Blue, I'm not sure if he works there as he's sponsored by Colorado Powersports like ttt said. Ricky finally won ROR last year (Open sportbike class) and has run Daytona many, many times as well as racing with a team that finished in the top 10 in the Suzuka 8 hour endurance race in Japan. At age 45 he doesn't have many competitive years ahead of him so I'm happy to see Ricky do so well at Daytona.
Cycles of Boulder is now Colorado Powersports/Boulder east..Yes, Ricky was a salesman there but I dont know if that is still the case. Anyway, congratulations Ricky!! BTW, why would he or anyone else not have many competitive years left at age 45??? /images/icons/wink.gif
Ok, ok, let me rephrase that. With all the racing experience that Ricky has under his belt he's a seasoned racer with many years ahead of him. Even if he did start racing in 1979. /images/icons/laugh.gif
Pretty sure I watched him plow into an air baracade at the PPIR race last year. I think it was him that did it anyway, it didnt look too fun. Always wondered how he was. Great guy tho, and a great racer.
Its amazing what can happen when you take 5 of the top guys outa racing one race /images/icons/wink.gif Of course the guy who finished in last place could whip me on a Ninja 250 with me on my 1k for sure I'll bet, hehe.
That was way cool tho to hear his name called 10th place/images/icons/smile.gif I taped the race for JSmith, but he never came by to pick it up, well, not yet anyway.
Gratz to the home crowd on that one! Go Ricky! Wahoo!
