On two wheels since 3 years old, I grew up riding in Southern California @ Gilman Springs, Beaumont and Ocotillo Wells and riding nearly every weekend with my dad and his friends. There were a bunch of natural outdoor tracks we would rip, hitting natural and man made jumps, berms,...
SInce my last update there's been a lot going on! Had our baby February 20th so I missed the 2nd round of the WORCS series. Got to try and go for redemption in Havasu from my last race that I got 3rd in back in December. I rode like Ricky Bobby, had a top 5 start and let my nerves get the best of me early on in the race. Wound up getting a 15th after a few mishaps with other riders either falling in front of me and leaving me with no where to go, or I was pushing too hard to try and get back the positions I lost. Could've rode smarter, but I wanted the DUB! I woke up Sunday feeling tight and sore from a weird get off that involved me nearly hitting someone dead on in a blind corner, and managed a 9th place which tied my best result for WORCS. Not bad for only being on a bike for 7 months. Yet dissappointing because I've been training and pushing myself, so not getting the results kinda messes with your head a bit.
Late April was WORCS round 5 @ Sand Hollow - I was actually really excited for this race. Showed up for the unclassified site lap Friday with a flat rear tire so I didn't get to go out on the course until the actual race which was a bummer. I pulled a killer start and placed myself in second in the first turn, and took the lead before going under the tunnel which was probably not the wisest choice since I didn't know the track or which direction it was heading in. I wound up getting about halfway up the dunes on the first lap in the lead, hit a rock section and realized I had a flat on my rear tire! Put myself into limp mode to finish the race and get some points although I was hoping to make up some points!
All in all it's been a good learning experience for me to get out and race even if I'm not getting the results I am looking for. It's my first season racing, I hadn't ridden a dirtbike in 17 years so I feel like I'm doin' decent, I still want a top 3 because
