Bonebender/ Smithville

What a great race on Sunday.. I woke up this morning and felt like I was hit by a truck!! Just maybe if I can quit going over my handlebars, might help.. Hoppe, Randy, Crook, Jimbo, JP and I all made the venture to Smithville to race Bonebender. JP brought some more shores sports fellas with him, Jason, G-mapes. We all raced (minus jim who did three hour solo) duo six hour races.

Even saw a couple of joetown folks down losing their racing virginity down there. Larry and Nick. (T-Garv you’re a pussy for not showing up)Anyway, I think they had a good time of it… Seem to have smiles on their faces anyway…

All in all, it was a great time, we all were pushing it so hard we were cramping like crazy. Hoppe and I battled it out with JP and GMapes for 3rd…. We got it, and they came up with 4th place.. 1st went to Cameron and Travis D, put in another lap on us for that matter, them boys are smoken fast.. Probably about 25 min from lapping us...
We missed out of 2nd by I think about 5-8 min…

All of the results, etc… Are not posted yet, so I will get back to post some more stuff later..

Checked all the race calendars for races between now and our race May 8th… There are three races, however two of them are over 3 hours away (Neosho MO & Wilson Lake KS).

Saturday May 1st, Fat Tire Series has a 3/6 hour race called Ride with the Devil taking place at Clinton Lake. The entry fees are a little pricy, but I am game if anyone else is interested..

Okay, never mind. I just read a post on facebook from the Fat Tire folks that the Clinton lake race is moved to October...

Definately a fun day in Smithville with good results to boot.
Everyone rode strong for Shore Sports and it was good to see some of the other St.Joe boys out there too.
Krug race coming up on May 8th. Randy and I got up there tonight and hauled in the necessary wood for the last two "optional" bridges at the water crossings so with a little luck they will be finished soon.
If you hav'nt been riding up there you need to check it out before the race.
