2009 Race Report: Kinetic Airways



Here's a Sculpture!

Kinetic Airways

Bob Buerger of Frederick brought back Kinetic Airways for its tenth year. After a string of technical breakdowns in recent years, he was still trying to ACE the course for the fifth time. This year, he cleared the water entry and used his broad temporary treads to easily navigate the sand and mud. But he got a flat tire, and then another, which made progress much more difficult. Yet he persevered, calling one of the judges on his cellphone to ensure that the finish line remained open. (The World Championship in California has a time limit.) By the time he crossed the finish line, the awards ceremony was about to begin—but he achieved his ACE.
