First of all I just have to thank my entire family, friends, and sponsors! I am so grateful for this opportunity! The new suspension and bikes are incredible, this has been a huge missing piece in the puzzle for me. I could not believe how hard I was able to charge sections. I cant wait to start actually testing and trusting! Overall the first race on the new bikes and new suspension went great! Practice on friday was rained out but they got the track in perfect condition for saturday racing. I just had 450 B stock on saturday. On both my moto's I got taken out though on the starts, so I had to come from last. I felt like I rode really well but they only gave us 4 laps and lap time were around 1:20's! Such a short race! I was able to get 10th overall which means I passed about 10-15 kids. Then sat night the skies opened up and it didn't let up all night or sunday during the day. Crazy mud race! It was a blast! I ended up 3rd and 1st overall! I will have to send you a picture, it looked like that Daytona supercross where the track was just under water. They had to make this really slow section where you could yell out your number to them so they could score it! It felt great to get a win at our first race on the new set up and I just can't wait for this season of racing! Next thing for me now is to just keep training, get my practice bike suspension sent off and get ready for regional's!
