Sandblast rally 2011?

So, who's planning on going? Trying to figure out next years racing schedule and thought I would check in

I was wondering which way you would go at the next event. I have to say that we missed you at the time controls at BRS The cousins want to race and expect my presence in some way. The 550 motor is getting some work done at the moment, so its probably a really good platform for SB.... Light and lots and lots of power

I suspect that Luke is not doing Sandblast so its more than likely I'll be on the fuel tanker

I'll probably be there.... not sure what class yet. I'd run the SE if I was guaranteed that there won't be the sloppy snot we had this year.

Crank, a 550 motor? That wouldn't be an Aprilia would it?

NO, NO !! I have an Aprilia SXV that is going to Pike's Peak, already close to single purpose mode with it and I cant afford to F' it up.
Looking for the money to get a used KTM or something, doesnt look good for a ride this year at sand blast(right now). Ideally, I would like to ride the 4(?) event series.
The Colorado trip takes alot away from the farm (June is a bad time to even go ) wife very tolerant, but I know "when to say when", the racing thing drained us for years back in the 80's and 90's.
I will lkely be going down, and would happily help out, if anyone needs(wants) it. I have a fair amount of experience.
