    I rode in my first competition and learned a few things.

    I still make goofy faces. This one gave the wife and I a real good laugh.
    Doing 3 loops of 10 sections is physically and mentally exhausting.
    It is still more fun than I expected.
    I made a mistake thinking that participating in a sport that requires excellent balance and coordination would help me cut down my alcohol consumption because it would be detrimental to performance and frowned upon or at the very least discouraged. I was really wrong on this. :freaky

    HMMM, Beer and riding does not usually mix. I have had many a late saturday night at a two day event. Some swear I ride better hung over. Reality is it takes less energy to clean a section. People used to say I rode fast! (Beer is getting hot!) Last year I rode an event while drinking, say 3 beers a loop. ( I had an anger issue to prove a point) I was the only one to clean a particular hard section.:evil
    I have seen the first loop at a national with blood shot eyes and could not carry enough water to see! It was a nebraska event that was just soo much fun that I almost saw the sun rise sunday morning. The first loop was so bad I was crawling to walk the sections. I was only one of three riders (sportsman line) to have a clean loop.( I then drove all night home to ride a local event on labor day and finished!)
    Then more like Sting has mentioned have seen some bad crashes after 1 or less drinks. One time a beer for lunch, and fived a rock I had ridden 50 times clean. The time I put a kickstarter thru my leg, everyone blamed the beer. Sure I did have an open can, but not one drop ever touched my lips!:lol3 Sober and injured is even worse!
    So everyone have a good time, but save that beer for the bench racing!:freaky

    The NATC poster from a coupla years ago had Cody Webb doing a big up with a really grim look to his face. I tried to find a copy to post here. It wasn't a good photo choice, IMHO.
