kids were allowed to be homeschooled so that they could ride all the time yet my parents wouldn’t let me. It didn’t seem fair but I was OK with it because they took me riding after school and racing on the weekends (including some long weekends to travel for racing, too.) In retrospect, my parent’s decision to keep me in a formal school setting was probably one of the most beneficial things up to this point in my life. Come early May, I’ll be walking across the stage at the University of

South Florida Sun Dome to proudly accept my bachelor of arts degree at 21 years old. The last few years have opened my eyes to both a reality of motocross and a whole new world.

Through high school, my dream was to race professionally in the WMA (Women’s Motocross Association) and somehow go to school and get my degree. I thought it was smart to have some sort of back up for my life after racing; after all, the oldest pro racers I could think of at the time had been Mike LaRocco, John Dowd and Kevin Windham - people just didn’t race forever. Ricky Carmichael was planning on retiring in his late 20s, and women didn’t make anywhere near the money men did…I needed to have something to do after racing. And 2006 was a hard year for those in Florida motocross. Tragically, we lost two

It was not only the potential of a life changing injury or accident that encouraged me to continue my studies but it was also economics. Graduating high school in the spring of 2009 allowed me to witness firsthand the difficulties of the recession on the motorcycle industry. Many factories were cutting racer support programs, tracks were closing, bike shops weren’t as able to help out local racers and business was just difficult. I was fortunate to find a job shortly after high school working in the parts department at Love Motorsports, a new local motorcycle shop that wanted to make a difference across the board: better customer service, better deals and more inventory and selection than anywhere. It was exciting to see someone putting so much effort into a business in such volatile economic conditions. I was blessed to have a job and, after working with them for more than three years, I am still very happy to be a member of the Love family.

Making money was like a screeching alarm clock, waking me up yet again to another reality: motocross is expensive! Without my job and all of the help and support that I have received from Love, getting to the track and being able to race would be excruciatingly more difficult. Being a kid, I never appreciated all of the sacrifices that my parents made taking me racing every weekend and making sure I had time to practice - I’ve always been thankful for all that they do but now I have a deeper appreciation for them. Having a job made me realize that I need to stay in school to get a great job later on and be able to pay for my own racing and to take my own kids racing (MUCH further down the road.) Sure, some kids may say, ‘I’ll go pro and make plenty of money’ in a perfect world. There are simply no guarantees in life: you could have all of the natural talent in the world or be the most dedicated; you could have

strong family support or even national titles but, at the end of the day, there are only a handful of men and even fewer women who can make a living racing motocross. It is a dream, a good dream that I would NEVER discourage anyone from pursuing; however, it needs to be done with a backup plan. Please parents and kids: put as much energy into your education as you do your racing. I still race, I still dream of racing motocross professionally but right now I am a student and I am dedicating myself to my studies. School has opened my eyes to another world. Motocross is my love and passion but it isn’t the only thing in life. Learning is actually fun and enjoyable, and getting up in the morning and getting ready to go to class is exciting. It is a completely different world than the motocross track, but it is equally as exciting when you find something you’re passionate about and, for me, that’s history. Part of what is fun about motocross is that it is unique and not everyone can do it. For me, studying history is very similar: it is nothing like high school history but rather it teaches you an entirely new skill set - kind of like learning to ride on a different type of dirt - like hard packed or sand.

The last six weeks of school have been the most difficult in my educational career. I have been taking more than a full schedule of upper level courses and a prep course for the LSAT (Law School Admissions Test.) I was in the classroom six days a week before including all of my homework time. Some days my classes were from 9:30 in the morning until after 10 at night. All I wanted was my dirt bike. I pushed through, though, and am one step closer to law school (this is why education is my topic this month.) Even though I wanted to ride so badly I almost cried, I knew that putting my head down and getting my school work done would pay off. It’s no different than hours in the gym or bike work or practicing starts. It had to be done to ensure myself a solid future. My experiences these last few years have truly shown me the importance of education. Although my heart has always been with my dirt bike, one of the best decisions that I’ve ever made was to keep my head out of the dirt and prioritize my education. I still have dreams of racing that I want to reach, and I’ll race as long as my body will let me but I also have a contingency plan, a way to afford racing, and a life outside of motocross. I love the sport more than anything but I am more than happy for the opportunity to see the other amazing things the world has to offer through earning my education. Make what seems like the hard choices now: study then ride, homework and bike work. It is important and I promise it will pay off. - Lydia Greiner


Between the Trees

I

A race report from HS #2 Strickland Ranch Showdown #3 by Jesse Ansley

t was a very eventful weekend with Tom and Ellen not at the races, but we still pulled out of there with a win under our belts. Some mistakes were made throughout the race and one was a major mistake. There were three kids in my class, Jack Langford, Cole Williams and myself. I got a really good jump at the start, maybe a little too good because I pulled a wheelie and had to chop the throttle to let it down. Due to that little mistake, Williams shot past me to take the holeshot. I tried sticking it in under him in the third turn, but it just didn’t happen. His lead only lasted for less than a half a mile when he just tipped over. That allowed me to grab the lead. On the first lap, I blew two turns. Nothing major, but it did cost me some time. When I came through the scoring area, my transponder didn’t work. “Oh great, what’s next?” I reached around to the back of my chest protector and I felt it! About two-and-a-half miles in, there was a little straight away that had a invisible root or something. I did not see whatever grabbed my front tire, grabbed on and did not let go. The end result was hitting a tree - I heard of trees that step out in front of you, but not a tree and an invisible root working together? Right when I hit the ground, I really thought I broke my arm, but once I got up I realized that it was just really hurting. I did not lose my position when I fell and I was glad because we had some issues. My rear brake pedal “peg” was bent so bad that I had to take my foot off the foot peg and hit the brake. I managed to bend it back, but then it snapped off. “That’s just GREAT.” For one-and-a-half-laps, I had to use the back brake as a “lever.” There was some fast straightaways out there and that’s

when I realized that my right shroud where it mounts to the radiator. I got very lucky and ran into Donny Richardson on the trail and told him what happen. Donny looked at me and said, “Are you hurt?” I said, “No, just banged up.” Donny said, “Son you better get going, I think you are wasting time?” Well Poppa Tom says “if you don’t ask, you don’t get.” “Well I guess it matters what you ask for?” The first time they just bent the lever out and sent me on my way. On the next lap I stopped for gas, they rigged it by putting a hose clamp around the end of the lever. All this only took one minute, not a bad gas stop; I think Donny and took 3 minutes to figure out I needed to be riding instead of talking on the trail… “Just what was I thinking, man Poppa Tom is never going to let me hear the end of this story…” After all of this rookie stuff, I still have not seen Cole, and no one still hasn’t passed me. My speed did not change because of the back brake; I really prefer the front and use the front way more than the rear. Overall, I liked the course a lot! But, just being back home riding a normal track is great considering the GNCC courses; they are killers! The track had a little mud hole in this one section, and that was it. They ran us through a bunch of palmettos, way much more fun than “ROCKS.” The moisture in the ground keep it from being dusty, which helped pick up the speeds and it did get a little rough. The bike had a little bit of headshake in the long fast straightaway’s and in the fast braking bumps. I needed just a little more or a little less of something… We will get that fixed before the next race in Bartow. - Jesse Ansley

ENDURO MEETING MINUTES

Old Business

Previous minutes were read into the record and accepted as read. Sanctions were discussed.

