The more I know about Zach Osborne, the more impressed I get.

I'll definitely be following him during the ISDE now that I'm armed with that knowledge!

Well, he never pointed out, of anything , so he is eligible.

Stupid move, less sponsor exposure, and 9th place in lites pays less than in 450's.

He can relive getting spanked by a scrawny kid on a green bike with a 3 digit number.


Wonder what brand of bike he'll ride?

I know that field was a little soft but I've spent enough time in the woods to know it must have been just a tad slick amidst the trees.

I was sore when I got home from humping to skyshot and back twice.

the GNCC series has to be THE under rated two wheeled series on the planet. when Charlie Mullins and Kalib Russell came by every time they were not more than a few seconds apart. they must have cut SOME FUCKING SWATH through the rest of the 1 o'clock group.

as much as I to MX I've always felt the really bad ass mo fo's rode cross country or whatever you want to call it. awesome stuff. defies logic. Unadilla GNCC 2013 set a SERIES RECORD GOING BACK TO THE 70's for entires with approx 1800 total. awesome. this event is more bang for the buck than anything. awesome.

and after all that...I don't think I got any shots of you...sorry!
The woods weren't that bad.
Some spots were tough but not brutal.
The last 2 laps the course was quite a bit better.

moving right along...

a few things. the October issue of RacerX is on the magazine stands now with Eli Tomac. I've made my humble photographic debut on the big stage on page 132. The small picture of Filthy Phil with my name on it. CAVALARI

Yes you knew me when.

Also the new MXA has the 2014 Yamaha YZ250F in it. They've gone with the rear slanting rear exhaust port on the 250 so so much for Yamaha abandoning that design.

Also the new 2014 450 appears to have undergone major changes. That engine now has a wet sump and no oil tank which means the previous ones had an oil tank which I did not know. Not that I know much. Also an article in RacerX about Metcalffe dominating the Canadian national series in hopes of landing a ride to back in the U$A.

Also for the 2nd time I've seen reference to the world championship rounds in europe not being able to draw full gates and possibly not even get 20 guys on the line?

times have changed....

First of all, congrats on making the big time. I am sorry I couldn't help out, I guess I have no more pull at CW.

I wonder if Europe would be a good place for U.S. mid-packers to race. I've read and watched stuff about how it's not really paying the bills for the guys outside the top 10, maybe the'd make more across the pond?

Canada was good for metcalf.


So why do you suppose Poto isint on Des nation team? He seemed to outride Dungey more times than not. Was it offered to him and he bowed out??

thanks. today page 132. tomorrow, the cover.

I'd have to think that there is less money in Europe for the mid packers unless they are no longer mid packers there. it certainly would be interesting to see how the 15-25 place outdoor riders from here did over there. money has to be pretty tight over there but the europeans always seem to have the funds to attend things in large numbers. I still can't believe (if it's true) that they have a hard time filling a gate but if they do they do. I'd really like to see Clement Desalle come race over here we saw him at Unadilla and he had top 3 speed.
