No races in August.... Central Village Ct on 7/28 which is a great track, great soil and only 2 hrs away. Bikes are always available for any GS pilots that want to wring out a 125.
Then Englishtown NJ and Tomahawk in West Virginia for September.

After the racing on Sunday they open the track up for a free ride so this is just some fun laps on the big track.

We rode at the test facility in the heat on Sunday which was killer. My motivation in this picture is a 18 yr old on a 450 trying to catch me(he couldn't)

Rode at the country club today with a friend on his yz 250, I was a pussy and didn't jump some of the new doubles but the new whoops went on forever and I was able to get some speed through them. They wear you out though but the faster you go the smother you are but have to concentrate so hard on throttle control and body position to maintain that it is exhausting...

very cool. way to let that 250 know the 125's might be 1/2 the size but twice the heart!

Rain Rain go away.... It has rained the last 2 years at Central Village, the track is sandy so it can take it but was looking forward to a nice day...

Last year on 7/27 riding #727 in the rain at Central,

Work has made it hard to think about racing and I was ready to bale on the weekend.
Being busy at work is great (because I haven't been in a long time) but really, at this age I gotta race when there's a race so I left work a little early to get ready. AND I'M READY! Truck is loaded, bikes are gassed up the cooler is ready to role.
Were friggen racing tomorrow, 5:00 am departure time. Race report to follow...

*Note about the helmet cam. On race day I always forget to put it on my helmet, not sure why (racing day butterflys is why) but I intend to wear it tomorrow if for no other reason than so Flug can see it.
I'm going to bed...
