It is straight addicting and fun as hell. Gotta do something up here when the weather turns crappy.

Holy Crap that is awesome, is that in Whidbey? I usually just ride in the winter up until it snows then I fire up the grocery getter.

Re: Staying Sharp in Winter

It is in Mt Vernon. I usually ride through the winter too, but many of the people that do this do the track in the summer so it is a way to keep up the skills through the winter.

Re: Staying Sharp in Winter

Not sure, what the buy in is this year or if there are slots open. I will have to check. I have only been able to go once because I am still getting over a busted leg.

I try to ride year round but the weather doesn't always cooperate and no trackdays here until at least March so another way for those of us who have winter to ride.
