This last weekend was very eventful!  Saturday morning we got up early and went to Hollister to practice for the race on Sunday.  They had made a few changes to the track and it was really fun to ride.  I did pretty well all day on Saturday and my Dad got my bike suspension working really good.

Saturday after practice we had plans to meet up with my Grandparents and my Great Grandpa to go to a fundraiser to fight autism and cancer that was put on by the Carlos Vieira Foundation.  The event was a Portuguese Bloodless Bullfight Festival and I was excited to take my family and watch the show.  My Great Grandfather is 94 and hasn’t spoken Portuguese since my Great Grandmother died several years ago.  He was so excited to hear everyone speaking Portuguese and even started speaking it himself.  He was so funny and he loved the show.  (Mom, Hailey, Dad, Grandma, Me, Great Grandpa, Uncle Johnny, and Grandpa)

The people and the horses chased the bulls around and got them tired and then different teams tried to jump on the bull and tackle it down.  It is a really fun event and everyone had so much fun.

My sister Hailey works with special needs kids and although she loved the show, it meant even more to her that the event was for such an amazing cause.

Carlos, The Carlos Vieira Foundation and 51 Fifty Energy Drink always put together these awesome events to give back in huge ways and it is amazing how much they do for children with Autism and Cancer.  Thank you so much for all the fun Carlos…… YOU ROCK!

After the show we went back to Hollister to sleep so we can race the next day.  Sunday morning I was ready to go and practice went well in the morning.

In my first race I didn’t have the best start but in the first few turns I moved into second place and was moving in on first place.  I was getting closer to the leader and was getting ready to pass for the lead when my bike slid out on a berm and it kicked back and threw me into the front of the next jump.  My arm got jammed into the ground and I could tell it was not good.  I went to the doctor to see if it was broken, and they said it wasn’t.  woo hoo!  Just a little purple and really sore.

No worries…..Nothing broken……I will be back really soon……

 

I do have to thank all my friends at the track that were very concerned about my crash and helped us get all our stuff packed up so we could get to the doctors.  You are all amazing and it is really cool to have so many awesome people who care about me.

Another funny thing……  On Saturday I also lost 2 teeth.  I lost one tooth in the morning and I lost another one in the afternoon.  So Crazy.
