Ack bike is under way.  I got some video -- no tripod, though.  Still working on it.

Anyway, Ack Attack bike:

Entry speed:   Not there.  Slowing at the four mile.

Still slowing through the timed mile.  Mormon Missile has left the pits to make a run -- coming from the far end.


Everyone told to stay in position so the Mormon Missile can go quickly, Ack Attack bike is stopped and safety crew is on site just in case.

Missile will be escorted to far end.  Ack bike will be accompanied by the full crew in case it's a minor issue and they can make a run from the far end.

Actually Freud, this sort of "entertainment" is VERY difficult to obtain.

While I'm waiting, send the email with the information for Sam Wheeler, to:

willard.19@osu.edu

That's one of the guys here on the Salt, and once you confirm that the email has been sent I'll have to walk over to their pit, tell him to check his mail, and then, once he finds it, he'll print it and I can walk it over to Sam's pit.

Follow this to the video I just shot of the Ack bike leaving.  No, I haven't even seen it -- so if the quality isn't there, ooops, sorry.

The tripod won't let me swivel -- I still am handholding.

SSS,

Great job!!

I saw the video and need someone to explain the lead vehicles that change into chase vehicles very quickly.  Who is in the support vehicles and why three?  One is the push truck.  The others?

Typically what has happened at the Private meet, is mike cook is in one vehicle, he is at the start then follows the vehicle down the course, then you have the push truck being driven by Mike Ack, then maybe one support vehicle to turn the bike around with equipment.

Geo, its because Mike Cook is all about safety, three eyes are better than one.

Very good, Jon -- about what I was gonna say.  Mike Cook Jr. is usually in the little white minipickup chasing.  

Mormon Missile is ready to leave -- engine is running, driver in car, canopy closed.  Course stewards all confirm course is clear.  Winds still absent without leave.

Mike Junior will follow the Missile, Mike Cook will return to start to work with Ack folks getting ready for their run.

Mormon Missile under way, started at the 10 1/2.  Stopped already.

Some body panels have been removed, but I hear they're putting things back on and are about to run again soon.

Dick:

As soon as this run is over I'll go to OSU, get it printed, and walk over to Sam's pit.  You're Welcome.
