The 2000 season so far has been
learning experiences. Of course we are always learning
but we have had to learn big hard lessons this year. I
guess the biggest things we have learned is how to react
under pressure. The first race of the season, Rick
crashed his new bike with only 500 miles on it. The
second race, Rick thought his bike was repaired, BUT,
(lesson No. 1), the bike just doesn't want to go
straight! The second race was Eric's first race. Eric had
to learn quick
The 3rd race yet another crash for
Rick. Rick repaired the bike at the track (that was an
unexpected 300 dollar bill!) but he came back and
finished 7th. in the superstock race and 8th in a class
he had never raced prior. (superbike)
