MY TRIPS TO LA

Posted: January 18, 2017 in Uncategorized

Since most of our tracks are under water, I have taken a couple of trips to LA to do a little riding and to start getting into race shape.

Because I have been in LA the last two weekends I was able to catch a couple supercross races.  Because I have been doing more practicing than playing I haven’t been able to spend the day playing at supercross but I have been able to watch some really great racing.

This weekend I was able to hang out just a little with my Wienerfam.

And my 51 Fifty Family

It was so fun to be able to say Hi to everyone before the races started.

Then it was back to riding again early in the morning.

It has been a long couple of weeks.  Really Fun, But Really Long.

Because I was hurt a few months back I wasn’t able to qualify to race in the Los Angeles Loretta Regional race.  So, this last weekend my parents and I drove to Washougal Washington to try to qualify for Loretta Lynn’s.

wa9

We parked right next to the track and we watched all the different classes riding on the track on practice day.

wa2

It had rained in Washington during the week and the weather was in the 90’s on Friday, Saturday and Sunday so the track was very hard and slippery throughout the weekend.  They kept putting water on top of it because of the heat and people were having a hard time getting through the track and especially on the whoops.

wa4

On Saturday I raced 85 7-11 Limited which is a stock 85 class.  There were 26 bikes in that class and to qualify I had to get in the top 4 for the day.  In both my races on Saturday I had really bad starts.  See…

wa10

I had to work my way through a lot of racers to try to get up to the front.  While I was passing people the front racers were stretching out and I was doing my best to work through as fast as possible.  I was able to finish both races in 3rd place which gave me a 2nd place overall finish.  This is a picture of me in the top 5 tent after the race.

wa6

On Sunday I raced 85 7-11 Mod.  After the bad starts I had on Saturday, I was ready on Sunday to get great starts and be up front battling for the lead.  I came off the line in the first race and had a great start I was in 3rd place going up the hill and then my bike jumped into neutral and I almost went over the bars.  I put it back into gear and kept racing around the turn in 4th gear and then the bike went into neutral again.  I wasn’t able to jump any of the jumps or go too fast because the bike would keep going into neutral and I didn’t know if the bike was going to go forward or stop.  I finished the race but with each lap I would get passed by riders that were clearing the jumps.  Something had broken in my transmission and my hope to finish in the top 4 was over in that class.

wa3

I was super upset that I wasn’t able to qualify in the mod class and very excited that I was able to get a ticket in the stock class and will be able to race at Loretta Lynn’s.

wa7

When I got home from Washington it was like Christmas……I had deliveries from Von Zipper Goggles, DVS Shoes, Lucas Oil, and 51 Fifty Energy Drink.  Thanks for all the great swag, I have the best sponsors!!!!!

wa8

See you next weekend at the races!

I would like to wish everyone a Happy Memorial Day….and say Thank You to all past, present, and future military!

red6

I know that Memorial Day is to honor the people who have died serving our country and it is very sad that there has been so many.

red4

Now that I am older, and my brother-in-law is in the Army and my sister lives in another state, I know a little more about the sacrifice everyone in the military makes.  It is sad that so many great people died to protect our country.

HAPPY MEMORIAL DAY

red5

My birthday was on January 18th and I was so excited when I found out that AMP was having a race at Oatfield on my birthday.  My parents took the trailer to the track so I could spend the weekend with my friends and race on Sunday.  Practice on Saturday went really well and I had so much fun riding.

jan14

When I woke up on my birthday Sunday morning I had a high fever and was soooooo sick.

jan12

It was not the best way to wake up and I was so mad that I couldn’t race.  I went from being super hot to having the chills and I was sore all over so my parents packed up the trailer and we headed home.  I spent my whole birthday in bed.

jan13

Although I spend the next few days in bed, I did get some very awesome gifts for my birthday that I was able to enjoy late.  I got an XBox One which is very cool

jan17

I got Blue Beats that sound amazing

Jan2

Yamaha sent me a huge box of swag so I can look totally fitted!

jan15

51 Fifty Energy Drink hooked me up with the new Fruit Punch drink….make sure you ask me for one at the track, you have to try it.

jan16

Von Zipper sent me new goggles and tear offs that are so sick

Jan1

And so many other awesome gifts….. So bummed that I couldn’t race, but thank you everyone for all the amazing gifts!!!!!!

This week my parents threw me a Blue Party.  It was a party to celebrate my new Thousand Oaks, Yamaha contract and all of my other sponsors for the 2015 race season.  We had so much fun and a ton of my friends and family came to the party.

LETS GO RIDE!

 

This last week Supercross riders came to my home town.  On Friday night I went to Mach 1 Motorsports to see some of the riders up close.  I first got to see Ryan Dungey and I brought an old picture for him to sign for me.  The picture was from my first trip to Washougal, Washington to race when I had my “bicycle accident” and Ryan Dungey gave me his signed gloves. (If you forgot about “the accident”, you can see some information at CLEARED TO RACE post I did after the accident.)  Ryan Dungey loved the pictures and Ryan and  Ken Roczen kept asking me a ton of questions…it was really cool.

SX10

I got a couple pictures of Dungey checking out the picture before he signed it and of Roczen….also had Justin Brayton sign it as well because he was also at the signing.   They had a lot of other riders that I also had sign stuff like Josh Grant.  It was totally cool, thank you Mach 1.

