Talking My kids first race

Well after recovering from a terrible crash at Putnam in May the kid is ready to enter his first race this weekend at BHF on Sunday. I've tried to get him to sign up for our beloved web site but no go. July 15th is his 23rd birthday and being his dad and all, I pleading for some CLSB support just to cheer him on to victory. Yeah, I'm predjudice, but he can kick some butt out there. I've seen the 14 he won't talk about and the 15 he admits to all on a stock bike without the suspension or other tricks.
If you like bike racing, and you're inclined to find some entertainment come on out this weekend and cheer all the CLSB'rs that are busting their butts to win.
Kimmy we watched you, Steve G2G, Dano the man, etc only cause I'm old and forgetfull. Come one, come all share the experience of the birth of a new racer.
Oh well, I'll be there and will need someone to hold me up anyway.

He doesn't like the computer at all. If I didn't do it for him he most likely would forget to sign up for all the NESBA days.
He'd rather to be active than stationary I quess.
