2014 by the Numbers

 was a big year with 79 days of racing.  I was keen to tone it down and focus more on good results at select races in 2014.  This worked out, but I still lost control towards the end of the year and ended up with 64 race days.  “No thanks” is still a hard thing to say when it comes to opportunities to race in foreign lands.  Here are the numbers from this past year!
