Tuesday afternoon and evening

A lot of school children came to watch all the bikes, ask for autographs and sit in the bikes. Busy but nice. A group of students from Reno was also there. We had lunch in the Civic Center as well. After we had some rest we set out for the track again for the speed runs. This evening we had three heats, Jan-Marcel was the first rider in the second heat. A lot of wind tonight across the track. So no legal wind, but Jan-Marcel managed to reach 64.7 mph.

To our great relief the Chinese restaurant was open for business tonight. We got a more than decent meal in good company.
