In 2004, Dave was plagued by recurring mechanical problems on his 1996 Honda CBR600F3. But when it was running fine, he managed to shame racers on newer and faster bikes, finishing on the podium almost every single time in both Novice classes. He finished on the podium a total of eight times (four times in each Novice class), with two 1st place finishes on the same weekend. Unfortunately, he had to sit out the last 3 races of the season due to a broken shoulder blade. Dave is all healed up and anxious to get back on the track with his new bike.
