WFR Honda continue Cartagena test

Graeme Gowland, Alex Lowes and James Westmoreland have their running hampered by rainy weather conditions, but continue to make improvements to the WFR Honda.
WFR Honda overcame inclement weather conditions to get more miles under its belt ahead of the 2012 MCE British Superbike Championship season.

The team, which is the only one of 16 'Elite' entries to have three riders in 2012, travelled to Cartagena in Spain in an effort to get a headstart on its rivals, but a wet morning on the second day of action meant all running was done in the afternoon.

Nonetheless, Graeme Gowland was encouraged by the changes they were able to make in a short space of time and is confident of ending the test on a positive note.

"We had a thunder storm this morning which we were not expecting so we didn't get out on track until this afternoon,” he told the British Superbike website. “It took a while to get some rubber back on the track but we still worked through some suspension changes and we did definitely make improvements. Hopefully we will have some good weather again tomorrow so we can end the test here with a positive final day."

Gowland's team-mates in 2012 will be Alex Lowes and James Westmoreland.

Who monitors this blog? Just thhgout I'd ask. I'm a bit astonished that the leading organization of wilderness medicine has not had anyone respond to this. This saddens me. I'm a Physician Assistant and will attend the September 2010 instructor course as well as the WALS course. In my humble mind, if we are to be involved in this organization, at the instructor level, it is incumbent of us to review materials we may asked to teach. I digress.For those who have not reviewed the draft . it is excellent. Although I'm not a legitament instructor at this time, the AORE has established a great place to start. Decades ago the DOT establish standardized training for EMTs and EMT-Ps. This allows EMTs and all levels of EMS providers to provide care across the nation. This is a step in the right direction for Wilderness First Responders. With involvment in a standardized scope of practice we demonstrate, as a internationally recognized organization , First Responders are the in
