My friend Stu Carter just sent me a link to a video of the 2008 Moto Giro America which took place in Central California, starting and ending in Monterey and based three days in Paso Robles. Seeing the video brought back lots of good memories, as it was a fabulous event. There was a great bunch of riders on some superb bikes and excellent roads, route sheets, accommodations and food. The USCRA Moto Giro crew did the timing and scoring. I initially roomed with Frank Scurria, a legendary racer from the '60s. He had a very serious accident on the second day and was airlifted out, but has since recovered completlely. Unfortunately, the event was a money loser and so never happened again.
