James D King- Captains Log - start date 22-01-17.
( well I used to watch Star Trek as a kid!!)
Well, what can I say: You riders today just blew me away with the way you rode a very demanding track. It was awesome to watch and after all my uncertainty as whether to run or not (Thank Sadie, she made me run it) I was glad we ran, it put a smile on my face (unusual!!)
Every rider first to last rode fantastically without moaning and groaning, just getting on with the racing. Thank you very much as it makes it all worthwhile.
As usual the SMX team made it all happen for you and deserve a huge applause (thank you).
A huge thank you also to Andrew Syson of Click 466 for taking some spectacular pictures of the day. Please visit his site & treat yourself to a photo or two.
We will try to run at Horsham this coming Sunday if the weather is favourable. We will post on here & the friends of southern motocross Facebook page the condition of the track as soon as we can.
If you haven't been to Horsham before it's pretty much an all weather track & dries out quickly. Track comprises of hills, sensible jumps & drop offs; all designed by Tony Ford for beginners, experts & everyone in between.
Again thank you all & I will keep you all up to date with what we're doing with tracks, start gates, toilets etc to the point that you will probably be sick of me even before the weekend!!!!!!
It will be a gradual process.....
See you Sunday.
