WINTER NATS... NOT...

I was fortunate to find really great airfare to Phoenix, and my In laws live in Sun City West, just 15 minutes from Speedworld BMX, home of the Winter Nationals for 2011.  We shipped our bikes down, Jim, Eddie, and I.  Oma and Opa were very gracious and put us up for the few days we were in town.  They had a VERY wonderful Irish meal on St. Patty's Day, we even had 3 extra guests, BMXer's Elliot McGrath and Brandon Brown from Stile Industries, and Vet Pro Adam Treadwell from Oregon.  Sorry I don't remember who you ride for Adam...  After a wonderful meal, we headed out to Speedworld, the track was smooth, and FAST, the Big Hill pro stuff I heard was kinda flat, but we didn't have to ride it anyway.  After practice was done, all the guys wanted to go to a bike park on the other side of town. so we threw the bikes in the car and headed across Phoenix, we got there shortly before it closed.  We did get to ride it for a bit, and I should have left my bike in the car...  I wasn't even doing anything cool, just sitting on my bike rolling around the 'pit' and didn't see a little drop off...  With only one hand on the handlebar it shoved the other hand into my gut, tweaked my wrist and threw me on the concrete. I ended up with a sprained wrist and was unable to race all weekend... 

Jim, and Eddie rode well, Jim was fighting for transferrs all weekend but was unable, to get a spot on Saturday as another rider bonzai'd him in the last berm taking himself and Jim out handing the transfer to someone else.  Eddie managed to make semi's Saturday, but making a pass in the first berm and washed out... 

Elliot was the class of the field in the 19-27 Expert class, winning almost every race he was on the track, but the most memorable moment was his huge tire grab over the second pro set jump in the Quarter Finals saturday night...  so at least we got to hang out with a winner  =;^)

So we went to one of the biggest races of the year, ended up with no main events, and a sprained wrist, but had a great time and enjoyed the wonderful weather! 

Even though I didn't get a chance to ride it much, have to thank FELT BIKES, BELL HELMETS, ODI GRIPS, REVOLUTION CYCLE&SKI, for all they do to support me and our team... 

An extra shout out to Colin Stiles, Elliot McGrath, and Brandon Brown, for their help and hospitality at the track!