New Business

Enduro Committee Meeting, BSTR’s Property - August 18, 2012 The meeting was called to order at 6 p.m. by the chairman. Role was taken, in attendance were:

Enduro Committee: Chair – Jeremy Powell; Ref – Lee Daley; Co-Scorekeepers – Deb Broderick and Ken Stephenson; AA/A rep – Absent; B/C rep – Mike Ludwig; Specialty A/B rep – Doug Ludwig; Specialty C/Women - Allen Pearce Sanctioning Clubs: Big Scrub – George Edwards; Suncoast – Cary Hunt; CFTR – Cliff Golby; Apollo – Sam Boydston

November 2012 | 21 as a C-rider will carry 7 promotion points to the new class. The Enduro committee has the authority to rescind (by majority vote) previous reclassification actions if a subsequent review of the rider’s scores in the lower classification demonstrate that reclassification action was not warranted. 4. Beginner promotion rules are, after 3 top 5 finishes or after starting 8 events the rider is promoted up to the proper FTR class. All FTR Hare Scrambles riders shall ride in their assigned Hare Scrambles class for FTR Enduros, prior to any Enduro ranking being established. Any disputes, concern, initial or reclassification will be determined by decision of Enduro Committee chairman, referee and scorekeeper prior to riding a FTR Enduro. 5. Advancement points will accumulate for three years only, two previous years plus the current season for displacement classes only.

A rule change was discussed about creating a Junior Enduro racing series to promote kid’s racing Enduros. Deb Broderick and Doug Ludwig expect to have a set of rules to discuss at the next Enduro Committee meeting at Croom.

6. All riders in displacement classes, except “AA” and “A” riders, are eligible for “FTR advancement points.” Five bonus points will be awarded to any rider who is first place winner in the combined “B” and ‘C’ displacement classes, i.e., 200cc, 250cc, Open, Four Stroke and Women’s divisions. FTR advancement points are awarded to the top 20 or 40 overall B and C riders at each Enduro in accordance with the following table. Points are doubled in case

Assistant Referees need to be in place for each Enduro as per our rule book. For this event (Lochloosa) – Keith Finnerty from CFTR is the Assistant Referee.

A rule change was discussed to create a promotion to AA and to Vet AA in the Enduro Series. Lee Daley will work on the rule and present it at the Croom Enduro meeting.

Recommendations

Trophy Recommendations – A,B,C Overall at each event (Placards or Trophies SHOULD be given to top A, B, and C rider at each Enduro)

Scoring needs:

POWER: The club is responsible for supplying a dedicated area for scoring, including adequate tables and chairs and cover from the elements. A direct A/C power supply is preferred if available, otherwise a dedicated 1000W+ inverter generator (producing a pure sine wave that is safe / compatible with computer equipment) will be needed, along with sufficient gas to run it for several hours. Any necessary extension cords to connect to the power source will be needed as well. REPS: Two club members will be needed for scoring the riders using the electronic scoring by entering scorecard data into the software. LOCATION: Club should provide a table with an easy up or some kind of shade/weather cover to protect the FTR scoring equipment and club members using the FTR equipment.

Rule Changes:

ADVANCEMENT RULE CHANGES - presented by Jeremy Powell (Synopsis – This rule allows for 2 advancement sets to be ranked and stacked like the specialty ranking system, and removes the displacement advancement rules from the rule book. Our MotoTally scoring system will give us great detail and allow the Enduro Committee to better advance riders in the series in a timely and fair manner. This rule allows for such procedures to be put in place. It greatly simplifies the process of advancement and will catch riders that have been improperly classified.)

*200 or less ‘B’ and ‘C’ riders entered **More than 200 ‘B’ and ‘C’ riders entered 7. The Specialty Classes Ranking System for promoting and demoting riders in the Vet, Senior, Super Senior, and Master classes at the end of each season is defined as follows: a. All Riders, Specialty and displacement, will be assigned an overall event number (event rank) based on their finish position against all FTR riders competing in the event. Event rank numbers will be calculated in descending percentage order, from overall winner to final rider. b. Each FTR rider’s event finishing positions (event ranks) as published in the FTR magazines at season end, will be averaged to determine a ranking number after deleting worked points and rank numbers awarded for a DNF. If only one completed Enduro is published, a ranking number will not be established and the rider will remain in the same division for the upcoming season. c. All riders in each specialty class will be stacked in numerical order for each class by their average ranking number. Any rider not receiving a ranking number is not considered in the stacking and will remain in the same A, B, or C division in the next season except as defined in (i) below.

OLD RULES/Page 17 of Rule Book

d. Specialty classes are divided by the ratios of 25% for A, 35% for B, and 40% for C, except Golden Master, which is divided 40% A and 60% B, based on the total number of riders in the class receiving average ranking numbers. When fractions exist based on the 25/35/40 or the 40/60 in Golden Master multiplication factors, they will be rounded to the nearest whole number with .500 to .999 to the next higher whole number and below .500 to the next lower whole number beginning with the A division. Any rider promoted more than one division (C to A) will be moved only one division after stacking is completed.

B. Classification of Riders

Any rider demotion will be by petition of the Enduro Committee by the individual rider wishing to be demoted. (10/2011)

3. This rule applies to displacement classes only. The specialty Advancement System is described in rule Chapter IV, paragraph

e. Any rider entering a specialty class from the displacement classes of the previous year must have a ranking number calculated based on previous year’s performance. These riders will not be considered in establishing the division of the A/B/C designation in each class. Riders entering a specialty class from the displacement class for the first time shall not be promoted or demoted more than one division (A to C or C to A).

