At first glance I thought it was money flying out of his pocket.. BTW, Darius had a pretty good finish with maybe a 4th in class, 17th OA is C class? A little different terrain than NJ, huh.

Yeah, those were some of the boniest trails I've ridden. Constant boniness with no let up until you hit the grass track and short sand section. I had a horrible start and the bike died on me on the last lap right where that pic of dirty Joe was taken.

I posted a race report here... http://www.advrider.com/forums/showt...php?p=21044928

Plus yoga once or twice a week for core strengthening. I got on the scale sunday morning, imagine how good it felt to see 199!!
Time for a prescription from Capt. Red!! For cold pizza of course
Good job!

I've be tring to get to 199 for 5 years. I get to 205 every summer, the I usally get hurt and bang there's 5..LOL Stay with it.

John Ruffo was a darn good rider, My condolances to his family...

Hey guys, where is the Mt Misery hillclimb? Is it part of the normal loop, or is it an optional "spur" off the loop?

I'll be up there (first time) this weekend and I'd like to take a crack at it on the 610.
