Posts Tagged ‘Las Vegas’

Last week was the big event!  I did my first ever supercross race on TV at MEC in Las Vegas.  The week before the race I had several sponsors that helped me get myself and my bike ready for the race.  I am very thankful for all the support I get throughout the year!!!!   I was able to get a private ride day at the Yamaha track to help get prepared which was awesome.  The guys from Bills Pipes came out and worked on my bike.  The Grindstone Compound gave me lots of tips in tricks that I would need for the race in Vegas

When we got to Vegas we had a day to relax, do virtual reality games, get a henna tattoo and have a little fun.

 

My Dad had my bike looking awesome and when we got to the track all my sponsors gave me all my gear and I was looking pretty good!

In the morning I had a track walk.  We walk the track and figure out what the strategy will be for practice and the race.

We had two qualifying sessions that we were practicing while trying to qualify for a gate position for the race.

My bike and I were under the 51 Fifty Energy Drink tent and after practice we signed autographs for people.

I filmed a video for Wienerschnitzel.

I got advice and help from several people helping me throughout the day.

 

When it got dark the lights come on in the stadium and the place was packed with people cheering very loud.  We waited for the camera because the race was aired live and then it was time to race.

In my first race I didn’t get the best start but was able to stay on two wheels and finish in 10th place.  In the second race I got a better start and finished in 7th place for a 7th place overall.

The whole event was so much fun!  I learned a lot and can’t wait until next year!

Both my parents had to work on Saturday last week.  When they got off work my grandparents took them straight to San Francisco to get on an airplane.

An hour and a half later (7:30pm) my parents landed in Las Vegas to look at a new moto van.

By 10:00pm my Mom and Dad had bought the van and started an all night drive back home with the van.

I stayed at a friends house for the night and they took me to practice and Mom and Dad meet me at the track after driving all night and not sleeping.

My parents are so awesome and do so much for their kids!  I can’t wait to get the new moto van all set up.  Thank you Mom and Dad for driving all night and getting our new van.

Now who wants to wrap it?
