    RIP Rich

    Hi Jeff. That's awesome that you are doing the lift in honor of Rich, I know he would appreciate it. You can get the stickers from Tony, he did a great job on them. I will send him a text and let him know that you are wanting some.

    RIP Rich

    I know you were there Tony and I was glad that you came and we got a chance to meet you. I hope you and Bryan and many of Riches' other friends still come by to see us at the races and maybe other places. It won't be the same without Rich but it would still be great to see and talk to you guys. My# is 3-- 594-8172

    RIP Rich

    I'm also devastated and this is still so surreal to me. I just can't believe this happened to my good friend. Rich and I met about 5 years ago at a ride meet at Rampart, it was arranged right here on TT. Rich was also the one who took me to Moab for my first time. I talked him and Shane into doing their first enduro, which turned out to be the hardest one possible for an "introduction" into the sport. It was "Hardrock" down near Canon City. I watched the race from Carnage Canyon, at the first huge bottle neck here comes Rich, he puts his WR 450 on the stand and starts helping all his competitors up the rocks. After he helped 10 or so racers up the rocks, I just had to tell him, "Rich, I know your such a nice and helpful guy, but this is a race and you need to get your bike and get going". He did and after he was done with his race he helped my son change a flat tire and even supplied the tube he needed to finish his race. That's the kind of guy he was and not just helping others in riding situations, he was always there to lend me a hand with the motorhome or most recently my hot water heater. Even though Hardrock was brutal for almost all riders, it was his first enduro and I thought he may never want to do another one. I was so wrong, he was a fierce competitor and loved the challenge, he went through the C class in a few races, trophied, and did great in the B class. I will miss my friend and riding Buddy, the dinners together, drinking some beer, and our great riding adventures. Going to the races will not be the same without having his pickup and camper parked next to us and him coming to the motorhome for our traditional spaghetti dinner, Sat. night before the race. And of course the laughs and war stories after the race. Vicki, Shane,Karly and Libby, if there is anything that we can do to make this very difficult time any easier at all, please call any of us, anytime. I already miss ya Rich, thanks for all the great times and memories we shared, and thanks again for helping me through Spruce Gulch, I might still be down there if it weren't for you. Even if we went a month without getting together, I always looked for any posts you made on TT to see what you've been up to. RIP Rich, me,Jan and Mike feel very lucky to have had you as a friend; I just can't believe you left us so soon. Max

    Denver endurocross

    I agree, it's a great show and mostly more entertaining races than SX. I hope Denver can keep this one.

    VDR hare scramble 2010

    You're thinking of Honda, which has no confidence in their products and comes with no warranty. You can race your Yamaha 30 days in a row and it will be under warranty.

    Organize 717 Race?

    They've had National Enduros down there before. Great fun and close event. You'll get a great turnout for a race, but you'll earn it. Good luck with getting the permits and every thing organized.
  11. Corey is a great guy. We hope for a fast and complete recovery for him.
