Thanks man. I'll hold the beer for him. I swear I won't drink it.
It was not smooth sailing the whole time. The starter had the green flag in his hand and Danny gets off his bike, looks at me in tears, and says "I'm too scared". I told him I was scared my first time too but I sucked it up and had a blast. He got back on and took off. Half way thru he fell and hurt his wrist. I happened to be down the trail watching. I made the mistake of helping get the bike off him. Here come the tears again. Tough love again and I sent him back down the trail. I asked him at the finish what he thought. He said it was awesome.
The bike stayed together so I guess I passed as the mechanic today too.
