he won it fair and square. talk about a heartbreaker.





Chuckie's been wearing the same gear all season long. Some of these guys have fresh gear for every practice and heat and a motor home the size of a locomotive. NOBODY rides as hard as this kid. He went down last weekend and dislocated a thumb and had to call it a day. this guy rides a 2007 RM 250 2 stroke in ways that would make Ricky Charmichael to say I was bummed is putting it mildly. poor guy must be aching. a true moto junkie warrior and one hell of a rider.

so thats the story. this season is finis. over. stick a fork in it it's done.

so with todays hurricane sent home from work (the scott's play golf in worse than this) and putzing around face book, yet another kid in a hospital bed. concussion, from yesterdays race no less. this sport is no joke and it pisses me off to no end when I see the attention prestige and pedestals these jackoffs in the NBA and NFL have bestowed and are placed on. World Peace?

Big Asshole more like it.

So in the last month probably got about 2000 freaking pictures to tweak, ponder, stare at, trying to figure out what it all means, but I already know the answer.

other people have boats floated by other things. mine is floated by motocross. it works for me and I can't even do it anymore and probably never could, though I sure wish I'd have ridden the 125 class back in the 70's. did I ever tell the story about the time I had the hole shot on a TM 125 and all these guys on RM's were....

thanks mates. I miss it already. past 2 weekends were saturday/sunday affairs and with nothing this weekend it seems like a year ago. the more I see it the more amazing it is. todays riders just don't have a clue how incredibly far skill levels have progressed too. was talking to someone last weekend and Justin Barcia's name came up. he was a local here until he got to be about 13 and then Honda said sign here, and him, mom and dad moved south, rode year round and the rest is history, or in the making. he said even when he was on the 65cc bikes he passed pretty much everyone on the track during an open practice. the 65's are incredible as they can go through whoops like greased lightning and basically never leave the ground.

just incredible. read about the new 2013 Honda 450 for mind boggling as to how serious the factories are about making them work better. if the japanese start putting e-start on the bikes I may not be able to resist temptation. I need to buy a D4 asap to prolong my life. just once. just once I'd like to jump and whip like these riders do on a regular basis. anyway 2 weeks ago I went to Hurricane Hills MX just north of Scranton for their last event of the year. One of my favorite riders is New Jersey's Samantha Fritz and she just turned 24 and rides with the guys and gives them more then they can handle and then some. no she doesn't win agains them but she doesn't finish last either and she's not even that big. her dad big Joe Fritz rides plus 40 A and is no slouch himself and owns Hurricane Hills track. Very cool track and they've got Krispy Kreme and Waffle House's over there. What more does a man need?

lets have a look at HH.

early morning look down the "elevator" which is 2 jumps back to back. the kids have crested the take off of the #2, the flaggers stand is at the take off of #1. it used to be one big jump which the FAA made them change to 2 but as Joe Fritz owns a blasting and excavation company he's got plenty of earth moving eqpt to move mountains.



later in the day look, the bulldozer tracks have been replaced by ruts and the morning shadows are gone.

Delewares Coty Schock came up from Deleware with his race face on. he's running this bike as part of his pre practice session engine warm up.

he told me it was a 105cc and you had to build them from 85's. it's got bigger wheels than a stock 85 cc and with this kid on it you, me, or even Rabia would have about as much of a chance of keeping him in sight as the Tigers did of beating the Giants.

none.
