Ya I'm starting to get pretty keen. Really looking forward to it. Hopefully our rainy season will be done and we will have some good weather. I've never been on a track before so it will be an eye opener. How is the knee doing?

I have my fingers crossed for a gorgeous hot day too ... I'd hate for it to rain, but I'm sure I'll still have loads of fun regardless


The knee is doing way better now, but it still gets really stiff after long rides. As long as it keeps warm and I keep it stretched I should be ok - thanks for asking.

I'm thinking of going up the day before and staying up at a hotel. I really want to avoid the 4:30am departure from my house just to make it there on time. Are you and your lady planning on it? Let me know and I can start trying to arrange hotels if need be.

I'm happier then a kid on a shopping spree in a toy store. 2nd time on a track and I can't wait!

Ok so how are we going to tell who's who then? Hah I know, when the instructor asks if there are any questions I'll promptly raise my hand up and ask: "who's gmguy and phaedrus"

Are you serious?? Oh man, I was out rock climbing at that time and thought about heading over to Roxannes, but I finished up pretty late and bailed out on the idea. Man it would have been cool to meet you both before hand, but as you said Tuesday

The 5 day forecast is looking pretty sweet so hopefully we will have some good weather. I haven't seen that many suns on the extended forecast yet this year.

Did you have a look at the CD of photos yet? We were having Michel mail ours so we didn't have to cart them around out east with us and they haven't shown up yet. Anything any good?

Oh and did you have to wait at the hospital long for the guy that ended his day prematurely?

Yeah i did actually!! The photos are pretty good, some good shots of myself, but none of me dragging my knee damn it. There were several of yourself and Phaedrus as well, but I decided not to post them. I figured having your permission would be a good idea


We waited about an hour for him to get all done ... final diagnosis; broken humerus, broken collar bone, 2nd degree shoulder separation, broken wrist. All that from a 40km/h highside ... OUCH. Poor kid is doing ok and is working - too bad his summer is over though


FAST School is awesome everyone, I recommend you do it!
Oh and I got to meet 2 GDC members which was totally cool. How Phaedrus picked me out before I even came over is beyond me

Remember when it started raining out towards the last 2 sessions? Well that hairpin turn, I believe turn 5 or 6 where it goes from asphalt to concrete back to asphalt again - well he just highsided and forgot to let go of the handle bars. The bike catapulted him right into the concrete landing him on this left side and well you know the rest ... According to the flag judge at the corner, he said he never got on the gas at all, it was just enough to toss him.
Did you see his helmet? It was completely ruined *shudder*
