Bunch of guys from WSB going. You guys aren't gonna have a dance battle when you see each other in the paddock, right?

although its the motogp weekend it is filling up rather well in all groups. it should be a perfect balanced day of just enough bikes to be fun with tons of extra space.

It was great to get back to Putnam - I can't believe how much fun that track is and how much I've missed riding there.

Thanks to Steph, got a couple of shots to memorialize my favorite session of the weekend. Went out to play with Tea Figuric for the session and Jeff Chen decided to come along too. Learned some stuff from both of them. I pushed hard enough that I ended the session with a saved highside out of dead bear - first time I've ever been that sideways on a bike. It was awesome .

Edit: I'd post the pics but it's just taking too long.
