Thanks it was very interesting. Nice Side to See of Trey Canard! I hope he has a better year!

Counting down the Hours..........

I wonder if there is a virtual Supercross game we can join like Superbru?

Lets hope that Trey stays healthy this season. If he does I think that finish in the top 7. When is the first supercross on ESPN?

Looking forward to the start of Dakar tonight!

Nice one dude! You need to get roosted!  :biggrin: I asked when supercross will air on ESPN (Dstv) but now judging from your post you know where to watch it live. Please share.  ???

First race of the season announced 26 January.

I don't feel nearly prepared enough yet, I only have this weekend to practice, as I'm at Ironman next weekend and then its race time.

Did a 90km cycle this morning to try and build more fitness, will see how it goes on the bike this weekend, ribs still very bruised from going over the bars during practice the other day.

Dont Worry Boet. Fitness is key, At least you know how to ride. Take it slowly whilst the others crash their brains out in the First event!

Ja and to finish first you first have to finish so just finishing the first one is a first. Baaaarp!  :biggrin:

Having so much fun on the cycling side though, rode 60km to work this morning, and 30km back in the head wind, at some points it's so much pain, and you just hate cycling and feel so over it, but then later when you reach the destination you feel a sense of accomplishment, especially when your friends drive past you half way and offer a lift, and you turn it down.

No work tomorrow due to the Burry Funeral, so I'll be at the track in the morning, then taking bike in for service and some work on the steering which is too loose.

First race this coming weekend.

Decided to go up to senior class and not race the enduro class, senior class is from 18 upwards, and open to anything from 125-450, the competition will be stiffer so will see how I stack up in the first race here and then we'll know what to work on.

Laptop has the branding on for 2013 :D

Is the Senior class MX?
