SFRC in the back 40

 The Sang-froid riding club hosted a fun event last sunday. The idea is to see if we could make it from Scappoose to vernonia on dirt. It's all logging roads , some dead end , some go completely the wrong way ect.   No GPS allowed and no cell phones so it was wild out there. We grouped up in teams of three so no one was left for dead out there.

We all made it to vernonia but not without a bunch of good stories . We all had came across gates that we figured ways to get around.

The o'l run around.

 Flat track'n happened again this last saturday.

 Tim Webb's motivation on long rides.

 Here's me waaayy out front, or.. was it way behind.
 Me doing some pre race stretches, getting loose.
 My bike looks good next to trophy's but they are not mine....
Travis "the champ" Gardner wins twice at the Salem fairgrounds, he's unstoppable.

6 hour Moto GP

 The start, dump your bike over run back 20 ft , run back start your bike (hopefully) and get out of there.

 Our GP team was Joe Carlino, Java Fernandez, Big Joe and myself so we called ourselves the J-boys.

 Joe getting after it.

 The track went all over, through fields ,through a moto track ,single track ,rocks . One lap was around 13 miles so it usually took around 25 mins per lap.

 Joe coming around one of many wheat field corners.

 Here's Java giving joe a pep talk for Joe's last lap of the event, telling him things like ,keep it pinned and loosers dont get trophy's and what not.

6 hours of racing, 1 flat tire, gallons of gas burnt, and a couple crashes later we left with 1st place trophy's. I still cant believe it, well I guess I can cause I'm sore as shit as I'm typing up this post.
