Were your 2 bikes the ones the announcer had moved? grn (like they were in the way, pfffft) Ya, other then the weather it was pretty good time. And one for us jetboaters with the CJ boat taking the overall win!!
yeah they asked us to move them after they had been setting there for several hours !!! So what boat was the overalll ??? we left just after the two boats did the sprint . . . you say it was one of the jets ?? Im guessing the red one ??? Or was it the white one that spun out and almost fell under the water ??? That was weird . . . didnt the white one have an aluminum block
Yes and yes. The red jet from Burley beat that blue v-drive twice. Seemed the v-drive was stalling out of the hole whole pretty bad and wasn't able to catch up.
I was standing right along the shore where the boat spun out. Should have seen the size of his eyes. lol
