Final round! My 43 point lead in Thunderbike going into this round meant all I really needed to do was finish, and the only reason I needed to even do that is because it's a double points round and with 36 points given for a win, I just needed to finish. I took second, but feel like I could have beat the guy in front of me if it weren't for a bad tire choice. The medium compound Pirelli just didn't work at this track and I unfortunately thought with it not being as cold outside the medium would work with my suspension settings for this track, but I was wrong. The rear tire spun all weekend long and I could not get it to hook up, it was almost unrideable. But I stayed where I needed to in the points chase and finished the weekend and salvaged what I could with the spinning tire. Here's the results for the weekend: Heavyweight Supersport 5 Heavyweight Superbike 6 Middleweight Supersport 2 Middleweight Superbike 9 Thunderbike 2
So here's how the season ended:
Middleweight Supersport- 4
Middleweight Superbike- 4
Heavyweight Supersport- 4
Heavyweight Superbike- 5
