Recent Action

It seems that there’s been quite a bit of water under the bridge since I’ve posted any new photos here.  Well, I can honestly say that I’ve been busy.  I have a lot more time during the week now with my little one in kindergarten, but I’ve taken on a lot more work in addition to catching up on all of the things that I had to put off until time permitted.  There was a good event out at Big Springs.  It was a two-day gig with the Best of Kansas race on one day and the Forward Motion Team Hare Scramble the next.  That was Labor Day weekend and it rang the summer out on a good note for most folks.  Here, Tim Wolfe, from MotorCare in Lawrence does his best to cut inside a blast of TT track roost.

After that, the BlackJack Enduro Circuit’s Wolf’s Den Enduro took off down in Kellyville, OK.  The promoters took great care of me and I really enjoyed attending my first BJEC event.  I can only hope that there will be many more like it.  They had a PeeWee race and a family enduro on Saturday afternoon and the weather was great for it.  Sunday’s main event was dusty, but the crowd still loved every bit of it.  There were a couple of guys who left on the backboards though, and I hope that they’re recovering well.  Zach Ingram is just starting his day in the photo below.  He finished the day with an overall win.

This past weekend, I decided that I’d take a shot and check out something new.  Trials.  The Quarry Cup was happening up in Trenton, MO and I headed that way in the sprinkling rain to see what I could catch.  It turned out to be a great Saturday.  I had hoped to return for Sunday’s sections, but it looked like a good bit of rain was headed that way, so I took advantage of a day home with my daughter; two great things in one weekend.  It took a bit of time and some hints from some Masters and Experts, but I figured out how things worked and was able to be in the right place at the right time…..a few times.  I left the event wanting to try it myself….but then there’s that whole balance vs gravity thing that I have problems with…repeatedly.  The folks out on the course made it all look easy, but I know better.

This weekend, I’ll be headed for Quenemo for the Forward Motion Hare Scramble there.  Should be good fun.
