I’m assuming showing who’s boss has a different meaning in the states then?! Haha..

Nope means the same thing. Im just not really all that fast. I just go to ride and have fun. And most of all come home safe. Cant afford to get competitive and crash and hurt myself.

No the meaning is the same. I just dont go into a race expecting to win. I just go to have as much fun as i can. If that equals a win then so be it. But i dont get competitive because that is what leads to wrecks and injury. Which i cant afford rightnow. Expecially with a disney trip for my daughter about a month away. So im gunna go out and ride to my ability and see where that lands me. Last few years its been on the podium atleast.

Well race is over. I took 2nd in both motos out of 6 or 7 riders? Something like that. I will post the gopro footage tomorrow when i can upload it to youtube. Im gunna warn you now. The first moto video has some colorful language. That race was a crap show. They redflagged the first start because all the guys behind me dont know how to use brakes and used me as a stopping helper and forced me through the corner. The restart went better but halfway through the guy in front of me slowed way down like they were gunna red flag it again and confused me so we slow way down for a while and get passed but another crash lands me in second on that moto at the end.

Great footage, heat 1 was a bit of a fiasco wasn’t it, what happened behind you? I see you had to cut the corner to escape some kind of collision.

No one behind me hit the brakes. They used me as stopping power and forced me through the first corner. LoL

Oh I see, not very sporting of them is it! I see why the marshals restarted the race now.

Well the real reason they restarted the race is the first guy that hit me flipped instantly because his front tires hit my back tires and we all know how that story ends. Then the dude behind him was a buddy if mine and he almost ran the dude over. They were tangled up and they redflagged it because they were in the middle of the track still. Rubbing is racing but hurting yourself or someone else is another thing. I dont think they meant to do it. Just guys that had never raced before.

The second moto my buddy came over on me and i decided it wasnt worth hurting him over so i filed in and just worked my way passed a bunch of guys. My buddy was one of the first time racers. And i know he wasnt letting off and had i pushed the issue i could have wrecked him and started up with the other guys. But im aware of my ability and race craft so i can work around some guys in the time its necessary.
