Nothing good comes easy. That was truly the case for the season opener of TORC and the legendary RedBud Motocross track May 27th -29th. The newly built short course track was not the expected Midwest style open fast and flat track. Rather it was a combination of tight technical turns, off-camber rhythm sections, and a massive blind hill top jump. Designed with input for Johnny Greaves, the track resembled a West Coast style track with better soil and lots of trees. Due to massive amounts of rain, the track was a muddy mess, but the racers persevered to put on a show for the Michigan fans who had braved the weather to come see what short course racing was all about.
