  1. It looks like I will not even be able to wash my bike until Thursday afternoon. I have 2 beds unaccounted for in the RV.
  2. That is a good goal. I have about 20 pounds of Ballinger Canyon mud to get off my bike from this past week.
  3. The longitude goes right through Plaster City. 2-1/2 miles NW puts you here. My guess is that there is nothing recognizable at the site, but you never know. Approximate Sackets Wells Site.kmz
  4. 47deg north is in Washington. Could you double check your coordinates?
  5. USGP MXdN

    Also interesting- Italy wasn't on anyone's radar for even a podium position, and they nearly won. There is an interview with Cairoli after the races and he is clearly bummed as he goes through the opportunities they had that would have swung the result.
  6. USGP MXdN

    To take a currently unpopular but contrarian view, while it wasn't good, it wasn't near as apocalyptic as many are going on about. Consider: In 2015, in France, the US team came within a whisker of winning. We didn't send our best team possible. In 2016, the US would almost have certainly have won if Jason Anderson didn't get landed on after winning the first moto. The US was still in the lead when Cooper Webb went down with a lap to go in the final moto. This was a team with 2 250 riders on it (Webb rode a 450 for this race). Last year, at the USGP, Tomac went 1-3 in MXGP and RJ Hampshire went 1-1 in MX2. The GP guys didn't turn into supermen over the last 12 months, nor did the AMA guys forget how to ride. What is for sure is the GP field is deeper than it has been in 30 years, and the US riders had terrible starts (likely related to the significantly different starting procedure used in the GPs) and really needed their A game to overcome, which they didn't have. Not helping the US cause was riders having career days (Coldenhoff and Lupino) or by far their best day of the year (Paulin). It just wasn't the US team's day.
  7. USGP MXdN

    Not to nitpick too much, but it is not the USGP, but the MXdN. And I'm leaving tomorrow.
  8. I just checked some of my ride data- I have a funny story for offline later.
  9. 5C? We're such morons. You are the only one there I would have recognized.
  10. I finally made it out about 9pm and met up with a former riding buddy/roomate, and wasn't able to connect with any SDAR members. I only fell once and finished without any real problems. I am definitely out of riding fast practice, the whole first loop I was just trying to get my eyes to look where they should. My last loop, I was definitely in 'lets finish this' mode. I was trying to explain to my son about how you used to get a carbon copy of your scorecard. He had no idea what carbon paper is. I like the idea of taking a picture of the scorecard, I wish I had thought of that.
  11. sent the threatening participants a DM with my contact info. There are a couple of places they have staged in the past.
  12. By my reckoning, you could come back to the pits after every test if you wanted to. 8 tests, around 6 miles/test. Terrainwise, my expectation is that it will be more geared towards technical desert rather than top gear whoop sections. I generally do not feel outgunned on a 250F.
  13. I've made my arrangements. If someone wants to split the rental car and hotel, let me know. Leaving Thursday, returning Tuesday.
  14. Got the random email from Rob that reminded me to sign up for this: I'll be leaving Saturday afternoon with my son (who isn't racing), and we have trailer space and a bed available. My goal is to finish.
