I watched about 2 min... guy is solid, but I'm not impressed with a guy going out and passing riders right and left who are at least two groups slower than he; speed differentials on track like this IMHO are dangerous and unnecessary. Ride with people going roughly the same speed and do everyone a favor.

Boring...

Do you sense me?

Do you fear me?

Do you know me?


There's no way out, only a way on.

I'd bet they were in B..only indication of I was passing in the corners, but some B groups allow that....and he should be in A. At 6:00 he does an inside pass...if he didn't get black flagged I wouldn't want to run with that organization

I didn't see anything he did unsafe from 1st 4 minutes I watched, but it will bite him one of these days...and likely another rider

Hey Greenstreak, it's z064life lazy ass

There's nothing aesthetically appealing on the new quackers to me
