The guy that finished first is late 20's/early 30's on a late model Suzuki 400 moto, he's in good shape and rides all the time. He runs the llantera moto repair here. 2nd was a guy from BC on a late model Beta, early 30's, expert level rider.
3rd and down were a couple of teens and twenties fearless mex kids on watercooled 250's, perfect for the terrain.

The son of #1 rider (who rode in the 16 and under group) asked me how old I was. Me and his dad joked about that for a while. He translated to espanol "old enough to be your grandpa!" Suffice to say I was at least twice the age of all but one or two of the 20-odd moto racers.

And they only ran 3 laps, I ran 4 (16 miles)! I held up 4 lap markers at the awards meet. We all had a good laugh over that!

If I hadn't dropped a concrete block on my toe I'd ride with 'em again on Sunday; can't get bumping foot in boot.
