Race number two of the NIMBA series gets underway this Sunday at TK Lawless in Vandalia, MI. After a long weekend everyone should be rested and ready to race against the clock and their friends. The weather looks a little sketchy this week clearing up just in time for the race on Sunday. TK is our only Michigan venue and tends to bring in more people, more racers and more fun for everyone.
UPDATE – Looking good for a race today. Heading up to TK in a few minutes. Unless you hear otherwise we are good to go for today.
This Saturday, 5-25-13, is the last workday of the spring for Bonneyville Mill. Help us finish off the South Farm loops this spring. The redline is almost there. We are working out of the Briar Patch parking lot, from 9AM to 1 PM. Looks like cool weather for this Saturday, I suggest long pants and long sleeve shirts. Lets end the spring with a big finish. If you live in one of the eastern counties and have not been to Bonneyville come out on Saturday. If you have helped build Bonneyville this spring, come out one last time and see how far we can take it.. Bring your bikes for some test riding afterwards.
