My son Kane 357 will be racing the Aprillia. Looking forward to Parker. This will be the first BITD race I've been to with him.
Very cool. Im glad. Last I heard her parents would let her race/ride anymore. Same Andrea?No, it's little Andrea from the 100's MC. She's like my little sis. Can't wait to finally race one with her. She'll have to get used to my big beast however. She's only ever ridden a 2-stroke!
Hey Jeff - probly not. He thought about it but he really can't handle sitting in that heat all day long. If it was only going to be 85 that day, then maybe. But I'm sure it's going to be 95+.hey patty
is chris going to race the rzr
robbie, are you entered to race quad pro and quad expert? if so then that tells me that the pro's and experts arent racing against each other
Hey Neil! How come you're not racing? Is Pat soloing? No way. Are you guys doing any night races this summer or are you done with district?Patty, definately do the unclassified race. Everyone is running it a mellow pace to get a feel for the track. Bring an extra quad to run it on if ya got one. Just do like Doug said take a couple laps, then pull in and take the DNF.
Weren't the races 8 laps last year? The schedule shows 6 for this year. I e-mailed BITD asking for more laps b/c with a 3 man team if you get lapped by the leader then one rider only gets to do one lap and that would really suck. I think they should shorten the Open races (since everyone does 2 laps and DNFs anyway) and combine the UTV and Quad Open race so that all of the real races can go 7 or 8 laps.
If you agree, please let BITD know so we can all get our monies worth.
I just looked up the weather for next weekend - a "cool" 98 degrees!
I have a couple more questions ... (sorry, I really hate not knowing)
Are we allowed to drive our trucks down to the pit area by the water to unload everything or should I bring my wagon and hiking shoes?
About the quads, do we really have to use one of those fishtail looking (dorky) number plates in back? I know this is a new rule (last year I think) or can I get away with a regular number plate in back?
Thanks guys and can't wait to see ya'll!
Why should the utv and quad races be together? I think bikes are easier to pass put them with the utv's. OR just let bitd do what they are going to do and smile about it.
Yes, the last two years the "real" races were 8 laps. Not sure I understand why, same number of races as the last two years, but BITD cut the laps. Maybe the loops are longer? Not really thrilled to do the unclassified race with the UTV's, but I guess if it got us extra laps, I might be for it. I will send a e-mail to BITD later today.
What really sucks, is if you think about it, I am spending all this money to go to Parker to race for two laps! (Three man team.) A whole 22 miles! Just does not seem worth it to me. If this was not a points race, I would not be there....
Cold front must be going through! Last two years it has been around 104 degrees. Only 98 will be nice!
Thanks for seeing my point. Your spending all this money for 2 laps but what if you have a minor problem and get lapped by the lead Pro, then you did it all for 1 lap (11.5 miles)!!
I noticed last year that BITD really became pressed for time towards the end of the day and cut my race (#6?) by a lap unannounced. I think that they are afraid of falling behind schedule again.
