You were cruising out there! That track was tight, I had my fair share of spills. I've got all sorts of bumps and bruises, but had a great time. Looped it out at the top of the first hill climb once. First time doing that! Didn't feel great on the tailbone

Nice meeting you as well! Broken brake lever is a bummer, but a least you're okay! A lot easier to fix a break lever than a bone..lol. You gonna run that tag team race at Spoaks in 2 weeks?

True that. I'm sure there is a nice photo of me superman'ing over the ground somewhere..

Not doing the tag team this time, running the Houston 12K of Christmas event. I am looking forward to the TORCS 2018 series, though.

FOR SURE! This track looks to be a lot of fun from the vids I've seen on youtube. I missed this track last season, but I'm excited to race it this weekend.

I haven't ridden Zars yet, but it's next to Cycle Ranch.. I wouldn't mind making a TORCS/Moto weekend ride out of that trip and hit both places. I think Zars is scheduled for the end of March.

Have her come, the more the merrier.

I don't "race", I just enjoy the ride. I'm at an age now where the "race" aspect (and potential down time) isn't worth the risk.

If there were more than 2 in Womens A she'd race that but there isn't so she chooses to ride in a larger class.
