    At the WMRRA rider's meeting, it was called out that the bumpers are starting to degrade and shouldn't be ridden on, as it could lead to problems. Here is what happened me to me last week as I ran right up on the edge of one.

    Maybe you should not ride on the bumpers. It could lead to problems.

    Anytime! Congrats on graduating. You looked great out there.

    Yup, I got too close and it was completely my fault.

    I told him the same thing yesterday. The race I timed from T7, he was consistent in putting down 1:49. I should have timed you too for comparison. :nana


    Jared ~ what corner was that in?

    You didn't see it? The rider kicked it as he was hauling ass on two feet to get off the track.

    Damn, how did your track suit/bike look after that? The camera angle makes that look way more crazier than it probably was. Did ya continue on after that?

    I had a similar moment on the same corner/bumper but luckily wasn't leaned over nearly as much and got through it. Made for an 'oh shit' instant though.
