No Meiring For AFM 4-Hour At Sears Point

Copyright 2002, Roadracing World Publishing, Inc.<BR><BR>Forget that report about Tony "The Tiger" Meiring riding with Michael Hannas and Ken Hill in the AFM 4-hour at Sears Point this weekend.<BR><BR>Meiring has decided against riding the 4-hour after consulting with Kawasaki Road Race Manager Mike Preston.<BR><BR>"It was never 100% that I would do it," Meiring said early Friday evening. "I said that I wanted to do it but that I would have to check with Preston, and I actually had a call into him. I told everybody I had a call into Preston.<BR><BR>"When he called me back, he said he doesn't want me to go ride around for 4 hours on a bike I'm not super familiar with, and have something happen that could hold me back for some testing that's coming up. It was a mutual agreement (not to do it)."
