Who's racing when?

I'm getting desperate here to get back out there myself, but I'd settle for coming to see you all ride.

April. I can't believe that I still have another month and a half until I can race. This sucks.

That is possibly the worst race poster I've ever seen.

It looks like they took a sub-par picture, and bukkake'd it with cut-out pictures from MS Paint.

I agree. JW will be properly spanked for that one.

This is the "real" link.

I can't stop laughing. Looks like those dudes are jumping over that guy on the ground. And blowing their nose on him. lolz0rs.

But anyway, that's my first real race of the year. Im already registered. I suppose I should get a license soon.

That poster is a pretty realistic description of the racing experience. Mine anyway, sans victory salutes.

Okay, try again. I don't want to use anyone elses' work, just images I took last year at that event.
I'll try to do a different one for each race and maybe by Superweek, they'll look decent.

Nice posters....I personally liked the first one, John! ha Keep the info coming. We're going to need a weekend racing thread for everyone to check in once this party gets started. So many races....so much fun...and pain!

I'm just looking forward to my index finger to be solid enough to ride outside. Next weekend, weather be damned.
