I have been having a bit of an up and down season so far, and I was really looking forward to this race to get some good results! The trip started out in Phoenix for the winter nationals. Friday I felt fast in practice but during racing friday night I blew up my back hub in the semi and didn't end up making the main. Not the way I wanted to start the weekend! I got a good dinner in friday night and a new wheel haha. Saturday morning practice I didn't feel that good, my gates were inconsistant and I wasn't feeling very confident. My motto's weren't very good either but I still made it out with a 4-2-3. My semi was stacked and I ended up getting a 3 in it. Main time. This was actually the most confident and calmest I felt all night in the gate, I put all the bad laps behind me and just focused on winning. I ended up with lane 3 and I had a sub-par gate but got on the cranks to the turn, I was going in a bit behind first but carved low and came out of the turn in first and went on to win. I was so relieved to finally get the first win of the year, big weight off my shoulders. Sunday was a mud fest, ended up in motto's with 2-1-1 picked lane 1 in the main and won. I am extremely pumped on how the weekend went, considering how it started and I look forward to the first UCI Supercross World Cup event in Madrid, Spain in a few weeks!
