Done the 1st training day to get up to speed and the first 2 races for the competition. Both done on Assen, were the WSSP and WSBK are held this weekend 22-4 - 24-4 2022. Was very excited to see if all the work would show some result on the technical side. Ill focus on the 2 races, qualli went ok. It was still a cold track and had to warm up for 3 laps : 14th overal and 9th in class (field of 50). Had a good start and lost only 2 places to 1000's in the sprint to the first corner. I decided to push more in the first lap as I did last year. That did help a lot, many new riders and new bikes and could out ride them by experience instead of HP's. I battled with a BMW 1000 RR and a Yamaha R1 and eventually outbreak them and kept them behind with guts, faster cornering speed and better trail braking. Finished 11th overal and 9th in class. The old CBR was some much better then last year with a good engine pickup. Even did a new PR in this race.

Race 2 was also good, started 14th overall, and again 9th in class. Battled for several laps with fully race build PC40. He won on the straight, me again with braking and cornering. But I just couldn't get passed him. Sadly I was not feeling all to well the whole weekend. I went home feeling sick but tested negative. Until last Monday and tested positive for the first time since this pandemic. Keeps me wondering what I can do when I am not sick. Next week the bikes receives new K-Tech front springs and in May is Assen en Zandvoort again.

Nice man, do you set it up yourself? I just had my set for my weight a few minutes ago....wow it's all I can say it's amazing.
The suspension is maintained by Front Row Components. Their mechanic is also the suspension specialist for several race teams like AEB racing in World SuperSport 600 (WSSP). So the bike is in good hands ;-)

Sick, yeah I had to have War Horse Performance do mine yesterday. So much more confident now. They are the team behind Motoamericas Ducati NYC. I'll post some vids later.
