On a happier note I went to the Washougal National last weekend and what a freaking blast, I cant believe how fast those guys are its absolutely insane. I have ridden the track and usually am dying after one lap or so due to arm pump. But those guys hammer it for 30 minutes. It was interesting to the Cannondale and the ktm in line up, several yamaha 4 strokes, but since Jimmy Buttons out we are not that well represented. Of course Carmichael was ripping, but did notice David Pingree in 125 has some very interesting/aggressive lines, although he was back in the pack. Also Vulliemen has a diff riding style, he stays real low and sits back real far. I wont spoil the outcome for those waiting for the espn air time.