B, 7. Any time before 50% of the sanctioned runs, any “B” rider accumulating 100 FTR advancement points will be advanced to “A” division immediately, taking 90% of their championship points to “A” division. After that time, a “B” rider accumulating100 FTR advancement points will be allowed to compete for the remainder of that year in the “B” division. “A” and “B” FTR Hare Scrambles series and Motocross series riders will ride in the “B” Enduro division. If any “C” rider accumulates 15 or more FTR advancement points, they will be moved to “B” division immediately, any time throughout the season, taking 90% of their championship points to “B” division. Riders may reclassify themselves to higher (but not lower) division by notifying the FTR scorekeeper, and take 90% of their championship points any time before 50% of the sanctioned runs, but zero championship points after 50% of the sanctioned runs. A rider can be reclassified to a lower division by petitioning the Enduro committee. An A-rider reclassified (by Enduro committee vote) as a B-rider will carry 50 promotion points to the new class, and a B-rider reclassified (by Enduro committee vote)

f. Riders moving to a new specialty class from the previous year will use the ranking number established in their old class to determine the A/B/C level to ride in the new class. Riders moving to a new specialty class from the previous year shall not be promoted or demoted more than one division (A to C or C to A). g. Riders may reclassify themselves to a higher (but not lower) division by notifying the FTR Enduro Scorekeeper, and take 90% of their championship points any time before 50% of the sanctioned runs, but zero championship points after 50% of the sanctioned

runs. A rider can only be reclassified to a lower division by petitioning the Enduro Committee.

h. Classification of Hare Scrambles riders to the Enduro Series Specialty Class can be determined by decision of the Enduro Committee Chairman, Referee and Scorekeeper prior to establishing a ranking number. i. Specialty class riders must remain in the highest division attained using the ranking system for at least 2 racing seasons. A rider has the option to petition the competition committee to prove that he should not have been promoted. NEW RULES/Page 17 of Rule Book B. Classification of Riders 3. The Enduro Chair, Referee and Scorekeeper will set the classification of any rider new to the series that does NOT have a FTR ranking in Hare Scrambles or Enduros and does NOT have an equivalent ranking from another series. The Enduro Chair, Referee, and Scorekeeper may adjust the classification as needed of any rider that was given his initial classification by the committee. 4. Beginner promotion rules are, after 3 top 5 finishes or after starting 8 events the rider is promoted up to the proper FTR class. All FTR Hare Scrambles riders shall ride in their assigned Hare Scrambles Class for FTR Enduros, prior to any Enduro ranking being established. Any disputes, concern, initial or reclassification actions will be determined by decision of Enduro Committee chairman, referee and scorekeeper prior to riding an FTR Enduro. 5. Advancement Sets - There will be two sets of advancement percentiles calculated, one for all displacement riders, and a second for the following specialty class riders: Vet, Senior, Super Senior, Master, and Golden Master. A percentile will be calculated for each rider, at each race. At the end of the season, the rider’s percentiles will be averaged, and this will be the rider’s advancement percentile for the season. DNF and Work Run Credits will not count in the average calculations. 6. All riders in all classes (except for Women, EVO, Beginners and Vintage) are counted in one of the Advancement Sets. 7. The Ranking System for promoting riders in all classes in advancement sets is defined as follows: a. All Riders in both advancement sets will be assigned an overall event number (event rank) based on their finish position against all FTR riders competing in the event within their advancement set. Event rank numbers will be calculated in descending percentage order, from overall winner to final rider. b. Each FTR rider’s event finishing positions (event ranks) as published in the FTR magazines at season end, will be averaged to determine a ranking number after deleting worked points and rank numbers awarded for a DNF. If only one completed Enduro is published, a ranking number will not be established and the rider will remain in the same division for the upcoming season. c. All riders in each advancement set will be stacked in numerical order for each class by their average ranking number. Any rider not receiving a ranking number is not considered in the stacking and will remain in the same A, B, or C division in the next season except as defined in (i) below. d. Classes are then divided by the ratios of 25% for A, 35% for B, and 40% for C, except Golden Master, which is divided 40% A and 60% B, based on the total number of riders in the class receiving average ranking numbers. When fractions exist based on the 25/35/40 or the 40/60 in Golden Master multiplication factors, they will be rounded to the nearest whole number with .500 to .999 to the next higher whole number and below .500 to the next lower whole number beginning with the A division. Any rider promoted more than one division (C to A) will be moved only one division after stacking is completed. Any rider demotion will be by petition of the Enduro Committee by the individual rider wishing to be demoted. e. Riders ranked as “A” will ride in any “A” class for which they are age or displacement qualified. Riders ranked as “B” will ride in any “B” class for which they are age or displacement qualified. Riders ranked as “C” will ride in any “C” class for which they are age or displacement qualified. f. Riders moving to a new specialty class from the previous year will use the ranking number established in their old class to determine the A/B/C level to ride in the new class. Riders moving to a new specialty class from the previous year shall not be promoted or demoted more than one division (A to C or C to A). g. Riders may reclassify themselves to a higher (but not lower) division by notifying the FTR Enduro Scorekeeper, and take 90% of their championship points any time before 50% of the sanctioned runs, but zero championship points after 50% of the sanctioned runs. A rider can only be reclassified to a lower division by petitioning the Enduro Committee. h. Classification of Hare Scrambles riders to the Enduro Series Specialty Class can be determined by decision of the Enduro Committee Chairman, Referee and Scorekeeper prior to establishing a ranking number. i. Riders must remain in the highest division attained using the ranking system for at least 1 racing season. A rider has the option to petition the competition committee to prove that he should not have been promoted.

After the event is complete, scores shall be viewable at the event from an electronic display, or by printed reports or via other media as appropriate (SMS message, website, digital feed, etc.) b. If not using the electronic system, then poster board Scoreboards shall be filled out prior to the event with riders listed by class on each sheet. List the order by rider number in numerical order, with rider’s name next to his number. These boards shall be posted at the event so all riders can view them before, during, and after the run. A space in front of them should be roped off to allow room for scoring to be posted.

Old Business

Previous Minutes were read and approved. Daytona Dirt Riders have requested to move their Enduro Date to Thursday of Bike week. Schedule will be updated to reflect this change. Broxton Bridge likely to be removed from the schedule.

