It likely won't. We just have an alternate plan.

You guys missed some good old bike racing this weekend! I was my own worst enemy in the Enduro races saturday and sunday. I crashed saturday in the special test and mangled my front end, lost a bunch of time beating it back halfway straight. Pretty sure my forks are bent now.

Sunday I had a great run going in the special test! I would have finished really well that day, but I missed an arrow and took a wrong turn. I dropped quite a few minutes so that day was pretty well ruined.

It's been quite a while since I've raced, I gotta remind myself next time to control that adrenaline!

Sunday was the motocross portion of the race though so I finally redeemed myself! I got a bit of a bad start and was in 3rd off the line, but passed those guys about halfway through the first lap. Was a darn good time. There was some bar banging going on getting past the guy on the 500! My little 200 just couldnt touch him on the straights so I just had to dive in on him in the corners. Heres a few photos a friend sent me.

Had to watch a guy get flighted out friday eve. Not sure of the specifics, but heard that a guy was riding wfo near the trailhead on the road and an atv pulled out in front of him. Pretty ugly deal. One sweet helicopter though!

I don't have any saved, but I could put something together in time. I'll go to the thread and see how much interest there is.

I have always wanted a ride in a helicopter, but I will pass on the Life-Flight.

I don't think it's free. I'd hate to get the bill for one of those scenic tours.

I got to fly on this one a few years back.



A buddy used to work for Eurocopter and while we were on a ride up around Deals Gap he had to spend a day doing some work to it. Stephen Ross who owns the dolphins also owns a country club in Johnson City TN.

The pilot took us up for a test flight. Got to do some low level flying over a lake. The boaters were freaking out about it.
