After the first flip your bike was catapoulted atleast 15 ft in the air. It then flipped about 6-7:more times. It looked really bad. I had my gopro in tbe tail facing me and I caught in im the right angle. send me you email and Ill get the video to you. Heal up bro.
Got it on video? That can't look good.

I made a couple of trips to the viewing platform to watch level 2. That level is a nessesary evil, but hard to watch (scary things happening) lol. I felt like the track came in well after lunch but windy. Hope everybody that had get-offs is ok.

that sucks! Glad you are feeling better, bruising should show up in a day or two. It took nearly 4 days for it to completely show up for me, and when it did, it was bad!

It was so windy yesterday, my tires were nice and sticky, but I could never push myself past 50- 60%. Especially the sweeper, I was scared shitless going through there, didn't think I would be. BUT I WAS!

Nobody else will go down on "Yorke's Seam", heard it will be incorporated in ARC class study book.

i with you my man.

Honesstly, I wish there was a strict grid limit of say 15 bikes. More expensive for sure but instructors could regulate and coach more effectively mitigating the inevitable racing. Too much to ask for in this economy but it would be nice.

Its not necessary. Yes it was a full grid yesterday but I still had fun. There was some traffic but I hot pitted a couple times to get away from it. Is all up to the individual. Yesterday was completely my fault. Instead of trying to pass quikgixx I should've just backed off and put some distance between us so I could push it hard. Our speed and skill was close matching to where a little distance would've worked. Plenty of track out there. People need some accountability for themselves instead of trying to blame a full grid. We know not to bunch up, keep a safe distance, and pass safely. just happens sometimes though. In this case it was rider error and impatience. As long as every one is smart and cautious the day should've went off without a hitch.
