The Motorcycle Cannonball is back on after having to call off Stage Ten. Weather has been harsh on the Southeast with storm after storm plaguing the area. This isn’t the first time the event has been forced to make such decisions; a day has been called off due to weather concerns in every event except 2012.
Some riders reveled in having an extra day off to tinker with their machines and many of the riders used the down time to visit the Barber Motorsports complex in Birmingham AL just a few miles from our hotels. It appears that Mother Nature will start to clear up and play nice for the last part of our journey, but she sure did let us know that she is in charge she put out a roar this afternoon as riders made their way to Tunica, Mississippi battling another series of rain storms along the way. Officials had to work quickly as part of the route was under flash flooding and debris from the rainstorms that were ravaging through Western Mississippi. An emergency checkpoint was set up and disaster diverted with all riders checked in safely at the Horseshoe Casino. Weather looks great for tomorrow which should put smiles on all faces! Next stop Arkadelphia, Arkansas!
