That race looks like alot of fun! Next year I may be on board with that one but for now I might have to stick with the BrunoTreks.

I want a second crack at the hillclimb with the klr. That bike and I have some unfinished business.

Love that video. 2010 seems like it was a while ago. That was on my old bike, hell that was 7 or 8 bikes ago for Dfrnt. Also, is it GLDS season yet?! I'm starting to loose my mind over here. I want to go riding up north.... NOW!

That was my first year with the GLDS, wow I feel like I'm a much more confident rider now.
...speaking of which...
I've been riding my snowmobile as much as I can, and although is not even remotely as awesome as riding bikes it is still fun. It is also quite dangerous, I had a real scare last weekend: 10:30pm, I was riding by Chandler Hill, fantastic trail, and my buddy Joe was behind me. I came up on a nice steep hill and as soon as I crested over to the other side I found a snow cat groomer coming my way, taking the whole trail with the front plow. I could not stop on time so I steered left and came to a stop squeezing between the tree line and the cat's track, I turn around and here comes Joe, BAM! The sled crashes on the snow plow and Joe flies by my feet. He was extremely lucky, he hit the plow with his leg and messed up his right calf muscle, tweaked his knee, but didn't break a single bone, didn't hit his head or chest.
It was a strange experience, a scary one. The Wolverine area is my favorite in the LP, but man, let's be extra careful on those blind hills because they are dangerous.
To be noted that the DNR recently removed the "steep hill" warning sign due to new regulations, and the snow cat was going in the wrong direction.

So what to do now? I'm shell-shocked, but the show must go on, right? Jump back on it boy!
This weekend: Newberry and beyond!!!
