Mega Mile Main Event
You'll really want to watch this - 1.25-mile, engine-killing oval - the Mega Mile at Colonial Downs.
There's a load of fannying around at the beginning, that's worth watching - engines overheating, Joe Kopp's dead engine (yes, Joe Kopp out of retirement again and made the main on a Triumph), racers playing mind games - then there's a red flag. It just reminds me how highly strung these riders are when it comes to the main. I love it.
The race itself is wild. Loads of different lines on this deep cushion track. Loads of different makes in the main too - H-D, KTM, Triumph, Kawasaki, Suzuki. G
