It's been a really long time since my last update. But I've won all the Cross races and done fairly well at The Barn. Well Yesterday we got back from the Grand Nationals in Oklahoma. It was alot of fun and I did really well. On Thursday there was gate practice and I got the chance to get a feel for the track. On Friday it was the Race of Champions and I made it to the main and got a 6th because a kid crashed onto my back wheel. On Saturday it was qualifying for the Grands. I made it in my first moto so we didn't have to stay all day and that was nice. On Sunday it was the big one. Made it through semis and into the main. At the start I got boxed out and by the end moved up to 4th place by the finish. Thanks for every ones support.

At Lapham Peak I got 1st in both the time trials and the cross race. Fun course except for the hill climb where you had to get off and go over the barriers at the top of the hill. That hurt a lot. At Sheboygan I got a 3rd due to some crashes caused by this kid in front of me who stopped right in the middle of every hill. One of them I hit my ribs pretty hard and hurt those. Last weekend I got two 1st places and this weekend we're going up to the WORS banquet and are doing two cross races.

It's been awhile but up at the Cheq. short and fat I got a 2nd in age and a 49th overall so I did pretty good. My dad pulled me the whole race and that helped a lot. Yesterday we had a football game and we lost after having it tied until the 4th quarter and our QB threw an interception which the other team ran in for a TD with a min. 10 to go. Today went to Iola and got 3rd in age and beat Caleb for the 2nd overall for the year. I also got a 2nd in the marathon series. Looking forward to the Cross Season which starts next week. :)

It's been awhile but it's on because we were up at our cabin all last week and school started this week. At Mount Morris I got another 1st and my dad got a 2nd. At the cabin cut down some trees and went fishing. At Spokin' Spoke I didn't go out as hard so I was able to keep it at a nice pace and ride with Bubba for a lap and a half. After the race I went swimming in the lake and that was nice and refreshing. the last 2 days have been football football football and today will be another day of it. Over the weekend I'm hoping to get some riding in. See ya later...

Yesterday and today my dad and I went down to track for states and well it doesn't get much better than 4 golds now does it. Today was the hottest day they could have possibly had to do racing on. But it was still all really fun

Today was the 2nd muddy race of the WORS season. Crystal Ridge sure does get muddy when it rains on the course. Well today Mitch and I got 1st, my mom got 2nd, and my dad got 3rd. Here is a pic. of me after the 1st lap.

This weekend I went to 24/9 Nationals in Wausua and it was as long and as hard as it looked. But all in all it was really really fun. Props to everyone who did it. Here's some pictures from the weekend.

At the Chippewa Valley Firecraker it was very dusty and hot. T he course was very fun. We stayed at my uncles house so his neighbors came with us. At the finish I came in in 2nd place and was only about 1min. behind the winner. So when we went back to my uncles house we swam and relaxed. That week we built a poolside bar and I went for a couple of rides. On Wednesday we went to the snowmobile skips and finished the bar. Last Saturday we went over to the State Criterium and did that. Mitch got win I got 2nd, and Gage got 3rd. Today I'm going down to the track instead of BMX so see ya later.

Well its been awhile and there is a lot to write about. At BMX Nationals down in Rockford we camped which was a lot of fun. But, on Thursday I got a 1st, Friday I got a first, Saturday I got a 5th because I had to unclip because two kids crashed behind me and hit my back wheel. And on Sunday I got a 1st and came home with a big trophy. On all the other days at night we had a campfire and did other stuff to that sort. Last weekend My mom and I drove to Whitewater for a time trial that was like 12.5 miles long and very windy. The next day drove back out to Whitewater and did a crit. that was a little loop around the park. In that Gage and Mitch were there to help me get a 1st so I could have a better chance at winning the omnium. Sunday drove back out to Whitewater AGAIN for a road race. The lap was a lot of fun and would have been more fun if we wouldn't have caught the 15-18 year olds on our first lap around the third turn. We rode past them and the official following us started to yell at us. Then the 15-18 year olds passed us and slowed back down again. So we passed them again and the official yelled at us again. And right before the last hill on our second lap the official said that we were going to let the 15-18 year olds past and we picked up the pace and we finished before they passed us. Mitch ended up getting 1st, a kid from Michigan got 2nd, and I got 3rd which was enough to get me the omnium. I got a Bontrager pump. Tomorrow I'm going to do a road race and head up the Eue Claire and have a happy 4th of July!

