Somehow I don't think that will be the case though....

MJH2 is coming with me. It's the double this weekend. Cheeselandia on Saturday. Lansing on Sunday.

It's either this or trainer riding.....

A rarity: someone was out shooting the 10am races and there were a few photos taken of me. If you'll allow me to toot my own horn for a moment:

Well I've finally got a photo to contribute. The holeshot was given to the first person over the dirt pile (no holeshot if you went around it). We were the first race of the day. I hit it far too fast, but hey hindsight is 20/20. For my troubles I got $10 and a light lol. The race after us conveniently circumnavigated the pile .

I believe that fits perfectly into the 'only in Portland' bin.

The wheel is by and large, more toast than a toasted wheel can be. Think 5 inches off to either side, new rim on the way .

Nope. Seems like a old hippie only kind of category - perfect for the Pacific NW.

...besides...we had to make room in the schedule after we added the recumbent category.

Well, some of us have been pushing for a specific "old hippie" category, but unicycle and clydesdale are the best we've been able to do.
