Roll 2- Garden Isle Grand Prix Vintage Motocross Race
Here we are into roll 2 from the motocross race in Kauai, Hawaii. Starting off with Brody McLaughlin entering his '79 Yamaha in with the 250 pro modern class. I did make Brody a jersey for this event, but it was our winter style jersey and was way to hot for him to race in. Our host Rick Hurst (his daughter former pro surfer Leila) had provided all the riders with hawaiian style button down shirts in which we we're all so thankful he did. In case your wondering what gear Brody is rocking; helmet Biltwell, goggles VonZipper and Redwing boots.

...then #17 David Dabin and #19 Kanon Douglas come out of nowhere
I think it's clear Ethan White is here for the party!

I would say Brody's back tire is around 9ft off the ground
Brody airing out in the backside of the track
With nobody to run with Brody just hung by himself (the other guy's were on modern 250's where his '79 had no chance) - "A" for effort
First time seeing Brody ride a vintage bike thanks to master surfboard shaper Chris Christenson

... and a first time for Brody riding this bike
