Congatulations to my young successor Vennedict Brian Barcelona or Dek2! Who grabbed the 2nd place for the Novice Solo-Scooter category during the NRA Motokhana that was held at SM Fairview grounds last Sunday, May 29, 2011.
We were both excited as everything happened so fast! We only knew about the event a day before it starts. Good thing we join last year’s Motokhana. So we basically pick-up from our last year’s experience. Believe it or not, but the only preparation we did was to washed Miah (our scooter) and fill ‘er up. Then off we go to SM Fairview to register.
There are a significant number of riders participants despite the rainy weather condition that day. I chose not to join this time as my body still aches from my recent company outing. I just support Dek2 in the pit while coaching and giving him morale support. I also act as his official photographer and video man during the event.
With 11 agile riders to compete in his category, plus the wet tracks that makes it more exciting and challenging! I just advise him to relax and focus on speed and balance. And concentrate to be at least included on the Top 6 positions.
And with just few milliseconds time difference from the 1st placer…
1:34.533 (1st Place time)
1:35.035 (Dek2 Time)
1:35.425 (3rd Place Time)
I could say that Dek2 did a good ride that day!!! He made it to the Top 3 position!!! Thank God!!!
I guess we’re definitely going to the next Motokhana event this year. 😀
