I got a report from Brent regarding the VRRA races this weekend, from last night:

“Pretty good day, 3 for 3 in the win column, including P3H against the 80's superbikes.”

Nice job Team Waller... I hope today goes as well.

Brent is a little worn out from the long drive/race/drive home deal, but hoped we will get a full report soon.  No negative off track incidents to report 👍.

Yes it was a good weekend. Won 5 and a 4th. Tyler rode well and is fun watching the little bike do battle with the big superbikes in that class. In fairness to them, this track favours lighter bikes and higher corner speed.

I haven't been to a dyno after all this head work. I did bump up a couple 1/2 mainjet sizes and it seemed to help. I think it needs more. I have a great little antique Champion plug light that helps, but I need to get more cheap D9 resistor plugs and cut one up to know for sure

In the P2 final he had a great battle with Dave Crussell on his H2. Tyler was smiling ear to ear when he came in and said they bumped, slammed the door, cut off noses all race long.  ;D Last lap Dave was ahead and Tyler passed another guy on the brakes and that guy challenged back so Ty had to off track to avoid him so missed any possible move on Dave. They were in different classes but it sounded like fun.

New soft Avons to start and probably 50 laps of the 5km circuit absolutely pooched the front and the rear has a Friday practice left in it. This surface has excellent adhesion, and gives the guys a fighting chance in the wet as well.

This is the kind of post race I like, some clean-up, change oil and one tire. Wow, some time off!

 Sounds great Brent....awesome (and I don't like that word). ;D I think we need a slow shot of Brent and Tyler walking up to the bike, looking around at the competition, starting it etc.....something like the beginning of Reservoir Dogs when they walk out of the restaurant. ::) ;D

It was a priviledge to wear the VRRA #1 plate this season.

Thanks to George, Mike, Jim French, Rick Stetson, and recently Cal for the help. It takes a village.  8)

Oh I've heard the rumours, but that's all they are. Tyler rode very well this season, no doubt, but there are certainly other deserving riders and the executive will do the right thing.

This season he also entered the VRRA's P3 Heavyweight class simply for the competition. The top 3 or 4 guys in this class are all business on fast, big power 80's superbikes. He secured 3rd spot in only 3 of 4 races and turned a few heads on a CB550 based motorcycle.  ;D


Here's a few from last weekend, thanks to Dan Witmer for the pics.

Brains, good looks, AND humility! Mr Waller, Mrs Waller married very well  :D ;D You’re a class act, Brent and it shows in Tyler’s success. Nothing better than to raise great kids you enjoy spending time with, and having others show them respect. A real sign of a great pair of parents.

Tipping my cap and raising a coffee mug to you and your lovely bride! Well done to Tyler!

Great job this year Team Waller.  Fighting it out with the p3 big bikes must have been a good bit of fun for Tyler.

Yes George, he sure did. Here's just a short vid of the start. Second wave is P4F2.

With Mosport gearing it's tough to get a good launch, but he got away well.

I just saw this vid of that early season crash. Not to dwell on anything but simply to show how quickly things can go sideways at speed (90mph corner)

Yes, I’m sure glad Tyler walked away from that one in good shape.  High speed crashes like that are a really efficient way to break stuff on the bike though🙄

Bikes get fixed...😉

Here's another race in case you're not sick of it all!

This is a 20 turn track that allows a 70's middleweight that started from the back to compete with 80's 1100 superbikes. Tyler claims this was one race he enjoyed the most, having a front row seat watching these three seasoned ex pros battle it out.

he rode very well brent , you could do with finding him some better quality opposition though he wont learn much beating them. even if they are riding bikes more modern and twice the size .

Such a pleasure watching a rider on a smaller displacement bike out ride his competition.  Well fought race.  I suspect he would surprise a number of the modern class pro riders if given the opportunity.  Thanks for sharing.
