    Default 10 Years ago today!

    Where did the time go?

    10 years ago today saw the first round of the UK Henderson Harley-Davidson XR1200 Trophy Race at Oulton Park.

    20 bikes competed with the eventual winner the number 99 Warr's H-D bike of Jeremy McWilliams.

    It was a closely fought race with the second place number 11 Riders H-D bike of Mike 'Spike' Edwards crossing the line only half a second behind. It was a battle that was to continue throughout the whole season.

    Note that bike number 19 Sean Emmett didn't finish, it was his first and last ride which was a shame as he was very fast.

    I hope its ok to include the image and results info, if not I will remove.

    So in another 10 years they will be doing these races as "classic" races.
    You see in this world there are two kinds of people my friend.
    Those with loaded guns, and those who dig. #sand to the haters.Hidden Content

    Awesome - hoping to get over there some day to see some of those legendary tracks of BSB and, like Thomas mentioned, 'classic' XR racing would make a handy excuse!

    Ya gotta realize that Spike was 48 yo when that race took place !

    Still races in vintage stuff I think .

    Seems that he will be as long as he can swing a leg over .

    I'm a fan , got one of his t-shirts last year .

    I agree Spike is a legend and he's still at it.

    Also remember Jezza was 46 in that first race and the oldest rider in the series Gordon Grigor was 56 so some years of experience there!

    I was told a good level of fitness was required to hustle these things around the twisty circuits for 10 laps, I can believe it
