My brother is coming with us to the MWXC race in Brazil, IN... I am so pumped

Also the conditions should prime, not too dry and not too wet

Cry Is my riding season over??

My box ran over my ankle (note the clear spot on the bottom of the box) in a slippery mud/clay slide. 9 days ago. Dent in the MC boot. Nothing broken but hurts like hell. Anyone out there experienced this?? And most importantly.. How long did your recovery take?

I was there too, I promise!





It was a very tough track that chewed up bad riders on small bikes (like me!) and spit them out. I'll get to the the video editing in a day or so.

Truth and truth

Forgot to post GQ shacking up in the dangervan with my brother... Don't get jealous BBF...



It really was a beautiful property, with some huge hills.







Unfortunately the camera died before I hit the tires on my third lap, in third gear, rode a huge nose wheelie for the crowd, then nearly endo'd down the hill. I was expecting the checkered flag that lap, but got the white flag and I quit anyway. I was just too beat and too dehydrated, making too many stupid mistakes, and I really didn't want to join the number of guys already crashed, stuck, or broke down on the side of the trail.

Anyway here is some onboard of my riding. Wound up 11/41 in C Lites, 66/176 OA
