Hangtown

Please post pics!!

Same date as our rally so can’t make it but always a good time.

A lot of amazing history for me there.

Watched Bob Hannah with some lighting bolts.
Glover vs Bailey last few corner shown down. The best ever!!

Barnie rocking it. RM 125 coolness.

And yeah the best of the last 15 years .... and Mud from hell

...and even a amateur appearance by yours truly. All I remember is the track kind of sucked and it was slippery as shit.

Hangtown classic is classic for a reason. A lot of moto love goes into making this race happen.

I've attended it three times. Twice when I lived close to it in Folsom and once after I moved back to Pleasanton. There are some great viewing spots along that track.

The one I remember most is the last year Eli Tomac was on Honda when he was a minute and a half ahead of the next closest rider at the end and had lapped all but four riders. He was flying further than everybody else and had the most consistent lines as well.

I always liked attending the races there.
