isnt that an awesome shot?! that was just a guy at the end of the first loop that took that..... amazing shot. and yes you can see the strain on the bike as I liberally add throttle.



the clubs are given two weeks to post the results for their race and its only been a week..... im DYING to see how well I did. After the first race the results were posted the next day so I Just figured that was the way it happened. I should have asked when I finished but the ice cream truck beckoned.

inversely, It would be bizarre to be racing under trees..... its just so common to crest a hill and have desert in front of you as far as the eye can see!! I have crashed more than once just taking in the view.

here is a video from our club AA hotshot. Plenty of trees .

Wow! You guys must get stuck in the tree ALL Time time down there!

I liked the bridge over the water too - that must get a little hairy with big crowds.....do you carry a knife to fight off the crocs?



my bike would be REALLY wrong for your kind of racing - i definitely need something much smaller

[QUOTE=eatpasta]new pics - just got these from the resident photog, "Grumpy"



That's the money shot right there. The other guy's pics are OK, nice that he offered them for free, but not much action. I like when they catch you actually doing something, not just riding through flat desert.

The race car photogs would always do the same thing, same corner, in hotlaps with nothing going on and then wonder why you don't want to buy their pic that looks like the other 10 or 15 they took that season

not going to make it out this weekend, Mike.

The wife and I are going to spend a chill weekend together and relax a bit. I gotta keep her happy if i expect to keep her as my umbrella girl!



Not sure when the next race is that Ill make it out for.... im going to be out of town in the end of March so mid april is going to be the earliest. Im REALLY going to have to stay on top of my fitness because complacency is going to be very easy when not racing.

The level of fitness required in order to be competitive for one of these whole races is staggering....
