Merlin Bullies Kids at 2019 Hollister Hills Wild Wabbit Hare Scramble




Haha did the title get your attention? Well during the weekend we raced against other mini bikes at the Hollister Hills Wild Wabbit Hare Scramble. Supposedly you're not suppose to be in the C class if you don't have a 21" front. So my KLX140L has a 19" front but anyway I was excited they had a minibike class. The requirements were bikes up to 150cc 4stroke and 100cc 2stroke.

I raced in class MB4 which is 16 and up class. And well there was only 1 other rider in my class it was this girl on a XR100 that I blew passed before we left the motocross track and hit the singletrack. I got a trophy it was like I was guaranteed a trophy with either a 1 or 2 if I finished haha.

It was A LOT of fun the minibike class was mostly kids 15 and under. I was watching some of the kids ride before the race and I'm was like WTF I'm going to race these kids!? They were good. I was thoroughly impressed with all of their riding. I had a battle with a kid in a KX for almost a whole lap and they would not back down we were RACING!! It was awesome haha. The fact that I weight 175lbs and my KLX140 is kinda slow kind of leveled the playing field. Those little bike were no joke they were pretty fast. A little YZ pulled on me on one of the straights haha! Also about the middle of lap 3 I had problem with my bike. The bike would not want to rev. When I choked it ran better. Then eventually it start to run normal again. I think there was some kinda dirt that had got caught in the main jet and it took a while for it to pass. Time to get a fuel filter!

I finished 1st in my class no surprise and overall I finish 11th or 12th. I thought I got 3rd but I looked at the top 3 guys and they did 4 LAPS!!! The #1 had like 5 minutes to make up and they would have lapped me! They were amazing! All I can say is if I were those kids parents and I sent them out to battle like that alone they must have confidence in child's their riding ability. It was pretty rough out there and those kids were not playing around they were racing.


KLX ready for battle notice I brought my Sur Ron with me

Down the tabletop






Wait I'm racing these kids!?


I won 1st place but it is a bittersweet victory in that I was almost guaranteed a trophy just for entering this class.


The Results. If I raced C3 like I did last time I would have gotten 11th place BTW




Like my park job? Victory rootbeer float!

Nice! My buddy did the C 40-? class and completed 3 laps too. I'm hoping I can do the race next year or the Nov one at start of next season.

Question -- what kind of little trailer do you have?

Haha I'm looking at that time and another 6 minutes and I would have lapped her

Also it said some people were riding Altas I didn't see any mini Altas out there.

Oh dude next week is Supermoto USA event at Sonoma Raceway. A mini is like the cheapest way to have fun on 2 wheels. They're tough and cheap to maintain. Going to throw the supermoto wheels on and battle it out
