evidently a sprint for prizes with two laps left and Joe touched the wheel of the guy in front, i don't know his name, maybe hightop could help me with that, and went down on his right side. from where i was it looked as if he unclipped accidently during the sprint. they said he was a bit dizzy. he was up and moving around in the ambulance, according to sources. i know Joe from the road and he was always nice and i think he had a good year in '04.

it sounded like joe overlapped wheel with one of my teammate going for the illustrious 10 dollar prime. when i went by he was laying there like maybe he was knocked out. scary stuff, made my stomach knot up and i raised the white flag after that. just something about seeing a crash or being in one that makes me realize i dont make a living at this and sometimes its better to chill. lots of yelling that day also, do the knobby guys yell alot?. i was thinking about working on my bad skills and trying the dirt out.

no. i haven't heard one shout in anger. it's all about riding the bike and havin' fun at the same time. don't get me wrong, it's just as fast, maybe faster, and competetive but everyone is super nice. i just have more fun in the dirt. i don't worry about cars that much. the only exception is coach Hansen would sure like to see us on the podium so he's been pushing us harder and raises his voice once and a while!!
