Yesterday I went to the cross race in Janesville and raced in the mud and snow real cross style. During the race I had good tires and I was able to come home with a 1st place. Myles was able to hang on for the 2nd place win and he has a shot at taking 2nd overall at the end of the year. After racing the cross race I went to the bmx track and raced age and cruiser. I was able to place 2nd in each of those races. I had a chance to win the age but bobbled and that opened the door for Ryley to get under me and he pinched me in turn 3 and I hit the brakes and he got by and I had to settle for 2nd. Lesson learned. My Dad took 2nd in his cruiser class. While at the bmx races Russell and Ron stopped by for some gates and racing.
Today we went back to the bmx track for a double points race. I took 2nd in cruiser again and took first in age class today. Lesson learned was that if I pedal into turn 1 and hold the low high I will win the race. I was able to manual the double out of turn 1 and then manual the double before turn 2 and that also helped me win the race. I got a nice trophy and a bunch of tokens. My dad took 4th today in cruiser. I had a good weekend of racing. See you at the practice on Thursday.
