Gymkhana Birmingham AL Sat Oct 27th 10am-4pm
« on: October 16, 2012, 01:30:25 PM »
This will be the MAC-DADDY event, and final FULL Gymkhana event for 2012 - time to get those skills you need for the fall riding season.  Don't put it off, you know you need it, and if you don't know, you can find it if you need it and exactly HOW BAD A RIDER you really are in UNDER ONE MINUTE!

No more excuses - time is running out

Well the weather felt like Birmingham...... England. :o

That being said it was a lower turnout than expected.

We mainly had the really fast, and new riders.

The new riders did excellent! I was impressed on how fast many took to the concept.

At the end of the day, the GP8 competition got heated. I ran my personal best of 35.0 seconds.mine did not make the top 3 though.

I believe the best time was a 32.?? The completion was really fun!

It was not a big event, but it was a good one.

Sometimes it's a bit disappointing when only a few people turn up for an event, but never mind, it will grow and grow. The very biggest things come from very small beginnings. :)

Oh when I say turn out was low, I mean we only had about 40 people ride the course.

22 of those where new.

The last event was double that.

I think we can call gymkhana established in Alabama.
 :)


BTW Checking back, Ohgood had the best GP8 time of 30.1.

There where couple of riders right on his heels. 8)

Forty riders and a 30.1 GP8, yup, I think you can certainly say that you're established.  ;D
