Didn't go to any party, but had a great time watching timed practices. Van Martin had a good session, and made it into the night show. In the lcq, he was about 5th on the start, and got caught behind some traffic and fell back a few spots. He managed to pass one rider back, but the whoop section got his front end, and sent him off the track. The whoops were cupped and rutted. I watched him triple 2 sections that most riders were leaving alone.
We had our 2 year old grandson for the event too. He stood still and focused for all the heats and lcq's, with his dirt bike in hand, then he got restless, and his mom and dad took him home. He was a trooper.
The 2 main events had me on the edge of my seat until the checker, with Anderson and Plessinger making the charge to the top step. Roczen road very well, and seemed to be riding calm, but fast. The crash may have him seeing things from the bigger picture aspect.
Great day of fun with family and friends. We stayed at a motel about a half a mile down the street. I think we walked there and back 3 times. It was a nice walk on a crisp day. Don't know the exact number in attendance, but there were quite a few spectators there. Hopefully Sx will be back next year.
Where there is to much, something is missing.
