I still miss my dutch friend, Dennis van Hoof here.
I hope he reads this forum once in a while and he will post here.
This guy is doing a great job in the scoreboards recently. Looking forward to speaking (dutch) with him.
I've been emailing him a lot lately, as he sends in all his scores. I'll mention the forums to him. Yes, he's been making some very good scores lately, in all areas.

A fellow biker! Hello Dennis.
First of all, WELCOME!!
But why did it take you so long to find this forum mate?
But...2 months experience and then already reaching those scores???
My goodness. Way to go. I guess I will drop to rank 46 soon then.
Looking forward to seeing you on our gyrotek live competitions (search this forum for more info on them). At this moment I am the only dutch guy there. I do need some assistance to fight the powerball giants in the worlds .