New Business

Broxton Bridge event is canceled, and I have asked for it to be removed officially from the calendar. Jeremy Powell brought this new rule to the floor, and it was discussed. Allen Pearce called for the vote. Peter Magee seconded. Old Rule/Page 20 of Rule Book: Riders not finishing an event, (DNF), will receive their class finishing position points as follows. The winning rider will receive full position points. Riders completing within 1 timed checkpoint of the winning rider for their class will receive full position points. Riders completing 2 or more timed checkpoints behind the winning rider will receive fractional position points. Fractional position points will be calculated by dividing the number of timed checks completed by the rider, by the number of timed checks completed by the winning rider in their class and multiplying times the full position points (i.e. winner completes 5 checks, 4th place completes 2 checks – 2/5 x 65 = 26 points) It is to the rider’s advantage to complete as much of the course as possible. New Rule: Riders not finishing an event, (DNF), will receive their class finishing position points as follows: All riders who DNF will receive fractional position points. Fractional position points will be calculated by dividing the number of timed checks completed by the rider, by the total number of timed checks. This fraction is multiplied by the points offered for finishing positions in the chart above. If the first place rider in a class finishes 8 checks at a 10 check event, he receives 80% of his position points. 8/10 x 80 = 64. It is to the rider’s advantage to complete as much of the course as possible.

Approved by a vote of 4 to 3 This rule was to have a way to promote Enduro riders to AA and was brought to the floor by Jeremy. New Rule/Page 18 of Rule Book e. Promotion to AA – The highest ranked specialty racer and the highest ranked displacement racer are promoted to AA in FTR Enduros ONLY. This AA ranking applies to FTR enduros and is not evidence to apply to other sanctioning bodies or other disciplines of racing within the FTR due to our small sample size.

The old “e” becomes “f” and continues with re-lettering to “j” Call to vote by Peter Magee. Seconded by Allen Pearce.

Approved by a vote of 4 to 3 Lee Daley suggested a rule to create an aged-justified scoring mechanism. We discussed informally and did not bring it to the floor for official consideration. Motion for adjournment by Peter Magee. Seconded by Cary Hunt. - Jeremy Powell

I

threw my leg over a Husqvarna for the first time ever, after signing up for 36th Annual Orange State Enduro hosted by the Suncoast Trailblazers at the Croom Motorcycle Park in Brooksville last month. It was my first time on a dirt bike in more than a year, and my first Enduro in more than 10 years. (Yikes!) At sign up, I smiled wide when a few people asked, “Are you racing?” and I could finally reply, “Yes!” I’ve been preparing all summer for my return to racing, after hooking up with Justin Maley of Maley Motorsports, who just opened a new Race Tech Center and agreed to sponsor my comeback. So, I joined a CrossFit gym, gave up soda and processed foods and convinced myself I was ready for the 60+ mile race. Plus, I’ve been riding Croom since the 90s - I even have my handprint in the cement outside of the bathrooms from when CFTR helped renovate the pavilion. So, how bad could it be? In line at sign up, Greg Richardson started chatting me up, not knowing who I was. He’s new to FTR so I was new to him and, somehow, we ended up on same row (#34) on the same brand. I still cannot believe I waited this long to ride a Husky... At the start, Greg took off ahead of me with at least 100 bikes ahead of him and I settled into my pace before long coming up on a shady off camber section where I saw a half dozen riders down and others looking for alternate lines. Observing for a minute, I wound up taking a line up the other side of the hill and away from the accidents and found another groove until I stalled it around a corner shortly thereafter. I kicked and I kicked but the bike was not firing. Minutes felt like hours and I thought, “I don’t hear any bikes coming?” My anxiety kicked in while I continued kicking and remembered what I disliked about Enduros - being all alone out in the woods. I took a

OK?” I nodded my head yes and Matt rode by, barely making a sound. Then, I returned to kicking. I wondered if Matt, a professional supercrosser who’s ridden for teams like Hart and Huntington and was awarded Privateer of the Year in 2009, had ever ridden by someone who crashed on the supercross track and asked if they were OK. I figured that this must only happened in FTR, and suddenly my bike roared to life. I took off again until I hit the first checkpoint at 64 minutes. I was 30 minutes late. After the reset, I got on the gas, recognizing the same sweeping corners from my childhood except now, for the first time, my bike felt like a Cadillac - the Race Tech suspension was dialed! I arrived to the second checkpoint only 6 minutes late. My grin widened until we hit another mudhole and I came upon a biker sunk to his seat. Panicking, I dodged left and found a way around the majority of the mud. But then I stalled it and could not get it started. Again. Twenty to 30 kicks later, I yelled out in angst and looked to my left just as Jonathan Belle parked his bike and pulled off his helmet, coming to my rescue! Wouldn’t you know he started it on the first kick. “Wow,” I muttered. “You must have the touch.” “Just have a lot of experience,” he said and disappeared without another word. “Thank you!” I yelled riding away. At the fourth checkpoint, I arrived 18 minutes late to another reset and, this time, I had a few minutes to rest. I chatted up Greg again while I fetched a GU Energy Gel out of my boot, choked it down and shoved the trash back into my boot. “Well, that’s environmentally friendly,” I heard a rider say and looked up to a would be familiar face. “Are you Jenn?” The guy behind the helmet asked. “Yeah,” I said. “You just joined my gym! I’m Dan! Are you even tired? “Not yet,” I laughed, and it was true: I felt stronger than ever and owed it all to pull-ups and burpee box jumps. Then, when it was my time to go, guess what? I couldn’t get the bike started but thankfully, Mr. Boni volunteered to get ‘er going, and I took off again, arriving at the next checkpoint only 6 minutes late. Riding into the main gas, I felt happy with my performance so far and bragged to Mr. Maley that my bike was riding like a dream. After refueling quickly, I headed back up to the reset a few minutes early, but I’d forgotten to refill my Camelbak, and there was no water at the reset...Bummer. Thankfully, Mr. Richardson hooked me up, spilling half of his Camelbak into mine, which inevitably saved my life. On my minute, my bike wouldn’t start, so I turned to Keith Finnerty, a longtime friend of the family, who hopped on the bike and started it within seconds. Relieved and embarrassed, I took off and tried to forget about everything, including thinking about ANYTHING. They ran us through another section where I had to wing it around an uphill and ended up stuck in between a log and a bush, my back tire spinning endlessly on the hill. Austin Crumm and his dad arrived a short while later and came over to help me get unstuck - I could not have continued without them. Thanks, guys! Naturally, I ran out of water soon after that, creeping through the forest more than 40 miles into the race, feeling my back, neck and legs start to ache.

