first session? lol.

If your arms hurt, you ride it wrong. Your legs should be the ones that sore.

Definitely warm out there. I took a few photos with the pocket camera of the inter group before lunch that I'll post a link to after they are uploaded. I left as the 'backing it in' demo was going on during lunch. Too hot for standing around spectating.

I was there for the parade lap, it was fun. I've been looking forward to seeing the whole track; pretty nice. I will say however, the parade lap was the biggest tease ever, I didn't want to stop.
