James Bonnett Joins Wasatch Speed Goats

Yes…how cool, I raced against James Bonnett at Zane Grey when he was 14 years old, now James is a Wasatch Speed Goat and he’s back on the trail after a two-year hiatus.

I was having a pint of beer with James today in Park City and he signed up for the Speedgoat 50k, James will line up with Nick Clark, Max King and some friends from across the pond!! Speedgoat 50k will be one of the best races for 2012!
