I guess I'll be there.

I'm thinking last resort, if the camera is what's holding you back, just show up with pen and paper and you'll at least get style points, right?

Jamey, there are like 10 people coming up from Tampa/St. Pete! Somebody help him out!

I drove to the Jax race back in Nov, so my truck is staying in the garage this time. Robb and I are heading up, but he drives a go-kart...I mean a VW Golf. Not sure of who else is going from around here.

jacksonville tends to be kind of reclusive when it comes to doing things out of town, but hopefully I can get some to come.

I SO want to go! Man work is ridiculous. Seems like I can never do anything anymore .

This race sounds super fun man.

You guys be safe. And someone take lots of pictures so I can cry at home looking at them.

yea dosh, you tell that man what's up with a pedal wrench as your boom-stick! Pictures? bro, the whole race is based around pictures, you'll get plenty of scandalousness. as for me...i need mr. Miyagi to come heal my legs, they're ****ed from prior sporting engagements, so as of now if I race it'll be as support crew to everyone else

i let most everyone know in jacksonville about this gainesville race through FixJax (www.myspace.com/135849650), our basic jacksonville bike forum. join to get the info on the rides and races and all kinds of happenings in jacksonville. good luck with the race. todd from horroh let me know about it...thanks again. i'm trying to get off work to catch the race and the barncles show friday night.

No problem Matt. Glad to hear you're trying to spread the word and get the Jax kids out there. We'll talk more in Gainesville.

I think it's just Todd and I from Tampa, and Todd's only half a person so that means I'm the only one!
