To start thing’s off for this blog I want everyone to note I am sitting on my new couch, flicking through channels and I came a across the movie BMX Bandits. It's an Aussie classic! Nicole Kidman early in her acting career.
Anyways, a lot has happened since my last blog from Guthrie. I have finally moved into my own place - in an apartment, in San Diego. Its nice to be getting settled again and getting back in a good training routine.
My week after Guthrie, Oklahoma race (3 weeks ago) was jam-packed full of furniture shopping and setting up bills. I felt like I was getting very old quickly.
The weekend after Guthrie - Alise, her room mate Laura and I went to the AMA Round 5 of the Super cross series in San Diego. It had rained all Friday and a bit of Saturday so the track was quite slushy and rutted out, but it was still AWESOME to watch. Going to a Supercross race over here was always something I have wanted to do.
It was a little disappointing that Australian Chad Reed didn’t race and Bubba Stewart was out.
However it was cool to see how fast all the next generation guys are: Dungey, Villapoto and Hill. My new favorite sporting personal is Ryan Dungey. He is so good to watch ride and seems like such a level headed person. I love how he is not your typical MX rider, with the bad boy attitude. Good clean-cut kid.
So now that I am back into the swing of things with training, it is full steam ahead getting ready for Oldsmar, Florida and other up and coming races such as the first World Cup in Madrid, Spain - which is a big one for Redline and me.
Last year I competed in the Supercross World Cup's under the wing of Cycling Australia. This year I am stoked to be doing it with Factory Redline. It's good to see factory teams like Redline getting involved in the Supercross series now and recognizing how big it is.
That's about it for now. I have attached some pictures (below) from the Super cross in San Diego, slong with some pics from the past few races in Reno and Guthrie and Nerang Australia:
