Still amazing, every time I see it, when a properly tuned Ultra4 machine can tackle the nastiest of climbs with ease. It’s as if “the line”, that is the exact right path in climbing an obstacle, didn’t matter. Shown here is Mr. Chicky Barton himself, launching his brand new Spider 9 powered IFS racer up The Wall. Chicky took 1st in the last east coast Ultra4 race, Ultra4s at Hot Springs, and grabbed 4th in Badlands. We are still waiting on series points, but for the East coast series it’s definitely a tight battle between Shannon and Chicky. With the final East coast race being a brand new venue for all, the Sturgis Dirtplex in Sturgis Kentucky, it really is anyones game.
