Do you know why?
Was it because you were tired?
Trying to run too fast?
Mechanical issues: tires, etc.
When stuff like that happens I try to replay it all and figure out why so I can learn for next tmie.

well, it was a combination of several factors, first race weekend with the new front end, the bike handles a little differently and i was not quite used to it yet...
combined with a couple of bad choices/mental errors... basically my ambition over rode my ability...

Glad you're ok bud.

I really felt bad when you went down. I really felt I was a factor the first time you went down.
I didn't even realize you went down again. Hope you feel alright today and thanks for helping me get out there.

no Paul, you had nothing to do with my going down... you held your line and it was my choice to go around you there...I am still not sure exactly what happened, it happened fast and i had no warning i was going down...no feel, nothing... one second I was starting around you, next second i was down...I ran wide, must have... but that had nothing to do with you, it was all me. you handled yourself well, the one who screwed up was me.
