Disappointing weekend...
Friday was a mudfest, barely ridable at least for me. That West Virginia clay is some slippery stuff! The track is covered in woodchips, sawdust, some kind of topsoil (rotted woodchips and sawdust) that was very soft and rutted up from Fridays heave rain.I only rode a couple laps in practice and fell right away in a mud puddle, back down like a turtle and couldn't get up until I rolled over into a deeper section of mud and finally pulled my self and the bike out of it.

The weather did get better Friday afternoon and they graded the track after the practice was over and again Saturday morning. It appeared better but in my first practice session I made it 2 corners and the ruts were huge down the next straightaway, I messed up and dabbed my foot into some soft mud and it grabbed me twisting my knee and hip. 1 minute into race day and I was injured.

I ended up racing my first 2 motos but sucked in both of them so decided to retire for the day (a muture and responsible thing to do if I do say so) and lick my wounds.

Drove over 700 miles this weekend for about an hr of riding time at most.

Thats racing....

That's true and he rode great this weekend! I was out of it in the Mini class and it is a 2 gate drop(adults then kids) and I was first gate so I went off the track and waited for him so we could ride together and the kid passed me and I couldn't get him back..made me proud!

The mini class was intended to be DRZ's, TTR's and CRF's but the CRF 150R meets the rules so now everybody is on those and it's like a Ferrari racing a Oldsmobile wagon (with wood sides!) just not fair.

someone has to do it...thinking of launching an assault on the Pro Nationals to spectate. Bristol, Budds Creek, Southwick, Unadilla, High Pont, Red Bud, all doable, some more than others, Washougal on my wish list. It's easier to fly 5 hours than drive 12 anyway...

road trips?

Work and life has gotten in the way of my racing...not good.

I did race earlier this year at Tomahawk MX in West Virginia and had a terrible weekend, rain, ruts, twisted knee....

Last weekend was different. PERFECT weather, great track and good times.

Left early Friday afternoon and drove to Evansville Pa. to arrive to beautiful skies and perfect temps. Saturdays racing was great and although I didn't trophy I felt good with my riding.







In the mini class I had 2 motos of bar to bar action with my friend Renee, I beat HER first moto, SHE beat me 2nd moto. If I am to be beat by a girl I am happy to have it be Renee (She's my age(or about) and a great rider)


There might have been a weight advantage but I'm not going there

Sunday was a GNCC style race with 1- 45 min moto that I completed and captured 2nd in the vintage 80's and was a blast!

My son rode a friends 74 YZ 125 in the pre75 class, bike is 23 years older than him. He said it was "awful", I agreed but now he knows where I started...

Found a couple pics from Tomahawk, Jr on his 99.



Mini, nose high.



I got a hankering for a 250f which is never a good thing for the bank acct.

You can get a 2013 YZF 250 for $5500.00 now? I know it's not fuel injected but I have been using carbs for 40+years and never had an issue with them. Oy Vey....
