    Looks like a well attended meet, inevitably there'll be some good racing.

  3. Was at the MX Nationals next door last weekend and I have to say watch where you walk around the Broadford complex.

    A lot of dirt was moved around as a result of all the recent rain and the staff are having to repair a lot of the roads and tracks around the complex.

    The road course itself looked ok from a distance when I giving a few interstate visitors a PVDA tour of the complex.

  12. I saw you guys when we came around after the red flag and it didn't look cool at all. There were a number of crashes in my class over the weekend and two more that were ambulanced away......broken bones but thankfully nothing permanent.

    But all the races all ran so big credit to Preston for good organisation and the weather and track atmosphere were great.

    I didn't win or podium and I didn't crash but I had a great time with lots of dicing, I don't think I did a lap without passing or being passed (more often) and I got a personal best to keep me happy.

    Good weekend!

    HUGE Thanks to the Medical crew and Brendan, Coralee and Francis from Preston and MV for looking after me and getting me safely to hospital.

    Other than the above smashed my pb on Saturday morning in Qualifying by a whole second, did a 1:06.06 and this pic taken by Peter Wright from KTJ Images.

  17. Ouch! When are you expected back on track?

    That's a very respectable time, even more so for a chookie.

    Bike needs some work and I need new leathers and helmet too.
