Superbikers2

just got home from the race, turned out to be a great day. Practice was wet, but after that the track dried up. Theres some fast ass guys up there. Wish everyone else could have made it. I ended up getting a 2nd in the 35+ vet class and a 5th in the 450sm, only 6 guys ran the 450sm class. I had to run back to back classes1st vet then 450sm. Man i was tired. It was all good though. Anyone thinking about Norway on Sunday?

HDTony.... Damn glad to meet you!

Tony I knew you would do well in the vets. I'm surprised you didn't win. Congrats on the finishes. Now go for the Championship in 35+

Win, no way. there is some really fast guys out there, ill probobly never get close too, paul beuttner won the 35+vets and he was doing like 55 second lap times, the best i did was 59.01 seconds. Maybe the dirt section can help.

The turnout was alot less than predicted. I spoke to Glenn today and he was disappointed that a bunch of the pre-registered riders didn't show. It's probably due to the weather forecast being cold and rainy.

I would guess 35 riders total

A couple of 4th's but M. Harlow Jr. got either got faster over the winter or I got slower which doesn't make me happy...

Both races were kinda boring for me out in no man's land. In race 2, I had to pass one of my buddies R. Hall for 4th which took about a lap but otherwise I just watched the top 3 guys slowly pull away...
