View from my spin cycle… Wife asks me “what you riding that for?” said “to get back on track with my life!” it’s all I have done for over half my life damn near. I’m not racing full time anymore but when I do I want to be like I use to be. It was my life style, and having my heart shit come up 2 years ago threw a wrench in my gears. Not to mention balancing that with having a family! Its tough. The only cardio was on the bike, motos, and sprints. If my heart stops tickn doing something I love it’s better than sittn on the couch right! Hahah (it’s not gna stop just might skip a beat…. Or two!) Getn back to the old me!
Ok this was my first race on the new yzf450 yamaha. And it wasn’t that great, but was definitely needed track time. It allowed me to make some adjustments to the bike and get some good gate time in before the sx rounds I’m going to attend. Racing the bike on a clean track I was able to find out my rear shock spring was too stiff! But we made some adjustments soon as I got back and now were moving forward! I finished 13th in the 450 main.
Me and Esteban roll up to Waco to do the Oreilly Ax fri-sat nite. Ol Vernon Mckiddie hooks me up with his crf250 to ride and tries to sabatage me! The bike has a snapped clutch cable, smoked clutches, and knobs missing on the rear wheel! Well fri nite got my doors blew off but sat I turned it up! It was a fun weekend of racing and eatn good!
Rode a lil supercross thanks to Bollz Extreme Sports letting me ride on a brand new 08 Honda 450! And raced the +25 A class and attempted to race the 450 pro but hit a rider down in the sand whoops and blew a hole out of the radiator! So I ended up only riding the +25. It was a good weekend hanging out doing a lil riding, and hunting, and gaming it up with some Mx vs Atv Reflex at Freestone County Raceway. My buddy Draaw’s came out and took some pics of me riding sx, Thanks Marilyn!!!
I raced the Houston Sx in the 450 class. It was a fun event, my daughter Cayleigh got to attend her first sx race ever! she had so much fun watching and loved the opening ceremonies! I rode pretty decent considering lack of time on the 450. But I just went out and winged it, and did my best. I look forward to dialing in the bike for outdoors this summer!
I raced The HOH FMF Texas Winter Series at Freestone in the vet class and finished 3rd overall. I won the first moto then fell the second moto and finished 3rd. Another lap and I would have passed them for the lead. I was right on them at the finish line. It was a fun weekend of racing!
The Texas State Championship was a good one this year! I won the +25 class, struggled in the A classes. Freestone Tone (Tony Miller) won the Vets Unite class!
I raced at Swan’s Pro Challenge. I didnt finish as good as I wanted to. I only got one good start all weekend, and a start is what I needed. The racing conditions have been the same for several years there, its very hard to separate riders. And its difficult to pass. But thats what makes it challenging. Better luck next year!
I raced at Swan Round 3 of the Pro Circuit Series. I finished 2nd in the 125 pro, and 5th in the 250 pro. It was a good weekend of racing!
