If you are wondering how the racing is going....

Today was the first day of racing and the boys raced [2] 45 minute grand prix's...
OMG the course was crazy -5 mile course- going up the steepest hills...
Kameron took a 10th in Intermediate - he rode the whole race without a back brake
Kieffer took a 9th place in Novice
 
Race #2 -
Kameron got a pretty good start and then halfway through he got a flat front tire - darn it
Kieffer was moving up to 3rd in his race - and then he seized the motor - having to push his bike up a hill to ride down to the pits! 
 
[ in all the years... that is the 2nd bike that did that - which is pretty good]
 
Both Kameron and Kieffer had a pretty good attitude about it, they came back to the pits, jumped on their other bikes, and then proceeded to finish the last lap - to get points - instead of a DNF [Did not finish]
No one should protest they changed bikes because they were both in last place by then...
 
Anyway, they had so much fun, just goofing off, playing tag with each other... at the finish line they were pumping their hands in the air like they had just won or something... 
 
even tho they were the last racers to finish by a mile...
 
the announcers thought it was funny anyway...
 
So we are going again in the morning [6am] and 36 degrees... 
"I love the sound of four stroke motorcycles in the morning!" 
[That was a play on words from Apocalypse Now Movie - "I love the smell of napalm in the morning" I use to be able to say "I love the smell of 2 stroke oil in the morning" but no one races 2 strokes hardly anymore so I had to use sound of Four stroke...
 
did you get all that? 
C'mon don't fall behind...  Keep up...!
 
Anyway Sunday is the last day of racing... then they combine Saturday and Sundays points for the overall place... 
 
Ill take pictures...
 
Oh.... Diane, your son made it here safe and sound... no worries...  he is a funny kid... I never know when he is serious!
 
Just like Kieffer - [Poker face while telling the tallest tales...]
 
Kieffer and Devin have been friends since the 6th grade! Then they moved... ;(   Waaaaa sniff sniff
 
[I have to say they are the best kind of friends to have... When Kieffer broke his arm and leg in that bad accident 4 years ago... they drove 2 hours to come and visit him...!  They are good people!]
 
Ok gotta go watch New York kill the Patriots... he he  then go to bed... 6am and 38 degrees are waiting for me Sunday morning...
