Here is a pic of young Job Wylie ( yes his name is Job) from Prince George, who just bought the Evo 200 from us - I could see that the lad had some talent when he tried it out in our back yard - Hopefully we will see him at some events. - We chatted about McLeese Lake and the Trials we helped those guys host a few years ago.

So now we have a Fire just North of our place - near the Mill - not much news coming out, but the smoke is pretty thick - It’s on “Our” side of the hiway and I saw that Silver Star posted a bit of news to keep folk updated. talk about scary times -   Hard to get to sleep when you don’t know what’s happening up the road.

Then of course we have the war of words between Trump & the North Korean - I think both should be taken into a small room and shown the results of nuclear war - or any war.


Practice news from the Moto GP in Austria.

Hector Barbera (Reale Avintia Racing) took to the top late on in FP1 after dueling for P1 throughout the session, ending up only 0.088 ahead of Andrea Dovizioso (Ducati Team) after the number 4 had his fastest lap cancelled for exceeding track limits. Dani Pedrosa (Repsol Honda Team) also struck late to complete the top three.
With the weather in doubt, the top ten could well prove decisive for entry to Q2 on Saturday:
1. Hector Barbera - (Reale Avintia Racing) - 1:24.631
2. Andrea Dovizioso (Ducati Team) - +0.088
3. Dani Pedrosa (Repsol Honda Team) - +0.113
4. Maverick Viñales (Movistar Yamaha MotoGP) - +0.121
5. Marc Marquez (Repsol Honda Team) - +0.250
6. Johann Zarco - (Monster Yamaha Tech 3) - +0.264
7. Danilo Petrucci - (Octo Pramac Racing) - +0.341
8. Scott Redding - (Octo Pramac Racing) - +0.377
9. Jorge Lorenzo - (Dcuati Team) - +0.407
10. Cal Crutchlow - (LCR Honda) - +0.598============================================>

I guess a good caption for this pic would be “We’ve come a long way”
