I don't have the video made yet, however I wanted to do an update.
My friend who was going to race with me this weekend had to work last minute. So instead of going to that race, I decided to the last race of the Hillbilly GP series. That means I did all but 1 race in the entire winter series this year. :thumbsup:
How was the race?
Well not good.... The course chewed me up and spit me out all battered and sore. I had a mistake in the first lap that cost me 10+ minutes, the rest of the race was completed at a slow to moderate pace. Due to conditions and course setup I did not feel comfortable and it shows. It was just an off day for me. But hey a bad day of racing is still better than anything else, except a good day of racing
So the results for the race are:
10th place out of 14 riders. 7 of which rode ONLY this race in the entire HBGP season. I suspect they were probably preparing for the upcoming Summer races. I got GOpro footage of all but the last half of my last lap. So there will be an excellent commentary video to watch when I make it.
How about for the season:
I came in 6th place Overall out of 53 riders who entered at least one race. There were 31 riders who only rode 1 round of the series, and 6 riders who only raced 2 rounds of the series. The rest I would consider series competitors. So that leaves 16 riders who rode competitively. I got 6th out of 16. Not too bad for my first ever competitive racing series.

What's next for Barkbuster Racing?
The next race will be a special race... April 4th is the "Offroad Cup" it is a single race put on anually and it pits racing series' across the country together to determine which series is the most hardcore. It is a 9 hour Harescramble race where you race on a team of 3 riders. 3 riders, 9 hours, the only rule for subbing in riders/bikes is that if a rider/bike start a lap, that rider/bike has to finish that lap. Everything else is up to interpretation. We will be representing the Hillbilly GP series at the Cup. I have myself, my buddy Lance, and Weston(he is the HBGP C-Class overall champion). Weston will be our team anchor and Lance and I will just try not to screw up too bad lol...
I will post a video as soon as I make it.
