Dragging your elbow?? Dragging body work. You guys are NUTS. 20 years ago, maybe. Too old, too fat, and too f****** chicken now. I'll be happy with the knee and not being the slowest guy on the track.

Buck, I was behind you going through Gut Check on Thursday. Scared the out of me just watching you hang off the bike - knee or no knee down. Freaking awesome.

I've seen Larry run a 42 out there CW, though in CW I havent heard of anybody running in the high-30's yet. I've also seen Buck out there, looking like he was cruising and probably putting in 46's. I think lap record CCW is around a 37, but the track is a few seconds slower in CW.

Anyway, congrats on draggin the knee for the first time, I still remember when I popped my cherry, it was pretty darn exciting. Just dont get too focused on getting that knee down like I have seen some people do, just because your draggin doesnt mean your going fast or that you have good body position

Great day at MSR with Buck and all the riders. Managed to drag both the right and left knees and squeaked out a 1:56.9. Good group of folks, had a great time.

There was a lot of motivation today with all the fast people on the track. It was a great time and all the pieces are coming together.

I like to ride the Bourget, but it's just a completely different experience. Like a hot stripper, great to look at, fun to ride but you just can't trust getting all the way into it.

Let's take them out!

That's funny no matter who you are!! Looked great out there yesterday Curt. Look forward to seeing you out there a whole lot more. Body position is getting more fluid as you get more seat time. And good to see you getting your head off the bike.

Larry said hot pink tape was worth two seconds a lap. That and to remind y'all that you were about to pass another freakin' unpredictable noob. Worked so well that it might be my permanent tape color.
