Five Miles Tour: Springfield

Five Miles Tour: Springfield | Desmopro News | Scoop.it
Race one of the "Five Miles Tour" is now in the history books and mixed emotions are what we have have to report.  Watching Troy Bayliss come to America and take on the iconic Springfield Mile, watching him get better and better, gaining lap times and confidence on a learning curve that was nothing short of impressive was our privilege to watch.  This is a sport, a skill and a track that most racers never master and the ones that do take years to do it.  By the final qualifier I was standing on the guardrail in awe watching him ride the outside of another rider, bars almost touching thru a rough patch of track, bike bucking over the bumps and Troy hard on the gas.  It was really fun to watch and judging by his face when he pulled in at the end, a whole lot more fun to do.  
Also pretty great was watching Johnny Lewis consistently turn in times and results that make it clear the Lloyd Brothers build great Ducati race bikes. Johnny's day ended with a freak equipment failure by a non-Ducati part used by many others in the field. He took a pretty good spill and that, while obviously a part of racing, was scary for everyone that saw it, and a setback to the program in that the teams all leave directly from Springfield to head for California and the Sactomile, so no free time to fix it before next weekend. There is a backup bike and that's most likely what Johnny will race next weekend. 

 
Being part of this team, this program and of course the Ducati family is the kind of adventure that Ductalk and Ducati.net feel really lucky to be part of. Watching new fans discover this form of motorsport is fun as well. Flat track is likely the most respected type of motorcycle racing by the racers themselves. Riders need to be tough, and brave and skilled.  Lloyd Brothers Motorsports has two such riders. How cool is that?

It starts out as a Mark3 and ends as a Scrambler but it's a cool video set in a great old shop, even if it's movie magic...

Translated by Google: 


Ducati motorcycles - the sightings continue the highly anticipated Ducati Scrambler, this time it was paparazzi with the colors and details that made immortal the original model of the years 60/70: superstructures yellow tank with chrome inserts, high handlebars, the line seems successful and as required by the decidedly retro fashion now -

‘67 350 Ducati Scrambler AKA The “Tree Fiddy” AKA “The Ducrapi” AKA “The
Duchti”

‘67 350 Ducati Scrambler AKA The “Tree Fiddy” AKA “The Ducrapi” AKA “The <br/>Duchti” | Desmopro News | Scoop.it

67 350 widecase scrambler motor (non desmo) and frame, stock motor, frame delugged and rear loop pulled in. Yamaha R5b forks up front and 13” shrouded shocks from a BSA out back. Akront rims (21” and 18”) laced to Ducati hub in rear and Yamaha 175 hub up front. Mystery tires that I sanded all the lettering off of. Battery is tiny, coil is from a Yamaha. The giant handlebars are from the ‘60s. Seat is a chopper pillion pad and the gas tank is a narrowed Yamaha tank with Italian petcocks. Megaphone is short, thick and loud (just how I like my women).

good job of stuffing up a decent bike - hope the Honda carb sucks his brains out cause we all know where it is located -;)

This is partly because of the technology – the Ducati Scrambler in the 60s were single-cylinder engines with 250, 350 or 450 cc – and secondly because the scrambler long since evolved to have enduros.

Lloyd Brothers Motorsports Ducati Team head West for the famous Sacramento Mile

Lloyd Brothers Motorsports Ducati Team head West for the               famous Sacramento Mile | Desmopro News | Scoop.it
  • Round 2 of the TB21 "Five Miles" Tour is Saturday, May 30th

Troy Bayliss, Johnny Lewis and the Lloyd Brothers Motorsports Ducati team compete this weekend in the 50th running of the AMA Pro Cal Expo Sacramento Mile. Regarded as one of the toughest stops on the team’s “Five Miles Tour” because of its long, fast straights and tight corners and loose top soil, it’s also one of the most historic. 2015 is the 50th running of the Sacramento mile at the current fairgrounds but the 101st running of the event in Sacramento, making it one of the most historic races in the world.


Troy Bayliss and Johnny Lewis will be competing on custom framed, 1100cc Ducati powered machines, purpose built to turn left, channeling the spirit and style of the famous Scrambler Ducati.


Fan excitement has been high, with the arrival of the three time world superbike champion Troy Bayliss. Sacramento is the only mile race in the western part of America and California is the number one Ducati market in the USA, a potent combination for excitement. Numerous Ducatisti are expected, many of whom are visiting an AMA Pro Flat Track race for the first time. The Sacramento Mile is offering a special Ducati ticket package that includes Ducati parking and an air conditioned lounge. To purchase the Ducati package call 1-844-SACMILE and reference the Ducati package. For fans that cannot attend in person the entire day, from the first practice to the final checker flag of the main event will be broadcast live and viewable on any mobile platform or computer, free, on Fanschoice.TV


The Sacramento Mile APA Pro Flat Track race gets underway on Saturday at 2:15pm Pacific Time with first timed practice, and the 25-lap race is scheduled for Saturday at 9:25pm Pacific Time


Troy Bayliss (Lloyd Brothers Motorsports Ducati #21): I am enjoying my visit to America and the cross country trip with the team has been a bonus. It was great meeting so many new fans at Springfield, the flat track fans really made me feel welcome. I learned a lot there and I am looking forward to getting to Sacramento, and getting out on the track on my Ducati and putting what I learned last weekend to good use.


Johnny Lewis (Lloyd Brothers Motorsports Ducati #10): After having such a great day at Springfield (3rd qualifying and 2nd in the heat race) prior to the rough ending with the crash on the front straight, I’m more than ready to return to the track on my Lloyd Brothers Motorsports Ducati and have the successful day that I know we can have. I felt like a top five guy at Springfield, and even though it was our first outing on the bike and we had a few issues, I know we can run at the front this weekend.

Ducati Scrambler | Coming Soon - Motorcyclist Magazine | Desmopro News | Scoop.it

Ducati has lately done an impressive job penetrating new market segments with sophisticated (and expensive) models like the Multistrada and Diavel. The Italian manufacturer’s next major growth strategy, however, will likely target the opposite end of the price and performance spectrum with a new generation of inexpensive and accessible Scramblers.

Ducati Road 350 Custom | BikeEXIF.com | Desmopro News | Scoop.it

Building motorcycles is an art as well as a science. While some builders take it very seriously, others have a sense of irreverence. The lighter touch often seems to come from mainland Europe; the French outfit Blitz springs to mind, and another is Spain’s El Solitario, run by David Borras.
‘Chupito’ is the latest from El Solitario, and is based on a 1977 Ducati Road 350. These nimble singles were marketed under the Ducati name, but were actually built by the short-lived Spanish company MotoTrans, which was taken over by Yamaha in the 80s.

Memorable Motorcycle: Ducati 450 Scrambler | Motorcycle-USA.com | Desmopro News | Scoop.it
For this edition of Memorable Motorcycles Frank Melling presents the 450 Ducati Scrambler - a bike ahead of its time but full of quirks.

If ever a bike needed to be put into context it is the Ducati 450 scrambler – and the key to understanding this rather lovely motorcycle is to appreciate just how big motocross was in the late 1960s and early 1970s. Today, if you ask a MotoGP fan who the current World Motocross Champion is, you would be lucky to get any answer – let alone an accurate one.

Not so 40 years ago. Road riders and circuit racing fans were heavily involved in the motocross scene and knew the factories and bikes as well as they could recite the exploits of legendary road racers like Mike Hailwood and Giacomo Agostini....more here: http://www.motorcycle-usa.com/289/12775/Motorcycle-Article/Memorable-Motorcycle--Ducati-450-Scrambler.aspx
