[Serialkiller] nice track, didn't race there but did watch the national there.
AVOCADO> Very dumb.
AVOCADO> I kicked ass at that national.
[Bunchy] Track used to be better - now it's just a bunch of table tops - they took
- out all the good jumps
[BMXmania] In the parking lot or on the track
[Bunchy] More of a power track
AVOCADO> I hate that jump after the 2nd turn. What is it anyway?
[Bunchy] Not good for Colin
[Bunchy] It's supposed to be the "MONSTERS"!!
AVOCADO> Gotta bulk him up with creatine, Met--Rx, and heavy weights!! (Just

[Bunchy] It used to be a big set of doubles - was actually nice a couple of years
- ago
AVOCADO> Yeah, but is it a double or a table?
[Bunchy] Yeah - all 52 lbs of him!!
[Bunchy] LOL!!  Used to be a double but now it's a table with 2 bumps LOL
AVOCADO> yeah, it's kinda stupid.

[Bunchy] He felt bad for Colin because he fell through the bleachers!  You know -
