We will be there for 2011.

Tyler, I know is in. Robbie and Dawson I am pretty sure are in to, Have not talked Brad or Ace yet.

We where talking after this year, making a team of no more then 5 riders. Gives then more ride time.
October is far away.



Just hope this years not as wet.

The team leader can slice and dice it any way he wants.

This is a very premature statement........but

The Harte boys may be ready to participate this year.....MAYBE. I'm sure I will still be recovering so I could devote all my attention to the effort. We will just have to see how much seat time they get this year and how they progress. They will be 11 and 13 by then.


PS Mom doesn't know this is a thought of mine.

My son will just have turned 12 by then and i am sure he will still be on his 85 and I want him to get involved in this for sure.....Even if not a very competetive team i just want his to experience this even as i did last year

This is Great

Hopefully there is more then One Junior Team :)

The only issue is what your night time lighting will be. This year I was afraid to let Tyler out at night. His max lighting at night is 2 hours. With the rain this year, I don't think he would have made a night lap under 3 hours.



Dan? Does that mean you'll be racing again? You are always thinking Positve!!!!

That would be a VERY optimistic outlook. The Doctor has used the phrase "Life Changing Injury" several times now. :(
