    Like they said last night, it's all new too them. They're learning as they go. They've made some nice improvements. And with more practice I think it'll get even better.

    I'm really glad they put a cameraman on the turn 3 camera :D

    The only thing I got to see was the main event after I got home from work. All I can say is :clap :clap:clap . I hope that they plan on streaming every flat rack event this year. This is to me the most exciting form of motorcycle racing.

    Cameras 1 & 2 had garbled sound, camera 3 had good sound. Of course it isn't too great to watch fixed cameras like 2 & 3.

    Still not overly impressive. No comparison to real TV coverage.

    Maybe if I can get the signal to the TV...

    Last night I didn't even switch off the primary feed. Which had 2 manned cameras following the action. I don't recall any real sound problems. I had a really good time watching it. The freehand/roaming camera work that came in occasionally between the races was a nice touch. Actually seeing the announcers as they were killing time during a track maintenance break that one time was nice. It was cool to put faces with those hard working voices :clap

    Overall, sure it was a little rough at times. But hey, it was the first weekend. And I never hated it.

    ^^^^ F*ck! Awesome photos. Love Mikey Rush looking into the corner with the bike so completely sideways and Coolbeth's obvious joy on the victory lap. Looks like I have some new screensavers.

    Just got the news that the Sacramento Mile has been cancelled. Hugely bummed and kind of shocked because the Mile sold out every year since its return and Bob Bellino is one of the best promoters in Flat Track with a true love for the sport. He even doubled the purse last year to help teams after the rainouts in Springfield and Lima. And the Sacramento Mile is just fantastic with a great venue and racing under the lights.

    Horse racing industry wins another round.


    Santa Rosa Mile is still a go.

    Bob is such a good man. He's been dealing with the enviro-wackos for about 60 days. Holding him ransom over calcium chloride.

    In happier news...
    The San Jose Indoor Short Track is tonight!
    www.sanjoseindoor.com

    If you can get there I highly recommend it. Motorcycle racing on polished concrete in a cage. What could possibly go wrong? :evil

    Practice last night was a blast. There are sooo many cool vintage bikes racing and at least 8 AMA pros who've turned up to compete for the pro purse and put on a show.

    The Clubmans British bike show is just an added bonus.

    Stop by the Nor-Cal Short Track booth and say hi if you attend.

    It goes deeper than this issue. So let's move on and sell out Santa Rosa.
    Beautiful setting, awesome cushion. No rain out guaranteed! Bellino gives
    all to us fans, we must support the effort.
