few pics from the season opener @ USAIR

It was another epic race weekend @ Shawano. the weather was perfect both days and it was great to get back on the track with NWGP family!
Bug was doing really well and somehow improved his riding over the winter brake, i was pleasantly surprised. I mostly worked on the set up of the new bike and getting use to it. i am amazed how different the Husky is from my crf,
and will take some getting use to. our grid was full and this season is going to have some great battles! missed few of you fockers out there like (Tony, Steve,Colin,Bill) and hope to see you soon!

here is few pic

Where did you get the "Still" Shots from the track?

Weekend was perfect and the grip on that track with brand new slicks was just fucking amazing - Major take away from the weekend, I am out of shape and cannot be competitive for more than 5 Laps................and we race 12

This is just me not having any clue but is there a reason some riders are foot out in a turn and others are knee down? Does it just come down to the rider's personal style or experience (e.g. sportbikes, dirtbikes)

You wanna see my itinerary?

Yes and 99% of the knee down that you are seeing in this Vid is on a Mini - There was a guy on a 250 that was doing knee down and crashed 3 times
