I think you mean 22-23.

I intend on heading to Oakford for the d17 hs. It's probably the best piece of ground they run on.

My original plan was to ride at Byron or race at Oakford this weekend but that was before the race at FVOR this past Sunday. Hit the deck more times than I can remember. It was a weird race for sure.

Going to take a break this weekend to heal up and get the bike sorted. Hoping to be good to go for the HS at Byron next weekend (8/30). Might even take that Fri (8/28) off to ride FVOR. I'll post up if I do.

I'm thinking of riding the GP at Byron on the 29th.

Tnat sent me an email asking about Byron on Sunday. Depending on the weather, that looks to be the play.

Had a great time riding with Brian @ Byron. The track was primo and the weather really good also. It's been a long while since I popped some jumps. Enduro and HS don't really have much of those. Had a decent day @ Road America helping out with Midwest Track days. CCS race next weekend.

Life is pretty damn good now. As long as I can keep a very good job @ UOP which will be tough with declining fluctuating oil prices and a high USD.

Sorry, was hoping to make it out yesterday but ultimately decided I could use a little more time to heal up. Sprained my right wrist last week and it's not quite 100% yet. Looks like you guys had a beautiful day for some moto though.

Thinking I might take Fri off and ride FVOR just to get some seat time in before the HS Sunday. Not sure if I'll do the GP or not.

The Byron GP is no longer on their web calendar. It looks to be cancelled. I'm not sure. They show the park as closed this coming Saturday.

I just saw a post on their FB page confirming the GP is cancelled.

The Byron hare scramble is just like the GP though using most of the MX track. Difference being that it's 70 min longer and uses a "little" more woods. You should do it!
