Kissena this SUNDAY

racing is on for this SUNDAY at kissena, not this saturday as accidentally advertised.

it is for a good cause (to benefit recently injured messengers) and there will be cash prizes and prizes offered by crumpler (and trackstar, i think).

the concept is for this day to have a relaxed atmosphere with a barbeque feel to it (there will be food and stuff). newbies are welcome, as there will be a "C" group (where the rules will be relaxed as well) if enough people show. registration starts at 10am and will remain open even after racing starts, and i hope for a while afterwards, too.

i get the feeling that a lot of A Group guys won't be there since the promoters haven't had time to really drum up A level support, but i am hoping you thigh guys will show and keep it interesting.

the masters catagory has also been relaxed to include those 35 and over, just so gerry can kick more guys' butts.

so show up and win dough!

Brean,

Did you stop by the hospital to see how the crashed rider was doing (sorry, don't know his name).

Awesome keirin today, by the way! The whole event was a lot of fun.

The burn out motor pacing is what I think you are talking about at the end. He broken his collarbone .

He came to the track when we were packing up. Hope we can get people like that every week (Wed and Sun).

Thanks for coming down and racing.

CEYA!
