RYE HOUSE RAZZLE !
Thanks Jason for organising a fab day of play !
A whole day of practice for just £50 - bargain , and as it was just us slow losers out there - a chance to go round and round and round . We had an open pit and i gained the most track time ever .
Anthony started the proceedings by going straight out and highsiding (did i mention the wet ?) leaving him with a limp all day .
Later when i thought it was safe , i pulled the pin and went for it - straight into the gaurd fence on the exit of turn 4 - the scene of everyones crashes for the day . It was a bit nasty and the chain link fence ripped the top of my glove open and i'm looking at a very swollen hand today !
Later to cheer myself up i highsided there too !
The atmosphere in the pits was relaxed with the Guy who opened the place up for us making us cups of tea all day and generally being very helpfull , thanks mate .
Actually everyone came off a few times and sloshed about in the mud , but after lunch the track dried enough for us to get some proper laps in - resulting in a few ding-dongs out there !
Actually i thought (because of the rain we'd been having ) that it would be a wash out , so bought along my trusty Husaberg 400 enduro - in order to at least have a ride round , but we all went out on it just to see what grip really feels like - and it was amazing ! like being on rails and sideways if you want (Sideburn Ben was particularly enamoured with it as he'd bought his CCM with balding supermoto road tyres) the little 400 motor being nice n soft for the wet .
Nice to see Lez out today looking fit and well (not back on a bike yet ) .
Randall was out on his FTR honda - riding like a man posessed , we spent a few laps chasing each othe unit i decided he'd be usefull to stop my slide as i careered up inside him - whoops !
We all had a bit of a bike swapping session and it was great to finally ride the CO-BUILT rotax , what a light bike that is ! then at the end i was able to ride the marlboro coloured woods bike (even tho i'd just stacked mine !) and we gelled together and i got ten straight laps in at dash-for-cash speed ! What a day .
BIG THANKS TO JASON FOR ORGANISING IT , CHEERS MATE .
