Live from Vegas...
Morning qualifying has just finished. The light inside is a problem for my limited photographic abilities, but here are some snaps from this morning. The bikes here are incredible. I've spotted about ten riders I think I could beat out of the 140 entries. There are pros, amateurs and vintage. And it's encouraging to see how closely related a British short track race is, in the way it's run, to one of Gene Romero's WCFTS events. And virtually everyone knows about our racing in the UK. It makes me proud. And most of it's down to Boastie and Jackie's hard work and massive investment in time and money. I need to buy them a drink. The pits is closed for four hours now. I'm going to try get some food that costs more than $2.99 and get ready for this evening's heats. By the way, Englanders, it's a nice 20-odd- degrees here. GI