Yesterday went to States for road and we had knew what the course was because we had ridden it before. At the start we had to go up the hill and at the top we had to wait for some of the other riders so we got a little break there. After the start we kept it pretty steady except for when another kid from on another team came up and took a pull it went down to about 10mph. On the last hill Mitch attacked from the bottom and no one else went so Mitch got an easy win. Then Gage, Evan, and I went but on the last 50 yards I died and Gage and Evan got me at the line. So Gage got 2nd overall and 2nd in age, Evan got first in 10-12 and 3rd overall, and I got 3rd in age and 4th overall. Today went to the time trial and did that but we didn't stay long enough to see how I did.
So more to come on that later

Saturday headed up to to 9 mile for the Wors race. When we got to the hotel my dad won a raffle to get a free upgrade to a suite with a Whirlpool bathtub. When we got back from swimming in the pool I got in the bathtub and sat in there for awhile and watched T.V. On Sunday went over to the race and got started. My grandparents drove up to the race and watched us race. At the start I got up in the second row. When the race started I got on a wheel and sat for about half the road but the pace was too high so I fell off and got on a slower wheel. At the start of the 2nd lap it started to rain really hard. Then Danny came past on the road so I got on his wheel and stayed with him for a while. When I finished I was cold and muddy. So I went to the car while my dad washed off my bike. After we got the awards for Maddie who got 2nd, my Mom who got 3rd, myself, I got 2nd, and my Dad who got 3rd we went to the Favoli's in town. We had unlimited bread sticks and some good food. Overall we all had a REALLY good weekend.

On Tuesday we went down to the track and I got $4 and I did the constalation race and finished only one lap behind. Not bad for my first time on a track bike since last summer! Yesterday I went to the time trial at Crystal Ridge. Travis beat me by only 6sec. so it's not that bad. Today we won't go on the beatdown because we don't want to get caught in the rain again and my grandparents are in town.

Saturday, May 26, 2007

Today we went over to Crystal Ridge for some riding. Just a little wet down at the bottom of Craters but otherwise it was a nice ride with no hammering just a nice easy ride.

Friday, May 25, 2007

On, Sunday Mitch got a 3rd and Maddie got a second. In the Sport race I got 2nd and my dad also got a 2nd. Yesterday we went to the Beatdown and BOY, was it windy. I started to die so we took a short cut. The last mile and a half it rained on us.

Saturday, May 19, 2007

Well, today Team MARS got their first 1st, 2nd, and 3rd. I got 1st, Mitch got 2nd, and Gage got 3rd. The course was pretty hilly as we had to climb nearly 2,000ft! The lap was about 11.5 miles long and had some wicked fast downhills. On one of the downhills Jeff and The Goat said we got up to 45mph on one of the downhills as they were following us in the box. After the race we drove over to the WORS race in Lake Geneva. The course is pretty technical and hilly. but other than that I think I should do pretty good.

Saturday, April 28, 2007

Today went to Whitnall Park for a crit. Mitch got second and Gage got first. I got fifth.

Thursday, April 26, 2007

Well been a while but I should probably update. Last weekend we drove out to the WCA road race on Saturday and later we went to do some trail work. To stat of the morning we had to get to the road race by 7:30a.m. and get ready to race. When the race started Team Mars got on every ones wheel and just sat. On the last hill I told Mitch and Gage to go. When they went I blocked and didn't let anyone past for about 50ft. Mitch pulled Gage up the last strech and Gage came past to get the win. Then later at trail work we found some pretty cool stuff. Then after the trail work we went for a nice mountain bike ride with Bubba on his trails. On Sunday Maddie and I went on a school trip up to Eagle River and got back yesterday. Today I was surfing the net and found

