    yes
  1. Well, thanks! I'm glad to add some spice on the forum...
  2. well... no I did not try it again, but it happened once again during the same race (and I knew what I was doing wrong to slide that much...)... The picture looks pretty in control, and that was pretty smooth, until the end... Did I tell that I hit my head so bad on the handlebar that I had blood in my mouth, I thougth I broke my nose and almost lost some teeths?... lol I am a pretty good «air crasher» (means that I often go up in the air and landed back on the bike), I never want to let the bike goes... I think it saved the bike sometimes (maybe I am just lucky) but it does'nt mean
  3. One day, I will go there... wow... I am actually planning to do my level 4 there... :-)
  4. I have tried so hard to drift with the drift bike when I went to the CSS 2 day camp... and wasn't able to do it But I've learn in the past few years that even if you dont have it the first time, you always learn somthing that can be usefull... so when that situation happened on the track during one of my race, I knew what to do and it gaves me my 2009 best shot! Well... yes I almost highsided... but I did not... :rolleyes: nice...
  5. Yes, I have removed the calipers to check but everything looks fine... But because my mechanics was not there, maybe I did not see what was wrong... lollll well, I'm learning! It realy not came from the brake lever, that was not the feeling of «squeechy» brakes... (I dont know the word in english... lolll), but like if they sticks on the discs...
  6. When I went to Dominican Republic few months ago to race there, I did not have my tent and all my usual equipment and my mechanics. My bike stays under the sun (wich was reaaaaly hot) and I was using my tire warmers because they are supposed to stop by their own when the temperature of the tires is OK. The start is on a small straight part of the track and you have a realy tight right turn after it. When I started breaking to make my turn, the breaks seems to «sticks» together and even if I wasnt touhcing them, they keep breaking so hard that I did a «stoppi» and almost had to go straight
  7. It takes me a while to answer (internet vacation during Christmas time... lolll). Thanks for all your answers, there is some very interesting points :-) I will try some things and let you know about it during my racing season! :-)
  8. Here are the schools I did since 2003: ADL Promoto, niveau 1-2 /2003 FAST Riding school, niveau 1-2 /2004 RACE Riding school /2004 Penguin Racing School /2005 California Superbike School, niveau 1 /2005 Fast Riding School, niveau «R» / 2006 Fast Riding School, niveau «R» / 2007 California Superbike School, niveau 2-3 /2008 As long as I will race or ride on track, I will try for sure in the future, to do a minimum of 1 school a year, I always have some things to lear! I have so many great answers here (thanks!), because my english is not good, I have tried to understand the best
  9. Well... interesting... Survival reaction, maybe! For sure I am not scared about crashing... If I was, I wouldn't race! I am more worried about the bike... lollll I am putting so much money on it and it's the only one I have... Yes here, there is schools who teach to keep the head over the tank, but this is not what I am trying to do, I am trying to put together all what I have learn, especialy at the CSB...
  10. Here is my problem, when I am riding during pratices or trackdays, I usualy have «pretty good» technique (still have a lot of room to improve but, not bad! lolll). But when I am racing, not always, but if I am under «pressure» or if I am a little bit faster that what I am used to be, I am loosing my technique and sometimes «forget» to hang off... That problem appear around 2 years ago when I became faster, when I am doing track days I am riding slower that I could and hang off a lot (like on the rain) to put the habbit in my mind... but as soon as I am in pressure situation, the first thing
  11. They did not find the problem... we had a B bike that we cannot use during the race, but they remove almost all the parts on it to put on our A bike and the troublem wasn't fixed unfortunately... I thought that was a problem with the pump because when the bike was very lean, the trouble was worse and when I get it up that was better... And it was like if the bike was running out of gaz... but they change almost all the parts about that also... Looks like an electrical problem... At the end I cannot go faster then 90km/h and over 8RPM, on the banking, that sucks! lollll
  12. Here is my newsletter from Daytona DAYTONA, SUN TRUST MOTO-ST: GENEVIEVE LESIEUR IS BACK On October 18, in Daytona, the Sun Trust Moto-St hosted for the first time in its history a women’s team. Racer Genevieve Lesieur had the chance to participate in this prestigious 8-hours long endurance race, along with Marie-Josée Boucher (Canada) and Melissa Paris (USA). The three young women —invited by Vallely Racing— began their on-track training on Thursday: “I’ve already been on this track two years ago, but the configuration was different, so I have been able to familiarize myself with the tra
  13. I did my last race week-end on past sept 26 to 29... Yes that's cold here! I finished 2nd and 2nd in the double heather of the WCC Expert... On the sunday race I unfortunately did a wrong choice of tires, it started raining 15 minutes before the race, so I decided to put rain tires... but it stop raining and the track was totaly dry when I went on the starting grid... I was the only one on rain tires... lollll... Oh well, experience! I finished 2nd but very far from the 1st place that I usualy fight with... BUT, I l've learn a lot and I was only alf second slower from my best lap times (
  14. Thanks to all for welcoming me! Yes I was at Mid Ohio... lollll... I improve soooo much since that time! We had a great year racing with Misti here in Canada, that's sad that she's not racing with us anymore, but she have for sure better opportunities! :-)