Enduro Committee Meeting, Croom Property - October 6, 2012 The meeting was called to order at 6:06 p.m. by the chairman.

“If I stall, could you start back up deep breath and then, I heard a four stroke approaching fast. It was Matt Boni who stopped to check on me. “You easy?”


26 | Florida Trail Riders Magazine At the next checkpoint, I showed up 18 minutes late, and knew it would be a long road back to the truck when I asked one of the course marshals how many miles left, and he said about 17. That’s half a Hare Scrambles, I thought and the trail seemed to go on forever through new burned sections of forests and back through the same off camber sections from the start, confusing me. I kept going, though, trying to pick smart lines and I needed water, bad. Would I make it? I felt like the only one left in the woods. I came upon another hill where I saw two guys stopped trying to get their bikes unstuck. I decided to find a line around them and was almost in the clear, but I stalled it. At this point, I cried. Loud. The men heard me and called out: “We’ll be right there.” I wondered if they could tell I was a female, or if it matter. I sat on the ground, removed my gloves and helmet and tried not to hyperventilate, wanting to burst into tears. After a few minutes, the guys arrived and one offered his Camelbak to me. “It’s water and Gatorade mixed,” he said, “if you don’t mind sharing.” I said I didn’t mind and drank from his Camelbak while his friend worked on starting my bike.

Thirty kicks later, the other guy tried a few kicks. Nothing happened. I told them to keep going and not to worry about me. As if they were going to leave me there alone, they said, with not another course marshal in sight. Finally, by some fate, the bike roared to life and the guys told me they would follow me to the finish. So I took off, never to see them again, (thank you, guys!) and approached the next road crossing where I found the flagger sitting in his truck. Disturbed and worried that the sun would be setting soon, I wondered how much longer the trail would go on. Another worker rode up, carrying a jug of Gatorade and asked if I saw any riders down. But I told him I had not seen anyone except the guys who helped me. Was he talking about me? I thought, I could use some Gatorade. “How much longer?” I asked before trudging on. “I’m not sure,” he said. “Probably like 5 miles.” It was the longest five miles of my life, but I kept the bike running to the finish. I arrived at 97 minutes, houring out by 3

minutes. Thank you to everyone who helped me get going. I could not have done it otherwise! Next time, I’ll be wearing glove liners!

after the Suncoast Junior Enduro

“It was fun. It was not hard and it was smooth and sort of easy.” ” “I got third. RM65.” “I think flat tracking is a little easier because there’s no trees or hills or anything, no obstacles. It’s just an oval.” “(Enduros help) a little bit, like with the clutch when you’re going through the forest and you have to stop really hard and use the clutch .” “That was my first Enduro. I’ve done one Enduro and one Hare Scrambles.” “Probably the Enduro.” “I want to thank my dad Shawn (McNary).”

Catching up with Christopher Noble after the Suncoast Junior Enduro

“I rode the Lochloosa one before and I didn’t finish that one and I finished this one. I liked it a lot.” “I guess I felt more confident. The trail was good. I liked it. “YZ85 - I only ride once or twice a year.” “I liked the thing where you go down and up the hill but when I got up a bunch of us didn’t know where to go because it wasn’t clearly marked.” “Because the sunlight and riding in and out of the trails and being in the woods and I missed a few turns or whatever and I had to turn around.” “My goggles got foggy.” “I finished second out of two.” “I love Enduros; that’s the only ones I’ve been signed up for.” “It’s fun and you get to control it. You can do what you want basically. It’s all on your own. “I want to thank Cary (Hunt) and my mom and my friend and his dad.”

Letters to the editor may be emailed and will be edited for spelling, clarity and length [Katie’s note: I wanted to take a little of FTR’s time to introduce you to someone very dear to my family. Don Schmelyun aka Dr. Don at DSI MX Performance. Donnie is a current FTR member and a member of Treasure Coast Trail Riders. Donnie has been in the motocross industry for over 30 years. He has owned a shop, worked for ARS in Okeechobee, worked for a private shop and now he is back being his own boss and supporting a wide variety of local riders, including his daughter Aura.] KK: Donnie, How did you get your start with dirt bikes? DSI: Growing up Lakewood Park in Ft Pierce everyone had a bike and rode around the neighborhood. As a kid riding bikes I was the one that everybody else brought their stuff to fix. I would go down to Suzuki of Ft. Pierce to get parts and what people needed. The shop owners took notice that I was always in there buying parts, so they asked me why. I explained that I was working on the neighborhood kids bikes. At that time, the owner of Suzuki Ft. Pierce approached me about a job. I took the job and continued to ride local. The shop took notice of my racing and I became a backed rider from the shop. I continued to work and race. I raced pro in the eastern U.S. from Florida to Pennsylvania from 1980-83. I raced against guys like Ronnie Tichenor and Kenny Keylon. Raced Factory for Suzuki support. Raced Vet Nationals from 2001 to 2005. While racing the eastern U.S., I continued to work for local shops. Some of you may know me from Cycle Design in Ft. Pierce and ARS in Okeechobee. Around 2008 I had the opportunity go venture on my own. And V Twin Concepts was started. V Twin is the street side with DSI MX being the dirt side. My roots have always been dirt and will always be in the dirt. I now have my daughter, Aura, racing and riding as well. Any Saturday at the shop you will find her with me talking to all the customers. KK: Let’s talk about DSI MX for a bit. How many riders do you give local support to?

DSI: Oldest rider I have is Harvey Sorenson. 50+ rider who sweep The Gold Cup series. Beats every rider at every race. KK: How is your youngest? DSI: Youngest is Carter Clay at 3 years old. He is based in Okeechobee on a PW50. Watch for this kid. He is up and coming. KK: You have a full backed rider, Nathan Anderson. How did he find you or did you find him? DSI: Nathan’s uncle for come into V Twin all the time. He started telling my about his nephew that rode a YZ85. Nathan’s uncle talks his parents about my shop and they starting bringing me Nathan’s bikes to work on. I have backed Nathan since. He now rides 250’s and 450’s. He has been State Champion for the past five years. He is running the Gold Cup series right now and doing great. KK: You have another rider, Billy Baker. How did you hook up with him? DSI: I met Billy at the Bithlo Summer Slam last year. I saw a great kid with lots of potential and wanted to help. Billy has been doing great and he continues to get smoother and better. KK: Yeah, I love that kid! You went there; let’s talk about Bithlo. You are a full sponsor there for the Summer Slam Series. How is that going? DSI: It’s going great. At the start of the series this year we had over 145 riders. A lot of my riders do this series, so we have a great showing. It’s a fun series and a great way to get involved with motocross.

over 50 percent of the classes. KK: That’s awesome. I loved watching that race. You also participate in the Gold Cup Series. Who do have racing there? DSI: I have several riders there including Nathan, Jack Kenney, Russell Clay, Dillon Drake, Harvey Sorenson, Perry Warren, Dennis Bourge and Billy Baker. KK: Do you have a lot of woods riders? DSI: I have a few that included Shane and Tiffany Hoskins, Ken Harris and his family, Phil Jordan, Scott Howell and the Klucinec’s. KK: That a lot of riders. I want to thank you, sir, for taking the time to sit and chat with me. I hope FTR sees a lot more of DSI in the future. DSI: Thank you.

