Thanks for posting that...

I still have a boxful of MX Action (and Dirt Bike) magazines in my attic.
Good to see Jody is still at it.

I guess its like KR doing those laps in 2009 at the Indy Mile. Once you have it, you never loose it. From the pics those guys are still in great shape.

My Dad used to tell me about watching "Feets" Minert racing back in the 50's. Said he was incredible to watch, along with the Ekins Brothers.

Desert racing is the same. The Senior (40+) class is the largest in D37. And we have guys in their 70's that still race regularly.

Special people all.... I was lucky enough to grow up in Southern California and watched in amazement at the talents of "Feets", Jim Hunter, and John "R".

Good to see some recognition of us old guys. How about the over 60 enduro guys? We ride more and stand around in the pits less.
