Hey Everyone,  I wanted to post this sooner, but I had to fly out for business the week after CMP.  I'm back now and catching up.

I had a great time at CMP with PRE, everyone was welcoming and friendly and I enjoyed meeting those I had the opportunity to meet with.

The overall experience was great and I'm glad I had a chance to finally get out on the track with some great people.  The control riders did a great job of showing me around the track and alerting me of slower riders.  Riding with Novice group, I feel like I got a pretty good pace towards the end of my first session, after that I got more more comfortable on that track.  I still need to work on Turn 1 and 11, but I'm confident I can improve there in the future.

Some comments on CMP:
1.  Not a fan of the sandy pit area, I have some plywood now for putting my bike up stands, but is there another solution to this?
2.  Bathroom / Showers could use a refresh
3.  The track is fast and technical, nothing like others Ive ridden in the past.  Has a nice flow to it.
4.  The coarse surface made things interesting, if they re-pave it, its going to be amazing.

A shout out to the emergency crews and track marshals, they did a great job of keeping everyone safe and responding to accidents.  By the way, how is everyone recovering from those accidents?  I hope our friend who went on a chopper ride is doing okay.

Overall I had a great time and I can't wait to ride CMP and with PRE again.

Going to look at my schedule and see if I can make it to VIR this month.

Thanks again everyone, awesome times!

Good meeting you at CMP Andrew and glad to hear you had a great time.

We've all heard the rumors about the CMP repave but even if they don't do it the place is a blast to ride! Regarding the sandy pit area - the plywood you now have will work well or you could try putting an RV mat (or similar) under your tent. Another idea would be to spring for a garage space - perhaps splitting it with someone (or a few people) - which works out well.

Hope you've got VIR on your calendar for next week. Last time for PRE to be at VIR for the season and it should be a good time!

Andrew that would be me that went on the chopper tour on northern Columbia.  Trust me it is not worth the $55,000 (yes that's 55 thousand $) entry fee.  None-the-less, I am recovering, and have started a thread here: http://www.preforum.net/index.php?topic=3679.0 for anybody that know anything about my crash.  My first real memory is from about day 7 in the ICU.

By the way, hope you where able to use those tires
