It has been raining a lot at home which is good because we need water, but it is really bad for a motocross racer.  I was excited to race this weekend and not only did we get more rain but I also got really sick.  I wasn’t able to go to school on Thursday and Friday, and on Saturday I still felt a little sick.  Because we got a lot of rain the practice on Saturday was cancelled and everyone was going to show up on Sunday and race.  I was feeling better Saturday evening and I really wanted to race so we drove to LACR.  Sunday I wasn’t 100% but I was feeling a lot better.  It was fun to hang out with my friends and get back on my bike.

A couple quick laps of practice and then it was time to start racing.

My starts were much better this weekend and I was able to get a few holeshots.

The track got really rough towards the end of the day.  My dad made changes to my bike before each moto and I was feeling very comfortable.

First race of 2017

So after The Mammoth race last year I started traveling and practicing for nationals.  As you know I got hurt and had two surgeries and have not been able to race in the last 8 months.  This weekend was my first race back at Glen Helen.  It was a Road To Mammoth qualifying race and there was a ton of people there.  The track was really deep and very, very rough.

Practice on Saturday was great.  A lot of riders on the track so we I had a lot of different battles and practiced hard to get back into race mode.

My first gate in 8 months was not the best!  I was racing in the supermini class on my 85. (I practiced on my supermini but felt more comfortable on my 85 on the track) I came off the line great and when I shifted I hit neutral.  By the time I got going again I was really far back in last place.

I was able to battle for all five laps and made it up to 6th place.  Not bad for the start and being down on power.  I guess I have to remember not to hit neutral on the start!!!

It was fun to see a lot of my friends back at the races.  I had a lot of friends cheer me on at the line and watch the races throughout the day.
