Mike, NIce post and great pictures. That's a great shot of you on the TM125. Also looks like you weren't a big fan of gloves...must have big time calluses. You were doing well in the expert classes in 1977. What kind of bikes were you riding then?

thanks Did you ever go to any races in El Paso (I know, long way away from Humble)? i raced at a track called Borderland.

Glen, I saw a picture of you later in the season at the 1976 Houston race with you on a Yamaha without water cooling and with stock forks (with canisters on top). You finished in top 10 that day. Is this correct and if so, why did you get rid of water ... more »

The name "Star Track" was selected by vote of the Southwest Dirt Riders Association in the late winter/early spring of 1977. The president of the Southwest Dirt Riders Association was Mr. LaPointe and he organized the races. His son was a fast rider.

Nice. Sue is riding newer bike than yours. I'm trying to figure out where the start is in the picture above. It used to be at the base of Suicide hill. But it looks different.

thanks for the nice pictures. Keep them coming! I missed seeing Sue Fish race. I had already moved to Georgia.

I've got a CRF230 with electric start and a honda 4x4 rancher for trail riding. The CRF230 (see my avitar) is an old man's bike, but fun. I'm mostly a spectator now. Watch hare scrambles and supercross. I'm looking forward to seeing the Atlanta Supercross ... more »

Thanks for posting tt80500! I have nothing but great memories of Borderland. You and your friend got good jumps with your YZX's. Cool radial head on your engine. Pipe looks stock. Did you do anything to the porting or carb? 10/10/76... I was 16 and waiting ... more »

Steve Wise, El Paso 1976. It was an epiphany. He made it look so easy.

Added reply in a thread Anybody in here ever won at Mammoth? 11/16/2011 12:14 AM

Only time I went to Mammoth was for skiing trip in 1987. I could only imagine what racing there in the summer would be like. The altitude had to be a major factor and I bet you would have to be in great shape to win there. I always enjoyed the Mammoth ... more »

That is awesome! Non of my business, but did you have the transplant at UCSF? I was involved with the kidney transplant program there about 20 years ago. One of the best in the nation.
