So now I am to fat(220?), to old (45 or so) and a pussy so how was I gonna do this? Well what little testoterone I had in me kicked in and I started to ride a lot more, work out and lose weight.
I also figured out that a smaller bike like a 250 fourstroke would make it easier than rastlin a 520 KTM and I started racing AMA dist 34 in NY,that was about 2004. I didn't know anybody at the track, I wanted to throw up all day long because I was so nervous but I just kept doing it and getting faster and losing weight.
I was racing a +40 novice class and I would see the same people at the finish line either right in back or front of me so I started to remember faces as we all were about the same speed. I would see the same guys at the open practices on Wednesday and wait on the side of the track and try to "engage" some competition so I could measure my speed against there's. I started to get comfortable on the bike and I started to get back in shape....
