John Doll LRRS/CCS Expert #29 email: john dot doll at danahall.org
2008 marked my eigth season of racing. After a number of mechanical setbacks in 2007, I was happy to have a solid year in 2008, finishing 4th in the LRRS 125 GP championship with four podium results. I only narowly missed out on 3rd place in the Championship, despite missing the first two weekends of the season with work commitments. In 2008 I came to terms with the new Tigcraft chassis, making a few geometry changes and turning in my second best Loudon race lap with a 1:20.003 in the early September 125 GP race.
I also had the opportunity to ride a Honda RS250 and RS125 this year and had a great deal of fun on the two-strokes. In fact, on September 28, in my first day ever riding a 125, I managed to put the Honda on the box, with a second place finish in the expert 125 GP race. Most importantly, in 2008 I got back to having a lot of fun at the racetrack, and I can't wait for 2009 to begin.

Lesley is an earth science and math teacher at the Dana Hall School in Wellsley MA. She first began riding on the street in 2000. After watching John race for several years and riding at track days, she began racing a Honda RS125 in 2007.
Lesley completed a successful 2008 season with two wins in the Novice 125 GP class, and several podiums in Novice Light Weight GP. She came close to her 2008 time goal, but fell a few tenths short of breaking into the 20's, with a best lap time of 1:30.3 at NHIS. When not riding, she also enjoys hiking and climbing. She's played almost every sport available, including women's football where, as quarterback, she led her team to the 1997 season championship.

She also plays in a women's fastpitch league in Newton Mass., where her team won the 2008 championship with only one loss.
