DIRT BIKE/IMS 24 HOURS OF GLEN HELEN–SEPT 10

DIRT BIKE/IMS 24 HOURS OF GLEN HELEN–SEPT 10


This past weekend marked the 3rd Annual running of the Dirt Bike/IMS 24 Hours of Glen Helen and featured more than 50 teams battling the elements to see who could survive the brutal test. Team Honda reclaimed the manufacturer?s crown for 2001 due to engine problems suffered by last year?s Ty Davis led Montclair Yamaha team, as well as similar troubles encountered by Shane Esposito?s Kawasaki team. Mike Healey and the Hengeveld brothers led the XR650 to the win, completing 65 laps in 24 Hours, and provided further proof that consistency combined with speed is key in a demanding race like the 24 Hour.

Our own Dirt Bike staff had three separate teams competing in the race, and two of them actually finished an impressive 3rd and 6th overall: The third Dirt Bike team overcame a blown clutch case and basket to finish a respectable 23rd overall, completing 52 laps.
