Man I really want too. Just not sure if I can get away for two days of riding yet. I know the class will benefit me a LOT so I can't miss that. I'll probably have a better idea by the weekend.

Here's a pretty sweet vid of the last GP.

Alright, unless I'm just totally beat up from Saturday, I'll be there for the race Sunday as well.

This is my first GP. How long are the motos? 30min? Didn't see it mentioned on FVOR's site.

That's quite a jump in production quality on that vid. I was expecting the usual Blair Witch stuff - instead I get Spielberg. Impressive!

Just because I don't care doesn't mean I don't understand.

Good hanging with you and the wife Chris! It felt really good to be back on the bike. I like that course alot. I had a good rythym going where everything just seems to flow perfectly. Good times!

^Likewise man. Good times for sure! Oh and you look good for 45 dude. Don't let anyone else tell you otherwise.

First time racing at FVOR let alone a GP. Some intense racing for sure and I loved every minute of it. Course was pretty fast and not really technical at all. Felt great ripping it through all of the trails and running through the gears on the 150. Not something you can safely do on an open ride day there with all of the blind corners and crisscrossing trails. Felt like I did fairly well or at least improved upon my results from recent hare scrambles. Should have stuck around to see the results but as usual will have to wait until they get posted online.

Looking forward to the fvor HS on the 20th!

^Results are up for the GP...finally.

Had a personal best at the HS yesterday. Nothing super impressive but managed to make the top 10 getting 10th out of 24 riders in the +30 C class. Believe I made 8 laps. First HS at FVOR. Course was much tighter and more technical than the GP I ran two weeks prior, which was expected. Rode a couple hills I had never tried before or even knew existed which was a nice surprise. Man these are so much fun!

Hoping to make the next rounds at Ptown 8/10 and FVOR 8/17.

Nice work. Congrats. My goal is to enter the Byron GP on Aug 23. Maybe we can get a group. I qualify for the 50+ group but, if there is a CLSB group that enters the 30+ group, I will sign up for that and we can ride together.

Take care and ride safe,
Brian

Yep. Wardy always puts together a good course. Nice job Chris on the HS finish! I should be able to make one of the hare scrambles in August.
