Pat’s Peak, NH:
This past weekend was round 3 of the Eastern States Cup atPat’s Peak in Henniker, NH. The track was the same as many years past, but thisweekend it was wet, very wet. With a tropical storm passing on Friday, it madefor interesting track conditions and very difficult racing. Most of the trackwas relatively dry with very slippery roots and rocks. However, one section inparticular was a total mud bog. It seemed as if all the rain from the stormdrained into that one section.
Cat 1 19-29
Willem had one ofhis best race weekends to date. As Willem said “something just clicked andgoing fast was easy.” He won his class by over 3.65 seconds and would have been10th in pro. That is his first win since 2010.
Steve came intothis race with high expectations, as it is his hometown race. On a very shorttrack the few little mistakes he made put him into 4th on the day. Stilla great result for Steve.
Tim was feelinggreat all practice and is really making forward progress so far this season.With a field of over 20 top east coast pros 8th on the day was agreat effort for him.
Voncooper Jr. Development:
Andrew made his Jrexpert debut this past weekend and did not disappoint. He won his class with adominating performance, 4.13 seconds up on second place.
Cat 2 0-18
Roberto is makinggreat progress and is learning a lot and he was fastest in the POC speed trap.However, still uncomfortable in the mud, he put in a good effort for a 9thin Cat 2 0-18.
This weekend we would like to give Come-2-You mobiledetailing service and Rob Leite for helping keep our bikes clean in the muddyconditions.
Next weekend Team Voncooper will be at Sugarbush Resort inWarren, VT for Eastern States Cup 4. As always, thank you to all our sponsors!
