This one's got me limping this week. Full gate, ended up with a DNF in moto one, swapped out my bars and got to the line right before the second gate drop and pulled a VERY close 2nd place in the second moto.

Damn, that was a nasty swap. Any idea what caused it or just one of those crashes?

^^^^^ Pretty much what happened, I've swapped out over that crest 12 laps straight in practice and not have a single problem, but if you look at it, the part that I crashed in was still very soft and mucky because it'd been in the shade all morning. And the front end didn't feel like I should get away with it that time...

That race was just a local exhibition race that happened to have a good turn out and a couple decent riders show up. The closest series that actually has some good racing is the AMP/GFI series up north, which is what I like to chase. I'm currently 250 novice, and hoping to get to intermediate.

That was my first week back since April, and my 7th hour on that bike. The second moto was really good, I'll try and get some footage up soon. It's just a lot longer cause I actually stayed off the ground.

Damn that was a pretty hard wreck-glad you're ok. And second in the next race is awesome! Just out of curiosity, where did you have your camera mounted? Under the visor of the helmet?

Crash was not that bad. But your riding was... really impressive.

How do I get into it?

With broken bones, concussions, and banged up knees and elbow. Pretty much summed up my stint riding dirt track.
