Race weekend! Broome friggen Tioga!
Destination this weekend is former National track Broome Tioga in Bingamton Ny, one of the best stops on our schedule featuring HUGE elevation changes with almost all natural terrain with a small SX section that includes a national caliber whoops section ending in a big gap double into a corner and then table right hander and a huge double into an uphill sweeper that you end up bleeding from the top of if you follow anyone up it because the shale rocks will cut you deep if you get hit by one....good time!

Saturday is a regular vintage race day but my 89 just ain't right so the YZ will be filling in for the weekend and the Mini will hopefully be king of the hills which as I said before are HUGE, so am psyched for it!

Sunday is a 45 min GP race on the grass track (GNCC like). They than have a team race on the grass track which was a ton of fun last year and then they open the whole old National track for open practice so there is no lack of riding time all weekend long.

I need to make sure I have enough gas for the bikes! leaving early afternoon for the long trek to the middle of the state for a weekend of pure unadulterated racing.

Race report coming.....

Broome!



It was very HOT Friday night until the sun went down and then it was beautiful.

Saturday we got hit with a wicked storm around noon,thunder ,lightning, highwinds, they stopped the racing for about an hr but the sun came out and the track dried up so we got the day in.
