Lol. It was cloudy yesterday with a few sprinkles then around 1:00 the sky cleared and the sun was shining through. Good day for racing.

It was not too bad at all! The worst downpour was sat during the AMA Supersport race, but it was a good race none the less!!!! (I heard early Friday sucked though)

I went on Sunday, first MotoGP I've been to. I should have left the poncho at home and brought some sunscreen. Was considering riding up, but I figured it was going to be a downpour the whole time

No kidding.. we had planned on cancelling our trip this weekend, thinking the races would be called off due to 90% chance of rain both days. Friday morning, the weather "magically" changed and we were able to ride all weekend at both Swan MX and Badlands MX with not even a DROP of rain..

Glad many you all got to attend MotoGp.. I bet it was awesome!

I went regardless of the weather... I assumed I might get wet while there and was willing to deal with it. Turned out to not be as much of a factor as I thought it would! I actually enjoyed watching the supersport class run in the rain. Made it more exciting!
