Hey everyone just a quick note to say that I had a great race at the 4-st nationals. I had some trouble in the TT race on sat. First I got second in my heat race but in the main I was running 4th when the flywheel broke ending the race. My ACE teammate was riding awesome but had some bad luck. After the race the ace team got my quad running again and I was ready for the mx.
In the mx race on Sunday we had a full gate of 23 pro's lined up for the start. I got a 5th place start on my ACE racing Cannondale against fully team built kawis and crf 450f. Moved into 3rd fairly quickly and had some great battles until I got some rocks stuck in my front wheel and brake caliper. Not the first time! It did bend the caliper bracket so I lost my front brake and I fell back to a 4th place finish in the first moto.
Now for the second moto start, I was going into the first turn in 3rd place when the two leaders tangled and I almost hit them so I hit my brakes to avoid the crash putting me back to 6th. I made some good moves and worked my way into second. Finishing in second and fourth place gave me 2nd overall for the race.
My Cannondale ran great but the other top pros are starting to get some HP in there motors so we will be working with SouthBayMoto to get me some extra HP soon.
