Rode today in Milford Ct, and the track was reversed from last years layout, long straightaway was a double,double,double,table,double(triple)single which I just could not muster up the balls to do but kept working on it, I overjumped,underjumped,smashed my balls, almost went over the bars multiple times, whiskey throttled and almost fell off the back but finally got the rythem and did it perfect consistently for ten laps.

The landing spaces are so small between these jumps that your timing has to be perfect and the throttle application then to jump the next one has to be spot on. Being on a 125 you don't have the convineience of a 450 and the "blip" of the gas to clear something.

It was very rewarding to be able to do this by the end of the day and makes me appreciate the pros in SX, I HAVE NO IDEA HOW THEY DO IT!

Good day....

"pain is good, it means your alive"

Rode Sunday at Southwick at a private rental day, limited to 40 guys and we have the whole place to our selves.

Track was ungroomed and dry as bone which made it soft like baby powder in some sections. I struggled the first two motos with arm pump and avoiding the huge holes left from the previous days race but on my third trip out I saw a freind of mine on his 450 so I tucked in in back of him and started to pick up the pace, honestly the faster you went the easier it was but his 450 was killing me and my 125 in places with not only roost that would blanket me but the sand robs everybit of horsepower so I took every creative line i could and drove as deep into corners as i could and actually passed him at one point.
I picked up the pace again and went as fast as I could to an inside berm while he was outside and hit some of the baby powder and tucked the front end stopping me in my tracks and sent me over the bars, not good.

As I flew through the air with arms flailing I thought to my self, no big deal I'll just land in the cotton ball soft sand and probably bounce back up. Well I landed on the side of the track on some ground that was like concrete and I don't have to tell most of you that 190lb 52 year old bodies don't bounce like the used to. I landed on my side from me knee to my shoulder with a thud that was probably picked up on someones Richter scale in Mexico. I hit so hard that it knocked the wind out of me and I couldn't open my eyes for porobably a minute, i heard guys stop to prevent me from getting run over which was a good thing. I sat up after a minute and was pulled to my feet a couple minutes after that, still in shock they started my bike and I rode back to the truck but couldn't even put the bike on the stand. My brother and son set me in a chair and gave my water which I drank but really wanted to throw up instead.

I ended up sitting the rest of the day popping advil and drinking water and finally drove 120 miles home at 5 or so, then I couldn't walk when I got out of the truck (actually I can never walk when I get out of the truck after riding but this was worse) and of course had to endure more pain as my wife explained to me multiple times how I was to old to do this. I think that was what she was saying but I wasn't really listening because we had recorded the SX race and had to watch that right away.

So I am fine but friggen sore, my ribs hurt, hip doesn't move, shoulder is bruised, leg feel like it was hit with a baseball bat....You know normal.

Supposed to rain this weekend so hopefully can ride Thurday night?
