I ran into Jake in the bathroom. I didn't think it would be a good idea to start a conversation while our dicks were hangin out.

I vow not to give up my winter time six pack for summer time 12 packs.

Corey West was awesome to watch. The sound of that rear tire sliding was crazy!
From what I heard #18 was a 14 yo. I'm not sure what his name is, but he was moving.

I didnt get a chance to ask why ACC for testing. Either there were no other tracks available for testing this weekend or MJ knows someone at ACC.

Both teams are based out of Wisconsin. My guess is because it's close by and they have easier access to ride there than any other track. I was surprised to see them too, it was pretty cool.

Here is an article about that kid #18. Damn he's younger than I thought.
