I watched about 2 min... guy is solid, but I'm not impressed with a guy going out and passing riders right and left who are at least two groups slower than he; speed differentials on track like this IMHO are dangerous and unnecessary. Ride with people going roughly the same speed and do everyone a favor.

I'd bet they were in B..only indication of I was passing in the corners, but some B groups allow that....and he should be in A. At 6:00 he does an inside pass...if he didn't get black flagged I wouldn't want to run with that organization

I didn't see anything he did unsafe from 1st 4 minutes I watched, but it will bite him one of these days...and likely another rider

There's nothing aesthetically appealing on the new quackers to me

In stock form yeah, but once you track prep it they're bearable. To me anyway

He spooked a coupe of those guys pretty well. Not cool. He is fast though.
