Ralph Hudson's New Record

The first time I attended ROMS, one of my classmates was a guy named Ralph Hudson. Over the two days we got acquainted (and he kicked all our asses in the final), and Ralph proved to be soft-spoken, interesting, friendly, and fast as hell. Ralph told me that he'd been an AMA expert road racer in the early 70's, but that he'd stopped to raise a family. He was at ROMS because he was thinking about getting back into racing - maybe vintage stuff.

Below is what he's done.

Amazing. What a beautiful stage to set that upon.

That sign looked like something out of a Bug Bunny cartoon -- you could see the silhouette of the bike in it.

Congrats to him and his team.
