There are some videos out there as well, a bar-cam video from Tanner Browne here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=v0MimmAR0Co&feature=youtu.be

and a video of a crash in the Pro race on Sunday in Crystal City here: https://vimeo.com/68001999
I hated watching this video. Hopefully it sparks some discussion on 1) why were there no cones down the centerline if it’s two-way racing traffic 2) Why is there a car as a lead moto ref on a course that has a tight turnaround and travels on the aforementioned two-way course with no cones and 3) can anybody think before they shout “stay left!” over and over when they really need to say “stay right!”

As always, if you know of other picture galleries or videos send them my way to info at rouleurville dot com.

UPDATE:
