Rest Day — Junction City, Kansas
Friday, September 12, 2014 — Junction City, Kansas
Rest Day — We find ourselves in Junction City, Kansas with a day to collectively catch our breath. It is unusually cold right now and wrenching outside makes for a lot of cold fingers. For those who are not wrenching, laundry is in order. I am not sure why they called it “rest day” on the schedule, because honestly many riders found themselves wrenching or testing their rides.
The big talk are the standings. The race standings are dependent not just on how many successful miles you have ridden, but also on the age of your bike and the engine size. Engine size determines what class you are in. 700cc and under is Class I, 700-1000cc is Class II, and over a 1000cc is Class III.
Currently Team Vino standings are as follows:
Dean Bordigioni #11 — 10th place (completed all stages, no breakdowns, Class II)
Scott Jacobs #93 — 12th place (completed all stages, no breakdowns, class II)
Robert Gustavsson #76 — 58th place (dropped several rankings when he broke down in stage 7 with a coil problem. He is class III with a larger engine.)
Sharon Jacobs #81 — 78th place (she was down 2-1/2 days with scorched pistons and she is also in Class III)
