Default WELL I WON MY FIRST A OPEN RACE!!!

     

The beautful day started out with me waking up at 7 and putting on my new Pirelli MT32 front tire and MT16 rear. Then after I loaded up my bikes, I headed to the race. Well, In the wholeshot, I was 3rd. I passed some guy and was 2nd, then, about a mile later, I got a flat. I was so p*ssed off!!!! So I went back to the truck and loaded up my bike. 20 minutes later after I was already out of my ridin gear, a miracle happened!!!! They were gonna restart the race an hour later because everyone was getting lost because someone tore down a banner on the track! That has got to be the luckiest thing to ever happen to me! So I fixed my flat and pushed my bike to the startin line. I went back to the truck and drank 3 bottles of water and took a potassium pill. After I got dressed again, I went to the riders meeting, and the race was gonna be an hour plus one lap. Alright, the wholeshot, the flag dropped and woah, my bike doesnt start. 30 seconds later I find out someone turned off my gas. So I take off and am running last place, wow. I caught up to the pack about halfway through the first lap. I was passin people like no other. I seriously was going as fast I have ever been. In one spot of the track there was a straight away about 300 yards long, 5 A open guys were in front of me... I just dumped the clutch and gave my bike all the gas it had and passed ever single one of them... By the end of the first lap I went from dead last to 4th. There was a pretty tight and hard bottleneck hill that was on the course, and when I got to it there was bikes everywhere. By then I had caught up to a few pros too! I just gave it gas and the Gas Gas went up the hill.... heck yes, now I am with the top 3. So we are switchin back and forth havin a good time, then I wreck. It sucked! I had some pine tree or cedar tree or something down my shirt and it was annoying the crap out of me! But I caught up to the 1st and 2nd place real quick and we hit lapper traffic. On the third and last lap, we got to the hill again. There was maybe ONE line to go up it.... I bet that there was 15 bikes pilled up. Well, apparently 1st and 2nd place didnt know how to climb a hill because I passed both of them there. I never saw them again. I started to catch up to more and more PROS. I won by 50 seconds....... Well thats all I can say about that... Oh yeah and I got 6th overall out of like 100 or something.

I was going waay over my head. Go, Blow, or put a hole in the fence is what my dad kept telling me of my aggressive riding. you did good man. Glad you came out on top.