Well this is the last time you'll be seeing a picture of me at BMX now that the season is over . Well you might have been wondering what I have been doing the last couple of weeks. I've been going to BMX and Parkside. The big weekend at BMX was a good weekend as I came home with the #1 the two last days of it. Then at Parkside I got a 5th, 8th, and 2nd. At BMX I got a third because I had to race the thirteen year olds. Then after the races I went to the Alpha Wings BMX pizza party. While we were at the pizza party me and Mike Murphy got out alot of toys out of the crane games for the little kids which they all liked. Then when we got home my dad, mom, and myself had to go get the rest of our furniture from the sale.
Yesterday I went to Parkside and BMX at parkside Maddie and I got our race cloths and I got some of some of the parts for my mountain bike

Last week Tuesday I got my stiches taken out by my mom.Yesterday at BMX I got a first in age, a second in cruiser, and my dad got a fith in his race. My age was pretty easy as I made it in the first round. But my cruiser was pretty hard but I still made it to the main. The races were alot of fun as always. The last gate practice is this Thursdayand I hope to see you there. The triple point weekend is this week. And on Sunday morning there are Parkside races.

Sunday, February 18, 2007

On Thursday we went out to practice and before the first gate drop I went down going through the rhythm section. I clipped the petal on the first one and flipped over the bars . I was trying to get in an extra petal stroke or two before the rythyms. But I still finished the practice and was really affected by the crash. Today I felt way better and got a first in age and didn't make it to the cruiser main. In crusier I was in 21-25 and about to make it in but then the guy in front of me stopped pedalingand then Joey got next to me and beat me to the line. My dad got a fourth, Sam got a first, Skyler got a third in open and firstinage, Mitch got a third today in age.
Hope to see ya Thursday. . .

Monday, February 05, 2007

Sunday went to Bmx with my dad. Due to the weather, The Super Bowl, and Nationals in Oklahoma there was barely any body there. I got two firsts, my dad got a third, Sam got a first, Russ got a fourth, Ron got a third, and Skyler got a first in age. We were glad to see all of our freinds at the track and at the cross banquet. The banquet was fun and the awards were cool as they usually are. Today my sister Jessica was felling sick and had to come home from school. She is still laying around and feeling a little bit better. Hope to see you all at BMX.

See Ya Later. . .

Today my dad and I went out to BMX in Walworth. It was a small turnout due to the snow and the Nationals in Tennessee. Today Kenny, My dad, and I all got on to Alpha Wings. Ron helped us get on. Thanks Ron. Well, anyways I got two seconds and my dad got a third. There is one kid in my age group who is supposed to be an expert but stays in intermediate. That's OK because we are trying to keep my wins down for nationals this summer and he won't get any points or team points they will even take away all of his points. Thanks Again Ron.
See Ya Later. . .

New Season, New Team

Maddie and I were offered a position on the SRAM team with Goat and Rachel. We accepted the offer and are on the team. We went over because the Hayes team doesn't have a junior team anymore and the SRAM team is focusing mainly on juniors.

The past couple of weeks we have been going to BMX on Thursday and on the weekend. I have been geting mostly seconds and thirds in the races on the weekend. In my age I have been fighting for first and have been going down. Last weekend we went to the Swap meet in Madison and I got some shoes. Ray got all the stuff he needed for his BMX bike he built up. We also finished the Felt cruiser that we needed a fork for. We found a fork at the BMX races the next day. The fork is a nice carbon Bombshell. This week we had a short week at school and didn't have school on Thursday or Friday. Since we didn't have school my dad took off and we went sledding at the park. After that we went to the BMX practice and got some pointers from Ron. Thanks Ron for the help.

See Ya Later. . .

On Thursday my dad and I went to the night ride. It all was going good until my derailleur got ripped off by some stick that reached out and pulled it off. Then I had to finish the ride on a single speed. When I was riding the chain kept titting up and making it harder to ride. The ride was alot of fun. On Saturday we went out to Pets and rode the trails there. In about the first mile Chris went down hard and might have broken some ribs. Then a couple miles later my dad got a flat after a creek crossing and had to go back to the car. While he was changing the flat we did some fun trails by the creek. The ride was long and I think that tody it hurt me a little bit while at BMX. Today at BMX I had a hard cruiser because I had to race 13 cruiser and not 12. Even though I had a hard cruiser I made it in and took a fourth in the main. On my 20 I made it to the main and got a third.

See Ya Later. . .
