COEUR D’ALENE, Idaho — Weeks ahead, Tia Flynn is haunted by the race.
At night, she dreams of the course she has tumbled her motorcycle across for years, the hills she has crashed on, the rivers where her bike has been baptized into competition.
Feeding the addiction, she watches the online video of races past. She takes in the roar and growl of 1,000 bikes along an endless stretch of starting line.
