FLAT OUT. Netherland’s Moto Adonis Dominate Flat Track With A Honda NX650
It’s been six months since we touched down in Parma, Italy, and made our way to the inaugural Wildays show. Of all the show’s highlights, one stands out from all the rest. The flat track racing. Moto Adonis’ Daan Borsje was dead keen to have a go. So keen, in fact, that he organised a team uniform from John Doe; a team that somehow I was a part of. Next thing you know, we were all going hell for dusty leather on Yamaha SRs. I was smitten and so was Daan. But Daan had the drive to actually do something about it. And the next thing you know… Here’s Daan to explain the madness.
Why is Moto Adonis racing a tracker? When I heard about the Hells Race in Lelystad a while ago something triggered me. Maybe it was just because you can race your street bike with almost no adjustments in their hooligan class. Basically, you can have tons of fun for almost zero money. What’s not to like?
Then Pipeburn asked me to go to Wildays, which had a flat track course. I talked to Timo of John Doe Clothing and Andrew from Pipeburn and somehow they agreed to try this crazy sport with me while we where down there. Of course I crashed (So did I – Andrew), but I have not had that much fun in a long while. Playing in the dirt like a child, feeling the throttle in the corners, eating dust… what’s not to like!
