REAL racers BUILD a race bike. And REBUILD it after each race. They don't buy an 800lb trail machine and try to track it, then plead ignorance or "fraud" when it breaks.
Although I agree 100% with your intent, I do have one correction to make.
Real Racers - Have a real race bike GIVEN to them and all maintenance and overhauls are on the team. Ride for a living and are paid as such.
Privateers - Buy their own bikes or may be sponsored bikes but they aren’t factory circuit bikes and they have sponsors that help with prep, maint, etc. but are still working full time jobs in most cases.
Wannabes (I fell into this category when I was a kid) - Ride their asses off because in your mind you think you have a shot. You ride a bike that is prepped as best you can with the funds you have and head out each and every time hoping nothing breaks. If something breaks then your going to have to run the same tires and top end you did last week to afford the repairs.
I had some sponsors but nothing to write home about.
The Scrambler is a “CAPABLE” machine, but like anything you’re going to race, it cannot be taken off the shelf and beat on without major upgrades and maintenance. I knew this, but didn’t know to what degree until it was too late. I thought I maintained it good, I was wrong. Gotta maintain it more.
