OATFIELD MX RACE IN TURLOCK

My family went to Turlock on Friday night to race at Oatfield MX Track.  We got to the track late and went right to bed.  When we woke up Saturday morning I was ready to practice.

Although I have raced at Oatfield before, they don’t have many races or practices there and we don’t often get to ride on the track.  It has been a long time since I was last at the track and it was really awesome, the track conditions are a little different from what I am used to.  It was a really good practice weekend for me on several different kinds of track conditions in one place.  In the morning the track was super wet with deep sand.  The track dried out and was super dusty and slick.  As the track dried it got really rough with huge bumps  all over the track.  When the water truck wet the track, it was still rough and now the sand was wet again.  Because it was about 100 degrees it would dry quickly and again become slick and dry.

65cc race I got 5th out of 17 riders (1st place in my class) and in the second race I got 6th out of 22 riders (2nd place in my class)

85cc race I finished 8th out of 16 in the first race and 3rd out of 16 in the second race. (4th place overall)

During practice on Saturday I fell over the back of the step up.  I was clearing the step up but this time I got a little sideways and landed wrong and crashed.  I bite two holes in my tongue that made it look like snake fangs…..I guess I need to make sure I don’t stick out my tongue when I am racing.  🙂

Race day was really long because they had 21 motos, over 300 riders and 100 degree heat.  The weekend was really good practice for me, I had a lot of really fast riders in my classes and riding with the older kids really pushed me.
