Re: Localriders.com Race report July 21 2007

Nice ride guys...sorry we couldn't put up more of a fight for ya but our rear tire gave up the ghost. We are in contact with Pirelli to figure out what happend. We had 2 SC2 slicks that went away real fast this past weekend...almost as if the latest batch we bought were qualifiers! We'll know more soon. There was about 15 laps the bike tried to toss me on every turn. I finally declared defeat and came in. We got the tire changed in record time and managed to stay ahead of Crooked River to finish 2nd.

This is what I had to work with just prior and a few laps after colliding with BLT Racing...and I am sorry about that if your out there BLT.
And no, steel does not have the same coefficient of friction as rubber!
It was a hell of a ride!

Congrats on the win guys.
