Important race question

Wednesday, 25 July

Why the heck do the cat 4-5s yell so much during their race at Pacific Raceways? Are they all hard of hearing? It doesn't sound like "slowing" or "hold your line." It's more like they're continuing ten arguments from the previous week. There could actually be racing going on if they weren't expending all their energy yelling at each other.

Yeah, yeah, I could go ride with a different field. But half of the masters guys are racing in shorts that should've been retired three years ago, and the 1-2s are so strung out most of the time that there's no nice draft for wimps like me to sit in. So I make do with the 4s until the sketch factor kicks in. But the yelling has got to go....

They are just yelling "where the heck is Curly!" as they don't know how to ride without him.

DD and I were laughing at the 4/5's doing this at Seward, too. It was pretty silly. I guess they don't call it the "thursday night worlds" for nothing!

In the SIR 1/2's, the yelling factor largely is decided by the presence or absence of one particular rider...

yeah... even if I showed up they still wouldn't be riding with me at my current fitness level. I'll be there for hotdog night tho.

It was a crazy night indeed. There sure are a lot of strong personalities in that group!
