Live from San diego... Here are some shots of the track. As you will see it's not nearly as technical as Anaheim was.

These whoops looked tough! Natalie went through them full throttle and never skipped a beat! Others had a little more problem.

01-22-2005, 03:02 PM
Heres a shot of the triple-triple.. All you could do is double-single or single-double.

01-22-2005, 03:09 PM
This is a raised corner with a lip on the inside line. All the top riders from Anaheim are and a few local riders. Although today there were only 31 entries. Some of the riders from last week went to the WORC's race in Phoenix today....

This is also where he would finish in the 2nd heat.

WestCoast Editor
01-23-2005, 07:00 PM

01-23-2005, 07:02 PM

Natalie would get the holeshot, but guess who came out of the corner first?

WestCoast Editor
01-23-2005, 07:28 PM

WestCoast Editor

Jones running in 4th won't hold this position very long.

WestCoast Editor
01-23-2005, 07:48 PM
McClure running middle of the pack is holding on to the number 10 spot.

WestCoast Editor
01-23-2005, 07:51 PM
Going into the double-single that everyone is now tripleing, Schell noses into the landing and hurts his ankle. He would call it a night after this.

WestCoast Editor

A close race here for the 3rd spot.

WestCoast Editor
01-23-2005, 07:56 PM
Nelson who's bike died at the start, is being lapped by Natalie.

WestCoast Editor
01-23-2005, 07:58 PM
Looks like a little bit of trouble for Bartuzzi.

WestCoast Editor
01-23-2005, 08:00 PM
A broken swing arm would end his night. Wonder if this is covered under warranty?

WestCoast Editor
01-23-2005, 08:01 PM
McClure and Pacheco getting a little too close here.

WestCoast Editor
01-23-2005, 08:03 PM

Yes he did, but his bike stalled on the start of the main event, and later on he crashed. Overall he did good in the heats / qualifying, but had bad luck in the main.
