After another long day of working, we all got back to the campground to collect our paychecks, drink some beer, and celebrate a job well done. Having gotten to see what it’s like to be on the other side of the track, it’s amazing how much work really goes into just watching a corner. I didn’t have much downtime during the day at all, as we had to be there whenever bikes were on track (although thanks to all the people who visited me in the brief breaks between practice sessions!), and you certainly earn that paycheck. But the experience of being part of the show, the comradery as you spend all day with your corner crew, and helping make these events happen is hard to top! And with as many of the people we were working with who had been doing this every year for a lot of years, clearly I’m not the only one who couldn’t get enough of the experience, haha. I’d definitely recommend it to anyone who loves racing!
