We brought the DeVol Engineering Support rig to the Helena and Great Falls races and had a really great time. The best working vacation guys like us could ever have. Over the 2 weekends we setup the suspension on well over 40 bikes. About 1/2 the bikes had settings and adjustments so far out of whack it was amazing the guys were going race speed. Or trying to! We're going to make the Montana working vacation deal a yearly event, so we can keep our customers in Montana dialed in. Racing on the tracks our customers are racing on is important to provide the proper settings. We do this same support in the Pacific Northwest and have a massive following of customers that we take very good care of. Royce and I raced 3 classes over the 2 weekends and won 9 of 12 moto's with the worst finish being 2nd. Couldn't do it with stock suspension. We can't say it enough about the nice people in Montana. Everyone we met over the 2 weekends of racing was nothing but great Americans. And it was great seeing a huge number of 50cc riders at both the rounds. That's our future.
Glad you guys had fun and were here to support our MT riders! Its always good to see this kind of support. Thanks! And I know what ya mean about clickers being off, I have a friend (but I won't mention any names here...right Adam?) who is super fast and has never touched his rear comp. suspension clickers. I was like....uhhh dude! LOL.
I may not win, but it won't be because I quit! (Lion-O, Lord of the Thundercats.)
Thanks for coming out Ted and Royce! We really enjoyed chatting with you in Helena. You guys really are all about helping the riders, and that was appreciated. Next time bring your dual sport and fly rod and we will find some other ways to have fun too! See ya next year!

Ya Jason, duel sporting in Montana has got to be unbelievable. gman. I think I may have used those exact words a few time while setting guys bikes up. Uhhhhh dude, this is a two wheeled pogo stick. OR. Uhhhh dude, this thing will pack up on the second bump you hit. (#7 on the KTM and all the stock KXF 450's.)
It's pretty amazing what riders will adapt to and race.
We enjoy getting riders set up better and it's the best way for us to generate loyal customers.
Thanks again to the Helena and Great Falls clubs and the Big Sky crew for allowing us to work the event.
