From behind it looked more like you completely f'd up the turn and just decided to throw it under him.

Thanks everyone, btw.

Damnit Burrito, I finnally get into I to ride with ya and they bump you out.

I was standing by the fence at BHF with your brother last time telling him you were about to get bumped either that weekend or next, you had 4 control riders surrounding you for the entire session watching your every move. You were looking incredible out there. Stop bustin his chops Ken, if I had half the talent this guy does I would be happy. He earned it.




HDTony.... Damn glad to meet you!

Wikipedia - Adrenaline Junkie - An adrenaline junkie is somebody who feels as if they are addicted to adrenaline. Adrenaline junkies may enjoy competing in extreme sports like skydiving, surfing, motorcycle racing, or anything else that gets their heart rate up. This sort of addiction is brought on by enjoying the (adrenaline) "rush" gained from these activities.

My goal was to come out behind you at Putnam then stuff you into Turn 1, but Ron just ruined the whole surprise.

Hey guys, been in meetings all morning, sorry for hopping in here late.

CONGRATS to Erik and Dan!! Way to go guys! For those of you questioning their competency, Mr. Fedderson himself recommended the bump, and it was unsolicited. Heck, when Ron and I went to bump them, they both said they'd rather stay in "I".

Alas, they both earned this bump, and have been thoroughly evaluated by multiple CRs, tested and passed on inside and outside. They are ready for "A" without a doubt.

Good luck out there! Ride Fast, Ride Safe!

And for the record, that was Erik's second bump at Heartland. That is a GREAT track to develop skills on, you guys that haven't been there should check it out.

===========
