    This is something that's almost impossible to explain to someone who's never ridden offroad. On the plus side, riding = conditioning, so the more you do it, the better you are at it.

    Now, throw in a winter of fighting off sinus infections and exercise-induced asthma, and you've got my situation. I'm doing better than last year at least! :clap

    i just drove through there a week ago... Lots of piles of dirt, not a track yet :D looks like they're going to push a bunch of it around but havent quite, yet.

    Last year we could practice any Wednesday, and Sundays that werent races. Like, $30 a day. I would bring the PD and the 450. Navin taught me how to get a little bit of a double on the PD :lol Second gear and just enough! Dont back off in the middle! :lol3

    It was the cutest little double, ever. May have even been a rut.

    Ace is closed.. was a great place.
    There used to be open practices at either Ace, Diamondback or Walden almost every Wed, didn't get crowded till afternoon so we would go up and ride from 10-2or3 and be home early...those were the days
