This was the year of great expectations...
Newly painted bodywork! New thinner and lighter tail section! The fueler's first time on the salt!
Let's do this!
... and then it rained for 5 solid days.
The World Finals were cancelled, and everyone had to turn around and drive straight back home.
Well at least the bikes didn't have to get de-salted... a slightly lame consolation, but we'll take what we can get.
