Mike Akatiff is not going.  I spoke with him on the phone today.

Have not heard anything about Denis.

Heard a rumor that Sam Wheeler MAY show up.

No one made any runs today from about 10am to 6pm when they let a few heavy bikes out that were not affected by the wind, Only a few made it all the way, and there were turn offs due to wind.
Tomorrow is another day!

any news from out on the salt.  Looks like there is a bit of a crosswind from the east, but not as windy as yesterday.

Fill us in on what is going on if you have heard anything.

Some water blew into the pits last night. Courses are still in great shape. They are making runs as I type

Curious about where they've set up the pits - I understand the normal positioning during Speedweek was unusable.

I am not sure. I am just going by what BMST posts on Facebook. Give me a minute to see about a map I saw the other day

Latest from BMST

Riders meeting at 8:30 - holding course action at this time - will reassess at noon

I am not sure if the hold is for wind or water.

Current wind at the airport is calm. There were thunderstorms in the area last night with .01" reported. Only way to tell about track is feet wet look see. Winds associated with the storms could have been a problem even if there was no additional rain.

The course hold this am was for water on the tracks. Racing has been called for the day. Planning to race till 4pm tomorrow since it's the last day.

Was the water there because of the wind or because of more rain -- or does anyone really know?
