Excuse me, decreasing radius...

Glad you said that... I was going over and over that trying to figure
out what set of increasing radius lefts you were talking about;) That is
a great turn, then the sharp right hander right after it can be a nice
turn too with the birm right there on the side to ride on.
What was interesting to me was the perspective you and Sean had of the
track, from the track, in your first visit. The three of us were sitting
in the "dance party" pits, on the rise and we were watching the guys
across the track take (fly) the 105 (two tabletops that can be taken as
one jump, 105 feet more or less) and the two of you trying to figure out
"where the hell that jump was on the track" as you had just hit them as
two separate doubles and just didn't put it together. I think you are
more of a woods crasher by nature so I guess you get a pass... Now that
other MX racer guy with you:O. Another giggle I got was when somebody
said "the track is getting a bit rough". You ain't seen nothing yet as
they say. That river clay base gets real slick when it gets a bit damp,
and then it starts to rut up. That great diminishing left you like turns
into a set of ruts, 8-10 inches deep, three inches wide, all the way
across the track, and starting about where you start to sit into the
turn and all the way around the corner. When they are moist, they will
suck your front end in and take you down, but when they are dry
(remember, river clay) they harden like concrete and are just plain
scarey;) Several other turns and straights get similar ruts, sometimes
as deep as 12-16 inches and 40 yards long. You really got to just sit
back and keep on the throttle. If you start to cross up, you have to
nail it and hope you pop up and land in the next rut over. Either way,
it is a great track to hone your skills even if it is not representative
of the usual tracks (in reference to track material) we race here in the
north east. This year Tony bought some new grooming equipment and moved
some sand into one particularly moist and rutted straight turning it
into "the Southwick section" of whoops. The grooming has been better
this year than in the past with a couple riders working the gates and
working the track with Tony too...
If you want to see more video and keep up to date on what's going on at
the track and within the community there, get me on Fasebuk at Scott
Ingersoll. Trust me, I am selective about my "friends" on FB, only have
ones who are real friends or seriously involved in the local MX scene so
I don't get a lot of junk when I log in. Sean can hit me too, it's a
great way to keep up on racing, who is going to the track "today", bike
and track reports, and unfortunately like this morning, injury reports
and prognosis, rehab, support, and just see a lot of pix and vids me and
a bunch of folks make and post.
Anyway, it was great hooking up with you guys yesterday, let me know
when you are coming back again!

Dean forgot to mention the steaks and lobsters he made and we ate
before we went fishing! I owe him for that! YUM
Absolutely a blast there yesterday, I prolly did 30 laps as well and I
loved the little TTR125 there, you could lay it so far over and flat
track it in the sections where the YZ125 got a bit squirrely.
The jumps were OK, my favorite was the 3 tables in the back and there
was probably some nut jumping over all of them like a quad, but I
didn't notice as I was having way too much fun. That right hander was
sick! How much more fun could that have been? None!
Dean dragged me out and got me hooked on woods riding and I think I
have now done the same to him in respect to riding moto tracks...I'd
love to see him get another bike in addition to the GG like a
YZ250...just because they are so plush on the track compared to
landing on a woods bike. And I could ride it too ahaha
Heat was bit much. F^ck are you kidding???
I was gonna drink the windshield wiper fluid out of Deans van but I
was too tired to lift the hood.
Nice meeting The Mouse and Dad. He saved me with a huge glass of water
and some EZ Up shade. That rocked. Thanks ! The article is on how to
buy a used dirtbike and if Dean got the shots I will use them! LOL
Looking forward to going there during the week and doing a photo
session. I sent the Mouse a FB request so we can keep track of each
other - braaaaaaaaaap!!

Pffftttt. Remember, that's my home track. I got 6 year olds on PW50's I
could send out there to smoke you... They are like a swarm of flies. And
if that doesn't work, I will just tell them all you have sponge bob and
Icecream in your van! LOL!!!
