He was lucky the straightaway wasnt a little longer. The cr passed quite handily and just need a little more lead into one corner and he would have won it.

There's always an 'IF' or 'BUT' in any sport.

Pleased to report that the Damien Koppe on the '05 Berg 650 , has backed up last year's effort by winning this year's King of the Beach final at the Mackay Beach races , held last Sunday . It seems like the hotted up CR500 Hondas had reliability problems , with legendary 15 times former winner Mick Hanson , melting a piston in an early heat . I have to change to another image hosting site , to post up some pics , seeing as photobucket is no longer a viable option .
Thanks from bushmechanic

that's brilliant. I have been working with Damion on his bike and we still have more to come. I don't know him but I reckon he's some rider as well.........

Unfortunately , due to work commitments , I didn't make it to this year's event . But looking at some of the YouTube footage , it doesn't seem like the final was as exciting as last year's . This was probably due to the open class two stroke guys having mechanical issues and not making it through to the final . There is one interesting YouTube clip which shows the first corner action in the final . The Yamaha R1 gets the holeshot , as you would expect , but the 650 Berg just effortlessly slides in underneath and exits the corner in front and runs away with the rest of the race . I think rider skill plays a big part in this race , as well as a fast , reliable bike .
Thanks from brucifer
