Here are the 2 pictures I got from Mid Ohio this past year on August 7
I took the school as my first (and only so far) track day and I don't regret the decision at all

Here are two of me at Cadwell (UK) and these are after not being on a bike for 5 years. I am now much more up to speed and will be doing level 1 this year. Hopefully I will look better!

Yes I would agree under most circumstances. I however knew I would be racing the next day and the forcast was for more of the same. I figured I might as well try and get used to it for the Sat. race. It was my last race to graduate out of Novice. We did have more of the same for the practices but by the time the race came around it was just a monsoon of a rain instead of the white stuff. I would have to say I really think it was because of the skills and the aproach to riding I learned with the Superbike School that allowed me to keep her on two wheels. The skills I learned on the slide bike have saved my bacon on way more than a couple of occasions. I didn't fare as well as I would have liked in the wet race (took 3rd). Especially after leading the entire race up till the last corner. I learned there is another aspect of my game I need to put some effort into. "Racecraft" as I have heard it called before. I will have a better plan for that aspect next time out for sure.

The school offers the CodeRACE school where racecraft is experienced too :)

Sanfret;

That's a really impressive young rider you're managing there. I seem to remember his dad was a fairly talented rider himself. I rode with him at CodeRACE back in 2004 and if memory serves, he did the double that weekend winning both races...I wonder what happened to that guy... ; )

Sanfret gets the gold sticky star! Pacific Raceway in Kent, WA. I will be out there again this weekend hopefully in a little bit warmer conditions. Unfortunately it's looking like the first dry stint will have to wait a few more weekends as it looks like we will be playing in the rain.... again! here is another snow day pic. Might be a bit small but it was definatley snowing. If you click on the pic you might be able to see the snow.

I'll stick with my theme of being a bit of a slacker, and riding in the rain/cold only when I absolutely have to (like a school).

I was at Pacific last Wed 4/9 for the 2-Fast performance school. It started out dicy with temps in the low 30s, dense fog and very slick track. the first session at 9am was a slow parade but by 10am the sun was out and the rest of the day was glorious and warm (for up here). It was great to be able to apply the new skills from the camp I attended in March on my bike in my gear on our home track. One thing though, I couldn't find those yellow X's on the track anywhere ;-) Photos have not been posted yet by Studio819, once they are I'll put some links in here. I'm already signed up to go back May 8th, can't wait!
