    I missed the winter scramble last weekend cuz I was too cheap to buy studded tires. Here's some videos of the race for those of you who haven't seen them already...

    Actually there is enough snow to run rally studs. I ran car studs today for mileaging but some wished they had run their rally studs. Either will be tortured to some degree. There are some long ice flows that the car studs where ok on, but with the rally's I would have honked a bit more on...

    How does everyone get out to the check points in the woods? Walk? I don't see any bikes by them in the videos

    I'm starting to feel a little better today but its KILLING me to be on the couch instead of outside on the beautiful winter day. Everyone at the Snow Run is in for a great time. I hope you guys tell me precisely how much I really missed it and post some pictures.

    Wow all three riders kicking ass. Track went to hell in the afternoon. Made me tired just watching him pulling the bike out of the ruts in the afternoon race.

    I went ice fishing once. Didn't catch anything. Took all day to get a hole big enough for my boat, then it was time to go home.
