The destination for the #CWRoadTrip is upon us. Just a quick run into Salt Lake City. We stop in the small town of Salinas first for some breakfast at ‘Moms’ before heading on.
We really aren’t sure what to expect, we never get to see WSBK races in person, and as we wander into the pits the noise of the machines hits us. It’s truly an amazing feeling to be so close to the race bikes, the racers, and the teams.
Getting in on Friday gives us a chance to wander around casually, as well as catch up with all of the other participants of the CWRoadTrip.
Swapping stories of rides, highs and lows we all get an appreciation for just how many excellent ways there are to get to this racetrack just outside Salt Lake City.
Moving into race day, the pace changes. Crowds of people turn up to cheer for their favorite team, rider, or manufacturer. For us, we’re torn as fans of both Marco Melandri and Max Biaggi. Either way, the sound of the motorcycles screaming down the straightaway, the antics of Chris Pfeiffer doing stunts, and the throngs of Umbrella girls make this an event we will never forget.
