Me (47)and Geoff (45) have been riding all UK shorttrack rounds and a couple of Euro rounds as well. We rode a big meeting in Teterow, Germany at the beginning of September. I got knocked off by a flying highsided bike in the 3rd corner of the 1st heat. It pretty much sucked and I had to sit out the rest of the meeting. Geoff was riding well and progressed through the heats to make the final. He had made himself a Ti hotshot, so once the sun went down and the floods came on he broke it out. The sheet of sparks was pretty impressive and the crowd seemed to like it!
Anyway, the next day we drove from Northern Germany down through Czech Republic to Austria. The next round took place on a small grippy track which is normally used for quad racing. I was still feelin' pretty sore but figured having driven a couple of days I might as well ride. Geoff had a ton of bike troubles but I managed to make the final.
Since then we have ridden a couple of UK rounds the last of which was on Sunday.
Anyway, it's been a great season so far. Got a hillclimb going down this weekend and some more flattrack coming up soon after so I will be sure to keep you guys posted. Anthony
