The first week end of every October certain motivated individuals from planet Earth gather in a small place near the town of Deweese, Nebraska to do battle. Battle on vintage mini bikes. This race event, started in 1999, is the product of promoter Fred Cuba's fertile mind.
Competitors attend from as far away California, Kansas, Iowa, Minnesota, Missouri and Colorado. I started attending in 2007 and was badly thumped and went away with a third and a fourth. I spent a whole year scheming how I would do better but came away with a third and a fifth.
There are some very excellent riders who attend Fred's affair. And at 66 I'm not as good as those young bucks. But damn-there's next year!
