Thanks man, really appreciate the extra time you worked with me. It was so much fun, and I'm definitely addicted! Wish I had my gopro running on that lap you threw down the hand and threw your outside foot up in the air on turn 12! Sick bro! Love what your doin with the 250 too!

That is what Fastline is all about. It's the family of riders that we create that helps make Fastline so unique. It was great having you there, and we look forward to seeing you soon.

I believe I was DIRECTLY behind you (10-15 feet?) behind you with Tim beside me when you went down. He stopped to help you while I rode on.

Man, I thought I was going to run into you but avoiding you actually gave me a little more confidence. I was doing pretty good before lunch but then after lunch, my speed dropped tremendously. Exhaustion kicked in and my confidence weaned... Your accident pushed my confidence back to where I was...

Bad lean angle got you. As Tim told me all AM... move your off the seat. Glad you're okay!!

I got pics of the last few tumbles of that crash, a cloud of dust, and Tim's lightening-fast rendering of aid.

It is situations like that which separate Fastline from the rest. Within 2 min of you going down, you had 4 people there to help you out. 2 more min and the crash truck and more peeps to help. I haven't seen that kind of "comradery" anywhere else!

Nice laptime, gramps. It's a good thing I hid under my EZ-up while you were doing that.

Me too. But "dicing it up" for me might mean just trying to keep up with you for 30 seconds or so as you pass by.

I also thought the same thing. You were rolling as if angled perfectly away from my front tire. Then you stopped where I would have rode directly up your crotch. I only had a split second. My first instinct was to stop but then I vividly heard Tim say... never stop on the track. So... I gassed it coming out of that turn. I was struggling with my exit speeds all afternoon. Learning experience for both of us. I am sure I will be on your end soon enough.
