    I'm out. Brother in law is coming up from Tennessee and we're going to the OSU game.

    Possibly. Last I heard is that the mining company put the project on hold. This time last year, the timeframe was for it to already be closed and stripping started by now.

    Muddobbers was excellent. Rode OK, but once again a slow start hurt me. I finished 13th out of 19 in 40+A with 150 minutes and 14 seconds of race time. 8th place was 145 minutes and 48 seconds. 5 minutes isn't a huge amount, especially when you consider the shortest section was 6 miles. I blew the left fork seal early on and it got some oil on the rotor and pads. Not enough to lose the breaks all the way, but enough to need a little extra pressure to get it slowed down. Then later in the day the fork emptied out, I got the rotor and pads hot enough to burn off the oil and they worked good for the last 2 tests. I've got a call in to Corey at Protune, hopefully I can get them dropped off this week and get a re-valve while he's in there freshening it up.

    There were 5 women in total, Becca in 250A, then the 3 in the Woman's class. Liz who won the class is part of the the family that runs Motohio the Ducati/Triumph/BMW dealership in east Columbus. She grew up around dirtbikes and was an instructor for BMW's Woman's Adventure class for a few years before moving home to work at the dealership. 2nd place was Rae who is in my club. She just started riding dirtbikes 2 years ago, but is a beast on a mountain bike. I've been riding with her husband since the early days of ZTR. 3rd was Mallory, who is Joe Geyer's girlfriend. She was the ACES scorer last year, but decided she was tired of watching Joe have all the fun. I won't comment on the 5th lol

    Results are up, I was 40th O/A with a 67:02, Kenny was 43rd O/A with a 67:38. Becca Sheets was 14th O/A with a 61:53. We got beat by a girl! LOL Seriously though, these top women really have stepped up their game. 11 years ago, I beat the top women who were going to the ISDE at the 2 Day Qualifier and I'm faster now than I was then. Oh yeah, she's a cutie! If I were younger, richer, better looking guy...

    Yeah, I saw that. Probably an ADV bike the way the Suzuki V-Strom is an ADV bike. It will have an all new liquid cooled 60* V-twin, so might not weigh 800 pounds lol

    Yup. Not sure how it happened, but my guess is he didn't realize Greg and I missed a turn in the creek before the road and were behind him and he was hauling the mail trying to catch up to us, not knowing we had 15+ minutes to kill at the re-start just up the road.

    As for my race, I thought I rode pretty well, but fought arm pump all day. Kinda surprising since I didn't have 1 issue at Athens 2 weeks ago. Wound up 3rd in 40+A, 2 minutes off of 1st and 2nd. Can't think of much different I can do short of buying a brand new 350XC and spending a grand getting the suspension dialed in lol. I was really surprised Kenny got 3rd in his class. He was right on me all day, even beat me in 2 tests when I made a mistake at the end for him to sneak by. I thought for sure I drug him along to a class win lol

    Keep Greg H's brother Rob in your thoughts and prayers. He'll be OK in the long run, but its gonna be a tough journey with some new hardware in him. Probably never ride a dirtbike again

    B-stone X30s since it's dry. Not sure what I'll run next.

    I ran one all spring and I really liked it on anything other than hard pack. If you are on hardpack, those soft knobs are gonna squirm.

    Gravel or Bumpy Turn Entry Offroad

    With deep gravel it should be similar. If it's bumpy, then you just have to slow down a bit, square it up and lay down the power once the bike is more vertical and pointed where you want to go.

    I haven't ridden one of the 690/701 bikes from Austria, but I'm thinking what you need to do is channel your inner flat tracker. Lots of weight on the outside peg pushing the bike down, nuts up on the gas tank, and smooth on the throttle and flat track your way around the turns you're describing.

    So here's my race report. Ouch lol Nah, it wasn't that bad. The course was pretty good, especially by AMC standards. Fairly open and fast, yet not too sketchy. It was Greg H, Brad C, myself, and Bob Bates (new guy in my club) on our row and we were all pretty evenly matched in speed. After the first 3 races where I felt like I was too conservative, I told myself I need to push harder at the start. So I went down twice and got hung up on an off camber log in the first test, costing me more time than if I had just rode smooth lol 2nd test I pushed again and wrecked twice again! Both of those wrecks hurt. They had a long grass track section and twice coming out of a sweeper I lost the rear and had fairly high speed low sides and with as dry as it's been, the ground was hard like concrete. Knees, hips, and elbows on both sides are pretty bruised up and sore today. After that I kept it on 2 wheels except for the last section. 1 thing that was really frustrating is that I effed up Waldo hill twice yesterday. Been racing there since '06 and have always cleaned it before. That was in a section with an Emergency check on the back side. Dropped at least 2 extra minutes in that section. The last test I was really hauling and we had a down hill quad trail that was one of the few wet spots due to a spring, got to the bottom and low sided in the mud and coated my hands in slop. I missed the flip by 10 seconds on the back side, so there was another point. I finished 4th with a 23. 3rd dropped a 23 with less Emergency points and 2nd was a 20. A bit frustrated that I still got a crappy result due to my mistakes, but it's better than getting a crappy result because I rode like a pussy!
