Nasmoto
The Big Apple Gets a Taste of Nasmoto SuperMoto Action
The NASMOTO Circus Stops on the East Coast for a Memorial Day Race

Santa Monica, CA - May 31, 2007 - Nasmoto pinned the throttle back on May 27th for the second round of the NASMOTO SuperMoto Grand Prix at the Cycle Performance Presents NASMOTO New York GP located in Cuddebackville, New York at the Oakland Valley Race Park (OVRP).

Just 30 minutes outside New York City, the Memorial Day race began with overcast skies and severe thunderstorms on the horizon. In the qualifying rounds of the combined Pro-Am and amateur SMX 250 / SM2 class Cycle Performance's own Chris Fisher stood at the top of the time charts. After the thunderstorms came he decided to sit out the race due to rehabbing an elbow.

Filling the vacuum left by Fisher was pro Paul Allison on his 250cc Kawasaki. He rode an outstanding race on the slick tarmac and brought his race bike home on point in the SMX 250 / SM2 class.

"The Cycle Performance Presents NASMOTO New York GP brought out the talent from the New York area," said Ted Baker, Vice President of NASMOTO. "Even though the rain came, the action was fast, furious and fun. The talent is deep and getting better in the North East," he said.

The dirt section, designed by AMA Hall of Fame member Doug Henry, was closed before the race due to the afternoon storms. The rain converted the table tops, banked turns and whoops into a slick soup that became torturous as the day wore on.

The action-packed event never slowed on the 14 turn half-mile asphalt track as the racers worked their wet set-up. One of the best races of the day was in the novice class with five riders in contention for the win until the last turn with Nicholas Canny taking the honors by a wheel.

Another standout was 12 year old Emerson Connor from Burlington, Ontario. He took second in SMX 250 / SM2 and fourth in Open Amateur. "Connor has stepped up the pace and his race craft is sound," said Baker. "He is a rising star of NASMOTO and will be a force in the sport for years to come."

The Amateur ATV class fielded many riders new to the sport who were enthusiastic and over-riding their machines. Ted Baker conducted two rider meetings to ensure safety and settle race day butterflies. Young John Odendahl took a well deserved first place on his Yamaha and shined in a class of enthusiastic ATV racers.
