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.
It’s been a fun month so far! Max qualified for Loretta’s in the 65, 10-11 stock and the 65, 7-11 open classes. He qualified in the SW region at the Ranch in Anza, California.
We are leaving today to go to Mammoth! Mike will be racing on the Vet days and Max will be racing Mini days.
We will be home for a few weeks and then head to Ponca and Loretta’s.
Max was also asked to represent team USA for the 2013 Junior Motocross World Championship held in the Czech Republic! The race is a week after Loretta’s. He’s very excited to race in Europe and have a great experience.
Max and Mike were also asked to ride at the Motosport ride day and they had a blast! (Thank you Jarrod)
In addition to all this motocross, Max’s brother Jack graduated High School, Valedictorian. And he will attend college at the University of Oregon.
We have had a busy month and I don’t think it its going to slow down anytime soon.
We appreciate everyone of our sponsors and Max loves representing each and every one of you. He is working hard and having fun.
Hello to everyone,
We finally made it back to Oregon after five weeks of training and racing!
The first stop was a Mammoth qualifier at Competitive Edge MX Park, where he placed 1st in both of his 65 classes. And he placed 6th in the 85, 7-11 class. It was a very windy weekend and Max had to be on his game. He had gotten blown off the track when he was on his 85 where he crashed and Mike had to fix his bars! It was still a good weekend and a start to an exciting month.
We then headed to Texas where we trained at the Masterpool’s for a couple of days before heading to Millcreek MX Park in Pell City, Alabama. Max loves that track and had placed 1st in the 65 stock and mod class, 2nd in his 65 open class, a 2nd in his 85 stock, and a 3rd in the 85 mod class. It was a three moto format and he was on the podium quite a bit! He also won the wakeboard for being “best of the best” in the mini class. Which means that he won the most motos. He was super pumped!
Max and Mike headed to Oakhill Nationals by themselves while I went home for the week. Max ended up with a 1st in the 65 stock, a 2nd in the 65 mod, a 3rd in the 65 open, a 12th in the 85 stock and mod classes. He had a few get offs and fought hard to come back and podium!
The last national was at Freestone MX Park, one of the most fun and favorite races, where Max had placed 1st in all three of his 65 classes. In his 85 classes he had some get offs and we pulled him out of his last 85 mod class. He placed a 16th in the stock and a 19th in the mod class. He was disappointed in himself for not doing better in the 85 classes and crashing too many times. I’m thankful that he wasn’t hurt and we finished off the month strong.
Overall, the five weeks were fun, but tough being away from Max’s brother and sisters. We are very proud of Max! He is excited to qualify for Loretta’s and get ready for Mammoth.
We are very grateful that we have the help from all of you and appreciate everything that you do!
PS: Max had 6 -1st places, 3-2nd places and 2-3rd places.
Mike also, had a good month with 3-1st places, 2-2nd places and 2-3rd places!
