Looking at the championship results for the Red Max Thunderbike 2009 series, I see that not only did I manage to fall off on track quite a bit, but also I’ve fallen off of the results table too. I thought it was bad enough not getting any points whatsoever all year, but managing to fall off a virtual table has to be the low point even for a halfwit like me.
Last year I managed to get A point (I still haven’t received it, by the way) but this year? didley squat, zilch, nothing. So has my racing been pointless? I suppose, but I’ve had a great time with great friends, perhaps not the sort of friends I’d invite home, especially since I decorated, but friends nonetheless. No hope of sponsorship now, even though my leathers have already had, ‘Stu Pidcock Racing’, sewn onto them, (thanks Mum.)
What does next year hold then? Probably more falling off I expect. I usually like to set my targets and expectations quite low, it’s philosophy that has worked well throughout my life, but it’s no good for racing, so I’ve decided to go with blind optimism and a re-brand. In corporate land this is all the rage, so why not.
So here’s to 2010. I shall be back, re-built, re-wired and ready for action.
Number 75 (number 99 is soooo last season, dharling)
