We had a great time at the Dodge Nationals last week! It was good to see all of our moto friends and families. It was Max’s first race back with only four weeks of practice. We were very happy that he was on the podium twice with a 2nd in the 85 7-11 mod, a 3rd in the 85 7-11 stock and a 4th in the 85 7-15 open. It was a fun week of racing and getting some gate time.
Now, its back to school and getting practice in for Mini O’s!! We have never been back to Mini O’s and we are very excited to go.
We also want to thank everyone for their support and help. We are very grateful that we have such awesome sponsors!!
It has been awhile for an update! Max is all healed up and very happy that he is racing again. We decided to race the California Classic and World Minis this month and had a great time. It was good to get some gate time and ride a rough track.
The California Classic was an awesome race with some great riders to compete against. Max had three solid motos on his 85 mod. class and ended up with a 2nd. In his 85 stock class he ended up with an 8th. He had a few get offs and a little bad luck. He is always learning and trying to improve.
We took the two days off and went to the beach to play before the World Minis. It was a nice break.
Max had a good week at the World Minis. He had great starts and solid motos. His results were 1st in the 85 stock, 1st in the 85 mod, and 2nd in the supermini thru 13. The supermini class was a challenging race for him with his little wheels and his mod bike! I’m thinking there will be a supermini in the near future!
We all had a great time seeing all of our friends and wonderful sponsors. We could not do it with out you!!
Thank you very much for all of your support. Everything is appreciated so much.
Hello to all of our wonderful sponsors,
The big news here is, Max has decided to ride for KTM Orange Brigade. He tested the 85sx during Christmas break and he likes it!
Mike and Max had a great time riding the southern California tracks, getting some good practice in. They ended their break going to A1 and having a blast. Max will continue to practice at home as much as possible before Spring Nationals.
If the weather is nice enough, Max will be training with Monte Hill at the Hill MX Ranch.
Our plan for Spring Nationals is to go to Oakhill and Freestone. We would love to go to Millcreek. But its too much time off school, for Max. Millcreek is one of Max’s favorite tracks and he is bummed that he won’t be able to race it this year.
I will send some pictures of Max on his new KTM as soon as I get some.
We appreciate all of your support and we are looking forward to an awesome year.
We made the decision to get off the 60’s and focus on the 80’s starting with the Dodge Nationals.
As for Dodge, Max has picked up his pace and was running in the top 5 of his 85 age class. But on Saturday during his third moto of the supermini he crashed during the uphill whoop section. He swapped out and broke his arm. (not the same one from Mammoth) When we took him to the doctor yesterday, I had asked him to check his knee since it was hurting him before racing Dodge. We found out that he had broken the bottom of his knee cap. I have know idea when that had happened. He is one tough kid!
Unfortunately, Max will be out 6-8 weeks healing up. The good news is that he will be able to hunt and fish with his dad and brother.
I will keep you updated when we get healed and back on the bike.
Thank you for all of your support. We appreciate it very much.