[Katie’s note: I could sit and talk to Donnie for hours. He knows more about dirt bikes than anyone I know. He has love for vintage bikes as well. The Treasure Coast Trail Riders count themselves lucky to have such a knowledgeable man working in their neck of the woods. I know my family and I would be sidelined for some races had it not been for the help, advice and support we receive from DSI MX. Next time you are at the races come find me (Katie #13 Women B) or my husband, Scott (#13 Super Senior C ) we can tell you a lot more about Dr. Don and what he has been doing for FTR, motocross and our family.]

KK: Yes you do, my family loves this series. It’s the off season for Hare Scrambles so we have a lot of fun with it. Let’s talk about MESA Park. You and your team participated in the FTR Motocross race there. How did you do? DSI: At Mesa Park we had roughly 45 riders that are DSI backed/supported in some way. Was great to watch. My riders Donnie with his daughter, Aura. made a great showing. I think we won

DSI: I have 20+ backed riders. My riders range from peewee 50s to Vet riders. Inside the DSI MX shop Grant, FL. KK: Who is the oldest rider you in back? Visit dsimxperformance.com or find DSI MX on Facebook!

Donny

Richardson

Editor’s Note: Glenn Garner said it best, “The man no one wants to see! But when you need him you are happy to see him!” That’s Donny Richardson, FTR’s Hare Scrambles Recently, at the Daytona Dirt Riders’ Hare Scrambles, Donny and the rest of the FTR Safety Team, along with the DDR club members, helped haul a rider out of the woods and into a helicopter waiting in the field. Concerned FTR members including myself crowded around, wondering what happened. I watched Donny taking care of the rider, talking to the paramedics after they arrived on scene and eventually helping to carry the backboard into the chopper. I wondered how he did it all, so afterward, I called Donny to find out.

D

JS: Hey, Donny. You guys sure had an exciting weekend. First off, can you explain to me how the FTR Safety Team works? DR: I’ve worked real hard with all of the clubs over the years to get them to provide access roads or trails or cuts in the shrub or whatever so that we can get to various places without having to ride the whole eight or 10 miles; let’s say to get to mile eight, you have to start at one. Well, no, that just doesn’t make any sense so typically the clubs provide maps and most of the maps have some type of trail laid out on them...and they name them or label them A through Z or 1 through 10. I get multiple maps for all the guys that are on bikes and the Rhino. We keep them with us and they show the trail and they also show the mileages on the trail as it relates to those roads, so it provides us with the shortest route to get to wherever we need to get to on the trail, based on where the injured riders is.

We all carry radios. The Rhino has a radio built into it but the crew also wears radios and ear pieces so that they can not miss anything. All of us that are on bikes, there’s typically three or four of us, we hear what’s going on and then it’s just basically very similar to the 9-1-1 system where whoever finds the rider first, calls it in as an injured rider, or the club member calls it in, and then the Rhino starts heading that way nice and easy, until we find out, because we chase a lot of ghosts, you know, somebody falls down, say their hurt, by the time we get out there, they’re up, they brushed off the dirt, fixed their ego and off they go. Sometimes it’s just a bike issue and they’re not hurt at all but nonetheless the three or four of us on bikes all start making our way that way as quickly as possible. The first one there gets to the scene and gives a size up to the rest of us so that we know either, A, step it up a notch and hurry up and get here or B, I’ve got a little foot injury that way we can all back it down a notch, and then a couple minutes into it, typically, ‘Hey I need a four-wheeler to help get this guy who’s got a broken collarbone out,’ or ‘He’s got a sore foot and he’s going to ride himself out,’ or do we need to send the Rhino back to get the mobilization stuff off the rescue truck and come out with the rescue guys or without, and do we need to either, A, have the paid ALS (Advanced Life Support) guys start another truck in, whether that truck needs to come emergency or not or, B, whether we need air support. So, like in Paul’s case, they called in a downed rider out past mile two and they had a section called the “Drag strip,” and we all knew where that was, so we all headed that way. One of my guys got there and called in a quick report. I don’t know if you know Randy Rash, he’s one of the guys from PBTTR and I’ve known Randy for years and not a whole lot rattles his cage. Well, Randy called me on the radio and said that I needed to hurry up and get there and you could tell that whatever was going on was rattling his cage a little bit. So, that typically means to us that we step it up a notch, kick it into overdrive. We got there and basically we mirror the EMS (Emergency Medical Services) system. I look to my guys to tell me what they need and I provide the communication between what my folks on the ground need and what we need from the rescue guys. I let the Rhino folks, who are also medics, know what they need to bring, anything extra, or just get out here so we can get this patient out. JS: That’s great. It seemed to run very well under pressure. DR: It’s a whole lot of communication and team work. Typically 99 percent of the time, all the club guys roaming around with the vests on, they all show up, they know what they need to do: reroute motorcycles from by here, clear this trail to get us out, do this or that or whatever. Uncle Bill has had training in setting up helicopter places for them to land, because three or four of us that are the primary medical team folks all fly. That’s

November 2012 | 31

my full time job. That’s Karin’s part time job and that’s Levic Allen’s part time job. They both work for EMS fire systems full time, so we’re very versed in air support and what’s required with it. We’ve taken that one step and taught some of our FTR official type folks, ‘this is a what I need, this is the area, this is what it has to have, this is what it can’t have,’ so forth and so on, so all I have to do now is call Uncle Bill on the radio and say, ‘I need to a place to put a bird,’ and he takes care of that and that relinquishes me from that duty and I can focus on the medics that are actually taking care of the patient and what they need so that we can get him or her out of the woods to the rescue truck to get all of the treatment that we need to get done, done and then transfer them to another unit if they’re going by ground or to the aircraft if they’re going by the air

