Anyone else doing both races this weekend at fvor? I'll be camped out Saturday night and racing both days.

Couldn't make the GP but was there yesterday. Course was a lot of fun but man was it dusty. Made it difficult to see up some of the hills and see any riders down blocking the path. Got unlucky with a couple of those scenarios including the first hill carnage. Maybe I'll get a video of that up soon.

Overall I felt like I was riding pretty well though and still had fun. Looking forward to the Moose run, leaf river and any other races I can squeeze end before the end of the year. Man this season has gone fast.

Weather was near perfect both days. Saturday night was cold as fawk. The dust was pretty bad both days. Since when is being too dry an issue at fox valley??? Usually I'm complaining about the mud. I will say that the up hills were almost as slick as mud. A lot of us rookies were having issues. Overall I rode well and finished in 8th place. I was only one or two falls away from 5th or 6th. It was that close.

Moose run next weekend should be a good one. Should stay dry enough.
