I have been waiting since August for the start of the 2012 season! This year we kicked the season off at Mirock Bike Fest in the Washington, DC area. We couldn’t have asked for a better event to kick off the season! The weather wasn’t the greatest for qualifying but for Sundays main events the sun was shining and the weather was beautiful!
Overall the weekend went pretty well for me, I rode really well with the new judging format and was able to take two 4th place finishes for a 4th overall in the XDL Cup. In the Motul Driftstyle event I was able to pass Bill Dixon in the final corner for the win! It was a crazy race and an equally good finish! The Yamaha Generators wheelie race has always been a good event for me and this round was no exception, I wheelied my way into the finals where I was to race Luke “Duke” Emmons. Luke had a little better strategy than me and was able to just beat me to the finish line for the win. It was a great race but I just didn’t have the speed to take out Luke.
It was a great weekend and I am excited for the next four rounds of competition! Already getting the rig packed and ready for Long Beach for the event August 3rd and 4th!
