That is the problem, he is going through instead of over :) Judging by the pictures and videos this was one epic course. Next year I'm doing it.

Who is racing this weekend at Pala GP? I'm heading out on Saturday night.

Took private motocross lesson on Monday, it turns out I was doing absolutely everything wrong. With my new skills and a little bit more confidence I could probably finish a place or two ahead of where I was last time. Picture from training:

The sun was going down, there was smoke in the air from huge transformer fire nearby, and my friend who took this shot is pretty damn good. I love it!

One on one with Travis Preston. It was more valuable than I expected, it turns out I was doing pretty much everything wrong. We even practiced starts, I will be able to grab all holeshots from now on :)

So are you going to race dez or moto? Desert starts are dead engine and tricky to master.

My main goal is to get better as a rider. Now that I know some basics I could polish my skills. 10 years of bad habits will not be easy to get rid of though. I'm still down for a lesson or two from you.

I don't know about lessons, but I would be happy to go riding with you and give you any pointers I can offer. On the other hand, I'm fairly certain there are "Experts" out there that would tell me I'm doing it all wrong as well

This past Sunday I was able to make it to Vikings GP at Pala Raceway. It was great - perfect weather, nice tacky track and no dust. I managed to get 5th in Novice class. I could probably fight for forth but my friend stalled his bike in very narrow section on 1st lap and I was stuck waiting for about 30 seconds - that was my race. Man, they had some huge jumps there, I do not think my balls are big enough to start clearing them at my old age.



I was second coming into 2nd turn (first on this picture but there is one guy ahead)



Some sections were sandy and tricky, I kept looking where I didn't want to go and sure enough I always ended up there, right out of the main rut



We all had fun though. I could see how this could become addicting, I'm ready to repeat ASAP.

Motodisiac - great pics of the GP. It looks like your group sure had fun! I heard about it but couldn't make it up there. How big were the classes? I hear they combined the pro track and amateur tracks into one big loop? What was the atmosphere like? I'm all ears
