You had a unanimous vote from all the cornerworkers - we just had trouble identifying the bike because apparently there were two 34s - and nobody could name the color of your bike! We finally got to calling it "the weird metallic green one".

You must have let the title go to your head - in the last session or two you looked like you were showing off - getting even smoother than you'd been all day.

Glad (almost) everyone walked away. A few hobbled. Apparently I had the most boring corner of the whole track - not a single incident @ T7. I had a great view of a pretty fast corner, though. Learned what lines worked better than others and should be less apprehensive about getting out there myself in a few weeks.

seemed like there was at least one wreck every session, no matter the skill lvl. but then again, it was pretty packed. i'm glad everyone that wrecked, walked away from it.

The first few runs in the morning had red flags over and over. After lunch, everyone seemed to get smoother and more relaxed - or maybe they were just hungry all morning and couldn't concentrate?

The one wreck that was transported was discharged around 7pm. Broken ankle, shattered finger, dislocated thumb, and some friction burns and bruises. Although he was able to get up and walk to the ambulance, they still insisted on strapping him down for the ride over. We got him and his bike home safely a little while ago, and he'll be hurting in the morning.

the thing i can't believe is, people were wrecking during 'round robin'...which is takin it slow, gettin a feel for the track. i was amazed when the flags started comin up on the first run.

I was working Turn 4. Efmang, dude you were waaay smooth and very fast through there. I was impressed!

I also had a quite a few crashes included the above dude who clipped the instructor.

I took a few pics (didn't get any of the crashes, cuz I was waving flags, doh!) I'll post a link in a few....

HAHAHAHAA... Well @least those people wrecked while they were getting to know the track and going slow verses a more serious wreck.
