Hi,
I just found this website while being nostalgic...
I raced MX back in the late '60's through
'75....Cloverfield, Rio Bravo, Fairbanks, Lake Whitney, Chappel Hill and a few others....and was wondering what happened to Rio Bravo and all the old racers.....we were all kids, skinny with long hair back then...a lot has changed!

Kinda cool to see Vintage and nostalgia racing is going on....anything like that here in Houston?

God bless 'ya all!
Nathan

Rio was recently purchased by Danny Erdeljack (sp?) and is going through a total restoration. www.riobravomx.org. Also, to keep up with the Sough Texas MX scene check out oldschoolmxers.com and houstonmotocross.com. We've held old school reunions at Rio for the past 4-5 years and the next one is in late February.

Nathan, I also raced during those days,and still ride today. I live in Friendswood,and know all of the good spots around here. I am also involved in the off-road scene as well. You should try some of that out.
Rio is having a race this weekend. Unfortunately,i cannot attend, but have been out to the track recently. It is awsome!
See the STORM forum.

Thanks VintageMikey!
I am going to try and make it out to Rio next month....looking forward to seeing the track again, maybe even see some old friends, and watching the vintage classes run.

Yes, that is me....I sent a reply to the PM, but not sure if you received it.
Where did all the guys end up from the early '70's?

Is this Nathaniel Vaughn that lived in Seabrook in the 4th and 5th grades, then moved to Alvin for a while? Used to ride a 72 or 73 XR-75?
