Gabe, Mark and Derek had a great race! LSTD Endurance win!

1st in class, 2nd OVERALL in the CMRA endurance race today

There was some attrition, some bad luck by some of the other teams, but in the end, the boys were only 1 lap down on 1st overall, and they were 4 laps up on 3rd overall!

Congrats boys! Excellent result!

Thanks guys. We surely had better luck than some others. But we had a decent race and were able to bring it back in one piece.

We are really lucky.
It was a team effort and we gotta thank Beth and THE MACMAN for working he pits for us.
It was way too much fun.

Tom, thanks for everything you do too.
You've been doing great at keeping everyone organized, and on top of that, you're riding has been inspiring.

we'll enjoy it for a little bit.....today.
tomorrow we will be thinking about hallet.
there's alot of season left and we know how things can change.
plus, it's funner to think about green flags than checkered flags.
thanks motohouston!!!!!!!!!!

Marks right, we have tons of support and a great team. We couldnt do it without the help. Also congrats to Texas Track Days for completing their first endurance race. Here is a pic that Pam got us before the race....its sweet.

Great looking bike. Looking at the shock reservoir mount and the adjustment on the end, I'm curious. Do you guys tweak the suspension during the race, between racers?

Curt, we try not too mess with the suspension once its set. We let Jimmy handle that. BUT since this is the first time we raced it we hadnt had Jimmy squish on it and the bike wosnt working as well as it could. We turned a few but didnt find the results we were looking for.

as far as the bracket goes, it goes along with our team philosophy that no journey can begin without parts from the dumpsters. but we'll have that changed...it's temporary.
as far as suspension goes, Jim Cambora at Raceworx does all of our setup and changes.
yesterday, while the bike was still hot after the race, he was there adjusting and making small changes to our chassis.
and hey, come out to the track..LSTD will be at ECR in a few weeks.
