OCT 4–WORCS: BERTHLOUD, CO.
We were lucky enough to have Tony Acosta from MRO (motor racing outreach) at the race to do the prayer before the race. It looks like he?ll be going to all the WORCS races for support and Sunday morning Chapel service. This is great news.
Kawasaki Team green had a lot of riders at the race this weekend. In the pro class it was Lance, Bobby, David, Brian Brown, and myself.
It?s been really cool to see a lot more mx/sx riders showing up for the WORCS races. This time we had a couple of Colorado riders (Matt Karlsen and Ted Campbell who used to live in Phoenix) show up and give it a try. We also had Kris Papworth from Utah here. I knew Matt was a good off-road rider, since he did overall a National Hare Scramble up in Colorado a few years ago (I finished 5th at that race).
Everyone from the WORCS crew did a great job at the race, especially after all the rain we?ve been getting up here. The course was like a huge outdoor national, but it was a lot of fun. That was some of the best dirt I?ve ever raced on (besides Washougal). The course started to get pretty rough and some really big ruts. It was a lot of fun.
Next weekend I have off, but I?ll be heading up to the US Open (supporting Ryan Clark) and watching it with Charlotte (my wife). The following weekend I have another WORCS race at Glen Helen.
