The great battles between these two will be limited to other classes. Ryan Teixeira claimed the pole in the middle of row one with Jeff Tigert on his Honda and Berto Wooldridge on the outside. John Daley, now sporting # 102, Grant Riggs on the Jelly Belly/ Bike World Suzuki Gixxer, David Glenn on his new ex- Arclight machine and Tim Kamholz, once again on one of the cleanest bikes in the field (Honda) finishing off the front two rows in a 50 plus rider field that had some good talent and always delivers a great show!

4 The #5 of Jeff Tigert shot off the line first with Teixeira, Riggs, and Wooldridge making up the gang into Turn 1. There was no doubt Tigert had the hole shot and he moved around Turn 2 quickly stretching a little gap on the still shuffling battle behind. Riggs won the battle and claimed second as Lenny Hale rocketed into the group, which also was to include Ken Hill making the most of his Row 4 start.

(Below) Ryan Teixeira was styling and found some new friends to play with.

6 Hale passed Riggs and Hill managed to do the same as we saw some intense racing and shuffling in the top ten and the battle for the Top 5. Fong worked by Teixeira and then Kamholz, as last years Top Novice had his San Jose Yamaha R6 working well after just getting his first ride on it the Friday before.

While Tigert stormed along out front, the Honda of Ken Hill was beginning to reel in Hale. Meanwhile Riggs was starting to feel Fong, as he was on his tail and beginning to apply pressure. Hill made it Honda’s one-two up front when he got by Hale. Fong made his way by Riggs and Kamholz followed and now was on Riggs as they went thru the Riverside Banking.

7 When the ½ way flags were thrown Tigert was well in front holding about 5 seconds on Hill. Fong had moved by Hale to hold onto third. Hale, Kamholz and Riggs were going at it and must have been having some big fun. Kamholz eventually made a pass stick and that brought Riggs to Hale’s tail and the fight stayed intense. Tigert ruled, Hill was secured in second with Fong holding pace in third. The Honda of Kamholz had a couple of bike lengths on Hale as they took the White Flag. Riggs stuffed it inside Hale on the entry of Turn 1 and claimed the 5 th spot. When the ½ way flags were thrown Tigert was well in front holding about 5 seconds on Hill.

An impressive run by all 3 of the top riders and with all three side by side on the front row, the action at Infineon should be an even better show.

9 When the green dropped the large field stormed away toward Turn One and the new season for this class was off and rocking. The battle for the front was not long lived as Spencer left Dakar and began to claim the spot as his own. This did not mean the race was done by any means as the racers behind had thing to settle.

We found a couple of new names near the front and on the podium, but Lohmeyer has had success in this class before and worked hard to gather points so this class is sure to see some shaking up as we move to other tracks.
