F7 Endurance team 2013 TMGP

Ok, I am starting to toy with the idea of forming an Novice F7 endurance team for the 2013 TMGP season. If I do it, I will need some riders.
I have had several guys say they would like to ride the endurance races at the Katy track, but that is not a team. Half the races will be in Denton and i want a team that will be consistant. I will need riders than can commit to going to all the races, the ones in Denton as well as the local races.
The bike I am thinking of using is a 2005 crf 100. I have put the 120 kit and 26 MM carb on it. It has excell 17" front and sun 17" rear and has dunlop GP 125 slicks on it.
It has a kx85 front end with disc brakes on it and is currently set for a 225lb rider. I ran F7 sprints on it this year making the mods slowly over the year. It is a comfortable ride. I did not really impress folks on it, but i did not get embarrassed either.
I would like to have a 3 man team, 4 would not be bad in case something came up on a race weekend and one of us had to miss.
If you are interested post up or send me a PM. If the interest is there, we can all get together and work out the details, splitting of expenses and travel stay arrangements for the denton trips.
When i go to Denton I stay for both days, endurance and sprints.
my wife says to warn any potential team mates that some folks would not want to team with me, as I give a lot, but expect a lot too... she should know exactly what kind of a team member I am

I would have to see the schedule and talk to some people but I might be interested. I even have a place to stay in Denton pretty consistently.

I do not expect a schedule to firmed up until mid feb.
TMGP tries to work their schedule around not only the kart club races but CMRA as well, so the other schedules need to be firmed up first.

I'd be in for this. A couple years ago I rode a full season with Tim and Kris to win the F5 mini endurance 1st place. I like the XR platform!!

that would be cool, but while there will not be any TMGP events to conflict with cmra events, there will likely be some that conflict with fastline trackdays....will that be a problem for you?
we will also need to check with denny to see if you still can run novice class or not... did you get moved up to expert during your previous seasons?

don't sweat the small stuff Kib, the key word there is rider... it is not talking about a cone owning guy who talks about riding.
maybe you could get a vest for your wife, i hear SHE rides.

ok, spoken like a true mini rider.
as often as the little bike threw me this year, i know it hates me.
My TMGP season consisted of no wins, 8 crashes and 3 broken ribs. It was a of a lot of fun.
