Haven't baked a recycled cake in a while, but figured I should this time. I'm sure you realize that's not your azz-age..yet it would be another long past tail to share with others at the Condo.

Best wishes DC, and thanks for the Photo-card thank you I got in the mail today from you and Cal. No thanks needed though. Brotherly love is what it is.

Justin Miller
Russ showed up in New Ulm today for the RCQ. He missed the first moto because he decided to change a gear. In the main him and I were neck and neck right next to each other going up the triple in the first straight. I lost control and crashed. My timing was all wrong going into it triple and I tried to manual. Landed on my shoulder and went to the ER. No broken bones but need to get it looked at more. It is pretty messed up so I will likely be done for the season. It feels like it keeps poping in and out. My work is closed all this coming week, and I can still work just might be a bit uncomfortable.

Never had Vicadin until today. That stuff really works!

I forget the other guy's name we were racing but both him and Russ were awesome guys before and after the crash. I am just glad I did not take either of them out with me. I am pretty bummed. I had 8 1st places and 1 second place so far this year and my season is basically over. My sons bedroom is bare studs right now along with both stairwells in my house. I have a lot of projects that will be put on hold for a while. I am not the type of person to sit around and relax, so it is going to be a difficult healing process for me.
Paul Springer
Sorry to hear about your crash Justin, especially on your birthday! Happy birthday bud...

I just got off the phone with Russ and he filled me in so I decided to go post it and you beat me to it.

One of the other guys in your moto was Keith Christianson and I am not sure of your 4th, I think it was a track volunteer just rolling around if Russ had it right (?)

Heal fast and I hope to see you soon! good3.gif

I had a good time as well, even though I got LAST.....
I think it's time I invest in some clipless pedals...I am just very scared of crashing in them..
Paul Springer
Nice racing guys!

Kraker and I went out there to volunteer some time working on the track list. We pulled some weeds, heated and packed some tar, repaired some erroded clay and hung some banner hang bar. That track is SWEET and FAST, those tar berms a nuts. We rode for a bit and had a great time. The volunteer turn out at Isanti is awesome, great people. good3.gif

Thanks guys for coming to the track and lending a hand... we are only as good as the people who help each and every week to make things run. We are really blessed with the excitement that everyone brings to our community while making the track great. We have a dream as they say and we are only in the begining phases of the "plan." I was looking through some old photo's and data on the races and the transformation has been amazing to be part of. We are racing tonight and next Tuesday so we hope to see you there.

Thanks again for coming up and spending some time at RR it is always appreciated and welcomed.

Gary, get your butt over to Faribault on a Thursday night. We have a great group of cruiser riders that show up every week.


Kevin, you and the volunteers have done an incredible job with the Rum River track. Thanks for all the hard work.

Me and my boys had tons of fun at toads cove in centerville WI tonight. By far, one of the top 3 tracks in the midwest!
I got 2nd in class racing with the young guns
Ted got 3rd racing 12 year olds
Ben got 2nd-just a hair off 1st place racing 9 year old.

Perfect racing weather tonight!

by the way, every MN rider should come here for the Redline Cup in August -you will not be disappointed.

Missed this!

GREAT JOB ISANTI!

Wow! What a tremendous job at the Rum River® BMX track! Very nice, fast! All those that have put in the time – great job! Congratulations on the State Race well deserved.

Race Results: All I can say “That A-Z ~ Aaron Zadon guy is Fast!” Again, Big Block™ Auman just smokes (what brand?) on the track. Next time I’ll need to tighten my helmet he makes my head spin. Good Fun!

S.K., what do you do with these tickets?



B. Apold
Hey all.... Its been to long! Vacation, Graduation and Grad party, work x 10, etc... Hope to make part of the Condo..

Hello my Minnesota bros!
I was taking some time off from V after posting my 6000th thread/reply/post but I decided I needed to touch base with you guys before seeing some of you next week. I'll be in town Wednesday, fishing up north w/ Russ's Dad on Thursday then we will be heading down on Friday & spending the night somewhere. Anybody have any leads on a decent hotel with king size beds?
If I've never met you before just look for me & Russ sporting these new cowboy hats I'm bringing from Utah, ready to saddle up Russ?



Holla back!
Bruce Ritter, 41-45 cruiser, SLC, Utah...... baby!
JoeLamarsh
Brokeback Bruce!

Looking forward to seeing you!
bnd
Don't know what you mean by that............I'm happily married with a kid(?)

.....& oh yeah, I meant to say "king size bed" not "beds".
Russ is on the internet now & is working his way into joining us here shortly.

MN2Z - after the 10X class races you take that awsome looking ticket to the prize window and you can get a nifty trophy, Rum River Dollars, or saver stamps. biggrin.gif

It was great to see you on Thursday.. I hope to see you more in the future. You will need to watch out though there is some crazy guy who annouces while he is racing and he totally dominates. Well he dominates some of the 4 year old novice class. Ok.. he pretty much sucks but its a fun show.

It's like you can read my mind or something............."t"-back & in hot pink? That would be a bonus as it would match the trim on my cruiser.

whats the faribault track like.overgrown like the pics on ATR or did they redo it
bnd
It would be cool if the Condo motos were run in a Pro (scramble?) format. That would allow us to race three times against different racks of guys & gals. After 3rd moto you tally up the low points & you move on. That's how we do our no-clips races. Just saying. smile.gif
