Moto with Very Little Knitting

This past week I fell right off the face of the Earth right into the racing scene. We made our way to the racetrack Friday morning, hung out with friends, wrenched a bit on the bikes and I even managed to get a few stitches knit. Then Saturday it was all business. Usually Kyle & I both work flags and corners but since he was racing this weekend I worked without him. Working on the track allows me to get close enough to take cool photos like this one of him coming around the 10th and last turn of the 3.1. mile track.

Here's my Saturday Sky entry for this week. It was cloudy but dry and warm.

Saturday Sky at BIR

On Sunday Kyle participated in a 5 hour endurance race with 2 of his friends, Joe & Pat. I think this is his game face. Today when we were looking at the photos from the weekend he said he didn't remember me taking this, I guess he had a few other things on his mind.

Game Face

The beginning of the endurance race just off the starting grids. No, we aren't allowed to stand at the wall for the race, only for the start and last lap. Only two timing people per team are allowed to stand there for the entire race, the bikes come by at crazy speeds.

And They're Off

My friend Amy telling Kyle (the blur on the right) to pit the next time around. She kept track of the laps and times. He was probably going 145 mph here, no wonder he had a game plan.

Pit Now!

Joe burned up the rest of the rear tire when the race was complete. And now racing is over for 2006. We had a great season and can't wait to go back next summer.
