Cooke Pond

Here's some vid of Seamus and I flogging the XR100 mercilessly on his pond. The amount of time and labor that went into the preparation leading up to this 15 minute session would be hard to believe. Starting with a comic episode involving a canoe and a chainsaw on a cool Autumn afternoon, followed by a couple of plowing/snowblowing sessions punctuated by stepping through the ice, breaking the plow and getting stuck in slush. ( I wish we had some of that on video) Anyway, enough of that.



Me, obviously trying to give a clinic on shorttrack. The rear tire went flat during the filming of this...


The ice was perfect, we were running the XR in 4th gear. Next year (yeah, right!) we'll build a slightly larger track.
