Can you email me the full-size version of this one? And the 2nd crash picture in the sequence (the one you can see me tumbling)?

I like that a lot. Thanks, Dan!

It would be nice to have an air fence in turn 9 where they have the tire walls. There are enough people sliding down the hill to warrant that. Not sure if that helps someone sliding at 100mph, but maybe there's a better solution.

I noticed a stack of bikes piled behind the tires there waiting a tow. That seems to be the spot.

When the ambulance came rolling up to the pit I was saying, "Don't stop here, don't stop here..." And then it stopped. It was a relief to see the doors open up and have you sitting up with a smile on your face. I was counting your position when I saw you coming into the chicane and saw the dust fly. It happened really fast. Orange helmet there/Orange helmet not there. Glad you're ok. Bummed about the timing and how this affects your AMA aspirations. I was really looking forward to being a part of that with you.

Adrian, it sucks to have a mechanicals like that. You wait all day and then have it crap out on ya again. Good on you for being patient and sticking with it. You'll get some good luck coming your way soon.

Dan, a hoot watching you ride as always. I love your attitude about the whole thing. I only got to watch one of your races, but I had a good excuse for missing it (see above.) Looking forward to watching your progression through the season. 2nd place ain't a bad way to start.

The crew we have out there these days at the local races is really fun. Dan, your dad is awesome. I really like hanging out with him and his presence in the pits. Tell your mom to make more appearances, too. I like the family aspect of this thing, and I'm not just talking about the Luceros. I don't have any of that close to me, so this is about as good as it gets--and it's pretty good.

Dan, Congrats on kicking ass.

No longer hanging out here, sorry.

Steve, glad you're OK. Huge bummer's like this can hang in your head and that sucks.
Fix your bike and ride it, that'll do it. Jump back on the horse, right?
