Nice to see Husky take 1st!

Although the rider makes the biggest difference. So I suspect what ever Jarvis had ridden would be the bike that won!

Indeed and there were Shercos, KTM's etc who did not due to mechanical failure. Jarvis is also a machine no question.  :o

Results seem to say Birch actually won it?

Oh shyte - maybe all corrected with penalties now? Pity - thought they stood on the podium and all ...  :-\ I really like Chris so not too miffed. Race Control are the main time keepers so while provisional probably sound.

Both Chris and Jarvis were penalized
Still a win for KTM/Husqvarna/Husaberg/whatever

The detail I saw on the riding gods dirtbike as it crossed the finish line was the gun sight logo and a word that looked like HUSQVARNA  :ricky:   Nice to know. Yes war stories to follow for days. :3some:

He did not ride like a god last year, more like a sod. ;)


COGRATS to Husqvarna.

That bike ran like a sewing machine.
