6.40s is not bad for SWB specially with high altitude! Is the bike strapped?

I've been [email protected] foot shifting and All I have done is seat time! So I know you can get there or faster just by practicing!

Red did I read the $$$ entry right....$70 for members and $90 for non Members?....this would be a record for me in Sacramento for any race and in these economical times I would say some sponsor is smoking crack if they think they will be successful in getting riders there...maybe I should do the Test and tune that friday as the payout is still no different than any others in the past. :headshake
