Is this near the location of the old park? I was just a little guy on my 80 puttin around the old joint tryin not to get run down by a pack of Bultacos & Maicos the last time I was there with my grandfather. Didn't the old place close in 78' or 79'?

I can't wait! I started hearing rumors about this around a year ago. I only live about 10 minutes from there. I really like Elsinore and Comp Park but the 45 minute drive there twice a week sucks.

Hey Ron, why don't you come up for a ride this weekend? I think it's going to be a little cooler than it has been lately.

The new Saddleback track is near the old one, which closed in '84. It will open 9-4-01, for Tuesday and Thursday practice. No weekend riding yet.

That is great news. Brian and Josh will really appreciate that. Maybe miracles can happen! :)

I have to admit that the last mx track I was on was Saddleback in the early 80's. That was back when a double was a big deal. Things have changed a little. This has sparked a need to give mx a try again. Way cool! :)

Otba - I am on vacation for two weeks starting this weekend. Headed out of state for some serious r&r and re-evaluation of things. When I get back it will be time to train again (have to get my sorry a$$ in shape) and I will be looking forward to riding with you and Dan a lot in the near future. Thanks for the invite but I gotta take a raincheck bro.

Paul, I'll make sure they know about this. :D
