The _X_ Blog
Well, it went as soon as it came. The season was meant to culminate with a trip up the road to the track I hate to love, central village cycle club, but that didn't happen due to rain fall the two days prior. Although the club still held OP, I am too far along this motocourse to have anything to do with that crap. Its time to do my winter thing, music and training. I will be refreshing the old girls for what next season brings and will provide updates on the progress. It was for what it was, a good season. I just hope next season is as it should be.

With the season on the penultimate lap and the seasons change still holding on to summers golden rays I am satisfied with how this riding season has turned out. I was able to attend both available events that remained on my calendar as well as quite a few OP's to boot. This all on two season old Super-evo bikes after deciding that what I thought was gold turned out to be coal.
Buying the modern bike was a lesson in humility, not all pastures are greener or all change is good. Sometimes it is best to meditate long and hard and seek the Lord for guidance. It was an expensive way to find out "what I was missing". Now I can safely say that my soul is better suited for the old girls I grew up racing.
I had an amazing day at the wick with Toots, the Oracle and the Two Viola's. I believe someone has been missed this season... Oh! thats right,  now if memory serves me well M.I.R.A.'s founding father has been absent form the events I've attended! I knew I was feeling a bit rouge this year, the Prez has yet to check in on his CT Chapter (Vintage Division or VD for short) brother. Well maybe this Saturday at CCCMX's OP.  I do guess it works in reverse also, so a trip to M.I.R.A.'s  will have to happen soon, I mean we all long (as in island) to see mecca.
So its on to OP at my home track then its time to frame the old girls and focus on my winter activity, Playing in the Cosmos!

Returning to normal. That's what it felt like this past weekend at the Northeast Vet Championship at the Wick 338. It was an over nighter for me and Toots, days of preparation after a Monday ride day came together Friday and after a pre travel traffic anxiety tantrum (thanks for forgiving me Toots) we had a pleasant traffic free trip throuh the city up to the Wick. We pitted with our friends The Brit, his wife lisa, My mentor Gino, and JoJo and his wife kim.
 Saturday night was about fine cider good stories and campfires. It was extra special to catch up with the Oracle (Gino), it had been about a year since we last were able to get together. Miss the conversations we have. The night was cold with temps dropping into the lower 30's, but race day turned out to be pleasantly cool and breezy. The track was perfect and the racing intense with a touch of veteran class. I had a blast on the venerable 1990 CR 125R in both the Vintage open and the open 125 classes. The benefit of this event is the who's who of the Northeast's legendary vet riders. To name them all would take up its own paragraph, so lets just say the only ones not to attend were Doug Henry due to injury and Tony lorusso  and Pat Barton.
 I'm honestly sad to see this season wind down, it feels like it never began, but there is always next season full of promise and intrigue as we pick up the pieces of 2020 and restart our moto lives.

Finally! Finally, after what had seemed to be an eternity, a race to attend. The Unadilla MX rewind to be eaxact, or as they renamed it the vintage mx regional. The latter being named due in part to a revised format because of promoter (ACR) cancellation and the fact that a majority of vintage brethren could not attend due to hot state status. Toots and I arrived on Friday afternoon as the hare-scramble had concluded and practice was underway for the grass track event. Next year I will partake in this event as the track layout had changed an was definitely much more appealing. Covid rules for parking were strict but by not having instruction as to where I could park, I got a great spot for my mate Jason and myself by the mercy of the track official. Thanks again my friend.
 Jason arrived with special guest, Unadilla mayor, living legend, team crew chief and friend Jo Jo Keller. A great  guy with an amazing sense of humor and all things moto. Lots of New England regulars showed up. Legend Jim Meenan, Jimbo from#oldmenthatusedtorace, Jeff Martell, Chris Gleebus, Johnny Deane, Brook Roberts (10x novice champion) etc.
 Saturday was a single class entry in the open 90-99 class rain was predicted and was in full mud prep, but never came. I raced the 1990 Honda CR 125R and she performed flawlessly. I raced to 4-4 score for 4th OA. Jay was Top three in his class.
 Sunday started with the word at chapel service ant some hot coffees. The 93 Honda CR 125R was the machine this day. My classes were separated by only 1 class and the start of the schedule. I raced the 125 B 90s and 50 plus disc brake B classes. the kids smoked me in the 125 class first moto. I managed to win the 50plus class moto 1 over a tenacious Fred Edmunds from NY. Got smoked by the kids again in the 2nd 125 moto and had a good crash as I lost my nose coming down a freshly watered section of the track. I was banged up a bit on my left side, too a knock to my left wrist. the bike was undamaged so I pulled it together and went to the the line for 50 plus B moto 2. Again I battled with Edmonds, both of us sending it as best we could. I managed to narrowly squeak out the victory over Edmunds in a back and forth 5 lap frenzy. The Unadilla MX rewind is the grand daddy event of the year and to take home the gold was the crowning jewel in a strange year. One event down one to go

Covid?, what covid? Unfortunately I see the effects from this type of flu first hand, but I have to say that its affect on me has been extremely minimal. Thanks to our father the Lord Jesus and the fact that I am not a social seeker needing to be seen, my life is status quo. Our fellow man has been extremely ridiculous by shutting the local tracks down (some still) thinking that moto is a large gathering of idiots waiting to break the rules, the majority of us will gladly social distance from one another as long as we get race and ride. Having said that and with racing returning and OPs in full swing, life has been good.
 Me and Toots have been hitting the local scene and preparing for the two races still on the calendar That I have been looking forward to the most. The Unadilla MX Rewind and the North east Vet Championship at the wick. Dilla is going to be amazing, but the wick is still a mystery as the have not posted the class structure yet. The Inaugural race as well as last year they had a vintage class and a 125 race so I dont see why they would leave those out, but until its posted I wont know for sure. Either way I will attend and put my old girls through their paces. So Im off to the beach with Toots this weekend then its off to the races.
