2011 racing summary This year I entered 41, and started 39, final races over 13 events at 13 different venues, on 7 different bikes owned by 5 different people. I had six DNFs, four of which were mechanical, one crash, and one mechanical/crash. I finish 1st fourteen times, 2nd eleven times, 3rd five times, and 6th five times. I crashed five times, twice in races, three times in practice. Luckily, I didn't get hurt beyond minor bruising, but one can't count on that. Five crashes is the most I've crashed in a year in the last decade and is twice my average. Let's hope it's just an anomaly. I'm still very much enjoying the racing and look forward to a similar program next year.
