Watch out for the bumpers at the Ridge
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.

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.


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.

Hey, I got some video of you the newest fast guy...sadly, it wasn't much

Great running with you out there this weekend and well, I'm glad I won't see you in the same classes as me anytime soon unless you downgrade to a little 600

See you at Pacific??

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?

Video of my dirtride? lol

Yes, I'll be @ Pacific for the next round... probably going a little slower than @ The Ridge.

btw, there is a 600 out in my garage... just no 250's... well no 250 4 strokes.

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.
