A timekeeper is sometimes the equalizer. My points from loop 1 were due to arriving early at 2 checks by 1 min and 2 min. I got 2 pts for the first minute early and I guess 5 pts for the second minute. Being early is worse than being late.

Maybe I'm figuring this incorrectly, but if we just count only the super-short scores, it should be as follows:
1. Newner - 8 pts*
2. RDJ - 8 pts
3. DirtyDog - 9 pts

*Newner wins the tie-breaker because of his e-points (57 vs RDJ's 119)

Not sure why they have me ranked at 13th after the first loop.

dirty - that is just for that one specific test, you were 13th in C Class.

if you click the view option "running total score" it shows where you were placed as of each check, which shows you as 37th in C overall at the end of the 1st loop

and yes, the two minute hot burned check really added a lot to your first loop score. I once showed up three minutes early (trying to play the time keeping game, went early into the 80) and got a 12, that really sucked.

I always enjoy watching the pee wee races.



This little girl hauled ass-


Here's my Loop 2 footage. A bit more entertaining (at my expense). I didn't diagnose the problem until a while later, but my front brake was locking up on me. Ever try to ride offroad with a dragging front brake? Awesome, it was not.


And finally- the bling.

I managed a 3rd place finish with a large margin to overcome for 2nd place. Despite my brake troubles and burned checks in loop 1, I did ok and am satisfied with my finish. It is a belt buckle.


They had some "extra" trophies and both RDJ and Newner qualified within their class for a commemorative buckle-

Anybody feel like riding Stillwater again this Saturday?

No time keeping, no scoring, just fun blasting the trail

I may be in for Bristow. I thought it was 6/27, not 7/27.

I'll be at the MotoGP during the Wellston GP, but could maybe make the 3rd one at Jandebeur's.