JS: So you’re like the go-to guy out there? DR: When I first started racing, there was no safety team and people just rode and they got hurt and we picked up the phone and we called 9-1-1 and the ambulance came out to the property and we figured out how to get them out to the rider or we figured out how to get the rider out to them. JS: When was that? DR: Back, pre 2000. Not that long ago. Then, when my daughter started racing, I was the neurotic dad that wandered around because my daughter was out riding the big trail and worried to death that she was going to get hurt or the bike was going to break or she was going to get lost, typical of every one of the 65 parents. So I said, ‘Hey I’m in medicine, I do this, why can’t I ride around behind her?’ So I did that a couple of times and I got in trouble because the rules states that you can’t go out and ride around with your kid during the race. Well yeah, I was a dummy I didn’t know that. I was the new guy So I got with some folks with FTR and we started working on how to come up with and create a team of folks to go out and do that, and they said, ‘Yeah sure you can put on this vest and ride around,’ so I put on the vest and rode around. The problem with that was, there’s no communication and if I rode by mile two and you were at mile one-and-a-half and then you fell down, well I might have to go another eight miles before I get back around to mile two again and you’re still laying on the ground, so that didn’t work real well. It was better than nothing. It kind of progressed and grew kind of like from infancy to where it is now with vests and radios and headsets and communication and then I worked with FTR and then we actually got a repeater in the sign up trailer so that all the radios work off that repeater and we don’t have spaces eight miles out where you have no signal and you only have signal at two miles but not at eight. We just made it more into the new millennium if you will. JS: Right. It sounds like a lot of work. DR: We’re all volunteers. We all work. I worked with FTR to get an ALS truck that are paid guys and that’s the rescue trucks from the various counties that we race in and those guys are paid to be there. So we’re an extension of them and I meet with them Saturday and Sunday mornings and I say ‘Hey, we have a volunteer safety team this is what our experience level is and we’re here to help you guys because we’re the experts at getting to them first and getting them out of the woods so that then we can all get the treatment done.’ If they’re bad enough, we have the Rhino, Donna Hazeltine back several years ago was instrumental in that getting Yamaha and using their safety grants to get them to pay for part of the Yamaha Rhino and all the clubs kicked in some money and we were able to get it and then WMR in Stuart, Fla. helped retrofit and customize so that it can take a backboard and it’s got the lights and the sirens, just everything to make it the best that we can make it so that when you’re hurt and your eight miles out in the woods, we can get out there, pick you up, not create anymore injury and get you safely out so that we can get you where you need to be to get you fixed. For example, in Gainesville at Gatorback, those guys work at Gatorback all the time and apparently many, many years ago...some of the ALS guys went out on the track and were either run over or very close to getting run over, so their policy was then the only way that they would go out on the track for an injured rider was if the race was stopped. Well, that might be great in a MX venue but not in a Hare Scrambles where you have 11 miles of trail. You can’t

stop everybody, so that’s where our advantage is: we can scoot out there, scoop them up, bring them in and then, as a group, provide the care that they need and get them off to the appropriate hospital for whatever they need.

DR: on the bike? You know, she’s getting close. I’ve probably got more grit and determination and would probably ride way over my head to stay in front of her, but it won’t be long and I won’t be able to catch her.

We also like to let everybody know that I typically pull in on a Friday night, so there’s no emergency services until Saturday morning when racing starts, and there’s no emergency services from Saturday when racing ends until Sunday morning again and we’re there overnight so, you know, God forbid something happens, they can come knock on our door and we can come take a look at them, we carry Band-Aids and all of that basic first aid stuff if your kid gets into some poison ivy or your kid gets into the thorn bushes, we’re there.

JS: Can you talk about what happened over the summer to get your equipment updated? After all those hours on your bike every weekend. Didn’t some of the clubs come together and help fix up your ride? DR: We put a ton of hours on the bike and the Rhino and when we get to the offseason, 99 percent of the work between Tom Fleming and TF Racing, he takes care of my suspension needs and a lot of trackside support for whatever is needed when we’re out there. H&R Powersports which is Shane, he has been all about getting parts when I need them, tires and that kind of stuff Then over the summer, George Pollard and WMR over there, that’s where the bike goes there for its spa day. We pull the motor apart, look at it and put new parts in it. A lot of guys and clubs and past riders that I’ve had to pick up all want my bike to be working the way its supposed to come racing season and a lot of those folks make sure that that happens and whether they did or not, I would make sure that happens because again I want to give back to the sport that has been great for all these years.

JS: So, it’s safe to say, if it wasn’t for you, the FTR Safety Team might not be what it is today. DR: It is where it is because of everybody’s willingness to help. I’ve got two of the guys that do it. They do it all day Saturday, they race Sunday morning, and then they’re there ready to go again Sunday afternoon. It’s two days of a lot of seat time, a lot of being ready to go, especially once the racing starts on Saturday, it’s one race right after the other, there’s no real down time, we just grab sandwiches on the way to go, keep the radios tucked in our ear the whole day. JS: Do you still race? DR: No, and that’s two fold - I don’t race one because we’re really focusing, for several years, on Amanda’s racing, and then the other two guys that are on bikes, they typically race Sunday morning. Well, that’s when I would race. That was really hard for me to say, ‘OK, well we have all these services available all day Saturday and Sunday afternoon, but not Sunday morning,’ and now Amanda races Sunday morning in Women A and from being a parent, even though she’s 18, there’s no way I could be out there racing. My mind would be everywhere but on the track!

JS: It’s cool that they did that for you guys. DR: Without the help of those folks, it would have been more difficult to do, and it’s always nice when the bike won’t start and it won’t run right or whatever and you see folks like Tom or Shane or whoever, everybody jumps in and starts looking at it, and unfortunately, that’s not very often. This is year number three that I’ve been the Hare Scrambles Referee so I try to make sure that I’m up there before practices and at riders meetings and give my two cents about riding safe and the stuff that I see like bridges or not riding over you’re head because we all think we’re Ryan Dungey when we’re out there on the bike. Personally, for me, it sucks when I see, especially those people that I know real well and watched their kids grow up, like Paul Lucas, I’ve know him for years now, and so you get to develop those relationships with those people, and when you’re toting them out of the woods, it’s a little bit harder.

