Yes, Saturday was an awesome day, my only beef was the after-race festivities started too soon so hardly anyone watched the three mains. The first main was the Open Class which I would have expected everyone would want to watch. I am not trying to be a kill-joy, but part of promoting a sport is keeping everyone in their seats till the end. We need to keep building up the local “heros” every chance we can. You never know who the next Philly D. or Rich Farside (to name a couple) is gonna be.
Speaking of heros, my hat’s off to Rich Farside for rolling the gate 6 times even though you knew it was extremely painful to do so. A lot of kids look up to you Rich. Good Job.
It was good to see Allen Thompson (35-39 Cruiser) there after his bad fall at HC BMX a few weeks ago. Even though he had some extensive surgery, the doctors expect him to make a full recovery, although I don’t know if that includes racing.
I do agree the after-race party was really well planned and made the day that much more fun for a lot of the kids and families. Kind of a something-for-everyone day at the race track.
It was a great day of racing, there were over 40 motos, and I know of at least a couple of riders who were not qualified but came and gave their best in the open. Lets all get out there and keep preaching BMX so we get 50-60 motos at next year’s race!!
Thank you NJ BMX & CJBMX for a job well done!! 😀August 21, 2006 at 1:04 am #33234bmiddaughMember
and thanks to Craig for coming through with the bus info for the Pres Cup.
These guys are NO JOKE.
They’re coming through.
We had to reschedule the meeting for Sept 9th, (The 10th is a sunday folks, sort blew that one..) around 4- 4:30.
Expect some fun there…August 21, 2006 at 1:18 am #33240RFarsideMember
I had a great time at the race this weekend. I would have rather been racing but I am just glad I could get out of the house and make the trip up. I also want to thank the whole crew for putting on a great event. It was nice to see so many people hanging around after the race. I think if we keep this positive attitude we will have some great things to come next year.August 21, 2006 at 1:33 am #33242bmxerMember
I agree it was a job well done!!! It was nice to see the kids having fun with the dunk tank and just goofing around with each other. Thanks to all the volunteers who put this together.
