Good find Matt.

"Turn #10-11 is WOT, was no frickin' haybales last time !!"

Gotta do your sighting lap in the am.

For those of you that didn't get it.... that's Felix on the primer grey ZX-10 with the Black/White leathers in the top pic.

Usually you can short-cut that corner pretty good where the hay bales are... but in the infinate wisdome of Fasttrack, they decided that 'Because the AMA is planning on putting the hay bales there next weekend so are we'. Well, that turned out to be a great idea... the ambulance and crash truck were at that corner all morning picking up broken riders and broken bikes. And to top it off, the AMA did NOT have hay bales that close to the track.

Oh, and by the way... Felix's 10 isn't primer grey anymore!

Not sure.... they managed to wreck another bike from the same pit later in the day. I don't know if it was the same rider but I suspect it was.

I haven't been there since late in 06. When I went for the AMA race I saw they move the fence/wall back quite a ways. I thought that was a good thing. A few years back a guy got a real bad head shake, (I think he tapped the wall) and then went across to the other side, ended up pretty bad (air lifted away). I have had a few good/bad moments there also. I watched a few privateers have some moments this past weekend.

I rememeber last year durning testing Aaron Yates crashed coming out of turn 10-11. He ended up with a broken clavicle. I thought for sure something would be done after that.