JS: So you’re still the same neurotic dad? DR: Yeah, and you know what, racing’s fun but I get a ton of seat time and I get to take two things that I love, which is obviously riding and what I do in my full-time job, and put them together and give back to the sport that’s given us a ton. JS: Where do you guys live? DR: I live in Largo which is just south of Clearwater and my full-time job is I am a flight paramedic RN for Tampa General.

JS: Well, I’m sure it must have reassuring for him to see you? DR: Yeah, the three main medics that I have on my team, not a one of them has less than 10 years experience, they all work for very busy EMS fire system and Levic and Karin both also fly as a part time job. So they see the worst of the worse, they’re doing that stuff everyday and for me, that knowledge of knowing I’ve got 20 to 30 years of experience taking care of a patient means I can focus on things like providing the reassurance that everything is being done, being able to be there up and talking with him while the crew is doing what needs to be done on the medical side...It helped relieve that anxiety of, ‘Am I really hurt? Am I really hurt that bad?’

JS: How did you get started in FTR? DR: I blame that on Levic. He’s one of the medics that is part of the team. He flies for Tampa General as well. He found out that I rode when I first started working there and he said basically, ‘hey dude you’ve got to come out and try this sport if you’ve never raced.’ And I said, ‘no you know I’m a weekend warrior I just go out and play to places like Croom.’ And I came from up north where we rode in all the quarries and he’s like, ‘Yeah you gotta come out and race,’ so I went to my first race in Plant City back then and it was one race, I finished, it wasn’t pretty, but it was hook, line and sinker, I was done, and I’ve been racing ever since. JS: You have one daughter? DR: Yeah, and it’s good that I only have one because I don’t think I could afford more than one, especially not in the racing world. I actually tried to push her away from racing when she was 6 or 7. She’s like, ‘Dad I want a motorcycle,’ and I’m like, ‘No, you don’t. You just see that Daddy has one,’ and she’s like, ‘No, I do. I do I do.’ Well, that went on for a better part of a year and then Christmas was coming up and I talked to my folks and I said well, we can either buy her a bunch of junk that’s going to end up under her bed after she plays with it once, or we can buy her a motorcycle, and we bought her a used Honda 50 and it’s got more expensive since. JS: Do you give her any advice? How does she stay so consistent? DR: She’s a smart kid. She’s obviously listened to all the friends that we’ve developed over the years and talking to them about racing and riding and listens to their advice. She’s had her share of crashes and, you know, she loves FTR and at 18, she’s studying to be a nurse in Jacksonville JS: So, she’s taking after her pops, huh? DR: Yeah, and she started dating Palmer (Lynch) about three years ago and of course you know he’s a very fast rider and they ride together during the offseason and off weekends and he gives her all kinds of pointers, and my better half is a marathon runner so she’s always training and Amanda has looked to her for training advice and Karin provides her all kinds of training stuff. She’s done some 5Ks and a couple of half marathons so that training has definitely helped her riding. JS: Can she beat you yet?

JS: Do you think anything could be done better? DR: I don’t know. We are constantly looking at ways to improve what we do as an organization, not just the safety team, but FTR as a whole. Sometimes it’s very difficult to get a group of people to agree to disagree, and what’s good today may not be good tomorrow. What was good five years ago was great five years ago, but now there’s better ways to do things. Tim Nordle, being a deputy up there in Sumter County, he’s been great with some of the radio stuff, so we’ve got a new improved antenna this year which gives us better range so that was a great thing. Somewhere down the road, maybe some waterproof radios because right now, if we get the radios wet, you lose the ability to communicate because of the repeater, but you know that’s expensive. We’ve been fortunate. I make sure I tell all the clubs, if we’re going to have nasty weather, that everybody carries a plastic bag and the radio goes in a ziploc bag so that we don’t lose that communication. There’s always new gadgets coming out and as those new gadgets come out, we decide whether its financially feasible or is that something we really need or is the system working all right the way it is All the folks on the safety team are volunteers and we have a few other folks who are not medically trained. Uncle Bill, who is the Assistant Referee, his brother comes out. Randy Rash helps me quite a bit; Tom Harris, whose kids ride, helps out with the Rhino operation as needed and three of four others come out and ride with us and we pair up one-to-one and they help us, when I’m on the ground taking care of somebody and I’ve got my back to oncoming traffic, those guys are facing oncoming traffic to make sure I don’t get run into, if need them to hold something I need them to get something from the Rhino or ride the bike out for the rider, it’s great to have those extra hands JS: Good to have somebody watching your back. DR: We’ve got a great team and FTR has been very supportive of it. I’m happy to go to every race. I can’t wait to go to the next one. JS: Well, I speak for everyone when I say thank you for alleviating some of the chaos. DR: We’re constantly striving to find new better improved ways. Some of the things you just can’t improve on but I couldn’t do this alone, without Karin on the Rhino and Amanda riding shotgun except for when she’s racing, and my other two guys Mike and Levic on bikes other than Sunday morning when they’re racing. I couldn’t do it. And those guys make this team functional and we all work together and that provides the best outcome for the patient and then of course you have to add in the teamwork of the guys that are paid to be there. They know who we are and it’s great because we’ve had the same 14 or 15 races over the last few seasons, so you’re working with the same county EMS systems each year, and they all know who we are and they all know what we do so they’re like, ‘All right cool, you bring them to us and we’ll figure out a plan and we’ll go from there.’ So it’s just good communication and great teamwork. I have to give credit to all the riders because over the years they’ve recognize what the blue EMS vests and the lights mean. They’re all about slowing down and seeing if you needed any help and staying out of the way. Again, it’s not just the safety team, the medics, the clubs, its the organization as a whole. Look at how many people when the helicopter landed in the field, it’s like moths to a light. Everybody is out there wanting to know can I do anything. It’s truly family support

FTR Safety Team: Donny (#696), Karin Tallent and Amanda Richardson (on the Rhino) Levic Allen (#8) with Mike Veach (#664) about 90 percent of the time based on work.

JS: Anyone you want to thank, Donny? DR: Huge thanks go out to Tom Fleming and TF Racing, WMR and Bob and Joe at the shop as well as George Pollard for all his four stroke knowledge and Shane at H&R for providing parts as needed and the whole support that I get from my guys and my own family being Karin and Amanda because without them wanting to come out and help, I couldn’t do this. It truly does take all of us. JS: What about now that Amanda’s in school? DR: Yeah, she kind of gets the privy of, I show up, I ride I get my bike dirty, I eat your foot and then I go back to college. JS: She’s factory now! DR: But that’s all right I’m good with that. She’s doing great in school. JS: That’s awesome. Thank you, Donny!
