shooter Simon Cudby was at the Elsinore track today and ran into Team Makita Suzuki rider Ivan Tedesco
. Today Ivan was cleared by his doctor to start riding, and he headed straight to the track to put in his first laps since his practice accident at the Toronto SX in early December. Ivan said that his fitness was good, and with the long series ahead, he would try his best to race at this Saturday's opener in Anaheim to get some early points. According to his trainer, Derin Stockton, Ivan's hand injury is about 95 percent healed.
