Racing is hard. On Thursday, it rained, and the team worked to finish important details. When practice started that afternoon, it was clear that the 10R needed a lot of suspension development. The team worked through changes, and Bostrom qualified eighth for the AMA Pro American SuperBike races. It had been a mad rush of going out, evaluating a change, coming in, sitting through a shock change, a fork spring change, a preload change. The weather was cold, and tires work poorly in the cold. But eighth was not bad for a newly designed bike and a new program.