SX1SX2SX3

The next day was the big show in Oakland and my whole family had so much fun!

SX7

I got to hang out with the 51 Fifty Energy Drink / Moto Efx riders and we had a lot of fun!  It was really nice to be able to cheer them on in person and watch them ride live.  Joe from 51 Fifty hooked the family up with lots of cool stuff and we all got some very nice sweat shirts…..which we really needed because it was FREEZING.  Thank you Joe, Carlos and 51 Fifty Energy Drinks.

SX6SX8SX9

Moto Efx did an awesome job on the graphics on the bikes.  Larry did something that made the graphics reflective under the lights that was totally awesome.

SX5

Had a great time and I have a lot more to tell you about, but you will have to wait…….  Check back soon to see who I interviewed while I was at the races, YOU WON’T WANT TO MISS IT.

After New Years I went to Los Angeles to do a little practicing and to go to A1 for the Supercross race.

20130109-074041.jpg20130109-074051.jpg20130109-074110.jpg I went to some of the race tracks that I have been to before like Milestone, Perris and Pala and I also went to The Ranch for the first time. The track was really fun but it was super, super cold and very, very windy. The track had some sandy parts and was a fast track with a few big jumps.

20130110-124145.jpg20130110-124139.jpg20130110-124134.jpg

My Mom took this picture of me that I thought looked really cool, but….maybe someone can teach her how to set her camera up so she can take pictures at night. Lol

20130110-124126.jpg

Supercross was sooo much fun! I saw a lot of my friends there and the races were awesome because all of the big names were back from injury and ready for battle. With so many great riders on the line, a lot of people were surprised with many of the finishes.

20130109-074142.jpg20130109-074128.jpg20130109-074152.jpg

I got to hangout in the 51 Fifty Energy Drink Pitts and all of the guys were awesome.  Joe hooked me up with a lot of products….Thank you Carlos, Joe and 51 Fifty!…..especially the 51 Fifty girls!

20130110-124614.jpg20130110-124607.jpg20130110-124555.jpg

  Moto Efx did an awesome job on the graphics for the bikes. They used reflective stickers they look 3D…so cool.

20130109-144551.jpg

Lufo’s Kustom Designs hand painted all the helmets that also popped in the lights…he does amazing work.

20130109-144615.jpg

The boys looked amazing and were ready to go racing. They had really great qualifying times and were riding really great but with a couple bad starts and a bad crash they were unable to make it out of the LCQ….look for them to make some noise in Phoenix.

Last week it rained a lot, but the weather was clear for the weekend.  Saturday’s practice was kind of a mess, but Sunday got better.  Oatfield had practice on Saturday and we went to do some riding.  When we got to Turlock it didn’t look good…… We couldn’t see the track because the fog was everywhere.

hunt1

It took several hours for the sun to come out and we could see the track.  Once the track was clear we saw that they had cut off a few sections of the track because of the mud from the rain and other sections of the track was really thick.   I had to wait until they let the kids on the track and then I was ready to go.

hunt2

The track was not very good, but it was good practice and I rode well.  Everyone at the track was not happy with the conditions, and most of the kids left early.  We finished our practice and headed home to wash all the mud off the bikes.

On Sunday I went riding at MMX, I was able to ride the main track and the sand track all day.  I got there first thing in the morning and I was able to ride a couple of hours with the big bikes and we had a lot of fun battling.

During my brakes I passed out some 51 Fifty Energy Drinks and flyers from 51 Fifty and Moto Efx Graphics.  All of the guys loved the drink and they were ready to keep riding.

It was really cool that the Lawrence family came all the way to Marysville to watch me ride.  The whole family and the Moto Efx Team are amazing and the really care about the sport and the riders.  Thank you guys for coming out in the cold, you guys rock!

This last weekend was the start of the Dodge National Race in Sacramento….which I can’t race in because of my wrist. 😦
I am excited that my 51 FIFTY team has still let me take part in the week long event. Sunday I took my bike to the track and as a team the bikes all got make overs.

20120926-023254.jpg

Sunday was move in day for all the riders and the lot was getting full fast. The 51 FIFTY rig looked awesome and I was very excited to see my bike under the tent.

20120926-023139.jpg20120926-023127.jpg

We are all sporting some very cool red and white graphics and all the bikes on the team now match. I love the new colors and design and can’t wait to see it on the track. It was really hard working on my bike with only my left hand but we all worked together and it came out awesome.

20120926-023200.jpg20120926-023207.jpg20120926-023215.jpg

After we worked on bikes, we got to hang out and relax for a little.

20120926-023229.jpg

Then we put all the bikes upstairs in the hauler. It is really cool to see my bike up away with the pro bikes…..hoping to be on one of the pro bikes one day.

20120926-024105.jpg

Thank you Larry from Moto Efx for the cool graphics, you did great….as usual.

20120926-023341.jpg

Thank you Micheal from 51 FIFTY for letting me be a part of Dodge even though I am not riding. You always make me feel welcome and I really appreciate everything you do for me.

20120926-023348.jpg

Later this week I will be back at the track not riding, but supporting my team. Check back later for the behind the scene look at Dodge from a spectator instead of a rider this year.

20120926-023320.jpg

Since we are getting ready to go to the Nationals we have been doing a lot of practicing and getting my bikes all dialed in.  I thought you might like to see another video of a practice at 408MX this last week.  I had my 51 FIFTY Helmet Cam on as I went through the practice.
