Anything to even talk about with this main? You just put the hammer down.
Yeah we definitely put the hammer down for sure. I’m pretty pumped on that. It’s about it. We won Daytona! And hey man, I guess I need to take you out to eat now. Didn’t I promise you that back from that video we did in Houston?
Yeah you did. Does that count for Daytona?
Yeah you know what, that’s how good a guy I am. Even though I’m buying for you, I’m going to remind you of it.
And you got a nice bonus for this, right, so we’re all good?
Yeah. So we need to do this!
Sounds good to me! Hey talk about setting your bike up for this track? It’s not a regular supercross, but it’s not really a motocross track, either. So how do you set this up?
Well you know, normally people soften their bikes up for this, because your supercross setup is so stiff. But we ended up doing the opposite.
Yeah! We actually went even stiffer. We did not make one adjustment that made the bike softer. We ended up stiffening things up quite a bit. I don’t know, it could be because I’m lighter anyway, so I don’t run my supercross stuff so stiff anyway. So this track was so rough, the bike was just diving into everything, so we just kept making it stiffer.
During the day, you mean?
Yeah. We didn’t even touch the shock, we just kept stiffening up the new Separate Function Fork, and it worked awesome.
So you came in with one setup, what you thought would work, and then you kept having to make changes?
We stiffened it after every practice. That’s what worked!
So where do you go from here? You’re in the thick of the points battle.
Well, a few of the guys had some problems, so I’m just trying to take advantage of every opportunity that comes my way. So we’ll take this and move on. What’s next, Indy?
Yeah but I think there’s a dinner in there.
Yeah, yeah, dinner and then Indy. [To Ryan Villopoto coming off the podium: “Hey Ryan awesome job!]
