Ty Howard lap around the Eagles Canyon track in Slidell, TX

This guy knows his stuff. I ride just as fast as he does, but then I have to wake up and deal with reality.

RideSmart is hosting several events there with Ty as the lead instructor of his race school.
They are going there on March 31 and again on May 5, so if you are interested, go to www.ridesmart.info.

Here is the video...

You were lookin' good last time I came out to MSRH to watch you guys ride. Remember, I have'nt been on the track since June of last year. Tables may have turned some since then.

Eagles Canyon looks pretty sweet. Will be even nicer when they add some curbing and gravel traps. Are they gonna add curbing and gravel traps? Man, we motorcycle guys are soo needy.

Curbing and traps are in place. The video is OLD. They need drainage and sod along the track to cut down on dust now. The dust made the track SLICK....very slick.
