World Superbike weekend @ MMP

Done! Made it home in just under 7 hrs, now get laundry done, work two days, then jump on a plane for Road America. 
The weather wasn't that great this weekend. Had sun, wind, rain, and it even tried to hail/snow at the start of the XR race. Two constants were wind and cold.
The racing for AMA classes was great. WSBK was good for the first couple of laps, then was boring with very little passing.  Decent weekend overall. I'll try to post the video I took of launch control in a Ducati.

Miller 2011

WET and COLD describe today.Woke up to pouring rain and 40 degrees, and it never stopped or got any warmer that 43 degrees. While it was cold weather wise the on track activities were great. Close racing and a good finish for Daytona. World superbikes were fast and had real race gas. Superbike racing tomarrow.

Tooele, UT World SBK Weekend

I am in Toeele Utah this weekend for the combined World Superbike and American Suberbike weekend. Should be a good one except they put the races on monday and this means that I cannot run in the Bolder Boulder back home. 
I drove out and naturally it was very windy going accross Wyoming. There is also a lot of snow still in the mountains.

Yesterday and to day are working days, with ontrack activities starting tomarrow. I did get to go for a bike ride yesterday and besides finding a nice climb, did a couple of laps on the track.

"Tired" doesn't say enough

The day after a race weekend is usually brutal. Get up at 0 dark thirty, pack and drop off the rental car, security, squeez into the flying petri dish. Next find your car, go to work, try not to fall asleep while catching up on email, go home and crash. But it's worth it, and I ready to do it again next Wednesday.

Infineon race weekend

Good weekend. I am sunburned and tired, racing was good, and we dodged the heavy rain. Pictures to follow. Note to self...do not use Oakland airport in the future.

Update: why the long gap in posts, and the fix.

Just updated to a new phone and found the Blogger app on android, so now updates will be easier and more often. Heading out to Sears point today for round 2 of the superbike series.
