WOLF: BACK IN THE DAY
Well, we ran a great shot of my buddy Jimmy Jarrett winning an OMA championship for Factory Suzuki in 2008, and this photo is yours truly, racing JJ’s Geico Honda CRF450 in 2011 at an OMA event. While Jimmy was very successful on this machine, I struggled mightily on race day (it rained substantially the prior night) and the course was greased snot. It was nearly impossible to ride at low RPMs, and would flame out about 200 times leaving me gassed. When I asked Jimmy how he dealt with that facet of the machine, he said “go faster”. That’s a Mark Kariya photo!
