I picked up a new Gopro chin mount. I like the lower view when I have my body position normal in the vid.

There was only 16 squadrons of RAF fighters that used 100 octane during the BoB.
The Fw190A could not fly with the outer cannon removed.
There was no Fw190A-8s flying with the JGs in 1945.

It is indeed. The motocross track is just to the left of the main entrance.

Yes seen that. Do you do any trail riding there or just MX?

I do trail ride there...trail options are somewhat limiting with only 3 main trails that off shoot into other trails. It's still a good time though...after a couple trail riding trips, you feel like you need a bigger playground. Hollister Hills is my favorite trail riding place, much bigger playground!

Tried out my new chin mount with the "Superview" POV...looks good...until I upload it to Youtube...now it's pixely crap...lol. Long vid but a couple laps gives you an idea of the track. Enjoyed the layout a lot!

I prefer the narrower pov as I stated in the comments of the other vid, but do whichever one you like.
Track looked like a good practice track to build endurance, nothing too technical and you can go wide open as much as you dare to hehe.
Pay no attention to the troll from the comments, as you said he probably has you confused with someone else or he's just a tool lol.
You were doing just fine with holding your line, the track is wide enough and there are plenty of lines to choose. Anyone that can't pass is just slow. smile

I really appreciate that Fracture...I needed to hear that. I was feeling pretty good today about the 4 sessions I did yesterday until I read that comment and it really bummed me out. I checked my other vids and they're just like the one I put up...I'm jumping straight. I respect my peers in motocross...but I think this guys is confusing me with someone else.
I will leave his comment up for a bit if he wants to respond...but I plan on removing it.

Thanks brother!

I had some issues at the end of moto 2...almost passed out (possible heat exhaustion?) Clips from the 4 moto weekend:

Congratz.

Love the aggression after the spill, "NEED MOAR RAGE" lol.

As for your health issue while riding, my thoughts as someone who has had heat stroke before as well as passing out twice, and being knocked out a few times.

If it was heat exhuastion you'd have been done for the day.

Remember to breathe, sometimes when riders tense up they hold their breath and forget to breathe, since it continued even when you let up a bit in the following motos that's probably not the issue.

You may need to get your blood pressure checked out with your doctor as that seems like the most likely culprit.

***NOT A DOCTOR*** Just my concerned opinion based on my own experiences. (I have high blood pressure that is controlled with medication)

Thanks for sharing the vids, and good luck with the rest of the season.

I think you called it right!

I do have high blood pressure...but I don't take my medication a day or two before the race because the kind I take is a diuretic...just makes me have to pee at the start gate AND it's notorious for causing dehydration. But when I was diagnosed and first started taking it...it took 3 weeks to have an affect...it's a build up. Missing a day or 2 didn't seem like it would revert me back so quick since it took 3 weeks to take affect.

I'm not a doctor...but I did stay at a Holiday Inn last night! Thanks for posting your insight...you might be correct.

I used to think that too about the missing a day or two not being an issue, but your blood pressure will go up if you miss a day.

If you don't do anything physical you won't notice the rise in BP but it will rise. (remember it's called the silent killer because symptoms go largely unnoticed)

Motocross will raise your BP anyway, so when you combine that with the uptick from missing meds and you're playing with fire so to speak.

I take a diuretic as well, and know it can be a hassle to have to pee so often. The good thing is that once the race starts your adrenaline will make you forget that you have to pee if your timing gets off. lol


Be glad you're not doing 30 min motos. smile

Everything you're saying is spot on.

I'm glad that I know what it was...if I take my medicine like I'm supposed too I should be fine. It's a much easier problem to fix than having heat exhaustion IMO.

You're right...when I have to pee when I'm locked in the gate...after it drops you forget all about it. About an hour after the moto it's "that's right...I have to pee" lol. So much of it is psychological.

I really appreciate your help!

You don't have take a medical test?

I know in boat racing the driver has to pass a medical before being allowed to race. It is good for the season for all the HRL classes except for GP who have to have a minor test (BP and heart rate) before each race weekend. It is a pilot grade test.

This full medical test goes back to at least the mid '70s when I raced boats.


There was only 16 squadrons of RAF fighters that used 100 octane during the BoB.
The Fw190A could not fly with the outer cannon removed.
There was no Fw190A-8s flying with the JGs in 1945.

No medical test in this club.

Keep in mind that this club is the "Over the Hill Gang". There are classes all the way up to 65 years old.

Racing boats I'm sure is a high speed affair...in motocross we rarely hit 40 mph.
