hey it's good to see that you noticed my skills!

A good reminder that I need to start stretching each day some as I feel it can make a nice improvement in my body positioning.
Get out on that mountain bike! It'll make quite a difference...

Where is it 90ft wide? I've been there at least 20 times and haven't seen a 90ft wide section...maybe 50ft wide in most places.

Honestly, Entrance into turn 1 is only 75 feet wide(which is hella wide)

and entrance to front strait is 85 feet wide.

Agreed and that's my point though, that's about it for the wide parts of TWS (Texas World Speedway)...the front and into T1 then tapering into T2. Nonetheless, it's still a very wide/forgiving track for errors and line corrections for the most part...although T1 can be very unforgiving.
