I had the fastest bike on the track. All my buddies knew it too. I had it tricked out. (White YZ250)
And I DID get the holeshot. Would have been embarrassing not to, frankly.
I think I led for about 4 laps.
As I tired in the later laps, one by one the 14 year old invincibles (I was one earlier?) passed me. IN THE AIR!
Rolled into the pits. Didn't even try to set the bike on its stand. Collapsed on the ground trying to get oxygen. The wife got on the ground and removed my helmet. Poured water on my head. It steamed.
Sweetheart nurse that she was, asked "are you ok baby?"
I looked up into her eyes and responded "I think I'm done"
And that was that. 13 year passion ended.
Man I LOVE that woman. (come to think about it)
