Mohammed Al-Darwish redlit in the Pro Bike final against Round 1 winner Terry Schweigert

Schweigert, Dan Wagner, Al Lash, Joe Taranto, Meshal Al-saber and the Mason kids ham it up

“Lovin’ life right now,” said Terry “Milkman” Schweigert after delivering his second straight Pro Bike at Qatar for DTM and Q80. “Definintly riding the wave and hope to keep it going. I’m the clutch guy and get to ride the Beast, definitely on one of the top teams. We all have a role in the program and all put in 100%, and it’s paying off, and we are not blowing up engines.”

“Got three more on the floor,” chimed in Dan “The Man” Wagner.

“Dan’s work ethic is unreal and he is our leader,” continued Schweigert, some 20,000 Qatari riyals richer from this win alone. “Love him or not he gets things done. Big thanks to Al Lash, Joe Taranto, Dan and Kathie Mcgregor, and my family for their support. Also my sponsors World Wide Bearings, Robinson Industries, Vance and Hines, ARC, Lectron, Eatmyink.com and Q-80.”

Due to what has been called “the stupidest system ever,” Schweigert was able to claim records for both ends at less than he’s actually run.

Mohammed Al-Darwish and new tuner Scott Gray delivered this weekend, carrying the Al-Anabi bike all the way to the final

’10 superstar Bader Ben Eidan and Billy Vose share the joy with rider Mohammed Al-Beddah. Yaqoub Alali, also in the pic, rode the bike to last week’s win and the earlier wins in Bahrain. Alali was aback on his own bike this weekend.

Is it me, or has Al-Beddah packed on some weight since 2010? He rode Mike Mocny’s old Outlaw to many wins that year.
