Yep, that's him.
He did 3 days on the tire, so it was about time.

Dean let me know, see you tomorrow.

he was still hauling out there, kinda reminded me of Gabe running all day on a tire that had the cords showing down the center of the tire.

Is that a youngster on a 250 in the last picture, or is it an optical illusion?

Here's some video footage.

Uploaded like , but it shows the track at least. Not to mention some not so great riding.

10 minute video by the way and without a whole lot of excitement.

Not sure about that. It was similar to Dirk's son's mini and his was an 85cc I think, not sure about that white one.

Another video that's a bit shorter and with a slower pace after being worn out from riding over the course of the day. Started making stupid mistakes (not all shown here) and got a little slap on the hand at the end of this clip.

Thanks for the video. It looks surprisingly narrow with a wide variety of track surfaces with all the patches. Does the level of grip vary across the different colored patches?

Most of it felt solid to me other than when I almost had the highside. Alonzo, or any of the other guys who push much harder at the track I am sure can give you a better answer though.

i think the for the most part the level of traction is pretty even (for the most part) i really enjoyed riding there of course i was riding the 65 but still had a great time. my 65 sure does run great there.
