Getting bike and gear ready for this weekends race. It will be the final night race of the summer. That's too bad because I like riding in the dark. My Cyclops light works great! It's helping prepare me for a 24 hour race.....

Found a new place to practice Murphy's MX in Red Rock, TX - they have both motocross and a trails course. Best of both worlds. It wasn't too crowded and there were some fast riders out there. They are only open once a month. We will be going back again. Had a good time riding. And it's a good thing my mom ordered my new ASV levers last week because I went down and broke the stock brake lever while practing.

Got my first motocross win today in the schoolboy class. First race on the YZ125. Rode hard and had a good ride. Also rode the 250 novice, it was tough and I got fifth. Will keep on practicing.

I rode in my first night race last weekend. Got set up with a Cyclops Solstice headlight for my helmet. I was a little worried since I had never riden at night and didn't know what to expect. The course was marked well but it was really dusty. Could catch the guy in front of me but never could get by him. Too hard to see when I was close to him. Ended up second. I will get him next race. Had a lot of fun!

We headed out to Georgia last week to race in round 2 of the GNCC series. It was a long drive but it was well worth it. I ride the 200 Schoolboy class. Last year I had bike troubles but this year was a different story.
I was ready and my bike (moved up to a 125yz) was ready. It rained Friday night and Saturday morning so the track started out a little slick but it got better. I was in second place until I got stuck on a hill. It took me a little while to get unstuck and back on the track. A couple of guys passed me while I was stuck so I ended up forth. I had a good time riding and I am looking forward to racing them again.

The 2012 season has started out good. Placed 4th in the Saturday Open B 1hr - lost my clutch on the Honda 150 the last lap but came back Sunday and won the Sunday Open B 2hr race on my yz125! Liked riding the bigger bike.
Looking forward to the next race in a few weeks.

Sunday, the 2011 TORCS season ended. It was a fun weekend of racing. The weather was great. I ended up 1st in the 250F C race and 1st overall for the Saturday 2:30 race. I rode hard and had a good race. I got to ride a Yamaha 125yz and loved it! Sunday I was back on my crf 150 and I ended up 2nd in the supermini. I was in front until I had a hard crash. But I still ended up in 2nd place

With the last race coming up in TORCS this weekend, we are trying to get bikes fixed from GNCC races. Worked on the clutch and top ends on them. Hopefully all the parts will come in on time and we can get them on the bikes.

The races on Friday and Sunday didn't go as planned. Never been to a race where you didn't ride the course first. Friday it was really cold and muddy. The temperature was a shock being from Texas where it was still in the 80's. The mountains were a new experience for me. I lost my clutch on the second lap and had to pull off. Mountain and no clutch = no fun. Sunday the weather was better. Got off to a better start and was doing well. Then blew the top end. Couldn't believe it. I was very dissapointed and mad. However, overall it was a good experience. I learned alot from the trip. Next trip we will do things a little different like allow for a little extra travel time, spend more time going over and preping the bike, get there early enough to walk / bike some of the course, and have gear for different weather conditions so all was not lost. It was definitely a learning experience and I look forward to the next one!
