Dammit Joe you got me thinking...

I'll have to check my schedule and lose a few pounds to fit the second suit w my spine protector

Will there be another int/adv lightweight class?

Oh and Im going to talk to Phiber and a few others; see if we can get some photographers out there

You will learn more about riding on that day alone than what you learned on your own in the past several years of street riding...

I'll probably be there shaking down my new forks in novice. Look for the dirtiest trackturd in the group, it'll probably be me.
