"I didnt know squids could fly "

I think I'm gonna change my class next HS race and aim to take out some youngin' on a GasGas 😢 :cry:

Thanks Phil, you missed the one of me going around a berm.

I don't post pic's cause I'm too modest 😢 :cry:

And you missed being there and seeing me just fall over on loamy right turns cause my R elbow just gave way, from being whacked bad, and boom I went down, painful to me but had to be a hilarious site for the spectators.

Yeh from the write up on ftr's forum it sounded like great fun. remind me to kick my kid. 😢

See West, that's how your thinking is wrong (you youngin's don't understand the principle of "thinking outside the box"). I'll just lurk in the woods and then Boom, pop out right on top of you 😢 :cry:.

well if I can keep my kid from giving away his crash medicine (and getting caught for it, remind me to kick him again) I plan to ride all I can with FTR. Don has already said he's addicted to the racing 😢

What hook up are you trying to do with FTR?

By the way, I am trying to set it up so I can swing over to croom with you guys next weekend, let me show you guys the FTR training trail there. It made the difference in wanting to ride there for me. 😢

HS's rock man. They are woods riding on steroids.

Riding them and practicing for them is the only time I have ever pushed myself to the limit. The rest have been sunday cruises comparatively.

hundreds of people are at the races, and for a race that cant be seen other than the timing gate thats amazing.

aint no woosies to it man. saturday is the beginners race. sunday is the regular races. Beginners class is fine, but it doesnt buy you a thing, except a shorter trail.

I'll show you the FTR training trail at croom. It will provide all you need to prep with. With out a doubt. 😢

riding with friends is racing, just not as long of a duration. Thats the only difference.

Barring injuries/bike breakage, I will be riding every FTR MX and HS event. All my class events are on Sundays. Go the the FTR site (Floridatrailriders.org) and check things out. I put myself in the +45 class as a challenge (plus I'm 46 now) rather than in the beginner class (I didn't think I was a beginner). Maybe you guys should attend an event and see the action!!!

Bruce, Jeff lets coordinate to just go and watch one of the FTR Harescrambles, that way we can see somewhat to expect prior to jumping in. What do ya'll think?

well since we lost the rest of the thread, I'll add this.

If you are still undecided about what all is needed or what to expect, then go saturday to check things out. You will be able to join and sign up for sundays races then so you wont be stressing over it first thing sunday morning. (early signup for the Sunday races, which will be from 3:30pm - 5:30pm on Saturdays)

That should let you get a feel for things and buy your numbers and backgrounds from the vendor too.

In case you didnt get it before here's the sign-up sheet for this weekend.
