    Me trailing @ZLTFUL along some river . . . somewhere . . . in Iowa. {Clearly I should have been a tour guide or cartographer or something.}

    Just a practice day.
    They will start holding races next year.

    That one legged guy was probably Quintin Davis, He is a great rider.

    Yesterday there was a paralyzed rider on the track, he has a cage around his bike and his legs strapped on.

    Definitely a fun little shake down run. After figuring out why I had no dash...or signals...or brake lights...or horn...lol.

    Give me a heads up if you go there again. The practice days are a much better deal. Race days you get 2 10 minute motos and a ten minute practice. Not much riding for hanging around all day.

    2nd place! Nice riding...I think these sprint enduros are going to be a hit. Really enjoyed the one I rode. Never cared for the timekeeping stuff. I will try and make Indianola this weekend if I can get healthy. Damn respiratory stuff is killin me.

    Well I'm old and just the opposite. I liked the timekeeping aspect and the more traditional format. Sprint format is more like racing a HS, except no mass start and time for naps in between test sections...so I guess it IS designed for old people who forget how to tell time, lol.

    Not moto, but racing the UCI World Cup cyclocross that's in Iowa City this weekend and Waterloo, WI next weekend. Good cross training and how often does the best in the World come to Iowa?

    Well that was hard, but I've done it before, so I knew what I was getting into. 10th place out of 16 in the 60-64 age group. Field was loaded, including the current National champion and guys from CA, ID, TX, MS and the best riders in the Midwest. Wasn't even close to the lead group, but at least I didn't get lapped. lol
