Just a lack of riders and money. We lost some key people and couldn't replace them. We have been trying to make it work, but there is no way we are going to do it competitively with only four riders.

We were testing the bike last night and finally came to the realization that we were trying to force it to happen and that's not a good thing.

That sucks. My team has been at that decision many times throughout this process but luckily I'm stubborn as hell and can convince my other personality to race.

Yeah, O'Neal/Winkleman team. I just met one of your guys last weekend, Boyer, Bill, Bob?

One guy bailed at the first whiff of financial crisis, no warning or anything, then Mike Korenwinder started having chest pains at the gym and ended up having 2 stints put in a couple weeks ago, we found some guys but then, and I don't want to go into details, we had another rider quit at the last minute. We tested last night, then had a little conference and decided it was time to throw in the towel. I am pretty bummed.

Me and my chase guy are going down to Loreto to help chase for our 21 team. And drink.

At the 500 we met up with him in Valle de Trinidad as he was getting fuel and buying a case of beer. The race course was going over "The Summit" which is real technical and had all of the car guys crying like little girls. LR was buying the beer because he had promised the guys with Baja Fools out on Laguna Salada (at the other side of The Summit) he would bring them beer if they werre going to be there. He had forgot the beer the first time so he was going back. He was like: "WTF it's not that bad, I'll just run over there drop the beer off and I'll see you back in Ensenada at dinner." Jajajajajajaja!
