Idon’t pay as much attention to the Loretta’s rules and class structures as you think, so I was surprised when practice began on Monday and the Mini E (4-6) class rolled onto the track. Last year, Mini E (for the electric 50cc-sized minicycles from KTM, Husqvarna, and GasGas) was set for riders aged 4 to 8. My son Lane is 6. He absolutely loves motocross and would love to race at Loretta’s, but I’m on the fence about the whole thing. I’m also a little busy on weekends, which is when you normally race your dirt bike. Also, I’m busy on weekdays. If my son gets to ride once every other week, I’ve done hero’s work. “We” have a Yamaha PW50, but my son already got into the upper ranges of size and age for that before we got to ride it much. I bought him one of those KTM SX-E5 bikes and figured we had a few years to ramp up “our” “program” so “we” can make a run at Loretta’s.
Of course, anyone who wants to ride on good tracks with real guidance year-round merely has to find a facility and go there.
