We went into Springfield excited and optimistic fielding two riders, Michael "Itchy" Bickerton #28p (Expert) and Mitch Harvat #22a (Pro Twins). This would be "Itchy's" first race as a expert and would be riding the Bickerton/RRCF SV650 and Mitch would be riding the RRCF Kawasaki 650r.
Springfield TT "
It’s been awhile since I’ve been around an AMA Flat track race and it was really nice to see all of my American friends that I haven’t seen in over a year. I showed up at the TT with pretty low expectations, as I’m not a very skilled TT rider and I would be lining up against some of the riders I grew up idolizing. My main goal was just to get a little bit of seat time before jumping on the twin for the mile.
