lol wackiness..... slip slidin' away.
I really think I'd rather have an 'Apple Juice' or three and a puff and watch the races this week-end, than actually do it. Maybe next time...lol

oh yeah.. no way my non-studded tires are going anywhere near the race. But as I said before, I'd definitely be up for spectating and maybe hooking up for a couple soda-pops before and/or after.

The studded class has become very competitive over the last few years. That being said the rubber class race is always the most entertaining.....and no shortage of willing participants usually. Also Derek has a habit of giving the best prizes to rubber class winners.

Is there a distinction between store studded and the crazy tires the boys and girls are making? I think a rubber class riders SHOULD get the better prizes.

Yes. The store bought ones lose.....the homemade ones win.

^^^LOL^^^ hmmm 100 little wimpy studs vs. 700-1000 screws....
Now Saturday are we watching an indoor or outdoor race? The wind chill is supposed to be horrific. I have no problem riding in the **** but sitting will require another layer or two, plus the wobbly pops.

Get lots of pics, whomever goes. I am interested in some close-ups of the homemade tires, they sound wild.

I was racing him when it happened. All I remember is going down the straight.....into the corner....and I hear a big "THUMP". No more Albert. His leg was pretty nasty. But he's tough..cough, cough.

Yeah i saw that, they just reused the picture from the dufferin park website.

Also I saw a news item for event Today at said park. But apparently I was somking some seriously wrong crack, since there is nothing but regular events there.
