Whaat can I say other than another day of beating meself with a stick... This time it was combo, part mechanical + part ran out of matches.
Day prior, rest and relax on the lake (good sign). Morning of, no hunger (bad sign). Drive up, wondering why (bad sign). At Hillside had new agenda, assist in flyer distribution and word spread for BUCK THURS BENEFIT RACE, so racing was secondary (good sign).
On line, the always quiet and too serious tone split by me and me mouth saying "BUCK THURS BE THERE FOR BENEFIT". Some dood of Freewheel gets offended saying "one race at time", huh??? Young Jack was ready to pounce on dood. Young Jack will be LCR one day.
First lap and half was filled with using up matches to get back after 4 dead stops (bottle fall, RD pop, ting ting, and more ting ting). Had no 5th match, light went dark. Time for survival mode and hold off oncomers.
Problem is, Hillside/ Richy Trail is fun, and the tech makes it more fun. In anti fast guy form I give up time for riding the rocks, teeter, skinnys, flings. It's a Ricoh/ LCR thing. I ain't the most skilled but I will not bypass.
Finished off race head down stairing at front wheel... Many excuses/ poor result. Ha
Allgood. Always another book of matches coming up, just don't know how many sticks in the book.
Anybody guess who this riddler is??? He was the top of the LCR food chain back in the day... He is missed among the OG's...
THURS BUCK... BENEFIT FOR FAMILY TRAGEDY (CANCER SUCKS)- RACE/ RIDE/ FAMILY FUN.
Anytime you can ride a bike and it's about more than just riding a bike, that is a good thing.
Bring out the 4" fats... No snow, sand will suffice.
