There's a bit of an independent batch of heavier purse races over the next couple of months. Not $50k, but decent privateer take homes. The $25k Texas Pro Challenge on Oct 5-6 at Swan usually attracts a huge gate in both pro classes and has, in the past, ... more »

Lappers are part of the challenge. You want to run up front? You know you're going to deal with traffic. I scream 'get out of the way!' at the TV just like the rest of you. But it's part of the skill set to manage the race.

Safety policies, by their nature, must be geared to protect the least common denominator. In this case, the slowest, smallest, most inexperienced riders. It is really irrelevant if there are some in the category that are as skilled as others in a superior ... more »

That seems to me like saying "I know this fast as hell dude that has ridden for years without a helmet. He's still fine." My opinion is when you're setting safety policy to apply to a public facility the law of the lowest common denominator has to apply. ... more »
