Written June 17th, 2002
Well, here it is: I woke up at 2:00am and never got back to sleep, so I think I was sleep racing. Light to moderate rain ALL day. 1st 40+ moto...spun the wheel violently on the wet asphalt start...7th into the first turn. A guy in front of me goes down and I hit him, knocking me down in the cold, wet, sand. Then I got passed by the pack, started my bike, got so roosted, I had to pull a tear off, but instead of pulling 1, I pulled all 4 of them all at once and not even all the way off-they were flapping in my face for about 1/2 a lap!
I got all the way to 2nd place and couldn't see a thing through the goggles and was going over berms, getting cross rutted, overall a complete mess! I couldn't take my googles off because I wear contacts, so I was riding blind. I crashed on the last lap and got passed by 2 of the slowest guys in my class. Finished 6th.
2nd moto: Spin on the start again (I am terrible in wet conditions), get up to 5th by the first turn, start passing guys down the straight after the start, get T-boned in the 3rd turn and go down, get up and going and up to 4th or 5th again, then I got cross rutted and fall over in the sand, up again and on a mission to pass as many guys as I can...get whipped sidewards over a downhill mound and highside tossing me to the ground for the 5th time of the day. Got up, tired and abused, but managed to make it to a 7th.
I didn't even bother to check the final results, but I assume I got a 7th overall.
BAD DAY...HATE RAIN, BUT SAND IS MY REAL ENEMY!
