so I was reading a recap on RacerX of Red Bud. they said the approach to Larocco's Leap was shortened and most of the 250's weren't tripling it. which sounds about right from my brief time there.

I gotta say on Friday the amateurs run the pro track, and the 65cc riders were as usual NOT intimidated. and were giving the Leap all it could handle. Obviously they weren't tripling it but many did try to double it, and a lot did. No they didn't make it look easy and yes a lot of them came down in less than fine form but god damn it they tried. I finally had to leave I couldn't take the stress. One of them would wad it up and the flagger is trying to slow down the oncoming riders and you've got a bike and a dazed 7 year old crawling off the track. Down goes the $12,000 worth of camera and lens onto the dirt and I'm pulling bikes and bodies off one of the biggest MX jumps on the planet. This one small kid lawn darted and high sided all in one tragic flash and he immediately gets up, dazed, screaming, I think oh shit this kid is hurt and he's really hurt I start wading in and he's shouts out "my bike is on the track" I grab it, we brush him off, fire it up and off he goes. I guess he was upset he went down and lost a spot or two.

These nationals with amateur Friday/Sunday are a lot of bang for the buck if you're into MX.

I'm leaving for Buds Creek in the morning.

Finally finished watching the 250's. Martin looked great, as did Roczen.

Can Langston please stop sucking Pourcel's dick anytime soon. Until he actually gets a good result at least?


Great pics flug

Medical equipment costs more than lenses.

We all know that Herlings are looking some US venture, but RV to race in Europe from 2015 or 16? Kawa has opened a spot for a CLass A rider. Kawa might need some muscle to shut off KTM/Cairoli?

Rumours are that his house is sold, but can´t find anything on this.

ANyone.

Laserboy joining his pace car brother for the last 2 Canadian rounds.

With Friese already looking to get his ass kicked, we could see one hell of a good brawl in the pits up there.
