Because they moved Vet races to Saturday I will have to race on Sunday, lucky Race 13 at 12:45pm - Novice Heavyweight.
I will also race unclassified at 7:30am to get familiar with the course. Usually I manage at least 3-4 laps before the checker flag drops, and it really helps in the main race.
Hey Dennis... good luck man. I may come out to watch. I don't know about Grand Prix being easier than desert racing. Ive never gotten arm pump racing in the desert. Not that Im any sort of expert - Ive only ridden in one GP (I think it was a GP, the 24hour at Glen Helen) and one desert race. Anyway, it should be fun.
