post 'em if you got 'em. i had an absolute blast heckling those folks that were beating me :thumb: "if you can't win, at least make the other guy feel bad for beating you" :D

my pics of the dj contest are vid captures so they're not the best quality. i'll make a short vid of all of the dj stuff that i have and post a link soon.

Hobby is open year round - it's just not maintained year round so in between races it gets somewhat run down...

There is "talk/interest" in perhaps getting a "spring" race in order...Motomike mentioned it in passing (nothing serious or for sure at this point) but Moto knows a lot of people and there are some locals who I think would share in logistics etc, IF someone wanted to get a race going?...

yup, mike c and i were talking about just that. going to see if we can get official sponsorship backing for a "fall fun race" type of thingy. pretty much just an organized reason to hang out and ride.

yo manimal,

...I'm willing to help get something organized - no experience in how to, but more than happy to try and help out...just keep me posted...

danW

oh yea, really enjoyed the heckling yesterday - while trailing "Zach the Troll" in the semi's, I was shouting the same stuff ...well at least in my head :rolleyes:

A charity race perhaps...I think one of the things that could really help to keep racing alive would be more chill, informal races and contests like Hobby

I have edited my 4:45 minute video, and I am in the process of uploading it to snowpics.net. It is taking awhile. :angry:

Well, screw that. My dad shut down his computer that I edited it on, and now it wont upload. :mumble: Tomarrow folks, tomarrow.

They save the lives of cyclists all across the world, that is, the ones that are smart enough to wear one to begin with.

Buck, you were on the sidelines? I figured you'd be trying some new trick out there.
