The smile says it all, even after stacking it
So my day started off a little slow due to a few to many liquid refreshments and dancing in a Tutu the night before... at a wedding (Pic of me in yet another dress...) Just to explain myself, 10 years ago in a moment of weakness I made a pact with a friend that if she ever got married I would wear a Tutu to her wedding... 10 years later there she was and there I stood in my skirt. Funnily enough the Wairarapa farmer she was marrying and his family took it rather well, one of the guys even asked how I keep in-grown hairs away LOL.
Right back to racing, Vegas had put on a fantastic day for us weather was good, company was great and the tracks were superb. I think part of my excitement was because I had had such a bullocks ride around Karapoti the weekend before, anything would be an improvement.
Earlier in the week I took the bike to the guys at Rocket Bikes and they fitted my favorite Larsen TT tyres and a Stan's Tubeless kit. Admittedly I was highly skeptical of the Stan's Kit at first but they worked perfect, don't be afraid to try something new I say. Thanks guys nice effort on the bike, only thing holding it back now is the fat heifer riding it, will get the bike off the heifer for Nats :)
If you have not already been in to Rocket Bikes Lyall Bay, stop in for a chat, their all top b@stards and about as helpful as you can be without getting a law suit against ya ;) Special thanks to Nathan & Mike.
The first 30min of the race were pain sureved up with a little "no sympathy" "for self infliction", until I came down a couple of drop offs and got the exit ALL wrong... over the handle bars resulting in a dirt mask for me. Best thing that could have happened, as it snapped me into aggressive ride mode. Away I went power to the hills and attacking the downs. Currently I was back in 10th place overall where I finished, but the track was so sweet and I had finally hit my stride I just gave it shit.
Cruised through to the finish to the reception of my family. Afterwards went for a sifty ride with my Nephew (DJ) who's a little gun on the bike, watch this space.
