Ink Shack 8: Let’s Go Racing

Misspent Summers Jon gregory

In his weekly Ink Shack post, Jon Gregory muses on everything two wheels and then creates a limited edition artwork and product, available until the next week only. Check out Jon’s Analog zine too — it’s free to download.

LET’S GO RACING
Words and artwork: Jon Gregory
 
With the news rolling in that we may still get to witness a pretty packed downhill race season this week, I got pretty excited.
 
The double-header format (something to do with trains apparently) will be a welcome factor and another part of the mix for the racers to deal with. Two high drama race weekends rolled into one! Wow!
 
There’s nothing quite like racing in terms of the buzz for me. The spectacle of the world’s best bike handlers all coming together to battle it out at speeds most of us can only dream of. The nerves, the anxieties, the pressures, the calculation, the whole energy surrounding a race is infectious and addictive.
 
Each and every race is unique and unpredictable. I can’t wait to witness the drama when it all kicks off again.
 
In reality, there is still a huge great question mark looming over the series. But I’m staying positive… Let’s go racing!
