Racing Report From The 2011 Battle Of The Bay E-mail
Written by Scott Carde   
Aside from the wind burn and chilled knees I had a great time. The riders were stoked and did their best. Many riders told me it was like hitting a brick wall running into the wind as they turned on to the second and fourth straights but they rode through it the best they could. USA BMX had plenty of volunteers and they pulled off a great inaugural event. The track was in top condition and we had very few wrecks. We will need our usual amount of volunteers to run our race this weekend so please respond to Lisa’s call for volunteers when she sends it out this week.
