Hey there Nathan. Man been a LONG time huh?
I finally remembered to drop back in here. Didn't see the PM reply.

I used to ride up on our 20 in bikes drooling-watching you and George, Don Geobel, Fred(occasionally) and couple of others roost around that field by the Goebels/Hannas.
I got some help from a guy in Pasadena(guess he was impressed with my BMX abilitys or something:-) and started racing a YZ 125 around 1974 or so. Then we moved up to a Husky 250 GP and I made it to a decent, consistent top 5 250 Int rider eyeing Expert then my friend/help, Jack moved back, outside of San Antonio area and got married.
I was young, no money to continue and bummed. I regret not staying in racing, but it's all long gone now. Except I do ride up here in WA. And we have some awesome, rugged terrain up here that I ride my KTM 300 XC on. I have fun, but it didn't take too long to figure out I'm not 20 y/o anymore! :-P
Good to hear from you. I wished I could make it down for the reunion again. Can't justify it this yr.
Made one a couple yrs ago, saw all the old H&H Music bunch except Robert Tuggle. Was really neat.
Take care!
Roger

Rio was awesome and really brought back a lot of old memories....the Vintage bikes (and riders) were really cool. The track looks very similar to how I remember it back in the '70's, and I remember how much fun (and challenging) the track can be to endurance. EVO looks like a great format for local racers that are "vintage" also....good clean fun!

My son (13) is now bugging his mom to let him ride/race...I hope to come out and watch some more of the local races---would like to see some of the local pro talent race. What's coming up next?

A lot has changed, but Rio lives on!

Nathan, I brought my '02 RM250 2t with me to the Rio reunion back in '07.
After the fun and chit chat, I unloaded my Suzook, put my gear on and rode the track one last time for old times sake. I started to not ride, because it was about to rain, got lazy,etc...but I told myself, "no!, you'll be sorry you didn't ride this track one last time". It was really cool. The track had been changed up a bit, and I didn't remember some turns, sections being like they were laid out, but it was something I'll never forget. After I was done...I loaded up and stared at the place before driving off...I got a bit teary eyed.
Only something very special will do that to 50 something y/o man. I'll never forget my motocross memories in So TX. The only thing that would've been better...is to have ridden my 75 Husky CR250GP that I used to race back in the day!
