Welcome to Washougal Motocross Park! It's time to get out on the track. Make sure to catch the Washougal Retro Natioal this weekend with live coverage of the first motos on Allisports.com and live second moto coverage of both the 250 and 450 classes on SPEED beginning at 7:00pm EST. With that being said, here's your virtual iLap around Washougal Motocross Park.
1. The new start is elevated and off to the right of the old.
2. There's a gentle slope in the middle of the 320' long start straight.
3. Same first turn only now it's 90 degrees left rather than 180.
4. View from outside turn one, down to second right sweeper.
5. Up the massive horsepower hill...
6. The massive bale on the left is about where Ryno speared Mike Brown in 2003. It will be moved tonight.
7. Over the top of the hill is this left hander, followed by a half-dozen rolling whoops.
8. Whoops are easy and widely spaced.
9. Ski jump follows whoops.
10. Land and then a left U turn back up into trees.
11. The big ski jump back down to the infield.
12. View from atop the ski jump, looking down at the hairpin S turn. This is MUCH steeper than it looks.
13. Out of the hairpins is a small dropoff and then what used to be the Chuck Sun tabletop, though 65s jump it now...
14. The very mellow dropaway.
15. From the tabletop, looking back up to the S turns.
16. After a banked right sweeper on the bottom, this is the old middle mound where RC crashed spectacularly on his Suzuki five years ago!
17. Same jump, which is a mellow triple.
18. Standing atop first big jump on the infield triple.
19. Another step-up follows the triple.
20. And then a rolling right slant in the trees, and then straight up the hill towards the woods line, with a step-up over the pinnacle.
21. Atop the pinnacle, looking backwards on the track.
22. Then look forward from the pinnacle, into a banked left sweeper.
23. On the outside of the sweeper, a big natural tabletop, then down into the trees for the dark part of the circuit where Cody Cooper crashed last year.
24. The changing light and shadowing make this a treacherous section.
25. How it looks when your eyes quickly adjust.
26. The big wide corner before the whoops towards the finish.
27. Same corner entrance, looking back from the third whoop.
28. The legendary whoops, which is where Jean-Michel Bayle crashed and broke his arm in 1990, effectively handing away the 125 National title.
29. After the finish, the long, flowing S turns to hairpin left.
30. The hairpin, then back to a hairpin right with an inside mound.
31. The mound.
32. Back down to off-camber left, which is where the old, old first turn used to be and still is for amateur day.
33. Back up over a tunnel and tabletop, followed by another.
34. The corner after the second tunnel has an inside mound and an outside wall to rail.
35. A few more rollers and then the last jump before mechanics area.
36. On top of the jump, looking at mechanics area, then banked right where James Stewart tweaked his knee in '07, and that's your virtual iLap!
